Taipei Universiade: Groups call for use of ‘Taiwan’ at Universiade

By Abraham Gerber  /  Staff reporter

Participant Lu Mei-ju (盧美如) said she came because she hoped Taiwanese could “hold their heads high” and walk out from under Chinese restrictions while participating in international society.

However, she also expressed regret over the lack of participation by young people in yesterday’s event.

“I did not think that the majority of participants would be older,” she said. “Taiwan’s future is in the hands of young people, but it seems that old people are helping them defend and preserve their future.”
