Forgetting the history behind why the “free Chinese” fled to a tiny island and the atrocities of the Mao Regime, the Cultural Revolution, the millions of dead countrymen over the years, Taiwanese Opposition PFP chairman James CY Soong said this today on one of his “Reconciliation Tour” stops on the mainland:
The People First Party (PFP), Taiwan’s second largest opposition party, will never sway on its stance of opposing “Taiwan Independence,” sticking to the “1992 Consensus” and upholding peace across the Taiwan Straits, visiting PFP chairman James CY Soong said in Xi’an, Shaanxi Province Thursday afternoon.
In a brief but passionate speech delivered upon his arrival at this capital of northwest China’s Shaanxi Province, Soong said the PFP delegation would strive to “build a bridge of mutual trust” across the Straits.

Although many Taiwanese have expressed the hope for early “three direct links” before his departure for the mainland, Soong said the most important thing was to have the people on both sides to share the same feeling.
“If you share the same feeling, you share everything,” he said…
…”The PFP delegation is here to build a bridge of mutual trust, mutual understanding and cooperation between Taiwan and the mainland,” he said.
Build that bridge!
