At Taiwan, China's "People's Armed Police," with clubs and riot shields in hand without any mercy frantically beating unarmed and bleeding people who are willing to sacrifice their lives. These people are precisely whom the KMT administration, in control of TV and news media, labels as "violent agitators."
It's precisely these "violent agitators," through their bleeding, and sacrificing of their lives, Taiwan can dissolve the "Ten-Thousand-Year Republic Representatives" (lifetime senators), lift the Martial Law, end the White Terror, and liberalize freedom of assembly, association, press, democracy, human rights, speech, and the right to directly vote for presidency.
Today, China's "People's Armed Police" are implementing Martial Law at Taiwan, China's takeover of Taiwan is imminent. The pain and tragedy of the February 28th 1947 shall again, without discriminating between provencals and mainlanders, equally suffer tragic and ruthless ethnic cleansings and massacre!

The Central Government lost a fine opportunity to indicate to the Chinese people and to the world at large its capability to provide honest and efficient administratrion. They cannot attribute their failure to the activities of the Communists or of dissident elements. The people anticipated sincerely and enthusiastically deliverance from the Japanese yoke. However, Chen Yi and his henchmen ruthlessly, corruptly, and avariciously imposed their regime upon a happy and amenable population. The Army conducted themselves as conquerors. Secret police operated freely to intimidate and to facilitate exploitation by Central Government officials....
The island is extremely productive in coal, rice, sugar, cement, fruits and tea. Both hydro and thermal power are abundant. The Japanese had efficiently electrified even remote areas and also established excellent railroad lines and highways. Eighty per cent of the people can read and write, the exact antithesis of conditions prevailing in the mainland of China.
There were indications that Formosans would be receptive toward United States guardianship and United Nations trusteeship. They fear that the Central Government contemplates bleeding their island to support the tottering and corrupt Nanking machine, and I think their fears well founded"
