dizzidenza (echoes from Tinanman)
Thinking not just of being patriotic.
Wanting not just of democracy.
Making not just a movement.
Love, hate and sadness, echoes on.
Wanting to trek the path again.
Lovers and comrades.
To the square we go.
Death or live, together we always will.
Since ’97 (the return of Hong Kong to the Mainland), dizzidenza has been an annual music gathering echoing the independent dissents raised during June 4th, 1989. 16 years have gone by, people’s voices are still being organised, voices of dissent are still being neglected. We believe that people’s independent voice of dissent must be acknowledged and facilitated. Therefore, we refrain from organizing and arranging for the since last year, and send out here an open call for participation. Hoping those who get the message shall bring along their own equipments of amplification; performance or display to gather at the area in front of the “The Soaring Frenchman” sculpture in front of the Tsimshatsui Cultural Centre at 8:09 p.m. on June 3rd to realize an cultural square of the voices of the independent dissents and the freedom to action.
In a square of openness, any voice must certainly be honoured. If any discord should happens, accord could only be made with mutual care of the involved participants to achieve a just co-ordination and arrangement.
Furthermore, we think that a people’s square is of the people and for the people, any uninvited interruption by any governing party are un-necessary and is actually a repressive act to suppress the people’s freedom of expression and action. Therefore, this gathering of cultural square will not submit any application or notification to any governing bodies. Thus, the participants might have to face and react to interruption by the governing parties. Since we called this gathering a square of the people, the mutual care and support between people to face up to and resolve any pressing problem will be of utmost importance.
