<nettime> Forcefully destroy and confiscate farms for Foxconn in Taiwan- the violence of government and the ignorance of mass media


Taiwan's Miaoli County government destroy with power shovels and
forcefully confiscate farms without landowners' permission. (part
pictures are  available in
http://www.taiwangoodlife.org/story/20100702/2191)

Some farms stop  shovels with their flesh and blood body. The scene
was similar with Tiananmen Square Massacre in 1989. The main
difference between these conflicts is China is a centralized state and
Taiwan is democratic country. China employed military army to control
media but Miaoli County government paid much money to avoid TV and
newspaper reporting this protest.

Until now, mainstream media still try to cover this news with fake
story. No member of council or Parliament mention this violence in
public. Our only weapon is Internet to let more and more  people know
what really happened in Taiwan.
