Protesters deface CKS Memorial Hall

‘TRUE RECONCILIATION’:From Ethnos to Nation called for the removal of all authoritarian symbols, the end of the ‘ROC regime’ and the establishment of a new nation

By Stacy Hsu  /  Staff reporter

The Transitional Justice Commission, which was inaugurated in May, said that incidents like yesterday’s were the result of the nation’s long-delayed realization of transitional justice.

The incident “shows that Taiwanese society is now at a critical moment,” the commission said.

“We must seriously reflect on the existence of authoritarian symbols and jointly explore ways to remove them so that we can bring about true freedom and democracy in the nation,” it said.

The commission said it would soon submit proposals to Premier William Lai (賴清德) and the public regarding how the memorial hall could be transformed.
