    Protesters occupy Taiwan legislature

    We are just citizens fighting for democracy!

     
    We are not mobs. We are just citizens fighting for democracy, defending the values hold dear! The pact of cross-straight trade service has been put into the plenary session by the KMT unilaterally without any deliberation. Hundreds of thousands of people have gathered peacefully sitting outside the Legislative Yuan (the congress of Taiwan) while others have taken occupation of interior of the Legislative Yuan since last night.
    The government had deployed lots of police (estimated around 600) to the Legislative Yuan. The people outside are shouting for evacuating the police, “the congress is a sanctuary for democracy, for the people, not for the police.” Meanwhile the government has turned off the air-conditioning inside the building since three hours ago, making the occupants suffocating.
