Taiwan Tati Cultural and Educational Foundation

Cross-strait rules that may harm the public

After a consensus in the third meeting between Straits Exchange Foundation (SEF) Chairman Chiang Pin-kung and China’s Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Strait (ARATS) Chairman Chen Yunlin, the Ministry of Economic Affairs announced on June 30 that Chinese investment would be allowed in Taiwan.

This violates both the Constitution and the Act Governing Relations between the Peoples of the Taiwan Area and the Mainland Area and could damage national security and infringe on the rights of Taiwanese.

The shame of restoring a memorial to a killer

Five days before the administration of President Ma Ying-jeou abruptly changed the name of National Taiwan Democracy Memorial Hall back to “Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall,” the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) held a ceremony in memory of the victims of the 228 Incident and the White Terror at Liberty Square in front of the edifice to commemorate the 22nd anniversary of the lifting of martial law.

A true experience of White Terror

At about 9pm on July 14, my wife received a phone call from the local section chief of the Investigation Bureau of the Ministry of Justice. He said there would be a report on the alleged arrival of pro-­Xinjiang independence activists in Taiwan in Next Magazine magazine the following day and that according to information obtained from the bureau’s Kaohsiung office, the activists were in some way connected to me. The man first requested to visit us at home and then said he was already downstairs.

Thanks for nothing, Mr Ma

President Ma Ying-jeou is the most pretentious of all presidents in the world. It is clear that he has no interest in Taiwan’s sovereignty, as he has shown throughout the preparations for the World Games. He showed no interest until he decided to attend the Games two days before the opening ceremony.

Sovereignty is what we could find in the opening ceremony of the Games through its amazing performances that all related to Taiwan’s culture.

Supreme Court asked to end Taiwan's "political purgatory" while President Obama remains silent

The United States Supreme Court has now been asked to answer the longstanding 'Taiwan question' that has haunted U.S. foreign policy since World War II. In April, the District of Columbia U.S. Court of Appeals declared Taiwan to be in a state of "political purgatory" and urged President Barack Obama to act "expeditiously" to resolve the matter.

The appellate court declined to interpret the San Francisco Peace Treaty that governs Taiwan saying the issue was a "political matter" outside the scope of the court's authority. President Obama has been silent on Roger Lin, et al vs. United States, which seeks U.S. protection while the formal international legal status of Taiwan is resolved.
