Dear Mrs. Hillary Rodham Clinton,

Japan's press is reporting almost daily on the pressure Beijing is bringing to bear on Tokyo to include a strident. "Three no's policy on Taiwan in a joint statement to be issued by their leaders. Taiwan hoped to use the recent contact as another starting point to develop new relations with Beijing, but Beijing was still hostile to Taiwan. Beijing's efforts to pressure Taiwan internationally, saying Taiwan had had to sever official ties with Tonga.

Taiwan announced yesterday (Oct. 1 1998) its decision to cut ties with Tonga from November 2 after the south pacific island kingdom officially switched recognition to Beijing. Taiwan is left with just 26 diplomatic allies, mostly poor African and Latin American nations.

At the same time; Chinese border police prevented Peng Ming, the outspoken founder of the reform group China development union, from crossing the border into Hong Kong on his way to the United States.

It is said the officials took Peng into a room and kept him waiting for four hours, then informed him there were problems with his passport and they could not accept it.

In October, China signed the international convenant on political and civil rights, a key UN protocol guaranteeing the rights of assembly free speech and freedom from arbitrary arrest.

Contrary to Beijing; Taiwan want to help Beijing government to do well in democratic procedure. Taiwan is mainland China's future.

There have a letter from United States' Taiwan people respect not only human rights but also animal rights. The letter is'

Dear editor, (the China Post) on behalf of the Human Society of the United States (HSUS)/ Human Society International (HSI) and our more than seven million members and constituents around the world.

I would like to congratulate you and the ROC Legislative Yuan on the recent passage of Taiwan's first animal protection law!

The world community thanks you for your commitment to humanely resolving Taiwan's stray dog problem. This enlightened approach reflects well upon your beautiful island and its people under the agreements signed by our organization and Hawalian Humdne Society with the Republic of China in Taipei this past April.

HSUS/HSI is pleased and proud to be working with officials from the council of agriculture and other government and private agencies to find appropriate solution to this and other animal protection issues. Paul G, Irwin President HSU/HSI.

However; Beijing government need more and more, educated by "what's rights in human and animals".

So; Taiwan need your support.



Sincerely Yours,
Yang Hsu-Tung.
