Protesters occupy Taiwan legislature
Student Blood Shed by President Ma's Authorization
Under command of general-director of National Police Agency Wang Zhuo Juin, the force was ordered to clear out crowds at the Executive Yuan with “FULL FORCE”. Sixty-eight people were reported injured by the carryout authorized by PM Jiang and President Ma at 23:00 March 23. High pressure water cannons were fired against unarmed students even when they were simply lying on the ground.
The student leader Yong Wei, grand son of a couple killed by the authority during 228 tragedy, stated his intention was to relief the Parliament crew from high pressure by diverting the crowd to the Executive Yuan. The leader at scene was later under arrest when campus was cleared out by 05:29.
Almost around the same time, a report came out that the President called for an “emergency” meeting scheduled at 8:45 to discuss the aftermath. The two heads called for are VP and PM – both from the administrative branch in seek for solution spurred from the Parliament.
However, the students do not appear to be the only target on the administrations radar. A hacker group “g0v.tw” provided backbone IT support since the beginning of the operation, and their website serving as the main portal for volunteers and activists suffered from outage while the administration’s force troop engaged bloody suppression. The mysterious crack into the system went so far as automatically deleting data from documents that were collaboration of all volunteers from around the world.
Another side of the story also developed rapidly as the troops imposing forces upon unarmed students. National Taiwan University Student Union issued a statement at midnight to call for a full scale walk out to which by 02:50 committed by over 20 unions from other schools. At same time, overboard students in Europe, Russia, Japan and U.S., an alliance of 9,000 Taiwanese, pledged full support for local students and to vastly expand the global rally schedule on March 30.
