The 2020 Freedom of Speech Day Celebrations take place in National 228 Memorial Museum (Upcoming events)
As freedom of speech is the right that all people share, to celebrate the National Freedom of Speech Day, marked on 7th April in Taiwan as a tribute to democratic activist Cheng Nan-jung, the Ministry of the Interior will hold a series of activities in National 228 Memorial Museum from 4th to 26th April, including exhibition, film festival and lectures.
The exhibition, “Our Forbidden Past”, features photos, flyers of the 80s social movements, and precious historical relics under Martial law. The film Festival with the highly anticipated “Detention”, which was the box office hit in Taiwan last year, will take the stage first. The lectures on Transitional Justice and banned books will show the importance of education and the reasons of the book censorship under Martial law.
To prevent the spread of the Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID-19), there will be a limit on the number of people. Please register for each activities on the website in advance. We strongly recommend that visitors wear a mask and we will check your body temperature when you visit National 228 Memorial Museum. For further information, please visit website below：
