China is still persecuting Tibet, the world eyes are closed

FREEDOM: Tibetans living in Taiwan gathered at 228 Memorial Peace Park before marching through Taipei in protest against years of Chinese repression

Hundreds of Tibetans yesterday held a march in Taipei to commemorate an uprising by Tibetans against China 47 years ago.
The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) voiced support for the demonstration, urging China to give up imperialism and the persecution of Tibet and Taiwan through military force.

Tibetans living in Taiwan gathered at 228 Memorial Peace Park in the morning and set out on a march after singing Tibet's national anthem and reading a declaration from the Dalai Lama.

Shouting out "we want freedom and human rights" and "release political prisoners," the marchers and their supporters also chanted "support Tibet's and Taiwan's independence" when passing before the Legislative Yuan.

Holding signs and banners bearing such slogans as "anti-annexation, anti-invasion, supporting Tibet's independence," many DPP members joined the march.

When the line of marchers passed the Legislative Yuan, DPP legislative caucus whip Yeh Yi-jin (葉宜津) and DPP Legislator Hsiao Bi-khim (蕭美琴) accepted a statement prepared by the marchers. The march finished in front of the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT), where the demonstrators submitted a statement to a representative of the AIT expressing their concerns.

Where are all the flowers gone, lomg time passing
where are all the flowers gone, long time ago...

Do you know the song?

when will they learn?
When will they understand and bring peace to the world?
When will they stop to think they are smarter and so, that they have the right to torture,or to kill?

When will chinese government start to fix its own country's problems instead of create some new one?

When will they let people think and speak?

Yes !!!
Thanks for this thread, it's a very good job.
I wish that all the taiwanese could know THEIR history, ( and not china's one) and think about who they are.
How many really know what is 228, what the KMT did to teachers, lawyers and intellectuals, that member of the government went in jail because they tried to protect democracy...
I wish there are more people like you, telling the truth and active, to give a real future to Formosa : Republic of Taiwan
