Taiwan resident protests demolition by placing five-starred Chinese flag on roof
Summary: A few days ago, a Taiwan resident planted the Chinese five-starred flag on his roof after losing a legal dispute over demolition [of his property]. This resident claims Taiwan’s judiciary and administration “serve the bourgeoisie/capitalists”.
Video of a Taiwan news report:
A copy on YouTube:
In the video, it is explained that the land involved in Taipei city belongs to the government who now wants to reclaim it. The government wants to demolish the illegally constructed homes on the land and is offering 10k NTD per square meter as compensation. One resident “owner” has placed the five star red PRC flag as protest. A comparison is shown between the land prices on both sides of the street, where the newer building on the other side of the street is valued at 400-500k NTD per square meter, asking if the offered compensation is too low. Not all of the residents agree with the protest.
Comments from NetEase:
Taiwan masses who do not know the truth!
What a niu person.
Taiwan brothers~~~ you don’t know the [real] situation for us in the mainland. If you had fallen on this side, you would’ve set yourself on fire or been killed in your sleep long ago!
He’s clearly mocking us!!!!!!!
It’s probably ridiculing the Taiwan’s administration as being the same as the current mainland government.
This century’s funniest joke!
What kind of person is this, only when he loses does he think of what the country should’ve done.
Compatriot, if you were in the mainland, not only would your house be torn down, even you would be torn asunder.
Comments from Tiexue:
If he had seen the mainland’s violent forced demolitions, I bet he would immediately change to hanging the American flag.
Is it possible that he doesn’t know…?
Even hanging a portrait of Chairman Mao is no use… [against forced demolition]
So can those who are suffering forced demolitions in China raise the KMT’s Blue Sky with a White Sun flag?
Does he not watch China news? We’ve changed too!
Haha, this brother is making fun of the mainland, right?
It is expressing dissatisfaction with the administration, it doesn’t mean he is fond of the mainland!
