    Protesters occupy Taiwan legislature

    Taiwan's Democracy

    Last midnight at around 5:30 am in Taiwan, the fist drop of blood has been seen within the six days of protest. Most of the protestants are college students, professors, and young adults. They are believed to be the future leader of the country. Last night, a group of students broke in to the executive hall (was led by a spy from the government); therefore, the polices had the excuse to start clearing out the protest forcefully. This is all played by the government. The polices had gone insane and beat the innocents protestants to death. There were close to 100 college students injured while the rest are still trying to fight for their rights by the meditation protest. Two days before, these protestants were chanting to the police, "put down your uniforms, be apart of us", "Thank you for your hard work", and different ways to appreciate the police man's hard work. However, the government has tried to evoke the relationship and forced the civilians and the police to hurt each others. These students used the most peaceful way to fight for their human rights and was treated as uneducated mobs. The police used water truck and soak up each one of the protestants, and spray them with the pepper spray. All the protestants are laying on the ground, linking their arms and trying to hold on to their neighbor so they wont get toll away and beat up. They deserve an answer from the leader and support and attention from the outside world. They are making history and they are brave.

    Below is a video of a teacher who got kicked in the face, and beat up by the police but came back to take care of his students.

    His words in brief:
    "I'm a teacher, and my job is to protect my student. I might got beat up, but I'll never give up because my students are still in there. To be able to protect my students, the future leaders of the country, is my duty and it makes me proud."
