Textbooks already printed: Wu
By Matthew Strong, Taiwan News, Staff Writer
Lin Kuan-hua, 20, was discovered dead on Thursday in what was widely believed to be a protest against government changes in the high-school curriculum guidelines. He was one of 33 people, including three journalists, who were detained for a while after having intruded into the education minister’s offices on July 23-24.
After the news of Lin’s death broke, students again took to the ministry Thursday evening to demand Wu’s resignation and the withdrawal of the curriculum changes, which they say reflect a pro-China ideology.
Coming out of the MOE building before 2 p.m. Friday, Wu remained silent when the students shouted for his resignation.
