Taiwan: 200 bloggers joint action

The Save Lo Sheng Sanatorium campaign has developed into 200 bloggers joint action. In less than 18 hours, the bloggers got 150,000(TWD) for posting an ad in apple daily news to express their anger towards the state violence and the mainstream media's lack of coverage on the issue.

The action is initiated by HeMiDEMi, and supported by many bloggers who wanted to save the neglected news back to the frontpage in the newspapers. Coolloud has a detailed report (zh).

The ad revealed information of 90% reservation, and emphasized that Hsinchuang city may also benefit from the reservation. Another joint action was also organized to make T-shirts with words “Saving Lo-sheng” on them. Benefits from selling these T-shirts will be donated to the campaign. […]

  • […] 部落客們聯合募集了超過新台幣20 萬元,用於在蘋果日報上刊登他們訴求的廣告。在廣告中呈現了90% 保留方案的資訊,並且強調新莊人也會應為保留樂生而受益。另一個行動是號召購買印有「保留樂生」的 T-Shirt,所得之收益會捐給樂生保留自救會。 […]
