Student leaders thank crowds who gathered to protest cross-strait trade-in-services pact (2014/03/30)

From midday today a mass of black-shirted protesters assembled on Ketagalan Boulevard and surrounding streets. Organizers estimate that hundreds of thousands of people joined together in protest against the cross-strait trade-in-services pact. Student leaders thanked those who came out to support what they are calling an historical event. 

Today’s protest was centered on Ketagalan Boulevard, in front of the Presidential Office, but it went much farther. From Jingfu Gate to Zhongshan South Road, the crowd extended into the distance. Protesters also surrounded the Legislative Yuan. At 4 pm, organizers announced that half a million demonstrators attended.

Student leader Chen Wei-ting gave a speech in which he accused President Ma Ying-jeou of only giving half-hearted, insincere responses to the demonstrators.

Student Leader
Why is Ma Ying-jeou this scared of legislation that would give the people a chance to participate in review of cross-strait agreements? What he’s scared of is a promise he made to Beijing. The Chinese government keeps demanding of him that he complete review of the pact by June.

Another student leader, Lin Fei-fan, said that success of the student-led movement depends on everyone’s participation.

Student Leader
A student movement has successfully morphed into a nationwide civil movement. This isn’t something that the students can achieve alone. It can only be realized if all citizens of Taiwan rally together.

As students continued to maintain their grip on the Legislative Yuan, they were bolstered by black-shirted masses who turned out today in support of their cause.

全民占凱道

反服貿330凱道遊行,從中午開始,大批黑衫軍就往凱道集結,到傍晚為止,主辦單位宣稱現場湧進50萬人。學運領袖林飛帆為現場眾多人潮感到驕傲,高呼寫下歷史新頁,勝利屬於全體人民。

不只凱道滿滿滿,從景福門往中山南路一帶看,看不到人群的盡頭,人潮一路蔓延到立法院周邊。下午四點,主辦單位宣稱活動已經超過五十萬人。

學運領袖之一的陳為廷上台,痛批馬總統對學生反服貿的訴求,敷衍沒誠意。

為什麼馬英九連一個法讓人民參與審查,都這麼怕,因為他怕的是,他跟北京跟中國政府已經有承諾,北京的政府一直在要求他,六月前要完成審查。

另一位學運領袖林飛帆則認為,這個運動的成就屬於參與的每個人。

從學生運動成功地串起,台灣整個公民運動,這已經不是學生自己能達成的事情,這必須是由台灣所有的公民朋友,展現集體團結的力量,才有辦法達成。

不只在立法院持續靜坐的學生民眾堅持反服貿,周日下午在凱道集結的黑色人潮,展現對馬政府更驚人的反對力量。
