Letters to US President Barack Obama

Letter to Time on “Reshooting History in a New China.”

E-mail Print PDF

Dear Mr. Abdoolcarim:

Thank you for the informing and interesting article on the October 19th Asia edition of Time magazine, “Reshooting History in a New China.”   However, I write to voice, on the behalf of Tati Foundation, that the Chinese leadership’s thinking has not changed at all since the founding of this totalitarian and Communist regime.  As you have mentioned, injustices and corruption are rampant in China today.  For an average Chinese citizen, life remains tough.  Just like the widespread turmoil and ceaseless revolution in first half of CCP’s sixty years.  Just like the pre-revolutionary KMT regime, riddled with corruption and brutality.  In short, just like the same old days.

E-mail Print PDF

On the behalf of Taiwan Tati Cultural & Educational Foundation, I would like to express concern and outrage as well as sympathy for Iranian protesters demanding a fair voting system after watching CNN reporting from Tehran last night.  The headlines are troubling.  We are particularly concerned about the violation of freedom of speech in that the Iranian government openly requires permission for foreign media reporting…

On US Support for Chen Shui-Bian’s Rights from Jerome Cohen’s Open Letter

E-mail Print PDF

Dear President Obama:

Despite of the impressive achievements in democratization being made by Taiwan over the past two decades, many Taiwanese, and particularly those of us associated with Tati Cultural & Educational foundation, are troubled by the egregiously illegal detainment of our former president Chen Shui-Bian.  Therefore, we are heartened by Professor Jerome Cohen’s June 11th letter, published on South China Morning Post, calling for “Taiwan’s law professors, legal scholars, social scientists and others with unique qualifications to promote public understanding…” to speak up against KMT’s, spear-headed by Ma Ying-Jeou, flagrantly zealous corruption charges against former president Chen and his family while ignoring many cases of similar (and perhaps even more egregious) misconduct by KMT officials and judge’s arbitrary ruling against the former president and his friends and family (“Professor Jerome A. Cohen calls for Taiwan’s legal scholars to speak out on law reforms” by Jerome A. Cohen; US-Asia Law Institute).

Presenting Dr. Yang’s Poem, “Authoritarian Capitalists – Demons Everywhere”

E-mail Print PDF

Dear President Obama:

In response to the flagrantly pro-China aptitude of many US multi-nationals during the past few years, I would like to voice out our concern, in the form of a poem scripted by Taiwan Tati Foundation's chairman, Dr. Yang Hsu-Tung.  Dr. Yang had been a long time advocate of democracy, human rights, and freedom of speech.  His most important recent endeavor is advocating for Taiwan's sovereignty and democratization.  In addition, he also had been actively speaking out against the quasi-KMT organization, National Communication Corporation's (NCC) unconstitutional and illegal manipulation of Taiwan's media industry and abusing our country's freedom of speech.

Accompanied by fellow members of political group Flanc Radical, Yen Ming-wei (顏銘緯), the college freshman who hurled a copy of Formosa Betrayed at President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) last month, reported to the police yesterday afternoon amid cheers of encouragement from supporters.

Police summoned Yen for questioning following two lawsuits filed separately against him, including one by the head of the Shilin military police station for allegedly obstructing officers, and another by a man surnamed Lee (李), who claimed the book hit his stomach.
