On May 19 (Saturday) 3 pm, at CKS memorial, members of the "New Taiwan Party" and the "Peoples Court" will be holding a mock court trying CKS, first calling him back from the dead. When they did this in early April at the CKS cemetary in Taoyuan, the riot police mobilized about 200 troops and arrested four people, including the man playing CKS. This time they did get a permit for the activity.
