Fight for the Island - Punsu No Tao

Taiwan, 2013, 65 min, Mandarin &Tao, English subtitles

There are 3 nuclear power plants in Taiwan, the Island which lies 180 kilometres off the coast of  mainland China. Taiwan's government has built the nuclear plants for economical development, but it dumps the nuclear waste onto the indigenous lands. One of the „nuclear“ night-mares is the nuclear waste storage site on the Island Punsu no Tao, „Orchid Island“. It was build without consulting the Island‘s indigenous Tao people. For years they protest against the nuclear waste storage site.
