Shu Chin-chiang (蘇進強; born April 5, 1953- ) is a Taiwanese novelist and politician. His pen name is "Lu Jiang" (履彊). As a politician, he strongly supports the cause of Taiwan independence. In 2001 he began to serve as the secretary of Taiwan Solidarity Union and in 2005 he was elevated to the party chairperson. In 2006 after a poor election performance of the party he resigned the chairmanship.

Controversy

In April 2005, Shu visited the controversial Yasukuni Shrine in Japan, incurring much criticism in Taiwan, as the shrine has posts for World War II war criminals.
