The Republican Party yesterday flexed its organizational muscles with a
massive rally along Ketagalan Boulevard in front of the Presidential Office Building in Taipei.
Following hours of performances and speeches, each of the party’s legislative candidates symbolically waved the party’s banner, passed to them by party Chairman Hsu Hsin-ying (徐欣瑩).
The “Lion of Justice” emblazoned on the banner also served as the theme of the rally, which was officially titled “The Lion of Justice Saves Taiwan.”
Party volunteers said that the lion (獅子) was chosen as the theme animal, because it sounds the same as “teacher” (師) in Mandarin. [FULL STORY]
