The Taiwanese Communist Party (Chinese: 臺灣共產黨 or 台灣共產黨; Japanese: 台湾共産党) was a revolutionary organization active in Japan-ruled Taiwan. Like the contemporary Taiwanese People's Party, its existence was short, a mere three years, yet its politics and activities were influential in shaping Taiwan's anti-colonial enterprise. For a brief time after World War II individual members continued to play a role in anti-Kuomintang activities, most notably in the aftermath of the 228 Incident in 1947.
