In Taiwan, thousands of people have protested against Chinese influence on democracy in the country and pro-Chinese media despite heavy rains. One of the organizers, the left-wing MP Huang Kuo-Chang, called on the state communications authority on Sunday to protect national security and democracy from targeted false reports. He told reporters that the purpose of the demonstration was “to oppose China’s totalitarianism and Chinese influence in the economy, the media and all aspects of our society.”

Especially the media group China Times drew criticism to report Beijing-friendly as their news broadcaster CTi News did not report on the big protest marches in Hong Kong on 9 and 16 June against a controversial extradition law, said Holger Chen, another organizer, a bodybuilder, a YouTube celebrity in Taiwan.

China views Taiwan as part of its territory and renegade province. The dispute over Taiwan’s status stems from the civil war in China, when Kuomintang nationalists fled to Taiwan after their defeat by the Communists Maos in 1949. The government in Beijing regularly threatens to force a “reunification”.
