公开声明:60年前的5月13日学生运动

PRESS RELEASE: May 13 Student Movement … 60 Years On

在2014年5月13日星期二,将有超过700名人士出席一个纪念1954年5月13日事件60周年特别午餐聚会。出席本纪念午宴的人士将包括新加坡和来自海外不同国家当年为争取新加坡独立的前辈战士。他们当中一部分人是在上个世纪50年代和60年代在政府引用‘紧急法令’和后来的‘内部安全法令’下被当局任意的驱逐离开新加坡的。他们当中许多人的年龄现在已经是70岁到80岁了。

More than 700 people will commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the May 13, 1954 Incident with a special lunch on Tuesday, 13 May 2014. They are some of our pioneer generation of independence fighters and come from Singapore and many countries abroad. Several of them left Singapore during the 1950s and 60s when the government had used the Emergency Regulations and later the Internal Security Act indiscriminately. Most are now in their 70s and 80s.

本次的纪念午宴聚会是由人权组织Function 8 和非政府组织 MARUAH共同主办的。这个纪念‘513’事件60 周年纪念聚餐适逢卫塞节。对于那些为新加坡做出极其重大贡献的前辈来说这是一个吉祥的日子。但是,我们大多数人而言已经忘记了这个日子。他们是真正的前辈。

Jointly organised by Function 8 and MARUAH, this 60th anniversary lunch which falls auspiciously on Vesak Day is to honour the people who have made significant contributions to Singapore but who have largely been forgotten today. Truly they are our pioneers.

在1954年5月13日,8名华校中学生代表新加坡的华校中学计划到当时的总督府(即现在的总统府)寻求18岁到20岁的男性学生获得豁免兵役。8名学生代表获得了在克里门索道通往总督府的人行道上排队的近一千名学生的支持。这场和平集会最终被镇暴警察以绳索、警棍和来福枪等暴力工具破坏。许多学生在这场行动中受伤。后来当局以阻碍警方人员执行任务和警方发出解散令后拒绝离开被逮捕并控上法院。

On May 13, 1954, eight student representatives from the Chinese Middle Schools were scheduled to present a petition to the Governor of Singapore at the Istana, seeking exemption from national service for male students between the ages of 18 and 20. They were supported by nearly a thousand students who lined the pavement from Clemenceau Avenue to the Istana. That peaceful assembly was violently disrupted by riot police who were armed with batons, shields and rifles. Many students were injured and 48 were subsequently arrested and charged for obstructing the police and refusing to disperse when ordered to do so.

在事件发生后,更多的学生以抗议和静坐的方式迫使当时的新加坡中华总商会出面调解学生与当时的殖民地政府之间的纠纷。学生们经过22天的集中,殖民地政府最终同意国民服役延期实施。
More student protests and sit-ins following the incident forced the Chinese Chamber of Commerce to mediate between the students and the colonial government. After a record 22 days’ camp-in, the colonial government finally allowed deferment of national service.

学生们的行动鼓舞了当时新加坡人民团结起来争取公民权利和政治权利。在1954年5月13日事件后的2个星期,当时负责出版马来亚大学学生会刊物《华惹FAJAR》的马来亚大学的学生成为了殖民地政府的目标。殖民地政府以《华惹FAJAR》编辑部发表了一篇题为:《在亚洲的侵略“Aggression in Asia”》的文章控告学生煽动罪。

It was the action of the students that inspired the people to unite and demand civil and political rights for Singaporeans. Two weeks after the May 13, 1954 Incident, the students at the University of Malaya, who published a newsletter called Fajar, were targeted by the colonial police. The editorial board of the publication was charged for sedition over an editorial entitled “Aggression in Asia”.

杰出的英国女皇律师D N Pritt 先生到新加坡为学生们辩护。当时李光耀是D N Pritt先生的助手。学生们获得无罪释放的辩护的胜利提高了李光耀个人的声望。随后,李光耀成立的人民行动党获得了学生和工人的支持。一系列的争取人民的基本权利和政治权利的工业行动、抗议和诉求行动迫使英国殖民主义者予以新加坡独立。

Eminent Queen’s Counsel, D N Pritt came to Singapore to defend the students. He was assisted by Lee Kuan Yew. The acquittal of the students without their defence being called raised the profile of Lee who shortly after, formed the People’s Action Party with the support of the students and workers.
The series of industrial actions, protests and demands for civil and political rights finally compelled the British to grant independence to Singapore.

为了表示对前辈们为咱们争取人权所做出的巨大贡献的肯定,人权组织Function and非政府组织 MARUAH为此举办了这个纪念‘513’事件60周年聚餐午宴,

Recognising the enormous contributions of the pioneers who stood up for our human rights, Function
and MARUAH commemorate the 60th anniversary of the May 13 Incident with a lunch in their honour.
