    On site Medics Report:

    The police have gotten into a mad state, lawyers tell us that the police have started to use police batons and shields quite frequently, and [they] are afraid that more injuries will arise, that is why medics are let into the executive yuan. The are 8 doctors and 5 nurse who were originally scheduled to go into the building through the back door but it was locked. Doctors and lawyers couldn’t get in, despite of the gowns they’re wearing. Volunteer medics set up a medical station on the left side of Chung Shan South Road. Polices hit [the protesters] and cause damage to the head and broken bones in the hand because students instinctively raised their arms to defend themselves against the blows. [The blows] also caused tears and swells [in arm muscles] and the medics treated the wounds instantly. The lawyers will file a lawsuit [against the police].

    The police went in through the door on Chung Shan South Road, pushed through the crowds to get back to the courtyard and started to hose down the protestors using water tanks. [Student leaders and student groups] taught the protestors to squat on the floor back to back to decrease the damage that is caused by the water sprays. After the first wave of hosing, there are only 20~30 students left. Anti-riot police and shield police told them to go away, but after the spraying, the police swarmed in to make the students go away.

    The medics stayed in their place to keep on treating injured people. They were permitted by a policewoman [to treat the injured] but was then ordered by a policeman in the back to retreat and stay away and leave. The police wanted to keep on clearing the site and the medics thought it was dangerous and wanted to stay on to receive and treat the injured. Policemen told the medics in an offensive tone that everyone had to leave the site, if they don’t they will handcuff them right on the spot. The medics still refused to leave. Then the second wave of the hosing started, after some consideration, the leader of the medical team decided that they should not intervene and was forced to leave the site, humiliated.

    The policemen clapped their hands in victory, the doctors shouted back “what about the injured?”. No one cared about the needs of the injured. The police only forced the medical team to leave the site.

    Original Post from On site Doctors and Nurses:


    醫療團發言:

    警察到了喪心病狂的地步,因為律師團表示,大量使用警棍跟警盾,擔心推進會造成更多受傷,讓醫療團進駐,共有八位醫生、五位護理師,本來要從後門進入,後門已經被封鎖,醫師跟律師穿袍也無法進入,醫療團在中山南左翼設了醫護室,警棍擊打後鬧震盪,手指骨折,學生習慣性用手臂阻擋警棍,造成撕裂傷、腫脹,醫療團有快速處理。律師團共同提出告訴。

    警察從中山北路側門進入,擠回廣場後,下令噴水,糾察跟場地主持人有教導大家背對、蹲下,把噴水傷害降到最低,但還是有很多傷患送進來,許多學生脆弱皮膚受傷,面部被噴傷、紅腫。第一波噴水之後,側翼剩餘的20~30學生,鎮暴部隊跟警盾警察叫他們自己走,噴水過後、鎮暴警察推進,將學生清走。

    醫療團繼續在原地服務,原本也獲得帶隊女警同意,但後面另一名帶隊男警命令一切醫療團隊跟律師團隊撤退、送出去,警方還要進行衝突跟掃蕩,醫療團認為會有危險,要求保留給醫療團一個空間,警方非常惡劣地表示所有人員都要撤出,否則就當場上手銬,醫生在不退,就是第二波噴水地區,醫療團長考慮醫師們不該涉險,驅趕之下,很屈辱地離開行政院。

     

    警方拍手慶祝他們的勝利,醫師回吼傷患怎麼辦,沒有人在乎他們的需求,把醫療團趕出去。
