Law, Politics, Taiwan

Human Rights Park

This is a very complex picture (by Cooloud). Taiwan’s President and Vice-President were prisoners in this building during the White Terror. On Human Rights Day they announced its conversion into a Human Rights Memorial. However, at the same time, not far from the ceremony, the police were forcefully breaking up a [peaceful] demonstration held by citizens protesting on the LeSheng Leprosy Institute issue.”
