    Protesters occupy Taiwan legislature

    What I, an undergraduate in Taiwan, think about the demonstration

    Having read articles about the Cross-Strait Agreement on Trade in Services, I truly considered that a rational person SHOULD take all kinds of perspective into account, since words consist of individual colors. Even Dr. Zheng, an economics professor having shared her opinions recently, speaks for her own view, but not the definite truth.
    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!
