Taipei, July 11 (CNA) Hundreds of demonstrators protested Saturday in front of the headquarters of the two major political parties in Taiwan and the Legislative Yuan to express anger over what they perceive to be lawmakers’ delay in reviewing a same-sex marriage bill.
Led by the Taiwan Alliance to Promote Civil Partnership Rights, the demonstrators protested in front of the ruling Kuomintang’s (KMT’s) headquarters in Taipei before marching to the headquarters of the opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and ending the rally at the Legislative Yuan.
In front of the police-guarded KMT headquarters, the protesters shouted slogans such as “KMT, don’t be the stumbling block in equal marriage rights” and held rainbow flags, as well as placards reading “I want to get married. I am gay.” [FULL STORY]
