Police begin to disperse protesters at Executive Yuan

Taipei, March 24 (CNA) Police began moving just past midnight Monday to disperse the protesters who broke into the Executive Yuan compound the previous evening to show opposition to the services trade pact with China.

Officers mobilized by the National Police Agency began pushing forward slowly in full riot gear, with protesters trying to push back. As of midnight, over 20 people had been arrested in the act of committing a crime, police said.

Many protesters lay on the ground with arms interlocked to slow the advance. They were shouting slogans, including "Send back the service trade pact!"

Police urged protesters to stand down even as they continued their advance and forcibly removed those people lying on the ground. Truck-mounted water cannons were on standby.

Hundreds of protesters stormed into the compound around 7:30 p.m. Many of them had originally been part of the occupation of the Legislative Yuan, some 200 meters away, which began March 18.

Some 60 protesters who broke into the three-story main office building were detained for questioning, said Cabinet spokesman Sun Lih-chyun. The building was believed to be mostly cleared of protesters before midnight.

Premier Jiang Yi-huah made the order late Sunday for police to evict protesters, condemning their acts as "illegal and violent."

He said he was saddened by protests that went out of control, a spokesman said.

President Ma Ying-jeou also condemned the violence and expressed support for Jiang's actions.

Su Tseng-chang, chairman of the main opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), and Tsai Ing-wen, a former DPP chief, went to the scene and asked the police not to use force against the students.

Let's wait and see the next move of that great grand croc's, DPP green croc's and of course the two magnificent duos "Merchant of Dead in Beijing Tiananmen Square" will do under the payroll of the DPP GREEN CROC'S and ggc.

REMEMBER FOLKS...

_Before.... Wang Dan had received from CSB 400K $$$$.

_Present...Wang Dan and his assistant Wu'er kaisi have set foot and enter our Legislative Yuan Assembly Hall, cheering to those drinking beer drunkard students whose brain-box were born outside of their head.

Now analyze and ask ourselves.
_WHY those green croc's that hated the mainlander so much but show
WELCOME with LOVE accorded to mainlander Wang Dan and Wu'er kaisi to enter our .Legislative Yuan Assembly Hall without throwing a single shoe? or egg?

To those parents, advice your son and daughter not to being use by the DPP green croc's and the duo Merchant of Dead Wang Dan and Wu'er kaisi as their pawn, and don't followed their own student activist leader. They are all same rotten bananas like WD and WK.

_Better follow the Majority Will.

Let’s pray and hope no big incident will happen like 228 and 319 in the next few months. That is what the green croc's hope for....

What does this say about so called Democracy wherein riot police forcibly remove a nation's youth from the public offices of the nation? What does it say about the state of Democracy, that so many people, students in particular have become so exasperated as to feel they have no other recourse left but to occupy the offices of those whose job it is to represent the people?

Here's something to consider. Representative Democracy is not Democracy of the people by the people for the people. It is Democracy of the Money by the Money for the Money.
