daubed the statue of a prominent Taiwan Independence leader in Tainan with red paint.

The incident followed the sawing off of a leg from President Chiang Kai-shek’s equestrian statue on the campus of National Chengchi University in Taipei Friday, seen as retaliation against vandalism directed against the 228 Peace Memorial.
