From Eastern Television Today (ETToday) on March 20,
The occupation of the parliament by anti-ECFA (a trade pact between China and Taiwan) organizations and students entered the second night. The later the evening, the more people were outside of the parliament. They gathered outside of the north side of the parliament, Tsing Tao East Road, and held a sit-in.
At around 10:30 pm on March 19, a Hong Kong tourist went to the front door of the parliament to give support to the young people there. He called on Taiwanese emotionally, “Hong Kong has lost everything. I hope you guys will keep it up and guard Taiwan.”
The tourist used Hong Kong as example and explained that as Hong Kong opened up to China, the mass influx of Mainland Chinese leads to the skyrocketing of living expenses. “Hongkongers has lost their home. You guys must guard Taiwan.” The Hongkonger stated that he returned from Luodong Night Market and is envious that Taiwan still has her own culture and distinguishing characteristics.
“In Hong Kong, I’ve to wait for four trains before getting on one. However, in Taiwan, even during rush hour, I can still breathe. I feel very grateful. ” The Hong Kong tourist also called on Taiwanese emotionally to guard their home until they are content with the outcome. Students there cried after hearing the speech and answered “very great” (in Taiwanese) to cheer up each other.
I’m a Hongkonger. Don’t want (Taiwan to be) the second Hong Kong.
Refuse to be the second Hong Kong
