Mass protest in Taiwan over young conscript's death

Taiwanese protesters hold placards during an anti-military rally in front of the presidential office in Taipei, on August 3, 2013.More than 100,000 Taiwanese people took to the streets Saturday in protest over the death of a young conscript who was allegedly abused in the military. Singing a Taiwanese take on the revolutionary song "Do you hear the people sing?" from the hit musical "Les Miserables", protesters rallied at a square near the presidential office in Taipei, mostly dressed in white -- a colour symbolising truth in local culture.
