Taiwan Pro-Independence Party Protests China Policies in Rally

From Bloomberg:

Taiwan’s opposition party staged a rally in Taipei today to protest President Ma Ying-Jeou’s China policies which they claimed will threaten the sovereignty of the island.

About half a million people joined the demonstration, said Cheng Wen-Tsang, a spokesman for the Democratic Progressive Party, or DPP. A police estimate wasn’t immediately available.

The mostly green-clad demonstrators marched through the streets of Taipei waving banners that read “Safeguard Taiwan”, “Oppose Toxic Products” and “Say No to China.” Green is the color of the opposition party.
