Tack så mycket !
Dear all, we are the Taiwanese in Sweden. Taiwan is facing a gigantic crisis now. While the executive authorities compromised to China considering economy and Taiwan being endangered from the enormous impact and threat on Taiwanese democracy, we, the Taiwanese citizens overseas, are profoundly convinced that we have to make a statement though couldn't attend in person. We must fight against such ignorance and a so-called democratic country of which neglects the Taiwanese citizens' voice. Contents of the Cross-Straits Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement on Trade in Services signed with China didn't undergo through proper and rightful executive procedures thoroughly. The contents have a potential of causing serious harm to our rights as an independent country. We simply cannot allow it to pass with our hands tied. Our appeals are as follow:
1. We demand the respect of the independence and autonomy of the parliament from the authority. President Ma must take responsibility for this incident, and apologize to the Taiwanese citizens. The Premier, Jiang, Yi-Huah must resign due to the violations of the legislation process.
2. Chang, Ching-chung—the KMT legislator, has violated the constitution by forcing the empty review of the agreement and thus the committee conclusion must be recalled and the agreement must be reviewed rightfully.
3. The Legislative Yuan must complete the legislation and revision concerning the Cross-Straits Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement on Trade in Services as soon as possible so as to supervise each and every agreement (signed and will-be-signed) between Taiwan and China, including Cross-Strait on Trade in Services and Cross-Strait on Trade in Merchandise etc. Before the legislation, we demand all the negotiation, political visits of the authorities and communication between Taiwan and China must come to an halt. The regulation concerning signing such agreements between Taiwan and China must be established.
At last, we firmly contend "Withdraw from Cross-Strait on Trade in Services and Restart the Negotiation". Whether you are currently working or studying here, we have a strong belief that all Taiwanese in Sweden could participate in this petition and defend our beloved hometown, Taiwan. No matter you are Taiwanese or not, If you SUPPORT our Taiwanese democracy, please sign for us!! we will really appreciate it !!
On 2014 Mar. 24th we will got to Taiwan Mission in Sweden in Stockholm to hand this petition in person. Hopefully we could appeal to everyone in Sweden who's concerned to attend and express our concerns about Taiwan.
