Pig guts and fists fly in Taiwan

Taiwan’s opposition MPs brought buckets full of pig intestines to parliament and threw them at Premier Su Tseng-chang. They opposed a decision to ease pork imports from the US. This meat may contain ractopamine, an additive that is banned amongst others in Taiwan and the EU. “We’re very sorry to throw pig’s internal organs in parliament, but this is to highlight the pork issue,” an opposition lawmaker told reporters according to AFP.
