Professors turn out for Sunday’s protest on Ketagalan Boulevard (2014/03/30)

Today’s protest attracted professors standing in solidarity with students opposing the cross-strait trade-in-services pact. As some led a sit-in outside the Legislative Yuan to protect the students inside, others joined those demonstrating on Ketagalan Boulevard. 

Jian Shang-ren, a professor of folk music at National Tsing Hua University, appeared at the rally and performed his own songs, helping entertain the audience. Sitting to his side is 76-year-old Yang Wei-che, a retired mathematics professor from National Taiwan University. Both lent their support to students protesting the cross-strait trade-in-services pact.

NTU Professor Emeritus 
In just 30 seconds, the legislative committee passed the bill. Electing (a president like this) is really a shame for Taiwan.

In the past, university professors angered by actions undertaken by the Ma administration hired coaches and paid for bus tickets for students to travel to Taipei to protest. Today many decided to participate themselves, including those who are part of the NGO known as Tainan Community University.

Tainan Community University President
We estimate about 800 to 1,000 (members of Tainan Community University) took part today.

About 10 National Dong Hwa University professors staged a sit-in in front of the Legislative Yuan to ensure the safety of students. They are proud of the efforts that students are making on behalf of Taiwan’s democracy and wanted to show their support.

教授上街頭

330這天,有不少大學教授挺身而出,上街反服貿,社區大學促進會,也集結全台近千名老師,到凱道抗議,東華大學10名教授,則組團,自願在立院前靜坐守夜,默默幫抗議學生們,守護立法院,避免發生驅離行動。

在清大授課的民謠專家簡上仁,唱著自創歌曲,幫現場所有人打氣。坐他身邊的,則是台大數學系名譽教授楊維哲,高齡76歲,也堅持走上街頭反黑箱服貿。

“30秒裡面,立法院裡面委員會就這樣(通過) , 選出這樣的人(當總統) ,這是台灣的恥辱”

說起馬政府,大學教授,通通一肚子氣,先前只是出錢租遊覽車,買客運車票,幫助學生北上。如今330大遊行,大學教授和老師們,按奈不住,乾脆集結上街,人數有上千人之多。

“(社大老師)預估啦,大概有800到1000個”

也有近十名東華大學教授們,沒上凱道,堅持坐在立院門前,默默守護學生。這些教授們心疼年輕人為民主的付出,跳出來支持,要做學生們最堅強的後盾。
