there was no conflict between people from different provinces,
but suppression of the islandˇ¦s culture caused a big gap between
The Taiwanese dialect was originated from the southern Fukien dialect,
it is a profound language and has a history longer than Mandarin. To
forfeit it, see it as a lower-class dialect, is not respecting it as the
islandˇ¦s mainstream language. The indigenous peopleˇ¦s mother tongue
was neglected even more. If our government officials paid more respect
to the islandˇ¦s culture in the past, there would not be strikes,
protests by members of the Democratic Progressive Party and/or the
indigenous people today. Now it is out of the question to counterattack
mainland China, and we have our own President of the Republic of China.
For the future of all Chinese, we must keep on striving.
