Protesters occupy Taiwan legislature
Hundreds of thousands of people fight for democracy in Taiwan
Today, March 30, 2014 Taiwan time, hundreds of thousands of people gathered on streets to show their support for students' protest that started on March 18, 2014 and lasted till now, Taiwan Time.
Student protest first errupted on March 18, 2014 after one representative of the ruling party, without presenting the Cross-Strait Service Trade Agreement to be examined by the representatives of Taiwan's Legislature, illegally announced in 30 seconds at Taiwan's Legislature that the Cross-Strait Service Trade Agreement had been examined.
The government estimated over 110000 civillians turned out today, but others estimated over 500000 civillians jointed the protest.
The student protesters demand for returning the Cross-Strait Service Trade Agreement to China, legislation before signing any cross-strait agreement and democracy for Taiwan.
