Cadence Column: Asia, February 12, 2018


There are those who know Asia and those who don’t. There are those who know political gaming and those who don’t. Last week, Symphony said that China wouldn’t compromise in a “Sino-Vatico” deal. This week, a retired bishop in Hong Kong said basically the same thing: That if the pope vetoes Beijing too often, Beijing … Continue reading

Taiwan: Sunflower movement demonstrators face persecution


In addition to retaliation from the police (and possibly from the judiciary), persecution and character assassination of those associated with protests has taken on many forms. Those following our fan page and recent events in Taiwan will no doubt be aware of the abuse of power by police. The arrest, interrogation and subsequent release of … Continue reading

‘Sunflower’ students change history


Read the new eBook about the last 21 hours of the Sunflower Movement occupancy. The Sunflower movement made history this month.

Taiwan: Puppet democracies are for children – Washington “adults” don’t understand


Taiwan’s government does not have a robust system of checks and balances as the US does.

After keeping their promise to Taiwan Legislative Yuan Speaker, Wang Jin-pyng (王金平), the students in the “Sunflower” movement who had occupied the nation’s legislature since March 19 demonstrated evidence that contradicts a long-standing, worldwide precedent in court rulings, police action, and decisions made by executive heads of state. This incident may be history’s first evidence, … Continue reading

Sunflower students to leave Taiwan’s legislature Thursday


Taiwan legislative Speaker Wang Jin-pyng (王金平) announced this morning that he would conduct no further discussions in the legislature concerning trade with China until a new law was passed providing oversight affecting all international trade agreements.

Sunflower Movement: A day on the ground in Taiwan protest (photos)


The sun sets on several thousand gathered in Taipei. Police stand guard with riot shields and batons blocking roads and entrances. Streets overflow with students—some standing, most sitting on cardboard, Mylar heat blankets, or interlocking foam pads. Tents and booths line walkways. Traditional Taiwanese food vendors sit at the outskirts. Projection screens and stages can … Continue reading

What exactly is happening in Taiwan? Revolution, that’s what!


Brace yourselves, as now more and more students and energetic activists are getting ready to show up at the Taiwanese Parliament to perform their own version of an Occupy movement. Only today, we know how monumental and catastrophic these sorts of things can be. From China Post’s Article come some very glaringly alarming facts written in a … Continue reading

Taiwan legislature “occupied/retaken”: USA media ignores


Students have taken over Taiwan’s Legislative Yuan meeting chamber for over 106 hours. 12:00pm Friday marked the deadline the student-led mass gave to Taiwan’s dominant party, the KMT, to acknowledge and respond positively to their demands.
