       行动带来改变 A call for action

                                         LisaV - June 18, 2010  GreenChina/译
    萨拜因,助理厨师,极地曙光号上的活动者,目前位于地中海——为了蓝鳍金枪鱼之战
From Sabine, the Assistant Cook and one of the activists on board the Arctic Sunrise in the Med right now - for our bluefin tuna campaign.

    我已经在海上呆了几乎5个星期了。在海上出行让一切都思维换了个角度。似乎所有的事物都被夸大了——包括人类社会和野生的,原始的自然。因为,这里不仅存在着不同点——船上人们的非常特别的友爱之情,我们所有人都被限制在一个狭小的空间里长达6个星期——并且当你遥望大海,看不到一丝陆地的影子,看不到任何东西,只有一片蓝色——海水,波浪,天空——在这种环境中,我们人类的存在实在是太渺小了。

I have been at sea for almost five weeks now. To be out on the sea puts everything into a different perspective. Everything is magnified – both our human community and wild, pristine nature. For, not only is there a different, very special camaraderie among people on board, all of us being confined to a small space together for six weeks, but when you look at the sea and see no land and nothing but blue – the water, waves and the sky - our human presence in this setting feels quite miniscule.

    有鉴于此,这是一段旅程,一段尝试去理解人类——这样一个只占少数的物种——是怎样造成了如此大的损害的艰难之旅。我们怎么能够猎捕金枪鱼直到它们即将灭绝? 与此同时,更令人难以置信的是,我们竟然是这里唯一试图直接阻止蓝鳍金枪鱼的猎杀行为的人。我们只不过是忙茫茫地中海中极其渺茫的一点罢了。

In view of this it is a trip to try to understand how human beings – such a minority species – can inflict such damage. How we are capable of hunting bluefin tuna to extinction.

At the same time it is even more baffling to realise that we are practically the only people out here trying to directly stop the bluefin tuna fishing. And we are but a tiny spot within the Mediterranean Sea.

 

     现在,我们在家里,从报纸上读到有关环境和社会不公的问题,并且参与线上活动来尝试做出一个改变,一个重要的改变。同时,在行动中,总有一些令人惊奇的事情——在这个领域,可以说并没有很多人涉足。仅仅注视着大海,看不到任何东西,除了蓝色的海水和波浪,偶尔也许会有几艘渔船出现在远方。这又一次表明我们是多么渺小。这再次增强了我对行动的重要性和必要性,以及保护地球的直接行动的信念。我觉得,人们经常会忘记这一点,直接行动确实起到了作用,毕竟只有少数人才能创造更大规模的环境和社会的变革。所以,我的海上经历和由此激发的对人类和自然的新观念,让我明白了这些行动的必要、力量和效果——因为如果没有人站出来干些什么事情来阻止迫在眉睫的蓝鳍金枪鱼的灭绝(不必说,这也适用于地球上所有其他物种),身边的很多东西就会变得很抽象,而且餐馆里你的盘子中的金枪鱼就会从我们生活中永远消失。蓝鳍金枪鱼被捕杀的场景提醒我们,行动主义确实能够带来改变,一只船上很少的人就能起到巨大的作用——仅仅以一种见证者的身份,或者直接对抗捕杀。我热爱这种工作。

Now, we all read up on environmental and social injustice issues from our homes, in the newspapers, and take part in online actions to try to create a change – an important one. At the same time there is something amazing about actually being right in the middle of the action–– it is quite amazing to see that there are not many people out there in the field, so to speak.

Just looking at the sea and seeing nothing but blue and the water and the waves, and maybe an occasional fishing vessel in the distance, again shows me how small we are. This again reinforces my belief in the importance and necessity of activism, of direct action to protect the planet. I think it tends to get forgotten that direct action actually does make a difference that a few people can set off larger scale environmental and social change. So, if anything, my experience on sea and the different perspective of humans and nature that is triggered by it, reminds me of the necessity, power and effectiveness of this kind of action – for if no-one goes out and does something against the impending bluefin tuna extinction (and, needless to say, this applies just as well to all other forms of life on the planet) the whole issue at hand will just remain as abstract and removed from our “lives” as the tuna that is served on your plate in a restaurant.

Being right at the scene of the bluefin tuna fishing is a great reminder that activism, indeed, can create a change, that a few people on a boat can makes such a difference – be it simply in forms of bearing witness, or actually directly confronting the fishing. I love it.
