"You can't wake up the people who don't want to wake up 裝睡的人叫不醒!"
"Taiwan is not China, ROC goes home 台灣中國, 一邊一國!" Most of the pro Taiwan Independence activists were stubborn, localized, country-like and over middle age, out on the street with their tall flags, labelled caps n shirts, struggle with their numbers n their 2 or 3 unions (公投盟, 908台灣國, 北社...), just like their unidentified mother land_Taiwan.
"Long live to Taiwan Independence 台灣獨立萬歲!" They either want KMT (the ruling party of Taiwan from China) to step down, or they will overthrow the colonial ROC from Taiwan. Even these activists hold the strongest core value of Taiwan independence, they were few, neglected and undesirable by the medias, the politicians and the people of Taiwan_now Republic of China.
#Taiwan Brief History 台灣簡史：
-1895~1945: Japanese colonial period. 日本治台50年。
-1947: KMT (Chinese Nationalist Party) retreated from China civil war to occupy Taiwan & initiated ROC (apart from PROC) with a martial law. Over hundreds of thousands of Taiwanese were tortured, killed or vanished in 4 decades of White Terror (unidentified for Top Classified). 國民黨自中國內戰被推翻後，以中華民國之名撤退/殖民/接管台灣，實行戒嚴專制約半世紀，#二二八 #白色恐怖 時期，被刑求/屠殺/失蹤的民眾難以估計（自數千至數十萬人數因國安理由未能公開）。
-1971: PROC China claimed ROC Taiwan ownership from UN. China regards Taiwan as a rebel region that must be reunited by force if necessary. 聯合國決議一個中國，佔領台灣的中華民國從此喪失國際主權。
-1992: Taiwan & China became "1 country 2 systems" according to PROC-ROC secret agreement. 國民黨開始倡導模稜兩可的 #一中各表 #一國兩治。
-2000: With the election of President Chen Shui-bian from the opposition Democratic Progressive Party, Taiwan changed from One Party Dictatorship into Corporatocracy, as most of the financial & political power still controlled by KMT. 雖有首位民選總統陳水扁，但民進黨並未積極 #轉型正義，而國民黨仍舊掌握大多數資源，台灣由一黨獨裁變成權貴政治。
-2008: Corruption allegations undermined Mr Chen's popularity and contributed to the DPP's loss to a resurgent KMT. 民進黨爆發貪瀆，執政權回歸國民黨。
-2014: #OccupyCongress (0318~0424) by students, activists, NGOs & pro-Taiwan independent groups united to fight the tyranny China Trade Pacts & the systemic corruption of KMT government, turned into the national Sunflower Movement. 以台北社運圈為中心的反服貿運動，在318佔領立法院後壯大為全島響應的太陽花運動。
-2015: New generation start to use citizen power calling for changes, such as the legislative, constitutional and educational reform. There is no turning back for democracy Taiwan. 新生代受到太陽花運動鼓舞, 公民運動與投入政治開始蔚為風潮。
