CNN ： Taiwan Legislature occupiers' ultimatum passes without response from government
Viv Lo Ohnojuna • 2 days ago
Thank you for your attention to this crucial event in Taiwan, as a non-Taiwanese. I would like to explain it to you in this way: the major problem, as most people are opposed to, is that the government did not follow the legitimate procedure of negotiating, deliberating and passing of the pact. EVEN IF THEY DID, now people have doubts about it, but we receive no specific official explanation. A lot of scholars in the fields of Politics, Sociology, Human Rights and Law are analyzing the pros and cons of this pact, and have found it unfair and harmful to our economy. Most importantly, what the government have done is so against democracy. The Control Yuan (the institute of scrutiny) should start investigating into the members of the Legislative Yuan (our parliament), the supreme court judge should interprete the constitution, and the president should show up and explain everything. But we've got nothing so far. So we keep protesting, peacefully and rationally, waiting for the government to respond.

Viv Lo :『謝謝關心這重要事件的人，民眾抗爭的主要原因是政府沒有依照法定程序來和大陸蹄結合約，也非法通過服冒。即使政府有依法進行，當民眾對服冒有疑慮的時候，民眾並沒有得到政府正式的回應解說。各界(政治/法律/社會學/人權)學者，分析了服冒的利弊，學者發現服冒對台灣經濟不公平且不利。而最重要的是，政府的作為是反民主。有關單位應該調查有無弊端，馬總統應該現身解釋。但是我們到目前為止抗議得不到回應，所以我們繼續和平理性的抗爭，等待政府的回應。』

Why do people ignore the fact that the terms and conditions of this trade pact was there for opposition and people's representatives to review sine last year? This trade pact was passed because there were no opinions and reviews from opposition. So if you want to blame someone, blame the opposition and people's representatives. NOT the president. He did his part, his group negotiated with China, he thought it will be beneficial to Taiwan. BUT never got feedback from opposition. That's why it is passed. How is that illegal? Tell me. Dig deeper, think about who started this protest, how and who are those people responsible for reviewing the terms and conditions. Blame them, not president.
This trade pact follows the legal terms and conditions of ECFA. ECFA is legal. This trade pact is just one of the branches of it.
Whether this trade pact is beneficial or harmful, well, there were analysis everywhere. Some say beneficial, some say harmful alright. NOT everyone say harmful.
And what this trade pact really brings is OPPORTUNITY! Opportunity is for those who are prepared.
