Why did Taiwan’s Sunflower Movement occupy the parliament for three weeks?
Did this undermine or strengthen democracy?
The Sunflower Movement showed public support for Taiwan’s democracy and for transparency in Taiwan’s relationship with China.
Recent events in Hong Kong parallel Taiwanese struggles for democracy, justice and freedom.
Come and meet Dennis Wei (魏揚) and Wu Cheng (吳崢), two principal leaders of the Sunflower Movement, to discuss the future for the Sunflower Movement and for civil society in Taiwan.
