The students and the President must be clear about one big difference between them and the President.  The President has been elected by a general vote of the people of Taiwan to act on their behalf.  The students have not.  The students have a right to be heard, but they have absolutely no legal or democratic right to replace the government that the majority of the people of Taiwan have chosen to represent them.  The people of Taiwan as elected in their government cannot obey.

When the president sells its country democracy for money, then citizen are perfectly legitimate to take the power.

The ddefinition of an "assembly" or "parliament" is the place where citizen can express.

Not the place where a president take dozens of important decisions without any vote to please its masters.

Taiwan is far more livin gdemocracy than USA or Europe country where peoples sleep.

You forgot the main definition of "democracy". Taiwanese students. dont.

Wow, abramicus you sure love to prattle. I could have stopped you in the first post. One of the key parts of democracy is of course, freedom of speech. Shut down social media and you lose freedom of speech ergo it's not a democracy. When the government starts deciding what the people can and cannot do, it's not democracy and sadly you have missed the point entirely
You know that every time I try to go
Where I really want to be
It's already where I am
'Cause I'm already there
