To defend the hard-earned democracy. We occupied the Legistlative Yuan of ROC, peacefully and rationally, Since 2014-03-19, tens of thousands citizens have joined us. Taiwan needs your attention and support. Today, we ask you to join us, in support of basic democratic values.
This is what happening now in Taiwan, my country.
The government secretly signed the trade pact with China without transparent process and open discussion. The pact was rushed thorough the Legislature in 30 sec.on 3/17. The act infuriated the public and brought about the “Occupation of the Legislative Yuan” by students and all the demonstrations from 3/17 night. There was another wave of demonstration after the disappointed response by the ruling party and our president on 3/24. The government, unbelievably, sent riot police and water cannons to removed all the peaceful and rational protesters even the medical team and media. People injured (some seriously) and the government refuse to admit their mistake neither in the lack of transparency and responsiveness to the people’s concerns or the brutal crackdown.
The fight for democracy is still ongoing.
