China trade deal protest
Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators gathered in the streets around Taiwan’s parliament yesterday to protest against a trade pact with China.
The rally was part of a nearly two-week-old protest that is challenging the president’s policy of moving the democratic island economically closer to China.
Lin Fei-fan, a protest organiser, estimated that 500,000 people had turned out in the biggest demonstration since the movement started.
