The protest on Thursday morning featured calls for Taiwan to be accepted as a member of the United Nations. Protesters also called for Beijing to release the Taiwanese activist Lee Ming-che. Lee was tried earlier this week for “subversion of state power” for seeking to share Taiwan’s experience of democracy with Chinese friends.

The head of the group said Beijing is the biggest obstacle to Taiwan’s accession to the UN and Taiwanese participation in international organizations. The group leader also said that the arrest of Lee Ming-che was intended to threaten Taiwan’s people.
