七、八十年代的英國煤礦工會就像傳說一樣。團結、敢於對抗,罷工就代表停電與社會停頓,政府想硬推甚麼也不成。這令戴卓爾決心摧毀這群「人民公敵」,礦工則連結不同的工會與各社會群體殊死對抗。歷時一年,結果戴卓爾勝利了,左翼與工會運動從此旁落。

《仍是人民公敵》用回顧的方式記述這段英國近代工人運動最慘烈悲壯的歷史。三十年後,工人與其支持群體還是感到悲慟、憤怒,但他們從沒忘記。

礦工當年面對了無可比擬的慘敗,今年大選英國工黨左翼卻正重新崛起。這部影片,或是我們在無力感極重的社會氣氛下,思考如何面對失敗,找尋力量的起點。

the british workers’ unions of miners in the 70s and 80s were like a legend. with solidarity and courage to resist, the strike had led to power cut and a halt in social production, which hindered the government from implementing anything arbitrarily. this made margaret thatcher decide to defeat “the enemy within”, while the miners united different workers’ unions and social communities to fight to the death. one year on, thatcher won. leftists and labour movements declined.

looking back on the past, still the enemy within recorded the most tragic and miserable history of the modern labour movement in uk. 30 years later, workers and their supporters still showed their grief and anger, but they never forget.

the miners experienced unprecedented failure at that time. however, in the general election this year, leftists of uk labour party were rising again. this film may be a starting point for us to reflect on how to encounter failure, and to search for power notwithstanding the atmosphere of powerlessness shrouding our society.
