November 12th, about twenty unions allied to launch a demonstration in front of the Council of Labor Affairs. Representing labors, farmers, and fishermen, they demand Taiwan president Chen Shui-bien stand down and the DDP government change their labor policy right away.
They said that most people raged at the first family’s pocketing NT$14,800,408 from the “state affairs fund” through receipts not used for state affairs, however, few people were aware of the expenditure on financial and economic policy. In the past six years, DDP government has sold a lot of state-run business to big corporations with very low prices, which included Chunghwa Telecom Corp, the nation's biggest telecom operator, and Taiwan Sugar Corp. What’s more, about one hundred and fifty public works in Taiwan were left unused, wasting more than forty billion dollars. In many cases, building contractors can benefit from the works because they conspired with local government.
