Commemorating the 74th Anniversary of the 228 Incident, Mayor Cheng: Cherish the happiness of democracy, freedom, and human rights in Taiwan

 

In the afternoon of February 28th, Taoyuan City Mayor Cheng Wen-Tsan went to 228 Peace Memorial Park in Luzhu District to attend the Commemoration of the 74th Anniversary of the 228 Incident in Taoyuan City and present flowers to pay tribute to the victims. Mayor Cheng stated that the 228 Incident in 1947 was a scar and fault in Taiwan's history. By reflecting on the incidents of the 228 in the Commemoration every year, he hopes that Taiwan will no longer have the State apparatus committing human rights abuses and killing people and cherish the hard-earned democracy, freedom, and ethnic harmony. Also, it allows the new generation to understand the importance of the 228 Incident to Taiwan's history, to cultivate democracy in Taiwan, to protect human rights, and to move towards a brighter future together.

 

Mayor Cheng said that human rights are universal values. They will not lose their firm beliefs due to changes in the times, nor will they be abandoned due to economic and trade interests or military threats. This is the major consensus in Taiwan for our society has become mature and democratic. In the past, because of disrespect for human rights and lack of democracy, the State apparatus could arbitrarily arrest and incriminate people, depriving many ancestors of their freedom and lives. They are now unable to speak for and redress grievances for themselves. Therefore, as a token of Transitional Justice, 228 Incident Commemoration is very important.
