Civic groups and pro-Taiwanese independence parties gathered at the Taipei District Court yesterday
to lodge a provisional injunction aimed at halting the Ministry of Education’s proposed adjustments to high-school curriculum guidelines.
The group said the adjustments are an attempt by the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) to use the state education system to brainwash students with China-centric textbook material.
The legal move and rally activities were organized by the Taiwanese National Congress and the Taiwan Government Party.
The groups’ leaders said the move is to support protests by high-school students aimed at blocking the amendments, adding that going through a judicial process would be the most effective way of achieving their objectives. [FULL STORY]
