A group of people from the Hong Kong and Kowloon Trades Union Council protest in Hong Kong against Taiwan leader Chen Shui-bian's decision to abolish the island's policy-making body on unification with the Chinese mainland and its 15-year-old guidelines Monday February 27, 2006. Chen announced the decision to terminate the "national unification council" and the "national unification guidelines" after a one-hour meeting with Taiwan's top security agency, the "national security council."  The protesters criticized Chen for betraying his 2000 pledge that he would not seek to abolish the council, and said it would be dangerous for Chen to move ahead on his plan, which could change cross-Straits relations fundamentally.
