On May 17, 2009, the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP, 民進黨) will hold a rally on Taipei's Ketagalan Blvd. (凱達格蘭大道) to protest the Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) government's pro-China policies which continue to hurt the people of Taiwan.

Since Ma took office in May 2008, 1 million people have lost their jobs, raising the measurable unemployment to 6 percent. But that doesn't tell the whole story.

Still others (like my wife) are "partially unemployed" -- that is, their hours have been cut. Others have it worse than that -- they are on forced unpaid leave.

Claiming that they want China to help rescue the economy, the Ma government continues to push policies that the public has no information about, and they keep bringing Taiwan closer and closer to being annexed by authoritarian China. They even want to sign an Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement (ECFA, 經濟合作架構協議) with China, even though China wants to use such an agreement to trap Taiwan and gain benefits only for themselves.

EDITORIAL: ECFA: An instrument of betrayal

At the same time, the Ma government continues pushing for changes to the Parade and Assembly Law (集會遊行法), but their proposed changes will make Taiwan's law more like the even more oppressive laws of Singapore.

The "fortunate sons" (and daughters and spouses) of the Chinese Nationalist Party (Kuomintang, KMT, 中國國民黨) "elites" (貴族, the so-called "high-class mainlanders") get all the benefits while the people of Taiwan are growing hungry.

Are you just gonna sit there and take it?!

Use your right to protest while you still can! Show the world that all the news that paints Ma Ying-jeou as "China-friendly" in contrast to former president Chen Shui-bian (陳水扁) -- whom the media constantly painted as a "troublemaker" merely because he tried to protect Taiwan's sovereignty -- is pure propaganda to cover Ma's betrayal of Taiwan.

The only way to change things is to let the world see with their own eyes that Ma is NOT a "popular president."

Nixon was always saying 'peace with honor' and 'my country, love it or leave it,' but we knew better 'cause the guy was obviously evil.
