Over 100,000 people took the streets of Taiwan's capital Taipei on March 31, 2014. They are protesting against the ruling party's push for a trade pact with China, which they say will hurt the island's economy. Protesters dressed in black and carrying sunflowers to symbolize hope – protested in one of the largest demonstrations in recent years. The island of Taiwan split from China over 60 years ago after a civil war.
