We are students that have taken over Taiwan's Legislature. Almost half a million people have joined us in support. AMA!
We are the student organizers that have taken over Taiwan’s Legislature for the past two weeks. The occupation is ongoing. On Sunday, almost half a million people came out to the streets in support of us (video).
We are upset that the government attempted to ram a huge services trade agreement with China through a legislative session without due process, in an authoritarian and undemocratic manner.
The trade pact will bind our economy and society irrevocably closer to China, which wants to take away our freedoms and our democracy. As students, we are concerned over our country's future.
Joining us at this AMA will be (all of us are currently in the Legislative chambers PROOF):
(2) Oliver Chen (陳瑞光)
(3) Lin Yu-hsuan (林郁璇)
(4) Sean Su (蘇襄) - host of the English UStream feed

That's it everyone! Thank you for the AMA session, it was really, really great listening to all your questions. It's 4am right now, so most of us are going to bed.
We'll continue to answer questions in the morning, so keep them coming!
Thanks for the AMA everyone. We really appreciated the chance to talk with you about our movement (now reaching 400 hours in the Legislature). We hope that you can continue to support us by writing to your local representatives or the media. Please also follow us on Facebook, UStream, or an English text feed here, we will do our best to continue providing updates in English. Thank you!
