elis 並非只是死了,她是被殺的。

[轉載自: 草根‧行動‧媒體]

編按: Elis的死不是意外。她被迫居住在中介公司環境惡劣的宿舍裡,威脅其生命,被大廈落下的石屎擊斃。現中介公司的說法是企圖把其置移民工安全於不顧的過錯推至大廈管理方,以逃避責任。縱觀主流媒體亦有意無意略去事件裡中介公司、僱主和雙方政府的責任。以下文章正能清楚說明他們對Elis死亡應付的責任。

Elis didn’t just die. She was killed.

elis 並非只是死了,她是被殺的。

Elis was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Not because she agreed to be there but because she was forced to stay there.

elis出現在錯誤的時空裡。這並非因為她願意,而是因為她被迫留在那個地方。

To begin with, it was the anti-poor government of Indonesia and its labour export programme that brought Elis in that place at that time.

溯源追始,就是那個反窮人的印尼政府,及其輸出勞工計劃,把elis置放於那個時空裡。

It was the policy of the Indonesian government forcing migrants to go through an agency that put Elis in that place at that time.

是印尼政府的政策,迫逼移民工必須通過中介公司找工作,而中介公司就把她置放於那個時空裡。

It was the arrangement agreed by the employer and the agency that place Elis in that unsafe, unhealthy, unhygienic and unfortunate place at that time.
是僱主及中介公司共同協議的安排,把elis置放於那個不安全、不健康、不衛生和不幸的時空裡。

It was the failure of the Hong Kong government to strictly regulate the operation and illegal activities of the agencies that put Elis in that place at that time.

是香港政府失職,未能嚴格管制中介公司的非法運作,才會把elis置放於那個時空裡。

It was the slave-like treatment of migrant domestic workers in Hong Kong where the government doesn’t seem to see anything wrong with migrant workers being kept in holding areas run by agencies and with the consent of the employers – that place Elis in that room at that specific time.

是香港政府視外藉家務工如奴隸一般,所以對於中介公司和僱主協議把她們圈禁於中介公司的物業裡,政府完全看不到有問題。而這個物業,就是elis當時身處的空間。

Yes, the building management must be made accountable for the poor condition of the building structure that caused that piece of concrete to fall and crushed Elis’ body.

是的,那幢大廈糟糕的大廈結構安全管理,的確須為飛墮壓毀elis身體的石屎負責。

But we should not forget that there are others who are equally accountable for forcing Elis to leave her family and country, making money out of her misery and poverty, treating her like a slave and putting her in that wrong place at that wrong time.

可是,我們不能忘記,有人正在利用elis貧困和不幸的生活,牟取利潤。對於elis因貧困和不幸的生活,而被迫離鄉別井,有人須同等地負責;對於把elis視如奴隸及把她置放於那個錯誤的時空裡,有人也須同等地負責。

Justice for Elis!
Justice for all migrants!
End Labour Export!
End Slavery!
為elis爭取公義!
為所有移民工爭取公義

停止輸出外勞!
停止奴役!
