Face off between pact protest groups

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- China Unification Promotion Party leader Chang An-lo (張安樂), known to the public as the “White Wolf,” led hundreds of activists who support the Cross-Strait Trade in Services Agreement in an attempt to enter the Legislative Yuan yesterday, but was stopped by riot police.

As the student-led occupation of the Legislative Yuan's Assembly Hall entered its third week, Chang and the Taiwan Labor Welfare Alliance led the protesters along Zhongxiao East Road from the Control Yuan, attempting to go to the Legislative Yuan two blocks away via Zhengjiang Street. However, riot police stopped them from going further.

Police were caught between pro-trade pact protesters and anti-trade pact protesters, both of whom hurled insults at one another. Police kept the two parties separated and the pro-trade pact group away from the Legislative Yuan complex.

“Back off, gangsters,” anti-trade pact protesters shouted at pro-trade pact protesters.

Chang, standing on a mini-truck, criticized the police for “sheltering criminals.” He said that the police should have evicted the students from the Assembly Hall on the first day of the occupation, arguing that “if they (the student activists) can go into the Legislature, then why can't we?”

Chang pointed to Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) city councilor Wang Shih-chien (王世堅), who was standing among the anti-trade pact protesters, and claimed that all DPP members are involved in bribery and corruption. Chang said “Wang Shih-chien, can you really say you have not taken any bribes?”

“Which of you DPP (lawmakers and councilors) aren't involved with the mafia? During the daytime you cry 'gangsters,' and during the nighttime you say 'big brothers,'” Chang said. “

After anti-trade pact protesters continued to interrupt Chang when he was delivering his remarks, Chang shouted at the crowds, saying “you don't deserve to be Chinese,” and “China does not need you.”

The demonstration ended around 5:30 p.m. as Chang urged pro-trade pact protesters to leave the area to prevent disrupting traffic.

Students' Response

In response to the pro-trade pact rally, student activist Lin Fei-fan (林飛帆) said that the demonstrators should express their opinions to the Presidential Office and not to the students, as the person with the authority to solve the problem was inside the Presidential Office.

Lin said that the latest opinion polls show that 50 percent of people support the occupation movement, and the student activists will continue occupying the Assembly Hall. Lin urged President Ma Ying-jeou to listen to the people's voices.

As Kuomintang Legislator Chang Ching-chung (張慶忠) is scheduled to convene a cross-committee deliberation meeting to deliberate the Cross-Strait Trade in Services Agreement today, Lin last night argued that the KMT caucus should not deliberate the pact under the current circumstances.

Lin said that even if the Legislative Yuan is going to review the pact in the future, it should not be Chang who convenes the deliberation meeting.

The student activists insist that the Legislative Yuan should pass the Bill on Pacts Between Taiwan and China — a draft bill proposed to strengthen supervision of government procedures in signing agreements with China — and then deliberate the service trade pact.

DPP to Boycott Today's Deliberation

Yesterday afternoon the DPP caucus arrived at the meeting room where the deliberation will be held, ready to spend the night in order to occupy the rostrum and the podium when the meeting began today.

The KMT caucus said they will attend the deliberation meeting and demand the opposition lawmakers conduct an article-by-article deliberation of the agreement.

Figures... the KMT has the criminals and gangsters on its side. That should tell everyone here who has the moral high ground... and it isn't the Klepto Maniac Triad.

These shields of the DPP (students) are claiming that 50 percent of the population supports their illegal acts is very unbelievable. He should call up the claimed 50 percent to come and show their presence for one day and stay with them. When these liars see black they will claim that it is white, and justify their lying, just like that DPP female lawmaker who assaulted a police officer and shouting that she was being assaulted by the authorities. This is the only thing the DPP is very good at besides rabble rousing and causing chaos, violence, destruction. One wonders where they got their education that produced these kinds of persons.

The differences between the Yellow Revolution Edsa 1 PH DEMOCRACY MOVEMENT and the Black shirt Revolution FASCIST MOVEMENT of Taiwan.

_PH EDSA 1- More than 2 Millions Filipinos from all walk of life participated to end the governance of Dictatorship and mass corruption of Marcos regime. Their color is YELLOW. Symbol of Democracy, Love of country and people. The Filipinos student did NOT occupied the PH congress because they the Filipinos student activist leader know that the congress belong to the whole Filipinos and they did not even mess-up their National Father DR. Jose Rizal STATUE AND PORTRAIT. And they shouted Long Live Philippine and Long Live FILIPINOS.

_Taiwan Black Shirt Revolution 330. Black symbol of FASCIST. NOT A Democracy movement. The Student Activist Leader Lin Fei-fan (林飛帆) exagerated and shamelessly claimed 500K (it should be NOT more than 120K. MOSTLY belong to the DPP green croc's and illegitimate sons and daughter of Japan) have join him in protest of Cross-Strait Trade in Services Agreement. And this blight boy have no knowledge that the pact have the greatest impact advantages to our side but deliberately against it, become a stray dog of the corrupt DPP green croc's. Using violent to occupied the Legislative Yuan and attempted to occupy Executive Yuan that belong to the whole people. Lin mess up the portrait of Dr. Sun Yet Sen and perhaps Lin and his bandit destroyed the statue of Dr. Sun Yet Sen before Lin assaulted the LY insulted the whole people national flag by displaying upside down.

COMMON SENSE
_ Lin Fei-fan (林飛帆) is only loyal and faithful to the corrupt DPP green croc's NOT for country and the whole people and Democracy. But with handsome material things inside his mind-box born outside of his head.

REMEMBER Lin Fei-fan (林飛帆). Don't pretend crying with your overacting tear dropping in your face. Perhaps u have rub the White Flower Oil (白花油) near your eye.

REMEMBER AGAIN.
_President Ma was elected by the people NOT you, corrupt green corp's and the illegitimate sons and daughter of Japan.

The sad part is, these students are being used as puppets for dirty political work and they don't even know it. The DPP pulls the strings, and the students dance.

Are people really trying to portray the movement based on COLOR? Try doing this in China and you will vanish into thin air. Long Live Taiwan's Democracy. When the pro-China camp is filled with gangsters, that is all anyone needs to know.

Differences between Chang An-lo (張安樂), corrupt DPP green croc's, Great grand croc's TING KUI and the Black Shirt FASCIST MOVEMENT Leader Lin Fei-fan (林飛帆).

Choose one.

_Chang An-lo (張安樂), Did not committed corruption, create and sow terror, disturbances, did not sow chaos and anxiety against the public. Have chivalry and speak gentle like a real gentleman and uphold our freedom, Liberty and Democracy. Love our country and our flag and call our country Republic of China.

_DPP green croc's were so corrupt, robbing the people money, sow chaos, anxiety, terrorizing, harassment and disturbances. Pretending to uphold our Freedom, Liberty by using the word Democracy, calling our country as "GOVERNMENT IN EXILE". Never respect our National Flag and never sang our National Anthem.
...Great Grand Croc's TING KUI sold out our Dioyutai and bow to the war criminal inside the Yasukuni Shrine.A prime suspect for the dead of our Navy Captain Yin.

_Black Shirt FASCIST MOVEMENT student activist leader Lin Fei-fan (林飛帆) a opportunist, violently occupied the people own Legislative Yuan and attempted violently to occupy again the people own Executive Yuan. A stray dog of the corrupt DPP green croc's.

Most of Taiwanese are waiting for DPP to mature into a professional political group. Most people do not like the KMT but they fear to choose DPP. Please, DPP try to improve yourselves so Taiwan can have more good choices for leaders. If DPP improves then KMT will have more pressure to improve. DPP needs to realize their actions lose respect and votes.

The CSSTA opens various Taiwan and PRC service industries to mutual investment. It is a piece of neo-liberal free trade bullshit whose advantages to Taiwan’s economy have probably been oversold. It will provide some windfall profits for some Taiwanese fat cats in the financial services sector as PRC money floods in, but will probably do little to boost wages and employment, or get the Taiwanese economy out of its overall economic rut.
