The Alliance for the Rescue of Datan Algae Reefs yesterday reiterated its call on President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) to protect Taoyuan’s algae reefs, urging her to be humble and live up to her promises.

The alliance created a temporary sculpture depicting the outline of Taiwan proper with 1,000 paper cups on Taipei’s Ketagalan Boulevard.

In Mandarin, “humble” is pronounced qian bei (謙卑), which is similar to the pronunciation of “thousand cups.”

Alliance convener Pan Chong-cheng (潘忠政) said that Tsai should remember her own words, when in 2016 she asked her administration members to be “humble, humble and humble.”
