Open Letter to the President of Colombia, the First Lady, the Great People of Colombia and South America 

致委内瑞拉总统、第一夫人、委内瑞拉和南美洲的大人民

 

 

The history of the liberation of modern day Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia from Spain and the slaves taken from Africa to South America by Spain did not come about in 8 seconds, 8 minutes and 8 hours or 888.

现代委内瑞拉、哥伦比亚、厄瓜多尔、秘鲁和玻利维亚,包括西班牙从非洲带到南美洲的奴隶,他们从西班牙解放出来的这段历史,不是在8小时8分钟8秒内或者888内发生的。

Simon Bolivar a native of Venezuela, also known as the Liberator, proclaimed his country independence around 1812, but was later defeated by the troops of Ferdinand VII of Spain and forced to flee to Haiti with his companion of arms at the end of 1815. 

西蒙·玻利瓦尔是委内瑞拉人,也被称为解放者,他于1812年宣布他的国家独立,但后来被西班牙斐迪南七世的军队击败,被迫于1815年底带他的军队逃离到海地。

Simon Bolivar ended up in the southern city of Les Cayes, Haiti, "my birth place" where he and his peers were well received by the Haitian General Marion and the population. 

西蒙·玻利瓦尔最终来到海地南部城市莱凯,即“我出生的地方”,他和他的同行们在那里受到海地将军马里昂及当地居民的热情接待。

Simon Bolivar met with the President of the First Free Black Republic in the Western Hemisphere, Alexandre Petion, who supported his noble causes for independence and nicknamed him "the author for independence in South America". 

西蒙·玻利瓦尔会见了位于西半球的第一个黑人自由共和国的总统亚历山大·佩蒂翁,这位总统支持他争取国家独立的崇高事业,并戏称他为“南美独立的创始者”。

In the city of Les Cayes, Haiti, Simon Bolivar received weapons, ammunitions and granted the permission to enroll Haitians who willingly stepped forward to sacrifice their own lives for the noble cause of independence & liberty from colonialism for the Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia as well as freedom of all the slaves taken from Africa to South America by Spain.

在海地城市莱凯,西蒙·玻利瓦尔收到了武器和弹药,并获得了许可,让那些自愿牺牲自己生命的海地人报名参与争取独立和自由的崇高事业,帮忙解放委内瑞拉、哥伦比亚、厄瓜多尔、秘鲁和玻利维亚,以及那些由西班牙从非洲带到南美洲的奴隶。

Simon Bolivar wanted to name President Alexandre Petion the "author of Liberty" but he refused. Instead, President Alexandre Petion only ask one thing of Simon Bolivar: "to abolish slavery in all the countries that he would have liberated" with the help of the "Haitian Freedom Fighters".

西蒙·玻利瓦尔想把总统亚历山大·佩蒂翁称做“自由的创始人”,但他拒绝了,而只是请求西蒙·玻利瓦尔一件事:在 “海地自由战士们”的帮助下,要在所有他解放了的国家中废除奴隶制”。

Simon Bolivar returned to Venezuela ready to put his pledge to President Alexandre Petion of Haiti into action and began by liberating his own slaves on his plantation of San-Mateo. However when he proclaimed general freedom for all slaves, the slave-owners and even his own lieutenants turned against him and was forced again to seek exile in Haiti a second time.

西蒙·玻利瓦尔返回委内瑞拉,准备将海地总统亚历山大·佩蒂翁的请求付诸行动,并开始解放他自己位于圣 - 马提澳种植地的奴隶。然而,当他宣布解放所有奴隶时,奴隶主甚至他自己的副手们都倒戈相向反对他的举措,迫不得已,他再次流亡到了海地。

It was in the Bay of Jacmel (Southeast city of Haiti) that the design of the flags of both Venezuela and Colombia were conceived and derived from the red and blue flag of Haiti which is also noticeable in the flag of Ecuador as well.

就在雅克梅勒湾(位于海地东南部的城市),委内瑞拉和哥伦比亚的国旗设计孕育出来了,它们由海地红色和蓝色的国旗演变而来,这在厄瓜多尔的国旗中也能看到。

Simon Bolivar and the "Haitian Freedom Fighters" returned to South America after many struggles and fierce battles, Bolivar and his army made of Haitian Freedom fighters defeated the second Europeans Colonial Empire in the Western Hemisphere, the Spanish Imperial army in Colombia and won that country independence in 1819. Simon Bolivar and the Haitian freedom fighters liberated his country Venezuela, this time for good in 1821 and Ecuador in 1822. 

经过许多困难和激烈的战斗后,西蒙·玻利瓦尔和“海地自由战士”终于重返到南美洲,玻利瓦尔和他那由海地自由战士组成的军队,在西半球打败了欧洲第二大殖民帝国,在哥伦比亚打败了西班牙皇家军队,在1819年为该国赢得了独立,西蒙·玻利瓦尔和海地自由战士,这次终于在1821年解放了自己的国家委内瑞拉,然后在 1822年解放了厄瓜多尔。

17 years prior, After Toussaint Louverture’s arrest in Haiti and deportation to France where he would die in 1803. Under Napoleon Bonaparte, the French attempted to re-enslave the island in 1802.  The Haitian resistance continued under the armies led by General Jacques Dessalines.  

17年前,图森 - 鲁威尔杜尔在海地被捕并被驱逐到法国,他在那里一直到1803年死去,在拿破仑统治下,法国企图于1802在海地这个岛国恢复奴隶制,但一直被海地将军雅克德萨林率领的军队所抵抗。

Thomas Jefferson, slave owner, and one of America’s revered ‘founding fathers’, initially supported the re-enslavement of Haiti. In a letter to Napoleon he said that “nothing will be easier than to furnish your army and fleet with everything and reduce Toussaint [L’Ouverture] to starvation.”

托马斯·杰斐逊是位奴隶主,也是美国受人尊敬的 “开国元勋”之一,他最初支持在海地恢复奴隶制。在写给拿破仑的一封信里面,他说:“没有什么会比补给你军队和舰队,并让图森[鲁威尔杜尔]饿死更容易。”

Thomas Jefferson changed his mind, however, when he realised that Napoleon’s desire to reincorporate Louisiana and Nouvelle Orléans (New Orleans) into the French Empire conflicted with American interests. Thomas Jefferson, therefore remained neutral, despite Haiti's Freedom fighters contribution along American colonials troops fighting the British in Savannah, Georgia in 1799. 

然而,当托马斯·杰斐逊意识到拿破仑要重新将路易斯安那州和新奥尔良纳入到法兰西帝国版图,并与美国的利益相冲突时,他改变了主意,托马斯·杰斐逊因此而保持中立,尽管海地的自由战士曾在1799年,与美国殖民地部队一起在乔治亚州萨瓦那抗击英军的战斗中做出贡献。

Haiti, much smaller in population than the United States, was attacked by armies as large as those sent against America by Britain. In spite of military assistance to the French from Britain and Spain, in the fight of liberty, the Haitian Freedom Fighters would achieve one of the most triumphant and inspiring victories in military history, with more than 50,000 foreign soldiers lying dead on the battlefields.

海地人口比美国要小得多,但是却遭受过与英国军队对美国发出的同等规模的攻击。尽管法国有英国和西班牙的军事援助,但在在自由之战中,海地的自由战士们却取得了军事史上最大和最鼓舞人心的胜利之一,他们让50,000多名外国军人横尸战场。

The French were forced to withdraw from Haiti in 1803.  The Haitian victory over the legions of Napoleon was achieved with much less foreign assistance than the United States enjoyed. A slave nation had defeated Napoleon Bonaparte greatest army ever sent forth or by the french imperial power.  

法国被迫于1803年从海地撤出,海地战胜了拿破仑军队,而且是在比美国享有更少外国援助的情况下实现的。一个奴隶国家打败了由拿破仑及法国皇权有史以来派出的最强大的军队。

Eventually, the Haitian victory over the French benefited Thomas Jefferson and America by forcing Napoleon Bonaparte to give up his plan of conquering the United States and sold the Louisiana territory for $15 million which resulted in the expansion of the United States beyond the Appalachian Mountians and double its size.  Haiti became the first Free Black Republic of the Western Hemisphere, the first nation to abolish slavery and helped the United States expand its territory.

最终,海地的胜利也让托马斯·杰斐逊和美国受益,它迫使拿破仑放弃征服美国的计划,并以$1500万的价格出售路易斯安那领土,从而使美国的国土越过了阿巴拉契亚山脉,扩大了一倍。海地成为西半球第一个废除奴隶制的黑人自由共和国,并帮助美国扩大了其领土。

 

 

On April 30, 1803, U.S. representatives in Paris agreed to pay $15 million for about 828,000 square miles of land that stretched from the Mississippi River to the Rocky Mountains and from the Gulf of Mexico to Canada. This deal, known as the Louisiana Purchase, nearly doubled the size of the United States as a result of Haiti's Freedom Fighters victory over the French Imperial army.

1803年4月30日,在巴黎的美国代表同意支付$1500万以换取约828,000平方英里的土地,这块土地从密西西比河延伸到落基山脉,从墨西哥湾一直到加拿大,这笔交易被称为路易斯安那购买案,它几乎让美国国土面积翻了一倍,这是海地自由战士打败法兰西帝国军队导致的结果。

Simon Bolivar and the Haitian freedom fighters helped the unification of Venezuela, Colombia and Ecuador into the Gran Colombia. Simon Bolivar and the Haitian freedom fighters also helped liberate Peru and Bolivia (Upper Peru)".

西蒙·玻利瓦尔和海地自由战士们,帮助委内瑞拉、哥伦比亚和厄瓜多尔统一到了大哥伦比亚。西蒙·玻利瓦尔和海地自由战士们也帮助秘鲁和玻利维亚(上秘鲁)获得解放。

Today, as a Haitian-born, I am honored to follow the footsteps and stand on the shoulders of my ancestors, the Haitian Freedom fighters, to launch the first-ever American 888 Lucky IPA and 888 Pilsner Craft Beers Tours of Venezuela, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia.

今天,海地出生的我很荣幸能跟随先人的脚步,站在祖先及海地自由战士的肩膀上,在委内瑞拉、哥伦比亚、厄瓜多尔、秘鲁和玻利维亚推出第一个美国888幸运IPA和888比尔森精酿啤酒之旅。

In retrospect, as a child growing up in Haiti, I was always intrigued and fascinated by the Chinese culture and especially Kung Fu movies. 

现在回想起来,作为一个在海地长大的孩子,我总是对中国文化很好奇和着迷,特别是功夫电影。

Hence, in February of 2015, I visited the beautiful country of China and spent a month in Chongqing. It was a dream that materialized just like a movie. The Chinese people were very friendly, hospitable, left a profound joy and admiration in my heart. 

因此,在2015年2月,我访问了中国这个美丽的国家,并在重庆呆了一个月。这是就像是一部电影变成了现实,中国人民非常友好、好客,在我的内心留下深深的喜悦和钦佩。

After experiencing the social lifestyle and the tradition of cheers, "ganbei" or 干杯 in China, upon my return in the United States of America (USA), I was inspired to start a craft beer company from a recipe I developed as a homebrewer.

在经历了社交生活方式和喝酒的传统,或中文所说的“干杯”后,我回到了美利坚合众国(USA),并突发灵感要成立一家精酿啤酒公司,用我自己作为家庭酿酒师开发的配方。

The style of beer that I developed is the American version of the British India Pale Ale or IPA. The IPA style is known for its strong hop character, dates to the 1800s and is the fastest-growing and best-selling style of craft beer in USA. 

我所开发的啤酒是英属印度淡啤酒或IPA的美国版本,IPA以其啤酒花著称,其历史可以追溯到19世纪初,它是在美国精酿啤酒中增长最快、最畅销的一种。

In memory of the warm welcome that I received from China and following the footsteps of my ancestors, the "Haitian Freedom Fighters", I would like to offer the following toasts:

为纪念我在中国所受到的热情款待,并追随我的祖先 “海地自由战士”的脚步,我想提出以下祝酒词:


I. First Toast or 干杯
Mr. President, First Lady and the Great People of Venezuela, please allow me to offer you an imaginary first toast or 干杯 of our 888 Lucky IPA and 888 Pilsner Craft Beers by raising my glass up but much lower than all of yours to show respect and wish you Luck, Wealth and Prosperity. 

I. 第一杯

总统先生、第一夫人和委内瑞拉的伟大人民,请允许我举杯,当然是远低于你们所有人的杯子,让我假想有幸跟你们一起,用我们的888 Lucky IPA和888比尔森精酿啤酒敬你们一杯,祝你们好运、富有和繁荣。


II. Second Toast or 干杯
It will be a great honor to personally offer you a second toast or 干杯 during my first visit to Venezuela to introduce the first-ever American 888 Lucky IPA and 888 Pilsner Craft Beers.

II.第二杯

我第一次访问委内瑞拉,介绍美国有史以来第一个888 Lucky IPA和888比尔森精酿啤酒,这是莫大的荣幸,本人再次敬你们一杯。


III. Third Toast or 干杯

I am offering a third toast to the Great People of Venezuela because I am certain that you will like, the 888 Lucky IPA named Best Tasting Beer in Brooklyn, New York, USA and the 888 Pilsner whose recipe won Gold at Maryland, USA craft beer competition, which are Made in Washington DC USA.

III.第三杯

我第三杯要敬委内瑞拉的伟大人民,因为我相信你会喜欢,被评为美国纽约布鲁克林地区的最佳品味啤酒的888幸运IPA,以及美国华盛顿特区制造且其配方荣获美国精酿啤酒赛马里兰金奖的888比尔森啤酒

 

 

IV. Fourth Toast or 干杯 

According to a Chinese proverb: "Hearing a hundred times is not as good as seeing once."

中国有句谚语:“百闻不如一见”

IV.第四杯

 

I am very excited to visit the Venezuela, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia and see with my own eyes the countries that my ancestors, the Haitian Freedom Fighters, liberated from colonialism and securing the freedom of the African slaves taken from Africa will be far better than ten thousand words can ever express. 

我很高兴能够访问委内瑞拉、哥伦比亚、厄瓜多尔、秘鲁和玻利维亚,用我自己的眼睛看到我的祖先,那些海地自由战士从殖民者中解放的国家,并保卫那些从非洲被带来的奴隶的自由,这远远胜过千言万语所能表达的。

 

Therefore, please allow me to offer you one last Toast or 干杯, I wish you once more, many years of Luck, Wealth and Prosperity or 888. Learn more at http://www.paugustin.com

因此,请允许我向您敬最后一杯,再次祝福你多年好运、富有和繁荣或888,欲了解更多请访问
