Former vice secretary of the National Security Council (NSC) Parris Chang recently wrote in the Formosa Post that NSC Secretary-General Su Chi visited China in 2005 when he was serving as a Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) legislator and that he was looked after by the Chinese government.

During his stay, he gave a speech at a Chinese Communist Party (CCP) school in which he spoke out against the US government’s sale of military items to Taiwan, a move that caused the US to suspect Su’s allegiance, Chang said.

An ironic group to fight the CCP

E-mail Print PDF

A few of my friends and I have established an anti-Chinese Communist Party (CCP) organization.

The idea was proposed by Professor Lee Hsiao-feng last year before Chinese envoy Chen Yunlin visited Taiwan. We have called it the Taiwan Youth Anti-Communist Corps. Aside from being ironic, the name captures our goal of focusing on Taiwanese youth.

The name is similar to the China Youth Anti-Communist National Salvation Corps (“China Youth Corps” for short).

Taiwan Nation Alliance convener Yao Chia-wen (姚嘉文) yesterday said that members of the alliance’s pro-localization groups will take part in a major rally against President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) to be staged by activist group Citizen 1985 on Double Ten National Day tomorrow.

“The alliance has three demands: that Ma step down to take responsibility for causing political turmoil; that the Special Investigation Division [SID] of the Supreme Prosecutors’ Office be abolished for colluding with the president in conducting illegal wiretapping; and that the cross-strait service trade pact be blocked,” Yao said.
