That asks for an immediate answer. After the media enounced, that the Wild Strawberry protests ended, the Government wants to turn this into reality.

The strategy of peaceful protests and sit – ins seems to have failed.
Maybe it is time for the French way of protests, like demonstrations in the city center, blocking the economic heart of Taipei or specific actions against critical infrastructure like Train - or Metrostations and Airports to engage and defeat the government.

This is a declaration of war and people need to accept this challenge and work out strategies for victory.

‚They have force and will be able to dominate us, but social processes can be arrested by neither crime nor force. History is ours, and people make history.’

Did the police forcefully move people out? What happened to the Tibetan people who are also sitting at Freedom Square?

One day after Human Rights Day and the government shows what it really thinks about human rights. It probably rarely thinks about them at all!!!
