- Late on Sunday August 21, 2005 a violent riot erupted
by more than 1,600 ethnic, migrant workers building a
mass transit railway project in Kaohsiung Taiwan.
Workers set fire to their dormitory in southern
Taiwan, burnt cars and hurled rocks at police after
some were apprehended. There are estimated between
300,000 to 500,000 migrant workers on Taiwan many of
whom are tricked into working on Taiwan with offers of
lucrative jobs only to find themselves as slaves to
âcontractorsâ and âagentsâ on Taiwan.
Below is a petition to the Director General Juan
Somaviaf of the International Labour Organization to
immediately take appropriate actions to investigate
the ongoing atrocities being perpetrated by the
Taiwanese against ethnic minority workers on Taiwan.
Please help the people on Taiwan.
