Students occupying Taiwan government take to Reddit AMA#太陽花學運在知名社群Reddit發聲 國外網友表示肯定

Students occupying Taiwan government take to Reddit AMA
占領台灣政府機關的學生們在Reddit AMA上發聲

The Sunflower Movement of students occupying Taiwan’s national assembly have explained their goals in a Reddit Ask Me Anything session.
占領台灣國會的太陽花學運在國外知名社群網站Reddit的"儘管問"活動中解釋了他們的抗爭目標。

Led by 25-year-old Lin Fei-Fan and 24-year-old Chen Wei-ting, protesters known as the Sunflower Movement survived early eviction attempts and have organised a peaceful occupation in the legislature building, complete with recycling bins and cameras broadcasting a live feed on Ustream.

Taking to Reddit, protest leaders laid out their objections to the trade deal, balancing cost-benefit figures of local GDP against economic and social independence from China, and registering general dissatisfaction with the government.

“You guys are so brave," says one Redditt user. “I’m a student and I couldn’t even imagine overtaking a Taco Bell." Protestor Oliver Chen replies, “Ask most of us here a couple of months ago, and we would have probably said the same."

“But one day you realize that if you aren’t willing to stand up for your country now, there might never be another chance. That’s a pretty sobering thought."
由25歲的林飛帆和24歲的陳為廷所領導,太陽花學運在先前遭政府嘗試驅離後,仍持續進行和平占領國會的行動。抗爭者還利用資源回收桶及照相機在Ustream(註1)上做現場直播。

學運領導者讓議題延燒至Reddit,在此社群上闡述了他們反對服貿的理由;權衡分析該協議對台灣GDP帶來的成本效益及與中國在經濟、社會上獨立造成的影響;並且表達人民對政府的普遍不滿。

“你們真的很勇敢,”一名Reddit使用者評論。“我也是一個學生,但我連占領塔可鐘(註2)都不敢想”。抗議學生陳瑞光回應,“如果在幾個月前,我們之中大部分的人可能也會說一樣的話。"

“但有天你意識到,如果你現在不願為你的國家站出來,以後可能再也沒有機會了。這是非常值得深思的問題。“

Three Scenarios That End Occupation Of Taiwan Parliament#結束占領台灣國會的三種可能 《富比世》雜誌對服貿事件的預測

Three Scenarios That End Occupation Of Taiwan Parliament
結束占領台灣國會的三種可能

Ralph Jennings, Contributor

How then will the occupation end?

Here are three scenarios:

  • Police force everyone out

Members of Taiwan’s ruling Nationalist Party, which has a majority in parliament, are talking to their main opposition on how to ratify the trade pact. MPs are open to an item-by-item review, the cancellation of which incited a break-in that got the occupation started. That review could strike clauses hurtful to Taiwanese businesses, sending the agreement back to negotiators from Taipei and Beijing for another round of talks. The pact as signed in June would open 80 service sector categories in China and just 64 here – part of Beijing’s image management offensive aimed at political reunification with Taiwan someday.

A vote on the trade agreement would need a podium clear of protesters. Groups who back the trade agreement despite fears of getting too cozy with old enemy China have threatened a showdown today with students in parliament. Taiwan’s president told a visiting US scholar Monday that the occupation is illegal and uncool in a democratic society.

These pressures would prompt legislative speaker Wang Jin-pyng to issue a get-out deadline and call police on protesters who defy the order to be martyrs (pronounced “media celebs”) for a cause. Batons would bring blood, but hospitals are ready after the violent ouster March 23 of protesters from the cabinet headquarters.

Still, legislators worry about their images as elections are never far off. The parliament speaker has told students so far to take care of themselves, not to start packing up the banana peels and lunch boxes. “I don’t think Wang Jin-pyng will use police,” says Huang, who’s close to local politics. “He has his own way of thinking.” Odds: moderate

  • Students leave by attrition

Whether it’s the crush of midterm exams this month, fatigue from sleeping on cardboard mats or frustration for lack of protest results, the students anchoring today’s occupation may find things more rewarding outside parliament. About 700 protesters are there at any one time, some at the podium and others in doorways. That’s down from thousands in the occupation’s first week and more than 100,000 street demonstrators for the same cause on Sunday.

Maybe we get a dip during mid-month exams. But a zero headcount is unlikely. People fresh out of the exam room can replace those headed in. It takes just a few dozen to command parliament’s podium. Odds: low

  • Students relocate protest after deal with legislators

Protest leaders suddenly announce that (perhaps after exam season) they will move outside parliament to a venue that’s high profile but doesn’t obstruct government business.

The relocation could follow a backroom deal between student protesters and legislators keen to shake off criticism from pro-trade pact people and law-and-order elements of the Nationalist Party leadership. Their handshake would save face for the students as they carry on the protest and for the legislators, who could get on with their agenda without being blamed for police clashes. Odds: moderate to high

那麼占領行動將如何結束?

有三種可能情形:

  • 警方強行驅離

台灣的執政黨 - 國民黨黨員,在國會中佔多數席次,仍在和主要反對黨討論如何批准貿易協議。立法委員將開放逐條審查此協議,這也是引發闖入占領立院的導火線。這次審查可能刪除對台灣企業有害的條款,使台北與北京當局重新展開另一輪談判。這項於去年六月簽署的協議,中國將開放80類服務行業而台灣只開放64類 – 由北京的部分形象而言,旨在有天與台灣達成政治統一。

貿易協議的表決將需要一個沒有抗議者的講台;支持貿易協議的團體,儘管害怕和宿敵中國太過親近,仍於今日威脅與立院中的學生正面對決;台灣總統週一向來訪的美國學者表示,此占領行動在一個民主社會中是違法並且不夠冷靜沉著的舉動。

這些壓力將促使立法院長王金平發出最後通牒,要求警方對為理想公然違抗社會秩序的壯士們採取行動。警棍將帶來鮮血,但醫院自3月23日警方將抗議者從行政院暴力驅逐之後早已準備就緒。

然而,立法委員會顧慮形象,畢竟他們始終心繫選舉。立法院長至今仍呼籲學生們要照顧好自己,還不用開始打包香蕉皮及便當盒。“我不認為王金平會動員警力,”一名熟悉當地政治的黃姓人士說。“他有自己的想法。”機率:中等

  • 學生戰力耗盡而離開

無論是遭到這個月的期中考擊潰、在紙板上久睡造成的疲勞或抗爭缺乏成效帶來的挫折,在這場占領行動堅持著的學生可能會發現立法院外有其他更具價值的事物。隨時有大約700名抗議者在院中待命,有些人在講台上有些在各出入口。相較於占領行動第一週的數千人,以及為同樣訴求於星期日上街頭抗議的十多萬人,人數已相對減少。

也許在期中考時人數會下降,但人去樓空的可能性不大,剛走出考場的人可以接替入場者。事實上要掌控立院講台只需數十人。機率:低

  • 學生和立委協調後遷往別處繼續抗議

抗議活動的領導人突然宣布(也許在考季結束後),他們將移往另一個引人注目但不妨礙政府機能的場所繼續抗爭。

抗議的遷徙可能會依照學生和立法委員之間的幕後協議進行。這些立委渴望擺脫來自支持服貿者的批評,以及國民黨領導層要求維護法治的施壓。他們的握手言和將為雙方留下台階:學生可繼續抗爭,立委們則可繼續進行議程,不必因警察鎮壓而遭受譴責。機率:中度到高

Protests Won’t Undermine Taiwan’s Reputation #服貿 退回影響國際聲譽 日媒:純為誤導

Protests Won’t Undermine Taiwan’s Reputation
抗議並不會損害台灣國際聲譽 

Claims that the Sunflower Movement will hurt Taiwan’s ability to join regional trade pacts are misguided.
宣稱太陽花運動將妨害台灣加入區域貿易協定純為誤導


In fact, states do often renegotiate treaties and usually there is a mechanism for such a procedure embedded in the treaty. The consequences are rarely as grave as is now being claimed. Ireland did not became an international outcast when it failed to approve the Lisbon treaty in a 2008 referendum and the Nice treaty in a 2001 referendum. In both cases, negotiations were opened again, changes were made and both treaties eventually entered into force.

In addition, the argument can be made that other democracies do understand the complexity of the ratification process, especially when it comes to free trade (or free trade-like) agreements. It is also likely that other governments would recognize that agreements with China are different than Taiwan’s dealings with other governments. The United States would hardly stop promoting Taiwan’s Trans-Pacific Partnership membership just because Taipei failed to ratify the CSSTA with China, nor would the failure to ratify the treaty deter Japan from entering into negotiations with Taiwan. In other words, Taiwan’s deals with China are not a reliable benchmark for measuring Taiwan’s reputation. It is hard to think that Taiwan’s partners are not aware of this.

Naturally, Beijing would hardly be pleased if CSSTA were ratified with some major changes. Likewise, it is certainly not pleased by the emergence of a civic movement that crosses party lines and aspires to hold the government accountable. This is especially true because Taiwan’s movement appears to be seen as a model in the increasingly restive Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, which Beijing is already struggling to control. If (and only if) the Sunflower Movement succeeds in pushing CSSTA back to the negotiation table, Beijing will face a certain dilemma: if it appears to retaliate, it will only confirm that protesters were right to suspect sinister intentions. Moreover, any future arrangement between Taipei and Beijing will be under very close public scrutiny. Maybe it is, after all, a better option for Ma (and Beijing) to appease public opposition and return to the negotiation table.

事實上,國家之間針對條約重新談判的情形經常發生,且條約中通常含有相關機制規範此程序。所造成的後果也很少如其現在宣稱的如此嚴重。愛爾蘭於2001年的及2008年的公民投票中依序否決了尼斯條約、里斯本條約(註1、2)的簽署,均未因此遭受國際間的排擠。在這兩起案例中,談判皆重新展開,條款重新修訂,兩條約最終仍合法生效。

此外,該說法還有另一項爭議。其他民主國家應能了解條約批准過程的複雜性,尤其當牽涉到簽署自由貿易協定(或類似)。其他國家政府也很可能辨別得出,台灣與中國的協議和他們之間的並不相同;美國不會僅僅因為台灣未能批准兩岸服務貿易協議,便放棄支持台灣加入跨太平洋夥伴協定(TPP),日本亦不會因此停止對台協商。換言之,台灣和中國的協議對於台灣的信譽並不是可靠的衡量標準,很難想像台灣的邦交國不會意識到這點。

當然,若服貿經部分重大修正而後批准,北京當局不可能為此感到高興。同樣地,對於一項民間運動的出現,跨越了黨派界限,並渴望向政府追究責任,其亦肯定大感不悅。特別是在台灣學運似乎被日益動盪的香港特別行政區視為民主典範,而北京對香港已努力加強掌控之時。如果(且唯有)太陽花學運成功將服貿推回談判桌,北京將必然面臨進退兩難的困境:若採取報復手段,只會證實抗爭者懷疑其圖謀不軌是正確的。並且,未來兩岸之間任何協議都將接受民眾嚴密的審查。也許對於馬總統(或北京當局)而言,較佳選擇仍舊是安撫大眾的反彈並返回談判桌。

註:

  1. 尼斯條約(Treaty of Nice),全稱修改歐洲聯盟條約、建立歐洲各共同體諸條約和某些附件的尼斯條約(Treaty of Nice amending the Treaty on European Union, the Treaties establishing the European Communities and certain related acts),為歐盟歷史上的一個重要條約。2001年2月26日,歐盟會員國領導人正式簽署尼斯條約。2003年2月1日,尼斯條約正式施行。主要內容有,規定歐盟委員會委員數須少於27名;在歐盟理事會表決票數分配上,規定了按成員國人口數目分配表決票數的基本原則,此外擴大了「有效多數制」的應用範圍,以提供歐盟決策效率。
  2. 里斯本條約,又稱改革條約,是歐盟用以取代《歐盟憲法條約》的條約。里斯本條約已經在2007年12月13日為所有歐盟成員國簽署,並於2009年12月1日正式生效。里斯本條約旨在調整當前極需變革的歐盟在全球的角色、人權保障、歐盟決策機構效率,並針對全球氣候暖化、天然能源等政策,以提高歐盟全球競爭力和影響力。

Why Does Daisy Get Her Ice Cream First#萌犬系列2:當萌犬遇見冰淇淋(中英字幕)


Sometimes, sharing a meal can be a great way to pass the hours with a good friend, but when you’re ravenously hungry it’s more a case of dog eat dog.

和朋友分享美食有時候是打發時間的絕佳方法,但當你剛參加完飢餓三十,這就會變成弱肉強食的殘酷競爭。

This YouTube video shows two dogs about to share an ice cream their owner has bought from McDonald’s.

在這段YouTube影片中,兩隻萌犬即將一同分享主人從麥當勞買來的冰淇淋。

 

As if predicting what was about to happen next, the owner implores the larger dog ‘no Cooper, let Daisy have some first,’ as the mutt attempts to steal in.

彷彿早就預料到事情發展,當大狗試圖搶先,主人懇求說’庫柏不可以,讓黛西先吃一點’。

Then she asks: ‘Why does Daisy have hers first?’

然後她問大家:’為什麼讓黛西先吃呢?’

 

Note:

dog eat dog

if a situation is dog eat dog, people will do anything to be successful, even if what they do harms other people
在一個"狗咬狗"的情況下,人們會不惜傷害他人,用盡一切手段去取得勝利。
例:In showbusiness it’s dog eat dog – one day you’re a star, the next you’ve been replaced by younger talent.
