Taiwan lawmakers force way into parliament after opposition occupies chamber
Lawmakers from Taiwan's ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) broke through barricades at parliament on Monday (June 29) erected by the main opposition Kuomintang (KMT) who had occupied it to protest against government "tyranny".

Taiwan is a rambunctious democracy and fights and protests inside the parliament building are not uncommon.

More than 20 KMT lawmakers occupied the legislature overnight on Monday, blocking entry to the main chamber with chains and chairs, saying the government was trying to force through legislation and demanding the president withdraw the nomination of a close aide to a high-level watchdog.
