Migrant workers and labor rights advocates yesterday marched from the Ministry of Labor to Ketagalan Boulevard in Taipei, demanding that the government give workers political rights so that they could improve their working conditions.

The group gathered in front of the ministry at noon and started marching along Yanping N Road at about 1:30pm, playing drums and chanting on the way to the boulevard.

Demonstrators shouted “Together we live, together we decide” and “We are workers, not slaves” as they marched along the boulevard in front of the Presidential Office Building, defying the rain and cold.
