Keeping up with Su Beng

I've been trying to keep up with Su Beng's ongoing speaking engagements here, but admitedly I'm not always able to post things on a timely basis. Sometimes his speaking events are shared only a couple of days in advance on his Facebook feed, or as they happen, so I don't learn about them until after the fact. I'm going to adjust my approach to documenting Su Beng's appearances on a monthly basis.

Here are some photos from Su Beng's appearances earlier this month.

July 6th

Su Beng's July 6th speaking appearance in Kaohsiung was covered in this Chinese language newspaper article: http://www.peoplenews.tw/news/1d0e2484-7968-4080-b0a1-35cc1a5a951a 

Loosely translated, the title of the article: 史明:台灣是21世紀唯一還沒解放的殖民地 reads: "Taiwan is the only colonized nation that had not been liberated in the 21st century" -Su Beng.

According to the article, Su Beng said that the Kuomintang (Chinese Nationalist Party) seems to be out of competent people. He urged young generations of Taiwanese to take advantage of the present, to stand up and declare that they want Taiwan independence. They need to be brave and to go for it Su said.

Besides Su Beng, there were speakers whose ages spanned across several generations. The audience was also composed of three generations. The site was so crowded that many could not get into the venue and they were only able to listen to live stream of the event. 

Toward the end of Su Beng's talk, members of the cosplay group "鬼島旗兵" (which literally translates as: ghost island flag soldiers) came and stood behind Su Beng. Here's a photo of the group with Su Beng.
