Non-partisan protesters?

I ran into some of the protesters yesterday in Taichung. They were apparently waiting for buses, and had decorated a footbridge.





The meeting site appears to be an interesting statement on the real politics of the "protest" up in Taipei. The wall behind the protesters is the Confucius Temple in Taichung, which is also the Martyr's Shrine to the soldiers who died for the Republic of China fighting the Japanese -- in other words, the "non-partisan" protesters met at a KMT landmark.

Look how similar all the red ribbons are! Not a good indicator that they were placed there without some "organizer" behind them.

I recall Shih Ming-teh saying just a couple days ago: "People power, which follows no tactics, is strongest."

If they can put up red ribbons, can cut we the ribbons down?

Dear Tim,

It seems like Kathrin Hille, the Taipei staff of Financial Times, was making some remarks that weren't so appropriate.

Is there any way to deal with this issue? Thanks much.
