    Taiwan Revolution Continues


    Taiwan Revolution continues. Till now, the students have occupied the parliament over 60 hours. More and more students and citizens came from all over Taiwan to offer support to the students in the Legislative Yuan. All surrounding streets are filled with the protests. The weather turns to be colder and is raining. But protesters of coming in and out have stayed overnight for 3 days with food, water, raincoats and sleeping bags supplied by the citizens all over the country, which indicates how citizens are against the secretly signed and illegally approved Pact with China by the Ma Administration. The fury also sparks demonstrations in Taichung, Tainan, Kaohsiung, Hualien, and Taitung to support this democratic movement to get back the basic human rights from the authoritarian Ma Administration. In fact, the currently ruling KMT party, a Chinese Nationalist, is a Chinese government in exile, which has illegally occupied and tortured Taiwan since 1945, the end of WWII.
