The "Remembrance for Des" memorial will take the form of a community gathering, aimed not just at remembering Tagubasi but also at forging links between Taiwanese and migrant workers in Zhunan Township, Miaoli County where she lived, the organizers said.
"Despite the language and culture barriers, everyone can get together and work toward understanding each other because at the end of the day, we all live in the same area," said one of the organizers Sha Yen-hsi (沙彥羲), manager of Iasangart art workshop in the township.
Tagubasi, 29, who worked at an electronics plant in Jhunan Science Park in Miaoli, died Aug. 28 as a result of burns after she accidentally dropped a container of hydrofluoric acid earlier in the day while on duty at the factory. [FULL STORY]
