Scientology Network’s VOICES FOR HUMANITY, the weekly series presenting heroic change makers from a variety of faiths, cultures and nations, working to uplift their communities, announces a new episode featuring the work of Taiwanese human rights activist Simone Hsu.
VOICES FOR HUMANITY airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Scientology Network.
When endemic human rights abuses threatened 5,000 years of Chinese culture, Taiwan native Simone Hsu began a movement to bring human rights back to Asia. Starting in the schools and spreading it through the streets, she is raising awareness of peace, tolerance and true freedom through the implementation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights across all of Asia.
Born under the martial law of post-World War II, Simone grew up in a repressive rural township in west Taiwan. For this dark period of 40 years, human rights were essentially obliterated as an estimated 100,000 Taiwanese were executed or imprisoned. Witnessing corporal punishment of fellow students in elementary school and classmate bullying in university, Simone felt an indelible impression left upon her. This sparked a passion to change conditions, bringing basic human rights back to her beloved nation. Working with Youth for Human Rights, Simone’s campaign began modestly but grew quickly, soon spreading to more than 17 million people. In a country where human rights was once nonexistent, today it is a new reality creating a cultural revival.
