(TibetanReview.net, Mar21, 2015) – A civil society group campaigning for an independent Taiwan has on Mar 14 inaugurated a Tibetan Uprising Tower and Martyrs Memorial in Caotun, Nantou, in the middle of the country. The tower was built by the Taiwan Tati Cultural and Educational Foundation in memory of the many Tibetans who had carried out self-immolation protests during their struggle for freedom.

The tower is built in the Taiwan Holy Mountain Ecological Education Park, centre for education and a memorial to those who had sacrificed their lives for Taiwan’s democracy, freedom and human rights.

Rising 5-6 meters tall, the tower is placed on a base of marble engraved with a memorial inscription and a Tibetan national flag. Names of all the self-immolated martyrs since 2009 are inscribed in Tibetan.

Mr Hsu-tung Yang, chairman of the Foundation, presided over the opening ceremony. He said the Taiwanese and Tibetans shared a common goal of fighting for democracy and independence, and in the resistance of China’s violence.

Chairman Dawa Tsering of the Tibet Religious Foundation of His Holiness the Dalai Lama joined democracy activists, monks and nuns and others at the opening ceremony.
