Students from Premier Jiang’s old department call on him to step down (2014/03/27)
Premier Jiang Yi-huah used to teach political science at National Taiwan University, but his former department has turned on him for his handling of protests against a controversial trade-in-services pact with China. Some 760 NTU political science students and graduates have signed a petition asking Jiang to step down. A protest was also held on Thursday to further vent their displeasure.
Unhappy with just shouting slogans, friends of NTU’s political science department burned a book written by Premier Jiang Yi-huah called “The Way to Democracy.”
(Premier Jiang) have you thought about how many of the students you suppressed were your students?
The protesters voiced anger over the premier’s order to evict students who tried to occupy the Executive Yuan building on March 23. At a press conference held outside NTU’s College of Social Sciences, they accused Jiang of singing a different tune from his days as a professor.
(Premier Jiang) once said that if a leader lost the faith of the people, he should step down. So Premier Jiang, now that you have lost the faith of the people, please step down. Please apologize.
The premier did not respond to Thursday’s protest. But he did order officials responsible for the trade-in-services agreement to visit schools to address doubts about the pact.
