TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — A Taiwan NGO and acting troupe performed a re-enactment of the Hong Kong anti-extradition bill protests on the streets of Taipei, at Chianti Avenue Plaza, on Saturday (Nov. 16).

Citizen Front Taiwan (台灣公民陣線) spokesperson, Chiang Min-yen (江旻諺), explained the goal was to raise awareness about the situation in Hong Kong and the threat posed by China.

“Time-Lapse of Hong Kong: Raising Awareness of the Atrocities of Communist China (香港縮時:一起喚醒對中共暴行仍無所知的人),” was performed by Citizen Front Taiwan and the Three and Four Participatory Theater (三語事劇場). The show included a re-enactment of police firing tear gas at the demonstrators and was a reminder the fight for democracy in Hong Kong has not ended.
