Pro China-unification leader falls into his own coffin in protest cock-up

The leader of the extremist minority party – the China Unification Promotion Party (CUPP) – became a laughingstock when a protest stunt backfired and he fell into a coffin today, Tuesday, February 26.

Chang An-lo, also known as “the White Wolf,” took umbrage at comments made by Premier Su Tseng-chang (蘇貞昌)  the other day, after Su said that he would fight against China with just a broom, if that was all that was left.

“You would pay a price if you want to annex Taiwan,” the Premier said, adding that he is adamantly against kowtowing to Beijing.

The premier’s statements were a response to questions by a KMT member after Chinese nationalist KMT chairman Wu Den-yih (吳敦義) said February 14 that he would seek a peace treaty with China if his party wins next year’s presidential election.

Incensed by Premier Su’s comments about fighting China, Chang accused the DPP of provoking China at the risk of spilling blood of Taiwanese.

“Do Su and the other DPP leaders have children in the military?” Chang asked. “I am willing to give my life for unification,” he added.

Chang spluttered that the pro-Taiwan independence people should have their own coffins prepared, and quickly organized a protest for today, without applying for a permit for the rally.

At around 10:30am, Chang with a group of his followers turned up in front of the Legislative Yuan carrying his own coffin on the back of a small truck.

Police met the group and attempted to prevent them from unloading the coffin as the protesters did not have the required permits. However, Chang and another CUPP member attempted to unload the coffin anyway, causing it to fall onto the ground with the lid falling open.

As CUPP members quickly attempted to right the coffin and close the lid, Chang tried to alight from the truck bed to protect his precious coffin, but in his haste, tripped over the side-gate, falling head first into the casket.

Chang’s followers managed to grab him before he completely fell in, and as they helped him to his feet, the stunned Chang cried, “My coffin…”
