Taipei police yesterday detained members of the China Unification Promotion Party (CUPP) for brandishing
a weapon and breaching assembly regulations at a rally outside the Legislative Yuan in Taipei, during which CUPP Chairman Chang An-le (張安樂) stumbled and fell on a prop coffin.
Chang, a former leader of the Bamboo Union gang, led a CUPP contingent to the legislature’s front entrance in the morning to protest remarks by Premier Su Tseng-chang (蘇貞昌) that in the event of an attack by China, he would never surrender, but would protect the nation by fighting to the end, even if he only had a broom.
Chang, who is also known as the “White Wolf,” had party members transport a wooden casket on a small truck that they intended to give to Su, who they said should not call for resistance to a Chinese military invasion, because that would result in many Taiwanese fatalities.
Amid a cordon of police to counter the protest, Chang stood on the truck and ordered that the casket be unloaded. Several police officers tried to block the unloading, resulting in the casket falling sideways, with its lid open, onto the grass of a lane divider on the boulevard in front of the legislature.
