Okay, fellow Cumberfans, can we have a quick chat about the upcoming Hamlet business? I know I’m not alone in my excitement about the possibility of getting tickets to…
^^^Agreed. Could we try to avoid the “all Cumberbatch fans are teenage girls, and all teenage girls are screeching, hysterical monsters” thing? Famous screen stars have been in serious stage plays before, and fans have gone to see them. It will be okay. I have found disinterested businessmen texting and talking during plays much more disruptive (and more common) at the theater.
"I’m a Taiwanese"
─ Young Generation Guarding Taiwan Democracy
The coalition of student and civic groups against the Cross-Strait Service Trade Agreement today releases the following statement:
“It has now been 48 hours since we occupied Taiwan’s legislature. We, a non-partisan group of students, civic activists, and people from all walks of life — have taken over the Legislature in protest against the undemocratic and autocratic manner in which the Cross-Strait Service Trade Agreement has been handled by the government and the legislature.
Since our occupation, we have seen tens of thousands of citizens from all across the country join us in support of our demands. Doctors have formed medical stations, lawyers have created pro bono legal teams, and professors have relocated their classes here. All this could not have been possible without the help and support from our fellow citizens concerned about Taiwan’s future.
As of 3/20, our demands include:
1. We demand that Legislative Speaker Wang Jin-pyng (王金平) immediately void Legislator Chang Ching-chung’s (張慶忠) announcement that the CSSTA has passed the committee stage.
2. President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) should begin with us dialogue and negotiations over:
(a) the rejection of the CSSTA; and
(b) the passage of a bill for monitoring cross-strait agreements, and a promise to refrain from negotiating such agreements in lieu of the bill
If our demands are not met by noon on Friday, March 21, our protest will continue and we will begin our next round of action.”
