Kill Bills

Adjust

From actions taken during legislative sessions by members of Taiwan’s parliament between 2001 and 2021.

Tore up proposals
Unplugged loudspeakers to prevent the passage of bills
Sprayed members of the other party with water
Threw water balloons
Threw food and lunch boxes
Threw paper and trash cans
Threw chairs
Threw pork guts
Engaged in a fistfight with members of the other party
Punched and pulled the hair of another legislator, sending her to the hospital
Wrestled other legislators to the floor
Headbutted other legislators
Chewed up a proposal and refused to spit it out
