The Academia Historica is to publish a compilation of historical materials related to late democracy activist Chen Wen-chen (陳文成), including documents that link Chen’s case to the Kaohsiung Incident, the academy’s curator said.


Using freedom to destroy freedom

The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) was formed as a result of the dangwai (黨外, “outside the party”) democracy movement. The dangwai movement started in the late 1960s and continued until it finally managed to break the ban on political parties in 1986.

Many democratic demands were raised during this period, such as calls to end martial law, election of the full legislature, lifting of the party ban, and the rights to the freedoms of expression, assembly, association, lecture and publication, an independent judiciary, the nationalization of the military and so on.
