Johan Sandberg McGuinne – “Òran Nan Gállok”

Musikerna tyckes jobba för högtryck just nu. Prostest sång/jojk efter mot gruvplanerna i Kallak, Jokkmokk, skapas och spelas in. Här är Johan Sandbergs MacGuinnes verk. Sandberg MacGuinnes sjunger på skotsk gaeliska.

Här kan du läsa hans syn på konflikten i Jokkmokks skogar: VIELEDIT ÁLGGOÁLMMUGA RIEKTÁV: INDIGENOUS RESISTANCE AGAINST MINING IN SÁBME AND CULTURE AS A DECOLONIAL TOOL

Seall na gaisgean anns an Gállok,
tìr ar sinnsearan, tìr nan treun
‘s air a’ mhèinn a bhith ar mallachd

hi hoireann o ho ro,
e ho ro anna

‘s air a mhèinn a bhith ar mallachd,
sgriosadh sinn Beowulf, buail sinn beum
thèid a dhìobhail, seo ar gealladh

hi hoireann o ho ro,
e ho ro anna

thèid a dhìobhail, seo ar gealladh
cha strìochdainn sinn dhuibh, sìos leibh
Gállok far am bidh sinn maireann

hi hoireann o ho ro,
e ho ro anna

Gállok far am bidh sinn maireann
fhìr, na goidibh tu ar dualchas
dùthaich an fhèidh mòr an t-sneachda

hi hoireann o ho ro,
e ho ro anna

dùthaich an fhèidh mòr an t-sneachda
far an cluinnear sinn ar cànan
gun fuaim an tochladh, neo a’ mhèinn

hi hoireann o ho ro,
e ho ro anna

gun fuaim an tochladh, neo a’ mhèinn;
bidh ar tìr a mairibh gu brath
nuair gheibh thu bàirlinn siud fhàgail

hi hoireann o ho ro,
e ho ro anna

Behold the brave people in Gállok
land of our ancestors, land of heroes
our curse has been cast on the mine

Our curse has been cast on the mine
we will destroy Beowulf, we will strike swiftly
Their ruin will come, that’s our promise

Their ruin will come, that’s our promise
we will not yield to you, down with your lot
This is Gállok where we will remain forever

This is Gállok where we will remain forever
Men, do not try to steal our ancestral homelands,
the land of reindeer

The land of reindeer
where you’ll hear our language
without the noise of digging, or the mine

Without the noise of digging, or the mine
our land will remain forever
when you [Beowulf] receive our message to get the fuck off
