What's in changing a name? Taiwan Journal Vol. XXVI No. 19 May 15, 2009 "...while name Kaohsiung is technically the Mandarin pronunciation of the Japanese written version of a Holo Taiwanese rendition of an old aboriginal name..." Kaohsiung eventually surpassed Tainan to become the second largest city of Taiwan in the late 1970s and Kaohsiung City was upgraded from a provincial city to special municipality (Special municipality of Taiwan) on July 1, 1979, by the Executive Yuan, which approved this proposal on November 19, 1979. The Kaohsiung Incident, where the government suppressed a commemoration of International Human Rights Day, occurred on December 10, 1979. Since then Kaohsiung gradually grew into a political center of the Pan-Green (DPP (Democratic Progressive Party)) population of Taiwan, in opposition to Taipei where the majority population are Kuomintang supporters. On December 25, 2010, Kaohsiung City merged with Kaohsiung County to form a larger special municipality (Special municipality (Taiwan)) with Lingya District and Fongshan District becoming the capital city, ending the administration of Kaohsiung County. 2014 gas explosions Commons:Category:Kaohsiung Wikipedia:Kaohsiung Dmoz:Regional Asia Taiwan Localities Kaohsiung City
