Taipei, Taiwan

Protestors change the marker from 105 to 106 hours that the occupation has been in progress below a giant portrait of the Republic of China's founding father, Sun Yat-Sen hanging in Taiwan's Legislative Yuan (Parliament) Building on the 4th day of its occupation by 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.
