President Chen Shui-bian of ROC Taiwan

The National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall was officially opened on April 5, 1980 on the 5th anniversary of Late President Chiang Kai-shek of the Republic of China's death. He was a commendable leader who championed democracy in the face of Communist China.

The Memorial Hall in Taipei has been designated a historical/cultural site by the Taipei City government. Unfortunately, under current Taiwan independence leaning Chen Shui-bian, the central government has illegally moved to try to rename and even destroy CKS Hall.

The CKS Hall law has simply been "scrapped" which is illegal according to the Constitution. Chen Shui-bian has recently moved to white wash history, removing all instances of China and Chiang himself. He does not recognize the history and Chiang's great contributions to the nation that Chen is now the President.

We, the undersigned, call on the Republic of China (Taiwan) government of President Chen Shui-bian to preserve and protect the existing Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall in Taipei.

We do not want any unilateral changes to the status quo. We believe in the preservation of this protected treasure of Taiwan.

We also wish that Chen should promote the people's welfare as opposed to his own ideaology, which harms the nation as a whole.
