家務移工組研讀活動第二回—— 搞乜樹?後續眾讀

20160815_promotion_reading gp

 

家務移工組第一回的讀書會“One of the Family”已於5月順利完成,參加者帶來的想法和經驗,使每次讀書會的討論都非常豐富而有趣味。7月我們舉辦了「什麼樹?書介派對」,邀請來派對的朋友推介有魅力的讀物;書本、影片,相片故事和雜誌,全部都十分吸引,所以我們會在之後的研讀活動逐一細讀!更讓人興奮的是,推介研讀文本的朋友和第一回的參加者會參與這次的籌備工作!

尤記得第一回我們曾在宣傳文字上寫道,「通過『研讀小組』,我們期望邀請婦進的會員、公眾進行每個月一次的定期聚會,一起閱讀相關的文本(包括書籍、電影、散文等)來討論和思考家務移工的不同景況。」這個想法我們延續到第二回的研讀活動,意猶未盡,一同眾讀。

「本來以為是我支援她們的抗爭,但想不到最後是我被她們啟發了」Alex說。

他是外藉家務工運動的本地支持者,最近兩三年的時間,一直用不同方式支援著移工的在港抗爭。從Alex的視點看來,這些移工姊妹不只有香港家庭的家務工這個身份, 同時也可以是運動組織者、政策提倡者、研究員、舞台藝員、歌手等,只是這些身份,被她們的工作限制着發展。星期日的假期,對這些移工姊妹而言非常重要——上述的面貌和身份得以釋放出來,讓這個世界看到。Alex的一部份星期日,就是參加移工姊妹的行動,觀察著這些面貌。8月份的讀書會,他將會帶同一批照片和背後的故事,與大家分享自己的參與經驗。

AAF domestic worker subcommittee, study group second round
what’s next? everybody let’s read

The first round of Study Group of Migrant Domestic Worker (MDW) Subcommittee, themed as ‘One of the Family’, had been ended in May. We would like to express our gratefulness to have participants sharing their insights and experience. Without them, it would be impossible to have such fruitful discussions. This July, in order to prepare for the upcoming round, we held the ‘Books and More Party’ to invite past participants and new friends to bring their favorite texts. Surprisingly, all of them were appealing and have been included in the upcoming ‘reading list’. What’s more, participants will be invited to be organizers this time—they will plan and host the sessions in which their favorite text appears.

The upcoming round will begin this month and we are more than delighted to have Alex, a local supporter for migrant domestic workers’ social movement, to lead the first session. Interestingly, the text he will bring is not book nor film, but ‘photos’, a form of text had never appeared in the study group before.

‘I’ve never thought that MDWs are my enlightenment!’ said Alex.

From Alex’s point of view, MDWs are not just bearing the identity of ‘worker’, but also ‘movement organizer’, ‘policy advocate’, ‘researcher’, ‘performer’ …… The sad truth is, their job, confining at domestic sphere, hinders workers from developing multiple identities, except Sunday (the only holiday in a week). Therefore, Alex spent most of his Sundays in participating in the leisure activities and movements initiated by workers, to record their multiple faces and talents through means of photos. In the next Study Group of August, he will bring his photos to share the back stories and also his experience along the social movements.
