Video of Taiwan youth criticizing 'pro-independence' advocates goes viral | Updated: 2017-09-12 20:31

A video in which a young man in Taiwan reprimands "pro-independence" advocates as garbage in history became an internet sensation and received strong support from netizens.

Several weeks ago, when the Curriculum Review Conference was reviewing the 12-year compulsory education curriculum for 2019, the high school panel proposed reducing the percentage of writings in classical Chinese in high school Chinese textbooks to below 30 percent from the current 45-55 percent.

The move stirred heated discussions in Taiwan. Many people questioned it as politics outmatching education.

In the video, the young man said that the conference is neither qualified or entitled to modify the curriculum. Besides, the so-called Taiwan writers who support the proposal are mainly politicians.

The man pointed out that the three major propositions they made, in a simple way, is a reference "to pursue the rebuilt country of Taiwan", which is basically the independence of Taiwan.

The conference voted on Saturday to maintain the original percentage.
