許多人跟我推銷服貿的好處。這不用說，某家公司80年代中就有Greater China的策略規劃---可能是北京此次服貿的參考---譬如說，想將網路業限制在福建省..... .....（30年前一流的想法，現在可能是笑話， Internet 已25歲。)

昨天聽范雲教授在行政院前的演說，希望我的綜述沒有錯誤:范雲: 馬、江負得起責任嗎；行政院情勢: 「街頭民主教室行動」打造公民社會
Taiwan Police Evict Protesters from Cabinet Building
Updated March 23, 2014 8:19 p.m. ET
TAIPEI—Taiwan's police evicted dozens of protesters from the cabinet building early Monday morning, as tensions continued spiraling between the government and students occupying two major government buildings over a controversial trade pact with China.
Shortly after midnight, police made several attempts to remove protesters who stormed the Executive Yuan—the governing cabinet's office—on Sunday evening, hours after President Ma Ying-jeou rejected protesters' demands to retract a services trade agreement signed with China in Shanghai last year.
Antiriot police, wearing helmets and clutching shields, rammed through a human wall of protesters linked arm-in-arm to block the entrance of the Executive Yuan. In the midst of the brawl, some protesters held their hands up to show they meant no harm and were yanked away by police.
Police arrested 58 people for trespassing, and a dozen were injured in the scuffle, the government-run Central News Agency reported. Police officials weren't immediately available for comment.
The Executive Yuan is a block away from the legislative building, which has been seized by thousands of students and protesters since Tuesday. Police haven't made any attempt to remove protesters there.
During a news conference in Taipei early Sunday, Mr. Ma—also the head of the ruling Chinese Nationalist Party, or the Kuomintang—said retracting the trade agreement would undermine Taiwan's credibility as a trade partner, and he dismissed concerns the deal would hurt small businesses.
"The pact must be passed for the sake of Taiwan's economic future," Mr. Ma said. He noted that Taiwan now has only seven free-trade partners, while its main export competitor, South Korea, already enjoys tariff-free treatment in more than 40 countries. "Signing free-trade agreements is an inevitable trend on which Taiwan can't afford to miss out," he said.
In a statement issued late Sunday, Mr. Ma condemned the violence and asked police to exercise all legal means to expel the protesters. He had said in his previous statements the government wouldn't evict protesters by force.
One of the student leaders, Lin Fei-fan, urged Mr. Ma to halt all eviction orders and asked protesters to fight by peaceful means.
"Don't let our hard work in the past week go down the drain," Mr. Lin told protesters. He added that the crowd that stormed the Executive Yuan did so on their own accord, and that their actions don't represent the student-led movement.
Earlier Sunday, one of the leaders, vowed to continue occupying the legislature's assembly hall until the students' demands are met. "The president has completely missed the point. Our demand is to retract the pact and establish a mechanism to monitor all cross-Strait deals in the future," said Chen Wei-ting.
The protests have been among the island's most divisive since Mr. Ma came to power six years ago, promising to build closer economic ties between China and Taiwan, former antagonists in the decades-old Chinese civil war. According to Mr. Ma's government, the pact, which focuses on services, is an essential step to further liberalize cross-Strait trade and will provide select businesses with wider access to China's market.
