Hong Kong: Taiwan protestors show their support

As Hong Kong's Occupy Central movement continues, the people of Taiwan are watching it very closely.

The island's relations with China have greatly improved in recent years but there are growing fears amongst some Taiwanese people that Beijing will eventually take back the island it still claims as its province, and that Taiwan would lose the democracy it has spent decades fighting for.

Cindy Sui has been at the rally and spoken to Taiwanese students about why they feel it is necessary for them to show support for Hong Kong's protest movement.
