Three prominent student protesters yesterday announced their withdrawal from the

“We are tired — body and soul. We are tired of this education and tired of the government,” Chu Chen (朱震), Wang Pin-chen (王品蓁) and Liang Yan-jou (梁豔柔) said in public statement.

The trio said that they were determined to leave, but would remain supporters of the movement. [FULL STORY]
