Taiwan: Students Storm & Occupy Ministry of Education Against China-Centric Curriculum

0

Thousands of students in Taiwan have stormed and occupied the Ministry of Education to demand an end to the proposed implementation of a China-centric teaching curriculum tomorrow. (July 31)

High School student Dai Lin (林冠華)the spokesperson for the Anti-Curriculum Changes Alliance has committed suicide.

Yesterday Lin was found dead in his room with a grill burning coal and the windows sealed with tape.

Lin, one of the protesters arrested on Thursday night last week after entering the Ministry of Education building to protest against the ministry’s controversial adjustments to high-school curriculum guidelines, was facing criminal charges after being released on NT$20,000 bail on Friday.

The alliance, made up of college professors, high-school teachers and a number of civic groups, said that the protests were unable to gain the ministry’s attention and the students’ hands were forced, adding that their subsequent efforts have been met with persecution.
