Dear Mr. Kofi A. Annan,
   Mrs. Hillary Rodham Clinton,

Beijing, Dec. 2 ---

Two former Tiananmen Square student leaders began a hunger strike on Wednesday (Dec. 2, 1998) to protect against a new round-up of dissidents. But Beijing took a harsh line, and in a swipe at the United States' warned against foreign interference.

Beijing officer always said that "This is an internal matter and other nations should not interfere" the statement returned.

Earlier, the United States sharply criticized the detentions. "We view his detention for peaceful exercising fundamental freedoms guaranteed by international human rights instruments as a serious step in the wrong direction" Rubin added.

On the other hand; Taiwan have human rights and animal rights also. The letter come from Pamela Burns President Hawaiian Humane Society, said that:

" We would like to offer our most sincere congratulation to you and the people of Taiwan for the recent passage of the Animal protection law. It is very important step toward the humane treatment of animal in Taiwan. We recently had the honor of providing training to Taiwanese animal care professionals in Hawaii. We were must impressed with their sincere desire to learn and commit to improving the welfare of animals. We are proud of the cooperative efforts between the National Pintung University of Science and Technology, the Republic of China Environmental .

Protection Administration, the Humane Society of the United States Humane Society International, and the Hawaiian Humane Society, I know together, we can make a difference in the lives of animal in Taiwan."

On above reasons; Taiwan is worth supporting.

For concerning about pro-democracy dissidents of communist China, Mike Jendrzejczyk, Washington director of Human Rights Watch / Asia, viewed Xu's arrest as particularly ominous following a published interview in which parliamentary chairman Li Peng, mainland China's former Prime Minister, ruled out any move toward great political pluralism.



Sincerely Yours,
Yang Hsu-Tung.
