I have to leave the country so if there is enough time and interest post 2/26 we can also invite residents, or do a group arranged to the LoSheng community for a talk. They have an English translator very familiar with the case but let's see how this documentary pans out first!
Forget about the tag lines of human rights, forget about either the blue or green parties in Taiwan, placing blame on one or the other; when both have done little to nothing for the civil liberties of the people, instead dwelling and using past emotions and corruption to get your vote. Learn about Taiwan from those who actually experience it and get involved now. You can still do something to save LoSheng and so many other cases ongoing in the community.
You can search LoSheng Sanitorium on the web or 樂生 ( esp http://pnn.pts.org.tw/main/?tag=樂生 if you can Mandarin or want to view some images )
