    Second Night of the Occupation


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     George Chang is not a protester himself, but since protesters stormed the Legislative Yuan in Taipei on March 18, he has been going to the site to show his support. Yesterday, he said, people from different parts of Taiwan were arriving at the Legislative Yuan to show solidarity with the protesters. "The main source of protesters are university students, but we can also find high school students and teachers, families, and other individuals arriving at the Legislative Yuan," he said.

    Chang told us that professors from National Taiwan University and other universities in the area were encouraging their students to to go to the site. "These lecturers are encouraging their students to come here and are even moving their classes from the campus to the Legislative Yuan," he said.

    Protesters continue to occupy the building, and people have started to gather outside of it at three different points. "People gather here not only to show their opinion about the trade agreement, but also to protect the people inside the chamber, preventing the police to march in and take them out," he said.

    This is the second day of the occupation of the Legislative Yuan in Taiwan. People all over the island have been gathering around the streets around the Legislative Yuan to support the people in the chamber, making the number of people growing to more than two times the number of last night.
    At Jinan Rd., people from all sides have been giving speeches, professors are encouraging students to come to the occupation and giving lectures on site. Legal teams are assembled to help anybody who is arrested on the streets and in the chamber of the Legislative Yuan. Although with this amount of people, a peaceful protest still carries on without any sign of violence from the people.
