#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。
