Robin Winkler Born 1954 Nationality  United States (1954-2003)  Republic of China (2003- ) Other names 文魯彬 Occupation Lawyer Known for Environmental activism Political party Green Party of Taiwan Robin Winkler (traditional Chinese: 文魯彬; pinyin: Wén Lǔbīn; born 1954) is a naturalized Taiwanese, a lawyer (US) and environmental activist. Winkler has been a frequent front-line campaigner on green issues in Taiwan, having founded the legal environmental defence organisation Wild at Heart and spoken out on many causes of environmental concern in Taiwan. In 2003, Winkler renounced his US nationality and acquired Republic of China (Taiwanese) citizenship.[1] In February 2009, Winkler was considered for election to the Legislative Yuan seat previously held by Diane Lee, representing the Green Party of Taiwan.[2] In the end, however Winkler was not able to stand, due to limitations in law. Instead, Calvin Wen (溫炳原), a former Secretary-General of the Party, stood in the by-election instead.[3] By the law on elections and recall of the Republic of China, naturalized citizens can only stand for elections after 10 years of obtaining their citizenship. Winkler considers this requirement to be unconstitutional and has pursued the case through petition and an administrative lawsuit, the latter in an attempt to obtain a constitutional interpretation.[4] References ^ "Robin Winkler, Green Crusader".
