criminal-like brutality. However, do you think they could have had
acquittal? No. They have already been murdered. Do you think we can
prosecute the instigator? No. He is still being honoured by those
Moreover, Chiang Kai-Shek regime's great China ideology has brought
us into a miserable state without any identity and leaves China an
excuse to annex Taiwan.
Honest Taiwanese are generous and forgiving. But, none of us could
forget this incident and all the things that KMT regime has ever
to us. And all the mental and physical harms are implacable. We
never compromise with any lame
excuses and some scapegoats. All the victims and their families
a dignity and redressal. We'll never be giving up in doing all our
best and fighting with the evildoers.
The memorial 228 Incident (February the twenty-eighth) is imminent.
sincerely invite you, all old friends and new friends of Taiwan to
your condolences and pray for those victims in 228 Incident, pray
world with integrity, and pray for Taiwan. We also petition for an
international recognition as an independent country in spite of the
suppression from China and without any concession against all the
unfair and unjust treatment.
At the same moment while you are praying, you may also sound it out
Taiwan through the Internet.
Please feel free to use this icon in your
Blog or wherever can be seen, and on February the twenty eighth,
expose your messages that support this event, and sustain Taiwan to

We have no intentions to carry up any hatred and distrust. We only
all the people who sacrificed for this land can be granted dignity
peace. And those who committed the iniquity to them will truly say
sorry to the victims.
Your prayers definitely are our strength, and without your help, we
surely will never have chance to peacefully accomplish our goal of
being an independent country.
God make us servants of His peace:
where there is hate, may we sow love;
where there is hurt, may we forgive;
where there is strife, may we make one.
God bless us all, and Taiwan.
