Ma hopes Beijing will improve rights

President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) issued a statement yesterday to mark the 23rd anniversary of China’s 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre in which he expressed hope that China would improve its human rights record and initiate democratic development.

For more than two decades, China’s economy has grown rapidly and people’s lives have greatly improved as the country has become increasingly competitive, Ma said.

However, the emotional scars left by the massacre that took place in Beijing on June 4, 1989, have yet to heal and the incident has given the international community an impression of China’s human rights development that has stayed virtually unchanged since then, he said.

“Most ethnic Chinese societies believe that China today is more mature and in a better position to transform into a more diverse and open democratic society. Dealing with the trauma of the June 4 Incident could be the first step toward political reform,” he said.

Ma said Taiwanese and Chinese are all of Chinese origin and share the same cultural heritage, including the concepts of freedom, democracy and human rights.

“We once again reiterate that we cherish the peace created by the two sides over the past four years and hope that the positive interaction will continue,” Ma added.

However, Taiwan and China still differ in human rights development, and these differences will need to be overcome before the two sides can enter a deeper phase of interaction, Ma said.

Minister silent on Tiananmen massacre

Minister of Culture Lung Ying-tai (龍應台) yesterday declined to make a public statement on the Tiananmen Square Massacre, saying that to do so would affect negotiations between Taiwan and China on cultural issues.

At the legislature’s Education and Culture Committee session, Lung was asked by several Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) lawmakers about her views on the bloody crackdown on pro-democracy demonstrators in Beijing on the night of June 4-June 5, 1989.

“My views regarding the June Fourth Incident as a writer have been expressed in my books,” said Lung, a former essayist and cultural critic known for her writings on both Taiwan’s and China’s systems of government.

Lung said she “has the task” of negotiating cultural issues with China under the Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement (ECFA) that was signed in June 2010.

Lung was responding to a question put to her by DPP Legislator Lin Chia-lung (林佳龍) on whether she would attend a concert held in Taipei last night to commemorate the 23rd anniversary of the massacre.

“If I brought my personal views into cross-strait negotiations, I believe Taiwanese would be disappointed,” Lung said.

China tightens Web controls on anniversary

China’s censors blocked Internet access to the terms “six four,” “23,” “candle” and “never forget” yesterday, broadening extensive efforts to silence talk about the 23rd anniversary of China’s bloody June 4 crackdown on pro-democracy protesters.

For the Chinese Communist Party, the 1989 demonstrations that clogged Tiananmen Square in Beijing and spread to other cities remain taboo, all the more so this year as the government prepares for a tricky leadership transition.
