TAIPEI, TAIWAN - MARCH 30: Over two hundred thousand protesters attend the rally called by the student groups occupying the Legislature Yuan on March 30, 2014 in Taipei, Taiwan. Taiwanese student protesters opposing to the contentious cross-strait service trade agreement with China call for a huge weekend rally filling Ketagalan Boulevard leading from the Presidential Office to the Legislature Yuan to increase pressure on President Ma Ying-jeou.

30年前你們守護我們 現在換我們守護台灣(中英日三國語言字幕版)
親愛的長輩們
30年前你們守護我們
現在換我們守護台灣

現在這個影片有中英日字幕版了,希望大家可以把這個影片分享到全世界,我們想要讓我們­的「長輩」或是「大人」看到,提醒他們當初台灣的民主是怎麼爭取來的,我們不是暴民,­我們現在正在做的也不是破壞,我們只是為了守護他們當初努力出來的民主成果。

此片謹獻給每個正在為了台灣的民主自由奮鬥的年輕學子,希望獨裁不要再度成為事實..­….

Some things from the YouTube “About” section:
A version of the video with Spanish translation is can be viewed here (FB)
The first half of the video was directed by 羅景壬 and the news footage is from NextTV news. This video’s director thanks NextTV for providing fair and neutral reporting, otherwise they would not know where to find footage showing the truth.
The video is was made by 洪馬克, a director and script writer. His facebook page is Kosang.MarkAng and the teaser to his short film 替生 (Replace) can be seen here (YouTube)

A bit more info about the first half of the video: it is part of a campaign commercial for DPP candidates 謝長廷 (Frank Hsieh Chang-ting) and 蘇貞昌 (Su Tseng-chang) from the 2008 presidential election. The whole commercial can be seen here (YouTube)

I really hope the beginning of the video can show everyone how far Taiwan has come in terms of freedom and democracy (and why the violence of March 24 pushed it back many years). Since the commercial was made in 2008, a 20-something then was born in 1980s (more accurately 1985, based on the description of the events). Think about that when the video describes historical events, what was allowed, and what was not allowed, based on the child’s age.
