Student-led protesters end occupation of Legislature

Taipei, April 10 (CNA) Student protesters began exiting the Legislature Thursday after 6 p.m., bringing to an end their 24-day-long occupation of the lawmaking body that they took up to show opposition to how the trade-in-services pact with China was handled.

The protesters who had taken over the main legislative chamber March 18 decided on Monday that they would end the demonstration after some of their demands were agreed to by the administration and lawmakers.
