Synopsis

On 3 September 1986, the Taipei District Court disregarded LIN Cheng-chieh’s legislative immunity and sentenced him to eighteen months in prison on charges of defamation. LIN decided not to challenge the ruling; he broke through police barricades and angrily threw a bell towards the presidential office, signifying the death knell of justice. He then began a 12-day protest on the streets.
