Current Affairs Taiwan 台灣時事 #41 (04-20-2020) PRC's sand and census wars on Taiwan
Manage episode 259369591 series 2601774
Michael Turton (麥哲恩) and co-host Courtney Donovan Smith (石東文) discuss Kaohsiung Mayor Han Kuo-yu's upcoming recall vote, and explain why and how his joining the KMT's central standing committee is problematic--and why New Taipei Mayor Hou Yu-yi was smart to avoid it, and what that might mean for the future of the KMT. The PRC is demanding naturalized Taiwan nationals in Taiwan to comply with their census, and why that is a threat to national security. An armada of illegal sand dredgers from China are shooed off by Taiwan, but it is a sign of growing threat. Taiwanese sports are making it big overseas, and much more!
