Rallies: Taipei versus KL

Phang Ee Leong and Yeow Boon Kiat  |  Published:  |  Modified:

While a group of lawyers rallying to fight for freedom of assembly at Kuala Lumpur on Dec 9, Taipei—the capital city of Taiwan, on the other hand, had another rally going on as migrant workers from Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam and Philippines went on streets to plead for the rights to enjoy off days.

Taiwan has more than 360,000 migrant workers, including 160,000 domestic helpers; all of them are not protected under the Taiwanese labour law.

This is not to mention that they don’t even have the fundamental rights to have regular off days, and some are alleged not to have even a single day off for the pass three years.
