Police take away the “Democracy classroom” on Christmas Eve in Taipei City
A letter I wrote about police and human rights was published in the Taipei Times today.
In the letter I mention that I have witnessed incidents before and after Chen Yunlin’s visit. The incident before was at the Car Free Day activity in Taipei County on 20 September. The main incident after was on Christmas Eve in Taipei City. Students from the Wild Strawberry Movement were involved in an incident with police from the Zhongzheng No. 2 Police Station (中正第二分局). I have not written about this on my blog but you can see some photos at flickr. Reports in Chinese of the events of that day can be found on the Wild Strawberry Movement’s blog and on page A5 of the Liberty Times (自由時報), 25 December 2008. The Taipei Times also reported on 26 December that the Wild Strawberries plan to take legal action against the police in relation to the incident.
