At a time when people overseas were not yet strongly involved in aid work, overseas Taiwanese were on the forefront of making the human rights in Taiwan public. They organized groups, published periodicals, arranged activities, held demonstrations and sit-ins, and canvassed congressmen, influencing human rights organizations, academia, political parties, and even governments. But the overseas Taiwanese who challenged the KMT government were subject to surveillance or even kidnapping by overseas operatives. The Liu Wen-ching case is an example of this.
