Visceral sound: An Adventure into the Heart of Taipei's Noise Scene

Dino had already finished when I arrived at The Wall, I scrambled for my camera as Betty Apple ascended the stage looking like a doll walking straight out of a Japanese manga: geisha eyeliner and short, geometrically cut hair screaming hot pink blue yellow.

History of the Taiwanese Anti-nuclear Movement

The most recent street demonstration against the building of the 4th nuclear power plant in Taiwan has attracted 200,000 citizens to walk the streets (that's 4 times larger than the first anti-nuclear procession right after Fukushima and ten times larger than the first major anti-nuclear procession 2 decades ago).
