Tonight, I decided to get a pre-run snack at Sogo. I headed out around 7:30, and stumbled into a sea of protesters wearing red shirts as soon as I stepped out the door. So, I ran back in and grabbed my camera and followed them towards their congregation point at Zhōngxiào Dūnhuà.
They were screaming support for Shī Míngdé and telling President Chén to step down. I’ve never seen crowds of protesters like this in my life. There was even a miniature economy that had sprung up to support the protesters. Street vendors appeared out of nowhere and started selling sausages, water, red shirts, and various other protesting supplies.
Look at that! I sure wouldn’t be seeing anything remotely like this if I were still living out in Guīshān.
I have some photos up on Zooomr.
