On March 18, 2014 hundreds of Taiwanese students broke into the parliament and conducted an occupation of the Parliament to protest a action by the KMT ruling party to prevent a vote on section by section of a trade agreement with China. The proposed Cross-Strait Services Trade Agreement according to the students and workers would threaten jobs of blue collar workers and small businesses in Taiwan.
