Huang, 81, went on what he called a “Gandhi-style” hunger strike, starting May 19 at the lobby of Taipei Main Station, with the objective of advocating independence and self-determination for Taiwan with a non-violent approach, reported Central News Agency.
On June 20, ruling Democratic Progressive Party Chairman Cho Jung-tai (卓榮泰) and Secretary-General to the President Chen Chu (陳菊) visited him to show their support.
According to Huang’s resistance plans, he would not eat anything except drinking 1,000 ml juice, 1,000 ml milk, and water between May 19 and June 1. He would consume nothing but water afterwards, reported Newtalk. [FULL STORY]
