2-2-8 70 years

On this 70th anniversary, we remember the atrocities that happened in Taiwan. How peaceful demonstrations turned into unrest and eradication across the land. We remember the dark period in Taiwan, the years called White Terror.

In LA, we took time to recall, to mourn, and to promise to resist against the horrific ever occurring again.

The 228 Memorial Event in El Monte featured music when words could not express the bountiful grief.

 

Political leaders stood together in support of Taiwan and in remembrance. Guest speakers even featured illustrious people like Assemblyman Phillip Chen and Congresswoman Judy Chu.

In the same building, an exhibition traced the history and effects of those times. Labeled, β€œInjustice, Truth, and Responsibility,” it brings to light a grim historic period and calls for justice. You can check it out in person until March 5th at:
