 Everything you always wanted to know about Taiwan
The island of Taiwan, along with the Pescadores Islands, is administered as part of the Province of Taiwan by the government of the Republic of China (ROC), which was the former government of mainland China before its 1949 defeat by the Communist Party of China.

Geography The island of Taiwan lies some 200 km off the southeastern coast of Mainland China across the Taiwan Strait, with the East China Sea to the north, the Philippine Sea to the east, the Luzon Strait directly to the south and the South China Sea to the southwest.

As a result, Taiwanese politics appeared headed for a period of instability that is likely to overshadow relations with China and perhaps brake Chen's attempts to push the self-ruled island toward formal independence.

But it was Article 8 of the law, which states that China "shall employ non-peaceful means" if Taiwan moves toward formal independence, that captured the attention of residents here and appeared to bridge deep political divisions in Taiwan.
Meanwhile, members of the Taiwan Solidarity Union, a party that favors independence for the island, burned a Chinese flag in a protest outside the legislative building and called on Chen's government to stop all communications and exchanges with the Chinese government.

Viewing the current situation of administrative crisis caused by the political divisions in Taiwan, we believe that Taiwan will face increasing difficulties in the future.
The ruling party must recognize the fact that it does not exercise political authority over the mainland; and must very soon announce the end of "The Period of Communist Rebellion", rescind the "Temporary Provisions Effective During the Period of Communist Rebellion" and cease using the Constitution of the Republic of China.
We earnestly hope that with independent self-rule, the relationship between Taiwan and China can be to the mutual advantage of both; that in foreign affairs there be mutual recognition, and that with trust there will be benefits for each so that both may exist and prosper side by side.
