Taipei, Dec. 25 (CNA) Opposition Kuomintang (KMT) Chairwoman Hung Hsiu-chu (洪秀柱) and her party supporters took to the streets Sunday to protest against a proposed lifting by the government of a ban on imports of food products from radiation-affected areas of Japan.

Standing among several senior KMT officials on Ketagalan Boulevard, Hung accused President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) and her government for considering allowing imports of banned Japanese food products at the expense of the health of Taiwan’s people, adding that she will initiate a recall campaign against Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) lawmakers who support lifting the ban.

“We can no longer tolerate this,” she shouted, calling for the government to have a “rational discussion” of the issue.    [FULL  STORY]
