Protesters in Taiwan wearing red T-shirts held a candlelight
vigil in Taipei on Sunday evening to express opposition against the
island's leader, Chen Shui-bian.
Shih Ming-teh, former chairman of the Democratic Progressive
Party (DPP), joined the protest at 8 PM, saying that the red
T-shirted protesters had opened a new leaf for the anti-corruption
campaign in Taiwan.
A protest attended by hundreds of thousands of Taiwanese took
place on the same day last year after some of Chen Shui-bian's
family members were implicated in a series of scandals.
