Taipei, Taiwan: A massive fight broke out recently in the parliament of Taiwan, and the things that happened there are just horrible.
Lawmakers were caught on cam throwing pig guts at each other and even got into a fistfight with each other over a new policy, which allows the United States of America to import pork and beef.
Premier Su Tseng-Chang was due to give a regularly scheduled policy report to lawmakers on the morning of Friday about the pork policy.

The entire incident was caught on cam and the results are just horrible.
President Tsai Ing-wen’s administration lifted a longstanding ban on imports of U.S. pork and beef in August.
Many saw the move as one of the first steps towards a bilateral trade agreement with the United States of America.
It is believed that the ban will be lifted in January of 2021.
The new policy allows the import of pork with residues of ractopamine, a type of drug that some farmers use in order to promote the growth of lean meat.
Thousands of people in Taipei protested the imports on Sunday this week.
