Taipei, Taiwan

A tourist with luggage coming from nearby Taipei railway station passes police guarding the Executive Yuan government building following a thwarted attempt by students to occupy this building on Sunday 23 March. The nearby Legislative Yuan (Parliament) building now enters its 7th day of occupation by university students opposed to the passing of the Cross-Straight Service and Trade Agreement between Taiwan and China. The students, and many normal Taiwanese, fear the erosion of their hard-won democracy and, eventually, independence, making them, in the words of one student protestor 'no better off than Hong Kong'. Ma ying-jeoh bears the brunt of the protestors ire; known as "Ma 9%" after his latest approval rating, he is seen as kowtowing to the demands of China and selling out Taiwan.
