A group of students who are part of Junior School Alliance for Education went to the Ministry
of Education around 9pm on July 17 and painted, “ Anti-brainwash, Anti- black box, Stupid Government”, on the pillars of the front courtyard and the walls.
“We want objective history! We reject a brainwashed education that is full of flaws! We demand the Ministry of Education to retrieve the altered curricula!” yelled the students who climbed over the exterior walls of the Ministry of Education and painted their statements on the pillars and walls in the front courtyard. The students were arrested within 4 minutes. Other 6 students who remained outside of the walls proclaimed their statement and protested intensely.
Tsai Hsi-chih, the spokesman for the student alliance, said the altered curricula will directly affect high school students who will be attending 10th grade this year. He is also one of them. [FULL STORY]
