In order to advocate Taiwan’s independence and to defend the freedom of speech, CHENG Nan-jung chose to express his disappointment towards the ruling authorities by self-immolation. Thousands joined his funeral procession on 19 May. When they arrived at the presidential office, a disciplinary patrol, CHAN I-hua, lit himself on fire, taking concrete action to follow CHENG’s footsteps.
