Former Political Prisoners Protest Revised National Security Law|政治犯上凱道 批國安5法"白色恐怖2.0"
Many congregated at the Jing-Mei White Terror Memorial Park to protest against the latest amendment to the National Security Act, which they believe, does not clearly define its boundaries and could incriminate people for simply voicing their support for unification.
A large number of former political prisoners, some are wheelchair bound, have congregated at the Jing-Mei White Terror Memorial Park to voice their protest against the latest amendment to the National Security Act. They said that the new law reminds them of the White Terror era. The protestors listed one of the articles in the new law, which states that those who help any organization in China can be subject to more than 7 years of imprisonment as well as fines of up to NT$100 million. However, there is no clear definition of what an organization is, and this allows the government to incriminate anybody who travels frequently between Taiwan and Mainland China without proper evidence.
The statement allows the incrimination of anyone who helps an organization in China. Actually, anyone could come into contact with an organization linked to the Communist Party of China. Take (Taipei Mayor) Ko Wen-je, for example. He recently took part in the Shanghai-Taipei Twin City Forum, he could be said to have broken the law according to the revised act. When average citizens travel to China, the travel agencies that provide them with some good treats could be administered by the CPC.
81-year old Huang Ying-wu once took part in an underground organization, and served 8 years in prison in 1967. He believes the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) is adopting the same strategies as the KMT back in the early days when they were opposing the CPC, which is a deviation from the spirit of transitional justice. He believes close cross-strait relations is vital for the life of people on both sides of the Taiwan Strait.
Technically speaking, it is underground organization work. Me along with 20 others were arrested for opposing the KMT (during the White Terror era). Many of my friends were imprisoned, a violation of Article 2-3. Therefore, we believe what the DPP is implementing today is absolutely wrong, and we're very angry about it.
Many have come to the Presidential Office building to hand in their petition. These victims during the White Terror era said that there were members of the DPP who protested along with them when they opposed the KMT back in that era. They have called on the DPP to retract the articles implemented in the revised National Security Act. The presidential office accepted their petition but did not give any response.
