So Taiwan’s ruling KMT is fast tracking a ‘Cross-Strait Agreement on Trade in Services’ with China in spite of the main opposition party, as well as 70% of Taiwanese according to some polls, wanting the Agreement reviewed line by line.
In response, the Parliament building has been occupied by students.
I guess this may be nothing more than a ‘flash in the pan’ resulting from effective ‘astro-turfing’. Then again, could be the real deal. I don’t know.
Anyway. I really don’t have time to delve into the current political dynamics of Taiwan and compose a proper post on this today. So what I’m hoping is that the thread beneath this post can be used by people to provide useful information. I mean that as something different to the usual pressure release valve of one opinion headbanging against the next.
Look on it as an experiment is you will.
