Pro-unification Concentric Patriotism Association executive director Chang Xiuye (張秀葉) refuses
to work and spends her time stirring social disorder, so she should not receive the monthly subsidies which the Taipei City Government grants low-income families, Taipei City Councilor Liu Yao-jen (劉耀仁) of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) said yesterday.
Liu said at a Taipei City Council question-and-answer session that Chang, a Chinese who became naturalized through marriage, receives NT$13,215 in monthly subsidies, including NT$6,115 to cover college tuition fees for her 19-year-old son.
The Taipei Department of Social Welfare said that families with a monthly per capita income of less than NT$15,162 are eligible for the subsidies.
Liu played footage of a spat between Chang and Falun Gong practitioners in front of Taipei 101, in which Chang allegedly dared some Falun Gong members she physically assaulted to sue her and shouted insulting remarks. [FULL STORY]
