MA’S RE-INAUGURATION: Taiwanese come together to protest

ONE VOICE:From weddings to funerals, politicians to the general public, people came out to protest soaring prices, government indifference and rising national debt

Chang Chia-ling (張嘉玲), director of the DPP’s Department of Women’s Development, also caught many people’s eye when she joined the rally at one of the assembly points, outside National Taiwan University campus, in her bright red wedding gown.

“I came directly from my wedding banquet,” she said. “I will remember this day for all my life, not only because it’s my wedding day, but also because this is the day when so many Taiwanese people have come out to tell the government that we’re suffering.”
