《守護大觀》是版畫小組在2018年為聲援大觀社區居民反迫遷運動而創作的版畫作品。大觀社區位於台灣新北市板橋區。二戰後，隨國民黨政府來台的大批軍民與家屬在此落地生根，由於當時政權無法承擔大量人民的居住需求，人民只得搭建簡陋棚戶，形成所謂「非列管眷村」。類似大觀社區這樣的「非正規住居」（informal settlement）其實不在少數，這是在發展主義及城市化下，人口大量湧入都市卻無法承擔高額樓價的結果。大觀社區的居民，除了軍眷，還有城鄉移民、大陸配偶，以及長者，可以用「社會底層」四字概括。當局卻指控居民為「違佔戶」，甚至以訴訟方式排除居民，沒有誠意負起安置責任。2016年，居民開始組織抗爭，要求原地安置。2019年三月，當局下達全數拆除的強拆令；八月，社區原址已是一片殘垣瓦礫。 想了解更多有關大觀事件的資訊，請瀏覽：facebook.com/DaguanHomeless/ “Guarding Daguan” is a print created by Woodblock Printing Collective in support of the Daguan Anti-Eviction Movement. Daguan is located in New Taipei City’s Banqiao district. After World War II, soldiers and families of the nationalist Kuomintang (KMT) took shelter in Daguan. At the time, the government was unable to meet people’s housing needs, so many had to build what they thought to be temporary homes, hence forming numerous military dependents’ villages. Informal settlements like Daguan is not uncommon in Taiwan, as urbanisation has driven property prices out of reach. Daguan residents included not only military veterans and their dependents, but also those at the bottom of the society, such as rural immigrants, mainland Chinese spouses of Taiwan citizens and the elderly. The government declared Daguan an illegal occupation and sued its residents for ownership of their homes. In March 2019, the government ordered the demolition of Daguan. In August, the original site of Daguan was nothing but ruins. To learn more about the Daguan Anti-Eviction Movement, please visit: facebook.com/DaguanHomeless/
