1. How does one know if the 'volunteer work' you're involved in is illegal?
2. Is this a Taidong thing? Afterall. the place isn't the most progressive part of Taiwan?
3. Has anyone ever been deported for this in Taipei or Kaohsiung (Gaoxiong)? Stuff like this goes on ALL THE TIME here, and I've never heard of any problems.
4. Richard states that there's pretty much nothing that can be done about this law. While I believe his judgment to be impeccable, is there another interpretation of the situation?

Taidong and Hualian have had foreigner-unfriendly officialdom as long as I've been in Taiwan (15 years), quite in contrast with the local citizens. A double shame when the foreign tourist would find the east coast the most attractive side of the island. To bad the cops over there make it so clear you're not welcome.
What is the legal basis for volunteer work being illegal? I don't see anything in the Employent Services Law.
Look at all the foreigners who play music in Taipei. No problems. This entire thing appears to be a personal vendetta in the outback.
