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!

你是否也熱愛台灣,希望台灣可以透過「台灣特色」,長期永續經營?唯有愛護自然美景與尊重多元文化才能延續台灣的多元特色,讓台灣在世界有立足之地。

台灣有台東這麼美的景色,台灣原住民又是世界的南島語族重要的發源地與發展場所,並歷經各種政權統治而在他們的祖墳下流下多層次的痕次。要讓世人知道台灣有這些寶貴的歷史文化觀光資產,我們就必須徹底實踐尊重多元文化。

為什麼我們可以允許政府對同樣是台灣人民的部落同胞這麼殘忍?如果今天是我們自己祖先的墓,被政府問都不問就要強制遷葬,您會作何感想?

請留下你的大名,讓政府知道台灣人還在繼續奮鬥!
