Green Island human rights camp

There is a human rights camp on Green Island (綠島) from 19-22 July 2009. Green Island was used as a prison camp during the White Terror period. The camp provides a chance to learn about this important part of Taiwan’s history in the place where it happened.

The organisers are seeking 15 foreign students to join. Applicants need to have good Chinese-language communication skills and be interested in human rights in Taiwan. The trip is free, but you need to pay your own way to the starting point in Taidong. Details of the trip and how to apply can be found here (in Chinese only).
