An ordinary person, in an ordinary society, was forced into disobedience, and as a result, she has endured much pain and suffering. In November 2008, a storm called the “Red Martial Law” stunned the whole Taiwanese community who believed they were living in a “democratic country”. The arrival of the Chinese envoy, Chen Yunlin, sparked civil unrest — the national flag of Republic of China was confiscated, the voices of dissent were muted, the protesters were removed and President Ma became “You.” As time passes, this collective memory has gradually faded from the public’s mind. The ruling party has become more and more powerful and democracy is increasingly threatened. However, there is still a group of people engaged in legal action, civic education and social movements who keep fighting to resist the fall of democracy, fighting for the right to protest, fighting for the right to civil disobedience! This documentary, Civil Disobedience, records the events of civil unrest following the “Red Martial Law” in 2008. It tells the story of the abuses suffered by civilians in the hands of the authorities, of how state power has rapidly advanced to undermine civic rights and it investigates the problems of being educated to be “obedient.”
