Taiwan: police evict Wild Strawberries

In the early hours of this morning police forcibly evicted students from the Wild Strawberry movement [report also in Chinese (zh)] from Freedom Square in Taipei. The students had maintained a continuous protest there for over one month after an earlier protest at the Executive Yuan in response to police violence and human rights abuses during the visit of Chen Yunlin to Taiwan in early November. A group of Tibetan refugees who had been at the Square since Tuesday were also evicted.
