Summer tours to China organized by the China Youth Corps are being conducted in
collaboration with Chinese propaganda units, the Mainland Affairs Council said on Thursday.
Schools in Taiwan should not dance to the tune of China’s propaganda and should refrain from posting or distributing promotional material for such tours, council spokesman Chiu Chui-cheng (邱垂正) said.
Furthermore, organizations in Taiwan and China are prohibited from recruiting students for China’s educational institutions, Chiu said, citing the Act Governing Relations Between the People of the Taiwan Area and the Mainland Area (台灣地區與大陸地區人民關係條例).
The council would continue to monitor related developments, he said in response to media queries about reports that the organization has been recruiting senior-high school students for educational trips to China this summer. [FULL STORY]
