Thanks to the commenters on that last post, especially the one that alerted us to videos of the protests/marches that were on the Taiwan Youtube site. There were two that we found, embedded below. The first one is just a short clip of people walking around during the day. The second is from Xujiahui in the evening, with more chanting, from the evening of January 6. Oh yeah, and to the commenter who mentioned that we ought to put “alleged” in front of “health effects”, you’re probably right. If you’re interested in learning a little about what health effects maglevs might have on people, you could try this Google scholar search. No definitive answers, but maybe a rudimentary way of glimpsing what is out there.
In the meanwhile, a blog devoted to the anti-maglev cause has even been started. It includes an English translation of a story that appeared in Wenhui Daily on the protest.
