I was a member in 1970's At that time the goal was to help PRC gain recognition. I was even a delegate to the National meeting in 1979. The goals of the Association were good as there other "China" on Taiwan was a brutal dictatorship blocking recognition of the people in the mainland and their struggle. Now Taiwan is a free state and deserves recognition and respect as a free State. The bloody history of many PRC founding members are known and the PRC is embroiled in controversy about human rights violations and acts against ethnic minorities. These are all well documented. The Association should reflect these changes in the landscape otherwise just be a propaganda tool of the CCP.
