Re-Inauguration of President Ma Ying Jeou

The official re-inauguration of Taiwan's President Ma Ying Jeou for his second term was held on May 20th, much to the controversy of opposition parties. The DPP and other opposition parties joined together to hold massive anti-government protests throughout Taipei, expressing their hate and dissatisfaction with the government. The protests lasted two days at different locations in Taipei, including marches from 3 locations on Sunday to a central meeting point. Outside Taipei Main Train Station protesters blocked off the street and protested non stop for two days, going on through the night on Saturday. The national flag was taken down and the TAIUNA - The Taiwan United Nations Alliance flag was raised flapping in the wind. As well as protesting against Ma Ying Jeou, the opposition parties were campaigning for the release of the former president Chen Shui Bian who is currently serving a 19 year sentence for bribery and embezzlement of government funds.

  1. Hi, yes there two main protests that weekend, this one was against the imprisonment of Chen Shui Bian, the former president. Many people beleive he should be freed due to his health and the conditions in which he is kept in. The people at the protest beleive he has been imprisoned under faulse pretences and fabricated evidence.
