Today’s public gathering, held in front of the Presidential Office Building, is seen as a critical point in the same-sex marriage campaign, which threatens to be derailed by loud opposition from religious groups and a lack of political will by government legislators and President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文).
As of about 4 p.m, there was more more than 200,000 people in attendance, event organizers told The News Lens International.
Last Saturday, an estimated 50,000 people, mostly dressed in white, gathered near the government buildings in the capital to show their opposition to the proposed marriage equality laws. [FULL STORY]
