Chairman Chen Deming’s (陳德銘) tour of the nation continued to be marked with protests yesterday.
In a visit to Jinan Temple (進安宮) in Yilan County’s Nanfangao (南方澳) — accompanied by Want Want Group (旺旺集團) chairman Tsai Eng-meng (蔡衍明) — Chen was greeted from across the road by Falun Gong protesters, who held a banner and signs behind barriers in a designated protest zone.
Green Party-Social Democratic Party Alliance legislative candidate Wu Shao-wen (吳紹文) and independent candidate Sun Po-yu had earlier been hauled away from the temple’s entrance after they attempted to protest the negotiations on a cross-strait trade in goods agreement. [FULL STORY]
