1966–88In 1966 historian and journalist Chang Hua-min (?1926–) was sentenced to eight years' imprisonment on charges of making procommunist propaganda. Upon his release in 1974, he continued to write political essays, mostly banned, and actively supported an opposition candidate during the December 1978 election campaign. In September 1979 he was arrested on suspicion of sedition in connection with his writings, held incommunicado for at least two months, and tried in camera. He was sentenced by a military court to ten years' imprisonment in January 1980, again for sedition and alleged pro-communist propaganda. In April 1988 he was released during an amnesty commemorating President Chiang Ching-kuo's January 1988 death.
1966–76In January 1966 the security agency Taiwan Garrison Command banned the sociohistorical study Sun Yat-sen and the Westernization of Medicine in China published by satirist and historian Lee Ao (Li Ao) (1935–). It also revoked the license of the monthly magazine Wen Hsing, which he edited. In July six other books of Lee's were banned, including Monologues against Tradition (1963) and History and Portraits (1963). In 1970 he was placed under house arrest after the escape from Taiwan of Peng Ming-min, the leader of the Taiwanese Independence Movement. On 23 February 1971, he was arrested for a few hours after rumors of a demonstration to be held on 28 February in commemoration of the 1947 uprising (this uprising against the rule of Nationalist Chinese Governor-General Chen Yi was crushed). In March he was rearrested and held for months
