Activists Saturday marked the third anniversary of the Sunflower Movement, with a
protest outside the Legislature criticizing the Democratic Progressive Party’s (DPP) “slow progress” in enacting a law to make negotiations between the government and Beijing more transparent.
The Sunflower Movement began on March 18, 2014 when students, civic groups and other civil society activists occupied the Legislature in protest at the then-ruling Kuomintang administration’s plans to push through a cross-strait trade and services pact.
Saturday’s demonstration was led by Lin Fei-fan and Chen Wei-ting, two of the leaders of the occupation, which ended April 10 after activists secured concessions from the then-Legislative Speaker Wang Jin-pyng. [FULL STORY]
