I feel like nobody on Tumblr cares about what happened in Taiwan because we are a small, small country.

Even though I’ve been acting chilled and keeping on my blogging stuffs, I still feel a little bit sad and worried that everyone on Tumblr only knows things happening in big countries. I’ve talked about this on my blog only a few times but nobody really pays attention to what I said. Maybe because I don’t have enough followers, maybe because media doesn’t have enough reports about this thing, maybe because nobody has died in this event so people don’t consider it serious. 

You guys probably think governments which are being harsh to their people are scary, but recently I realized governments which ignore their people are scary too. My country, Taiwan, is trying to pass a Cross-Strait Service Trade Agreement with Mainland China. The problem is not about this agreement, the problem is that our people have no idea how this agreement work, who is in charge with this agreement and how many professional estimation has been done before the agreement gets signed. We are afraid, because if this agreement has some problems, our economy might collapse and thousands people might lose their jobs and their families. This agreement is too sloppy to be signed. Our people tried to express our worry but the government didn’t give a shit.

So on March 17th, hundreds of college students broke into the Legislature and occupied the building. It has been 6 days since those students are inside the building. They have no resources and everything is in bad condition. The building is surrounded by bunches of police officers. Even though the government promised they wouldn’t attack those students, we have no idea what would happen if those students keep on occupying the building. The leader of the students, Lin and Chen, declare that their purpose is to fight for everyone’s right in a peaceful way. They want the government to accept their 2 simple requests: disapprove the agreement and make a new law making sure the agreement would be deliberated in a reasonable procedure. But after 6 days, the government still doesn’t pay attention to them and resist all their requests. Our president, Mr. Ma, also refuses to meet the students leaders to listen to their demands. Students inside and outside the Legislature have been irritated by the government’s attitude. The situation has gone wild and there are even some violence stuffs happened despite how hard the leaders are trying to handle all over 30 thousands angry students.

I just want more people to know about this. My government doesn’t listen to their people’s voice. We are angry and hopeless. Most of these people are under 25, they are just a group of college students who don’t want to watch their own country being treated unfairly. They have no bids to fight with our government. They have been constantly fighting for 6 days. Their parents can’t even go into the building to meet their beloved children. They are exhausted and frustrated but they still don’t want to give up. You think college students only know partying and skipping classes? No. These young adults are fighting for their own country like real warriors. I don’t understand why nobody cares about their actions. They are brave and strong and they are probably just in your age. They need more attention. Even though you probably can’t do anything for them, but your attention might help them keep going on. And your attention might help them to make our government fear. Government needs to be feared by their people.

Proteste in Taiwan «Sonnenblumen» 

Taiwans Polizei geht gegen Proteste vor

In Taiwan ist die Polizei am Montag gewaltsam gegen Demonstranten vorgegangen, die aus Protest gegen ein geplantes Handelsabkommen mit China den Regierungssitz besetzten. Die Polizei setzte Wasserwerfer und Schlagstöcke ein, um die Demonstranten auseinander zu treiben. Nach Angaben der Polizei in der Hauptstadt Taipeh waren tausend Beamte im Einsatz.

Dutzende Demonstranten seien festgenommen, 82 verletzt worden, berichteten die Behörden. Auch 17 Polizisten seien verletzt worden.

Am Sonntagabend waren Hunderte Regierungsgegner an der Polizei vorbei in das Gebäude gestürmt. Sie rissen Stacheldraht von Absperrungen herunter und versuchten über Leitern in die oberen Geschosse des Regierungssitzes zu gelangen. Daraufhin kam es zu schweren Zusammenstößen zwischen Demonstranten und Polizisten.

China-Gegner besetzen Taiwans Parlament

Ein Handelsabkommen zwischen Taiwan und China hat heftige Proteste in der taiwanischen Hauptstadt Taipeh ausgelöst. Es soll Unternehmen aus China den Zugang erleichtern, die Demonstranten befürchten einen wachsenden Einfluss der Volksrepublik. Aus Protest haben Hunderte Demonstranten das Parlament besetzt. Vor dem Gebäude in Taipeh versammelten sich Tausende. Die Polizei versuchte am Mittwoch bereits dreimal vergeblich, das Parlament zu räumen. Die Demonstranten fordern ein Treffen mit mit Präsident Ma Ying-jeou.

太陽花学生運動

中国と台湾が互いの市場開放に向けて昨年調印した「サービス貿易協定」の承認を阻止するため、台湾の学生らが18日から立法院(国会)の議場を占拠している問題で、馬英九総統は23日、違法だと批判して速やかな退去を求めた。台北の総統府で記者会見し、学生らに対する立場を初めて表明した。

馬英九総統は23日、この問題で初めて記者会見を開き、「協定によって台湾の競争力は高まる」などと主張し、協定の撤回には応じない考えを強調したうえで、議会の占拠は「違法だ」として、学生との直接対話も拒む姿勢を示しました。

これに対し学生たちは反発を強め、23日夜、新たに数百人が内閣に当たる行政院の建物に突入して警察と激しいもみ合いになりました。

24日未明になっても大勢の大学生や市民が行政院の周辺を包囲して抗議活動を続けたことから、警察が強制排除に乗り出し、台湾の中央通信によりますと、これまでに学生や警察官、合わせて68人がけがをして病院に運ばれました。

Can’t believe this shit is happening in my home country.

Please PLease PLEASE LET THIS BE KNOWN THROUGHOUT THE WORLD THIS IS HAPPENING IN TAIWAN RIGHT NOW MY FRIENDS ARE IN THERE MY CLASSMATE AND MANY MORE 
WE ARE PROTESTING BECAUSE OUR PRESIDENT IS TRYING TO PASS AN AGREEMENT WITH CHINA THAT THREATENS OUR DEMOCRACY

(THE CROWD IS SCREAMING”whY? dON’T HIT PEOPLE!! dON’T HIT HIM/HER)

This is happening in Taiwan. 
Yesterday, Taiwanese government sent out massive police force to evacuate peaceful-protesting students who were simply sitting there, hoping the governments could respond to what they were trying to tell.
And this is the response from authorities. Instead of trying to communicate face-to-face with harmless students, Ma government sent out police force in mid-night to ambush the students. During the conflict, not only did students get beat up, so did doctors who were trying to help out. Oddly, there were thousands of reporters on scene, not one media is reporting how the unarmed students got beat up one by one. There were suppose to be more videos recording the evidence of violence ordered by the authorities (recorded by students on scene), unfortunately, they were somehow removed. Is was a sad day for this island. Why do we need governors when they turn the sword against their helpless daughters and sons?

May the history remember
