Taipei, April 6 (CNA) An exhibition opened Thursday in New Taipei in celebration of
Freedom of Speech Day in Taiwan, showcasing pro-democracy magazines and other items that documented the actions of the opposition movements during the country’s period of martial law.
The exhibition, dubbed “100 Percent Freedom of Speech,” opened at the Jingmei Human Rights Memorial and Cultural Park a day before Freedom of Speech Day, which was designated by the Cabinet last year to commemorate the 27th anniversary of the death of pro-democracy pioneer Cheng Nan-jung (鄭南榕).
Culture Minister Cheng Li-chiun (鄭麗君) said at the opening of the exhibition that Cheng Nan-jung’s tireless pursuit of “100 percent freedom of speech” had contributed to the progressive development of human rights in Taiwan. [FULL STORY]
