Taiwanese organizers in Kaohsiung, Taiwan’s second largest city, plan to show the controversial film, “Ten Conditions of Love” next month, sparking outrage in the Chinese hacker community once again. Given the fact that it is Taiwan, it is doubly outrageous.
Now all eyes turn to the Taiwanese film festival:
Anonymous hackers have attacked a Taiwan film festival over plans to screen a documentary on the US-based leader of China’s predominantly Muslim Uighur minority, festival organizers said Tuesday.
A message, posted on a blog run by one of the organizers of the Kaohsiung Film Festival, blamed Rebiya Kadeer for recent bloody unrest in northwest China’s Xinjiang region, which is home to the Turkic-speaking Uighurs.
“I don’t know if you heard about the violence (in Xinjiang) and if you know how many people were left homeless. It is all because of that woman,” said the message, referring to Kadeer.
