The China Post has run front-page articles on both Tuesday and Wednesday (Feb. 6 and 7), covering the removal of Chiang Kai-shek statues from Taiwan army barracks. The paper has also pointed out that a pesky group of DPP lawmakers is pushing to rename of Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall as The Taiwan Democracy Hall. Needless to say, this is pissing off KMT legislators, who are claiming that the DPP is rewriting Taiwan's history (since when has Taiwan been democratic, etc.?).
There is a drive to get the statues off the barracks before February 27, as it will be the 60th anniversary of the 2-28 Massacre, where some 30,000 Taiwanese and mainlanders as well were killed. According to DPP lawmakers Chai Trong-rong, Sandy Yen and Hsueh Ling, Chiang is the main "culprit" behind 2-28. (I guess they're talking about, among other things, Chiang's infamous telegram to Taiwan governor Chen Yi, ordering to him "kill them all.")
Defense officials are trying to downplay the removal, claiming that the statues are only being carefully set aside so that they don't get rusty. If the KMT wins in 2008, they promise to dust them off and bring them back out in all their glory.
