Recent tensions between China and India on their border have prompted India to adopt tougher policies against Chinese tech companies and consumer software. To balance China’s growing power in Asia, some Indian analysts are also calling for a closer relationship with Taiwan, who has been a victim of China’s oppression in international society. There is evidence to suggest that a tactical alliance, dubbed the #MilkteaAlliance, has formed among civil societies in many countries including Taiwan, Hong Kong, India, and Thailand. In early May, the US Department of State initiated the #TweetforTaiwan campaign to support Taiwan’s participation in the World Health Assembly (WHA). Within days, the campaign gained momentum as officials from the U.S. Mission to the UN and various congressional members voiced their support. Aside from the strong support of US policymakers there is evidence that the movement has also won support in other parts of the world.
