The pronunciation of “E-ling” is similar to “Erh-lin”) Ahem We must talk about Erhlin Peasants Movements In 1895, right after Taiwan was ceded to Japan according to the Treaty of Shimonoseki Japan was right on the move of enforcing the policy of “Industry for Japan, Agriculture for Taiwan” Trying to turn Taiwan into a sweet sugar kingdom Japan therefore established various policies that frowned the sugarcane farmers Like the price of sugarcane was dominated by the sugar factory or the weighing of sugarcane was frequently being falsely reported The false reporting situation was as ridiculous as three man weighed only 48kg The farmers even had to pay the factory to collect their sugarcanes Although the policies were suppressing the farmers all that farmers could do were protesting in vain towards the Japanese government or being Japan’s dead meat When peasants stood up against the government and enterprises Taiwanese intellectuals also stood up Lee Yin-chang, who went back home to be a doctor in Erhlin was also a member of Taiwanese Cultural Association Facing the difficult situation of sugarcane farmers being ripped off Sir Lee prescribed the right medicine to the problem holding “Village Talks” to urge farmers to stand up, stand up! He even founded the first farmers organization in Taiwan in 1925, “Erhlin Peasants Union” representing the large numbers of sugarcane farmers to fight for their rights against the “Lin Ben Yuan Sugar Kabushiki Kaisha(KK) ” ( Kabushiki Kaisha(KK), which means Corporation in Japanese.) With strong promotion of the intellectuals ( Kabushiki Kaisha(KK), which means Corporation in Japanese.) With strong promotion of the intellectuals the sugarcane farmers gradually noticed when their rights are being violated, they should stand up! Stand up! And fight! Therefore the seed of rebellion planted in the farmers’ hearts, eventually blossomed However, even with the assistance of the intellectuals, KK with government at their backs, they could ignore all requests from the farmers “Yah,” “Okay,” “LOL,” or read without reply After playing so many times of I petition and you play dumb with the KK it was finally the harvest season, hurray Farmers decided to toughen up, and refused the collection of the KK before sugarcane price were officially announced But the KK also insisted on collecting, even brought the police with them Seeing that the police were protecting the KK the display of the loving relationship between government and KK made sugarcane farmers so mad that they held sugarcane and hoes to fight back The police also pulled out their swords and warning signs This then pissed the farmers off Both sides confronting each other with sugarcanes flying around This was the first Peasants Movement in Taiwan’s history, “Erhlin Peasants Incident” After the incident, Japanese government became furious and began to play a game-of-tag Not only Lee Yin-chang, who was viewed as the leader, was taken into custody but hundreds of members of the Peasants Union and farmers who were involved were also caught However Erhlin Peasants Incident was like the first firecrackers that popped on New Years day many other peasants organizations popped out afterwards After 1927, the island-wide Taiwan Peasants Union popped out it had more than 20 thousand members Fantabulous! After the chatty talk Erhlin Peasants Incident seemed to pioneered the road of revolution for Taiwanese farmers they noticed how important it was to protect their own rights Intellectuals carried the passion of social reform and hoping the farmers could stand up against the evil with them But if unfortunately they fail and starve Aren’t farmers the biggest loser? From the aspects of farmers they face the situation of not knowing which side to choose One is the intellectual, but the epiphany they brought might starve them The other is the KK, rude and dominant, but bought their products and gave salaries How they should make the choice might be a question that others never thought about O~K the story ends here today See ya!
