Taiwan Tour: Tainan (Part 2)

Walking around Tainan before the screening yesterday, we noticed many "No Nukes: No More Fukushimas" flags around the city.  I was surprise to see so many people publicly displaying their anti-nuclear sentiments outside their homes and shops.

The screening of "A2-B-C' was sponsored by the Homemakers United Foundation (INFO), and when we arrived at the venue, the first thing they asked me to do was to sign some of the "No Nukes: No More Fukshimas" flags that were to be sold for a fundraiser.

Around 150 people in the audience, and during the post-screenings Q&A, the first question was from a young girl who asked "What can we do to help?".  The simple act of asking this question is the first step to finding a solution, and during my time in Taiwan, I have met so many young people who are engaging in the world around them and searching for a way to make a change.  This has been so amazing.

Following the Q&A, I mentioned that I had brought a camera and asked that anyone who felt moved to offer a message to the people affected by the nuclear meltdown to please come to the front.  A long queue formed...
