【看CP學英文】香港《國安法》正式生效後,壓抑許多倡導民主獨立的聲音,而這些倡導者也想方設法以獨特的方式發聲,像是舉起空白招牌以避免遭到起訴。

The new Hong Kong National Security Law imposed has forced democracy advocates to find new and creative ways to avoid prosecution, including holding up blank placards. 

在這樣的情況下,也難怪許多抗議者透過擷取書籍《論暴政:二十世紀的二十個教訓》內的圖像、文字,表達無聲的抗議。

Some protesters have created placards using slogans taken out of the book “On Tyranny, Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century.”

一名創作者在臉書寫下她閱讀這本書的讀後感想,並創作出一系列貼紙素材,描繪出書中所描述對付各種暴政的「教訓」。

The creator of the pictures posted on Facebook her thoughts after reading the book, and made stickers depicting various “lessons” along with excerpts from the volume.

其中一張貼紙顯示一個人雙膝跪地,底下標語寫著「不要自願馴服」。

One of the pictures includes a person kneeling on the ground with the sentence: “Do not obey in advance.”

Another seemingly aimed at local police depicts a person holding a gun captioned with “Be reflective if you must be armed.”

根據港版國安法,「分離、顛覆、恐怖主義和外國干涉」都被歸類為非法行為,若觸法最嚴重恐面臨無期徒刑。

The new security law sanctions acts deemed to be secessionist, subversive, or terrorist, as well as foreign intervention in the city’s internal affairs as illegal, with the maximum penalty being life imprisonment. 

上週香港一名攜帶「港獨」旗幟的抗議者騎乘重機衝撞港警,後被以「恐怖主義」、「分離」罪名遭到起訴,成為國安法正式生效後首例因違反此法而被起訴者。

As of press time, one protester has been charged with “terrorism” and “inciting secession” for driving a motorbike into police force last week while flying a “Liberate Hong Kong” banner, making it a first after the law came into effect.

轄區內的圖書館近期更宣布新政策,未來將「審查」親民主派人士撰寫的所有書籍,確認是否違反國安法。

Library authorities within the area have also announced a new policy to “review” books written by pro-democracy figures to determine whether they have violated the new law.
