Protesters occupy Taiwan legislature
The darkest day in Taiwan: riot polices attack unarmed protesters
March 24 2014, Taiwan government ordered riot polices to expel protesters occupying executive yuan. Protesters were unarmed and not fought back to these riot polices.
In fact, these protesters just sit-in inside of executive yuan to against autocratic way trying to pass the trade agreement with China.
The action of protesters is illegal based on the law of Taiwan. However, these actions were forced by the government continuing ignoring the demand that the government should legislate supervising laws before signing any treaty with China. Actually, we don't have any legal source to supervise the procedures of signing any treaty.
Most importantly, these protesters are not terrorists. They are mostly students without any weapons. Unfortunately, these polices violently attacked weakest part of human body, like head which could be deadly.
We severely condemn the violence and hope catching more international attention to our democracy crisis.
