Historic video of Ig Nobel Peace Prize-winning Taiwan legislature

September 15th, 2020

 

This historic news video comes with the description:

The Legislative Yuan of the Republic of China (Taiwan) is probably the most notable modern example of legislative violence. In the history of the Legislative Yuan, numerous violent acts have occurred during parliamentary sessions. It is popularly referred to locally as ‘Legislator Brawling’ (Taiwanese Mandarin: 立委群毆). In 1995, the Legislative Yuan was presented with the Ig Nobel Prize Peace Award, for “demonstrating that politicians gain more by punching, kicking and gouging each other than by waging war against other nations”.
