DPP presidential candidate Frank Hsieh [謝長廷] and running mate Su Tseng-chang [蘇貞昌]
Yesterday evening I attending the rally at Zhongshan Stadium commemorating the 61st anniversary of the 228 Massacre. The atmosphere of the area was absolutely incredible. After I grabbed a few snacks and checked out the memorabilia tables I met up with bloggers Craig Ferguson and David Reid who were arriving from the event at Freedom Square. We walked around the packed stadium taking photos and talking to people.
After Craig left, David and I went back into the stadium to hear Su Tseng-chang and later Frank Hsieh speak. Their speeches were in Hoklo Taiwanese. Luckily, a kind couple sitting behind us provided a translation for a portion.
As the crowds thinned towards the end, we rushed the stage to get a closer view shortly before Hsieh and Su left. The event concluded with a wonderful performance by Amis aborigines.
