  • I'd like to dedicate this one to all the women in South Africa --

    譯者: Jeff Chang 審譯者: Adrienne Lin

  • those women who refused to dwindle in the midst of apartheid.

    我想把這首歌獻給南非所有的婦女--

  • And, of course, I'm dedicating it also to my grandmother,

    特別是那些拒絕在種族隔離中式微的女性。

  • whom I think really played quite a lot of important roles,

    當然,這首歌也要特別獻給我的奶奶,

  • especially for me when I was an activist, and being harassed by the police.

    她在我的一生中扮演了相當重要的角色,

  • You will recall that in 1976, June 16, the students of South Africa boycotted

    尤其是在我身為激進份子而備受警察騷擾的那段期間。

  • the language of Afrikaans as the medium of the oppressor,

    你們大概都還記得在1976年6月16號,南非的學生聯合抵制

  • as they were sort of like really told

    鎮壓者強迫把南非荷蘭語作為溝通的媒介。

  • that they must do everything in Afrikaans --

    學生們被迫

  • biology, mathematics -- and what about our languages?

    一定要用南非荷蘭語來學習任何課程--

  • And the students wanted to speak to the government,

    如生物,數學-- 那我們自身的語言該如何生存呢?

  • and police answered with bullets.

    因此學生們想和政府對談,

  • So every year, June 16, we will commemorate

    但警方確以子彈回應。

  • all those comrades or students who died.

    因此,每年的6月16號,我們都會紀念

  • And I was very young then. I think I was 11 years,

    那些在反抗中犧牲的學生。

  • and I started asking questions,

    回想起當時,我還很小,大概才11歲,

  • and that's when my political education started.

    正是對任何事物感到好奇的時候,

  • And I joined, later on, the youth organization

    而我的政治教育也正此開始。

  • under the African National Congress.

    後來,我加入了

  • So as part of organizing this and whatever,

    非洲國民大會的青年組織。

  • this commemoration, the police will round us up

    身為組織紀念活動的一員,

  • as they call us leaders.

    警察常會來圍捕騷擾我們,

  • And I used to run away from home,

    他們把我們叫作"領導者",

  • when I know that maybe the police might be coming

    在當時我還甚至常常逃家

  • around the ninth or 10th of June or so.

    為了就是躲避警方的逮捕。

  • And my grandmother one time said,

    他們常在6月的9號或10號來。

  • "No, look, you're not going to run away.

    有次,我的奶奶還說:

  • This is your place, you stay here."

    「聽好,這次你不准走

  • And indeed, the police came -- because they'll just arrest us

    這裡就是你的家,就好好待在這裡。」

  • and put us in jail and release us whenever they feel like, after the 20th or so.

    那晚,警察果真又來了。因為他們總是任意地逮捕我們,

  • So it was on the 10th of June, and they came, and they surrounded the house,

    關進牢裡,然後大約又在6月20號以後釋放我們。

  • and my grandmother switched off all the lights in the house,

    那晚是6月10號,警察來了,把我家包圍起來,

  • and opened the kitchen door.

    奶奶把房裡所有的燈關掉,

  • And she said to them, "Vusi's here, and you're not going to take him tonight.

    再打開廚房的門。

  • I'm tired of you having to come here, harassing us,

    她對他們說:「伍斯今晚在家,不過你們別想把他帶走,

  • while your children are sleeping peacefully in your homes.

    我真的受夠了你們跑來這裡來騷擾我們,

  • He is here, and you're not going to take him.

    而你們的孩子確能在家裡睡得這麼安穩。

  • I've got a bowl full of boiling water -- the first one who comes in here, gets it."

    他今晚就在這,但你們別想逮捕他。

  • And they left.

    我已經準備好滿滿一盆滾燙的開水,誰先進來,我就潑向誰。」

  • (Applause) (Music)

    那晚他們就只好灰頭土臉的走了。
