    Protesters shout down president when he declines to oppose petrochemical project (2011/04/03)

    It was a rude welcome for Ma Ying-jeou in Changhua County on Sunday. The president was there to attend a protest against a planned Kuokuang Petrochemical Technology Company project. But when he declined to sign a letter promising that he would oppose the project, the protesters shouted for him to leave the stage. In contrast, two opposition party presidential candidates Ma could face off against in the 2012 election both attended the protest and signed the letter.

    Students opposed to the Kuokuang Petrochemical project were prepared. As soon as they saw Ma Ying-jeou, they shouted out. Then, when Ma took the stage, members of the Changhua Medical Alliance asked the president to sign a letter pledging his opposition to the project.

    When I asked him to sign it, the president said he hadn’t made any promises. At yesterday’s bridge-building meeting I clearly told him he first needs to oppose the project. We’ve already yielded by letting him take the stage, says alliance member Lin Shi-hsian.

    When Ma declined to sign the letter, shouts calling for him to sign the letter turned to shouts calling on him to leave.

    This kind of person can’t be trusted. We don’t need him or want to hear him speak, so we asked him to get off the stage, says Lin.

    I asked the Interior Ministry to finish the Changhua wetlands evaluation as soon as possible. The reason I came here today is to hear everyone’s opinions. Until I’ve done this, I won’t change my mind and leave, says Ma.

    Ma wouldn’t sign the letter, unlike DPP presidential candidates Su Tseng-chang and Tsai Ing-wen. They were present and both signed.

    I understand. President Ma has to choose between industrial needs and environmental protection. This is something that the country’s leader needs to face, says Tsai.

    After signing the letter, Su and Tsai separately visited the Changhua wetlands.
