TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – The Presidential Office praised the Sunflower Movement
Saturday, on the third anniversary of the occupation of the Legislative Yuan by mostly students.
The occupation, which lasted for 24 days until April 10, 2014, was directed against an attempt by the then-Kuomintang government to force through an unpopular trade accord with China.
The Sunflower Movement awakened everybody to the fact that the people are the true masters of the country, presidential spokesman Alex Huang said Saturday. He added that the Democratic Progressive Party which took office last May had been pushing through reforms and transformation in the fields of economic progress, trade strategy and wider international space for the nation.
