Tentativo in extremis (la deadline per presentare le candidature per le presidenziali è domani) di ricucitura tra #Ko Wen-je (#TPP|Centro), #Hou (#Kuomintang|Destra cinese) e Terry #Gou (Indipendente).
I tre, per ora, non sono riusciti a decidere dove incontrarsi: Ko e Gou starebbero aspettando Hou al Grand Hyatt, mentre Hou ha inviato i suoi consiglieri all'Hyatt per far sì che Ko e Gou si trasferiscano alla fondazione di #Ma Ying-jeou.
A potential joint bid for Taiwan's presidency by the island's two main opposition parties was in disarray on Saturday as they bickered on how to agree on who will run for president with time running out to make a decision. https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2023/11/18/asia-pacific/politics/taiwan-opposition-bickering/?utm_content=buffer01158&utm_medium=social&utm_source=mastodon&utm_campaign=bffmstdn #asiapacific #politics #taiwan #china #dpp #kuomintang #laichingte #houyuih #kowenje

One thing Hou Yu-ih wants Taiwan’s voters to know about him as they prepare to elect a new president is that he used to be a great cop. And he believes his time working in law enforcement has prepared him to manage one of the world’s most dangerous geopolitical hot spots. https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2023/09/21/asia-pacific/politics/taiwan-top-cop-china-talks-president/?utm_content=buffer3880b&utm_medium=social&utm_source=mastodon&utm_campaign=bffmstdn #asiapacific #politics #taiwan #china #houyuih #kuomintang
From belting out pop songs to fielding hairstyle questions on Instagram, Taiwan's presidential hopefuls are turning more attention to young voters expected to play a key role in presidential and parliamentary elections. https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2023/08/31/asia-pacific/politics/taiwan-parties-younger-voters-elections-loom/?utm_content=buffer227d9&utm_medium=social&utm_source=mastodon&utm_campaign=bffmstdn #asiapacific #politics #taiwan #elections #kuomintang #taiwanpeople039sparty #democraticprogressiveparty #taipei
Today in Labor History May 29, 1881: Chinese educator, nationalist revolutionary and anarchist Li Shizeng was born. He led the anarchist Jinde Hui group (Society for Progress and Virtue), with Wu Zhihui, & Zhang Ji. He also tried unsuccessfully to turn the Guomindang into an anarchist organization. Indeed, he is known as one of the four anti-Communist elders of the Chinese Nationalist Party. In his youth, he earned graduate degrees in chemistry and biology in France, and opened the first European tofu factory.
Congratulations in advance to #Kuomintang for losing the general elections and one mayor in 2024!
Today in Labor History April 12, 1927: The Shanghai massacre of 1927 occurred on this day. Chiang Kai-shek, leader of the right-wing, nationalist Kuomintang, ordered the execution of Chinese Communist Party members in Shanghai, ending the First United Front. They killed up to 10,000 people.
Today in Labor History February 28, 1947: The Kuomintang government in Taiwan put down an anti-government uprising known as the February 28 Incident. They killed 28,000 civilians. And in the White Terror that followed, the government killed, imprisoned or disappeared 30,000 more. These events helped spark the Taiwanese independence movement.
On this particular day, keep this in mind: the #Kuomintang is an invasive parasite in #Taiwan. And #KMT stands for "Kill many Taiwanese."
Great to see the new mayor of Taipei being interrupted in his speech. His main asset with KMT voters is his family name. He's an offspring of the mass-murdering tyrant known as #ChiangKaiShek aka Cash my Cheque.

Today in Labor History February 19, 1927: A General Strike occurred in Shanghai. In March, Communist union workers launched an uprising in Shanghai. However, the Kuomintang quashed the rebellion, slaughtering 5,000-10,000 in the Shanghai Massacre. In the 1940s, the Kuomintang were driven out of mainland China by the Communists, retreating to Taiwan, where they maintained a brutal dictatorship until the 1980s. By many accounts, the Kuomintang rule in Taiwan was even more corrupt and brutal than the Japanese dictatorship that preceded it. In 1947, they slaughtered tens of thousands in the February 28 Incident.
Today in Labor History December 11, 1927: Communist Red Guards launched an uprising in Guangzhou, China known as the Guangzhou Uprising. They took over most of the city and formed a Soviet-style Commune. It was wiped out after three days by the Kuomintang. Purges and mass executions followed. Over 5,700 communists died and at least that number went missing. It was the third failed uprising in 1927, yet uprisings continued across China.
Today in Labor History December 10, 1979: The Kaohsiung (Formosa) Incident, a crackdown on pro-democracy demonstrators in Taiwan. The country was under martial law. From 1949 until the late 1970s, the country was under the one-party rule of the Kuomintang (KMT). In 1978, President Carter had severed ties with the island nation. The KMT canceled elections. In January, 1979, the KMT arrested several opposition leaders. On December 9, police beat up two opposition volunteers. On December 10, they tried to hold the first Human Rights Day celebration. The military police surrounded the demonstrators, leading to violent clashes. The KMT arrested nearly all opposition leaders and held incommunicado for two months.
La historia de este lugar, al menos con ese nombre, la encontramos a finales de los años 20, cuando en 1927 se funda el #Soviet chino de #Hailufeng, el primero de la #Historia y destinado a controlar las zonas comunistas durante la guerra con el #Kuomintang.

Taiwan’s President, Tsai Ing-wen, resigned as head of Democratic Progressive Party, following nationwide losses to the Kuomintang. Key races such as the mayoral races in Taipei, Taoyuan, Taichung, and New Taipei City were all won by Kuomintang candidates. The Taipei election was won by Chiang Wan-an, who is alleged to be the great-grandson of Chiang Kai-shek. #news #worldnews #taiwan #taiwanelection #taipei #kuomintang
