    Protesters occupy Taiwan legislature

    Outstanding Quality of the Protesters

    I am not suggesting that the action of barricading the Legislative Yuan is the best and most democratic way of behaving. But I do want to suggest that everyone is acting and behaving their best. One can certainly witness the quality and the strong organization of this protest.
    If you go to the scene yourself, you'll see that everything is different from what the news are reporting. Everyone is very well behaved. It's quite amazing how this was all organized by students. There are people passing out water and food, people picking up trash, and people sitting in perfect rows. And most astonishing of all, these are all students. University professors have also came on stage to give all these students civic lessons, which was a brilliant opportunity and idea. Lots of teachers and professors encouraged students to come. Lawyers are coming out to stand and defend the students involved.
