Taipei, Feb. 9 (CNA) The key to commemorating the 228 incident is to remember that
the real masters of the country are the people and the state should be built on a foundation of liberal democracy, a Presidential Office official said on Thursday.
A government that recognizes these facts will not subject its people to violence, office spokesman Alex Huang (黃重諺) told the press in commenting on the activities reportedly organized by the Beijing regime to commemorate the incident, an anti-government uprising in Taiwan that started on February 28, 1947 when the Republic of China (ROC) government ruled China and Taiwan from Nanjing.
Commemorative activities to mark the 70th anniversary of the 228 incident will be held by related government agencies, China’s Taiwan Affairs Office said on Wednesday.
