    Protesters occupy Taiwan legislature

    The Darkest Day of Taiwan Democracy

     
    The Taiwan authority asserted power over the students and protesters by the terroristic means in March 24, 2014. These students and protesters, who thrust themselves out to protest against cross-strait pact between China and Taiwan, just want to retrieve the civil rights which should belong to them.

    For the ruling party's push for the trade pact with China by force and illegal way, and ignoring 70% opposites from Taiwan people, several tens of thousands of students and protesters occupied Legislature Yuan and neighboring streets, longing for the goodwill response from the government. On these streets, citizens had their speech with fervor and confidence, listened to other opinions quietly and calmly. However, no listening, no direct response from the government.

    Some students turned to occupy Executive Yuan on March 23 evening, and declared their demands as a peaceful protest. Nevertheless, the government defamed protestors as rioters and sent anti-riot police force equipped with shields and rods to the unarmed protesters! Students and protesters are injured in the bloody eviction.

    It is the darkest day of Taiwan democracy. The ruling authority’ violence and disregard of public opinions prove its dictatorship.
