Dozens hospitalized as police remove protesters from Executuve Yuan

Taipei, March 24 (CNA) Three dozen people received medical help at three hospitals near the Executive Yuan, where the police continued to disperse demonstrators in the early hours of Monday morning.

The injured and those feeling sick who were sent to National Taiwan University Hospital and two area hospitals overnight include students, other protesters and police officers.

A reporter had to undergo surgery for a broken finger.

Two of the 10 people hospitalized at Taipei City Hospital Zhongxing Branch were discharged after treatment, as were four of six sent to Mackay Memorial Hospital.

The police began around midnight to disperse the crowd that had gathered outside the Executive Yuan compound to protest an agreement Taiwan signed with China last June on the liberalization of the service trade industry.

The agreement has yet to take effect pending a review by Taiwan's legislature.

No one should show their disapproval of the government by using force and intrusion into the administration office. As a foreigner looking at the action taken by the students, that is unacceptable n disconsolate. In a Democratic society, you have a choice to vote the present administration out in the next election. "Student should look at the latest world university ranking, Where is Taiwan" Do you guys feel shameful, your present action will not help.

Whether students or not, appropriate charges should be filed in court to prevent such acts from taking place again. The courts should teach this mob a lesson that destruction of government property and illegal entry is a criminal act, just like a person who enters into a residence forcefully and destroys property should be jailed.

@gold4tea@,
Why are you impersonating a foreigner? I can tell in 5 seconds by your writing style and writing errors that you are Chinese. Idiot!

Stupidity to be blamed by politicians due to a rapid response to all complainers. No self-esteem for counseling.
