Taiwan: Defending Rights to Protest

taiwanBy I-fan Lin

Following David’s article on “The Phantom of Police State” coming back with Chen Yun-lin (陳雲林)’s visit to Taiwan on 3 of Nov, I have collected some visual materials showing the conflict between the protesters and police with brief translation.

Since Nov 3rd, many protesters wearing pro-Taiwan T-shirt or banners or waving the ROC national flag have been harassed by the police, and some of them were wounded. To the extent that people playing Taiwanese songs (Sunrise records, 上揚唱片) were disrupted with force, and a cup of coffee became all too dangerous.
