China Blasts Taiwan Protests

Sunday, 27 March 2005 12:00 AM

The two sides split in 1949 amid civil war, but China insists that democratically ruled Taiwan is part of its territory. It forbids its diplomatic partners from recognizing Taiwan's government and prevents Taiwan from joining international organizations like the United Nations.

Taiwan's protesters Saturday said they wouldn't be silenced by Beijing. "What do we want from China? Peace," they chanted.

Organizers said one million people took part. Taiwan's opposition Nationalist Party, which is against independence, stayed away.
