Taipei, March 30 (CNA) Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) leaders will attend a demonstration in Taipei Sunday afternoon to display their solidarity with protesters who have occupied the Legislative Yuan since March 18 to protest Taiwan's trade pact with China. DPP Chairman Su Tseng-chang, and his predecessors Tsai Ing-wen, Frank Hsieh and Yu Shyi-kun, as well as former Vice President Annette Lu, will take part in the demonstration in front of the Presidential Office, according to DPP sources. Chang Tun-han, a spokesman for the party, said Su will attend in his private capacity and will not make a speech, out of respect for the occupiers of the Legislative Yuan who called for Sunday's demonstration. Further, Su will wear a black shirt as the organizers have requested, Chang said. The DPP has urged all DPP public office holders who are going to attend the demonstration not to wear jests with DPP logos, nor to display DPP flags, lest they should draw attention to themselves, said the spokesman. A source at the office of former DPP chief Tsai Ing-wen said she will attend the demonstration in black shirt, and will not deliver any speech. (By Justin Su and Maubo Chang)
