Cadence Column: Asia, April 3, 2017


China continues an uphill battle with the Western media. Sunflower students were cleared of all charges in their occupation of their nation’s legislature three years ago, almost to the day. Joined by leaders Lin and Chen, Joshua Wong from Hong Kong’s Umbrella movement urged the release of a Taiwanese college instructor, Lee Ming-che, from China’s … Continue reading

Taiwan is playing on China’s clumsiness, and China doesn’t know what to do


China could just take Taiwan by force with its 2.29 million troops and 2,800 aircraft, ending debate about whether the democratic, self-ruled island is part of Chinese territory. But that move would park an enraged, rebellious population just offshore and anger the major countries that back China’s huge economy. China prefers peaceful unification with Taiwan. … 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

Taiwan demonstrations continue: western media forgets


As the Sunflower Movement stated upon leaving Taiwan‘s legislative chamber, they would return. The movement never had “tunnel vision”, but was focused on a long list of grievances.

Taiwan’s KMT party exhibits pre-Nazi-like behaviour

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. This type of legislation, supporting the DPP (民進黨) and Sunflower movement’s request for transparency, would be a significant change in Taiwan’s legislative process. … Continue reading
