2 Min Read.TAIPEI – Thousands of people took to Taipei’s streets on Sunday for the annual “Autumn Struggle” protest march organised by labour groups, with much of the anger focused on the government’s decision to ease restrictions on imports of U.S. pork.
Taiwan’s main opposition party, the Kuomintang, rallied its supporters to join the march for the first time, having mounted an increasingly strident campaign against the pork decision, which it says threatens food safety.
The KMT is also trying to organise a referendum on the U.S. pork imports.
