General Douglas MacArthur and the Taiwan Passport Controversy

E-mail Print PDF

General Douglas MacArthur did not agree that the territorial sovereignty of Taiwan was transferred to China on Oct. 25, 1945, or that the native Taiwanese people were correctly classified as having the nationality of "Republic of China."

Nearly 65 years after General MacArthur made these remarks, the native Taiwanese are now beginning to wake up to the reality that their nationality status is incorrect, and that the mistreatment which they receive in the international community is (in large part) due to their misclassification as ROC Chinese.

In order to comprehend the related historical events in more detail, and to better understand General MacArthur's views on these subjects, our study group has done many months of research. The result is this video which all persons interested in Taiwan human rights issues should watch carefully.
