The Taipei City Police Department issued regulations for setting up a press zone for coverage on Jan. 1st 2015
From Jan.1 st 2015, officers should deal with the media and assemblies and parades. In the future, police are to designate a “press zone” and a “petition zone,” which in effect is a “protest zone,” for all demonstrations, which are to be divided into two stages: a “peaceful stage” and a “dispersal stage.”
After the issue released, over 500 journalists, citizen journalists and people have signed their petition against this proposal.
Association of Taiwan Journalist stated that this new regulation doesn’t aim to the journalists but to polices in Taipei City. This regulation indicates that polices can’t disperse journalists freely no matter what organization you work for.
Also, a police representative is a communicator between reporters and polices.

Let’s discuss it in today’s show.
