High-school student protesters and civic groups yesterday rallied outside the Ministry of
Education building in Taipei, demanding the release of students arrested in the early hours of the morning after breaking into the complex.
“We demand that our comrades be immediately released and not be subjected to violent judicial hunting,” Taoyuan High School Alliance spokesperson Liao Hao-hsiang (廖浩翔) said.
“If the ministry does not give us a reasonable and positive response today, we will continue our protest, refusing to bend in spite of last night’s [Friday morning’s] violent expulsion,” he said. [FULL STORY]
