    Taiwanese Mafia Backs Seige Against Students Occupying the Legislative Yuan

     
    In a press conference today, March 31st, 2014, President of the China Unification Advancement Party, Mr. Chang An-Le, openly expressed support for representatives from the labor industry in their plans to lay siege to students occupying the Legislative Yuan.

    Chang, also leader of infamous Taiwanese mafia association Bamboo Union Gang, holds close ties with the ruling Kuomingtang administration. In response to the 350 thousand strong crowd who gathered in front of the Presidential Building in Taipei to protest Taiwan's trade pact with China, and after President Ma refused to meet students' demands for legislating laws for the deliberation of cross-strait agreements, Chang condemned students for occupying parliament and for crippling its legislative functions.

    Chang was wanted by Taiwanese authorities from 1996-2013 for his violation of the Organized Crime Prevention Act, but has returned to the island since June, 29th, 2013, just after the current Kuomingtang administration sealed the Cross-Strait Service Trade Pact with Mainland China.

    Chang says he will not be personally present in the April 1st Fool's Day contestation against students of the Sunflower Movement.
