I recently sent this to the ECCT in Taipei
"Given the recent interest in this story, I would hope that the European Chamber of Commerce in Taipei supports
the embargo on arms sales to Taiwan.
As a citizen of the European community who currently lives in Taiwan, I can’t stress enough how important this
embargo is for the development of democracy and stability on the island.
The sale of advanced weapons by any member of the EC would undermine this situation, and possibly allow
the current tension in the Straits to develop into a full blown conflict or war.
I would be delighted to hear your organisations reaction to this turn of events."
Given that the proposal has now been set back, all Europeans in Taiwan need to make their views on this issue know… More weapons sales can’t be good…
Please email the firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know your opposition to the lifting of the embargo.
If we act now, this set back for the lifting of the embargo can be driven home to our leaders. Selling arms to China is BAD…
