Protesters occupy Taiwan legislature
What I, an undergraduate in Taiwan, think about the demonstration
It's no doubt that the Cross-Strait Agreement on Trade in Services is to be enacted ; after all, being isolated from the global market is inconceivable as well as intolerable. However, to many's disappointment, the process of passing it is a black-box operation.
Whether one is for or against the object, it does NOT matter at all in this demonstration. We are fighting for the PROCEDURAL JUSTICE, the genuine meaning of democracy, which has been badly ignored by the corrupt government. What's worse, the interference of political parties has even twisted the initial motivation of student's occupation of Legislative Yuan. It turns out that some believes, especially the elders, students are enforced by politicians to implement the whole program.
How ABSURD and pathetic!
Well-informed and concerned about the future of Taiwan ,we students, take actions SPONTANEOUSLY to defend our beloved country from complete devastation, demending the precedure of law enactment be put back on track!
If you are the one identifying yourself with our fury, stand out and show the government yourdissatisfaction with all of us!
