Keelung must save iconic wharves

By Hung Chih-wen 洪致文

Keelung boasts lots of cultural heritage. Destroying it in the name of development is outright stupid. If the people of Keelung do not wake up before the elections and vote out this thoughtless and crude regime, it will be impossible to preserve the city’s culture and history.

Hung Chih-wen is a professor of geography at National Taiwan Normal University.
