Smith on Student Protests: Taiwan Burns as a Beacon of Freedom



Friday, April 11, 2014

China Aid Association

(Washington, D.C.—April 11, 2014) Rep. Chris Smith, (R-NJ), released comments yesterday, calling the student protests in Taiwan a “beacon of freedom.”

The protests, also known as the Sunflower Student Movement, were against the Cross-Strait Service Trade Agreement (CSSTA), being passed without a clause-by-clause review from the Legislative Yuan and the Executive Yuan of Taiwan. The CSSTA makes it easier for China to set up branches of businesses in Taiwan and vice versa. Protesters believe that passing the agreement will damage the economy in Taiwan and open the door for political pressure from China.

The protests took place between March 18 and April 10. Smith's press release can be read below:
