Culture minister urged to protect sector’s workers

CROSS-STRAIT THREAT:TFPF members say the creative industries have been hurt by low salaries and increased outsourcing and the service pact would cause more harm

Author Neil Peng (馮光遠) said he has received information that the police have allegedly tagged specific Facebook pages and Web sites that are against the service trade agreement or a controversial nuclear power plant for surveillance.

On Wednesday night, photographs of National Police Agency documents announcing the establishment of “an Internet army” (網軍) to support the surveillance and handling of “crowd-gathering activities” were posted online.

“Targeting online comments and creations could make the environment even more harsh for the people who posted them,” Peng said.
