致墨爾本朋友,
My Dear Friends from Melbourne:


大家好,我是巴丟草。感謝大家在上週六7月20日來Hosier Lane 參加撐港連儂牆的街頭藝術活動。感謝諸位再一次讓我體會了香港市民和墨爾本市民的愛和行動力。週六的活動,我們得到了許許多多來自於墨爾本香港社群的志願者幫助,他們的無私奉獻讓這一場藝術活動變得眾人矚目,五彩繽紛。

Hi,This is artist Badiucao.Thanks for everyone who comes to the Lennon Wall for Free Hong Kong in Melbourne. It is extraordinary to see your love and action in supporting HK. Really appreciate all volunteers' great effort to make this art campaign successful and rainbow like colorful.


爭取自由和民主的路途總是充滿著挑戰和威脅,哪怕是在自由的澳大利亞。這一次活動我們經歷有人蓄意在臉書和澳洲粵語媒體散布恐懼,以阻止眾人參與;週六早晨遭到疑似惡意舉報;活動開始後更有可疑人士試圖監控和拍攝志願者的樣貌。但是,沒有人因為一點點恐嚇而退縮,在大家的幫助和參與下,墨爾本的撐港連儂牆獲得了巨大關注和支持。感謝大家風雨同舟!

There are always challenges,even threats on the way to fight for freedom and democracy,regardless where we are. We have experience many difficulties including people spreading fear on Facebook and Media in order to scare others away from attending this campaign. In the morning of last Saturday,my art in Hoseir Lane was troubled and reported possibly by people with pro China agenda. Even,after the campaign started,we spot suspicious people tried to take photos of our volunteers' faces on the site. However,none of the these intimidation worked, we made our lennon wall as loud and beautiful as possible. Thank you so much!


昨晚,我獲得志願者告知,連儂牆可能遭到塗鴉和拆除。就目前所瞭解的情況之後,我相信這並非有人蓄意為之。Hosier Lane 是墨爾本街頭藝術皇冠上的珍珠,每天都吸引世界各地街頭藝術家在此自由的創作,而我們的連儂牆也得因於這種自由的環境。有新的作品被創造,就會有舊的作品被覆蓋。所以請大家理解,並不要為此氣餒。

Last night,i got told by volunteers that the wall was covered and damaged. After i learned the details of it, I believe it was not intentionally retaliation. Hosier Lane is the pearl on the Melbourne street art crown where many artists around the world showcase works everyday. It is a free space for all and with every new creation,an old work will be covered. And our Lennon Wall also benefits from this unique freedom from the Lane. So I hope people not feel too frustrated if our wall is covered and respect other artists' work in the future.


連儂牆的意義,不僅僅在於一面牆的保留,更在於大家的行動帶給墨爾本和世界的支持香港自由的訊息。而這個訊息會保留和回響在許多不同的空間,如各位的社交網絡和我們接受的媒體採訪。我和志願者也通過了數字記錄的方式,保存了每一張寫下的彩色便簽。對於墨爾本連儂牆的數字存檔,我正和一些熟悉IT的朋友策劃,希望不日能夠建立起一個數字檔案館,讓諸位的留言得到網絡空間永久的展示。

I believe that the meaning of Lennon Wall does not only reside in a physical form. The very beauty and power are also coming from the action of creating it. And these marvelous actions by many are sending a strong message to Melbourne and the world with our determination to protect the freedom of Hong Kong. The memory of our actions are also recorded on Internet,traditional and social media. Moreover, I and volunteers from Australia-Hong Kong Link have made digital record for every single post we have on the Wall. And my next project is to collaborate with my IT friends to create a digital version of our Lennon Wall for a permanent display of it in the future.


另外,我在此向大家承諾:在我下一個墨爾本的美術個展,我一定會保留美術館的一面牆作為新的撐港連儂牆,把它留給大家貼出更多的對自由香港的期許,而這面牆,會保留到相對久的一段時間,直到展覽結束。

I also want to make a promise to you all:for my next Solo art exhibition in Melbourne, I will have an entire wall from the gallery for you to create a new Lennon Wall which will be well protected and preserved until the end of the exhibition.
