Protests intensified last night over controversial changes to the national curriculum. High schoolers and other students were joined by other members of the community after the Ministry of Education defied a court decision that deemed the changes illegal and insisted on rolling out new textbooks that redefine the Japanese colonial period as the period of Japanese occupation, and re-introduces a Sinocentric version of history in Taiwan. Thirty-three people were arrested, including 3 reporters after they entered the MOE building late last night. The students and reporters were handcuffed and removed from the building.
