On March 18th, civic groups and student demonstrators stormed Taiwan’s parliament floor to protest the government’s ratifying a controversial trade agreement with China without proper democratic processes. The sit-in, known as the Sunflower Movement, demanded that the government be accountable to the people, and lasted over 20 days.
We have invited a few student leaders of the Sunflower Movement to speak to you on August 18: 林飛帆 Fei-Fan Lin, 陳為廷 Wei-Ting Chen, 黃國昌 Kuo-Chang Huang, 周馥儀Fu-Yi Chou, 賴品妤Ping-Yu Lai, 賴郁棻Yu-fen Lai.
Chen Weiting and Lin Fei-fan are graduate students in sociology and political science, and were the spokespersons for the students; Prof. Huang Kuo-chang is a legal scholar with Academia Sinica on civil procedure, and a core member of the movement.
