When the government in Eastern Taiwan decides that the indigenous people's cemetery burials are "too ugly to be part of a tourist site, hence in need of a forced removal" they did not realize that they are repeating the colonizers' mentality: thinking they are "improving" the environment of the "savages." The burials involve the notion of ancestral spirits and the strong ties between ancestral lands and the people.

The tribes are strongly protesting against it, but the government did not drop the project yet.

We need your help to make this issue global. Please share the petition.

Please join us and make your voice heard. The government of Taitung County (and the Town) has to be stopped!
