In the years since the Sunflower Movement, one has indeed seen a sharp rise in political demonstrations seeking to occupy the Legislative Yuan in hopes that occupying the Legislative Yuan will allow for their demands to become widely known in Taiwanese society in similar manner to the Sunflower Movement’s opposition to the CSSTA. This echoes criticisms during the movement itself that occupying the Legislative Yuan would lead to political groups of any stripe attempting to storm the Legislative Yuan in order to try and push through their partisan demands.

This occurred regarding the high school students demonstrating pro-China textbook revisions in August 2015, during which several attempts to storm the Legislative Yuan took place before an eventual occupation of the Ministry of Education followed the pattern established by the Sunflower Movement. But it is also while such criticisms were expressed by Ma Ying-Jeou (馬英九) of the KMT, but the KMT and pan-Blue would later itself become a group which has frequently sought to occupy the Legislative Yuan in order to try and make its political demands widely known in Taiwanese society. This has occurred for a wide range of issues, ranging from American pork imports to pension reform for former public servants, members of the military, and teachers.
