Since Red-shirt Movement in 2006, Media in Taiwan has widely used a word on many different platforms, called "Civic movement”. Civic movement is considered belonging to the value reconstruction in civil society. The goal of the movement is not only focusing on supervising the government or expressing collective consciousness, but it also puts more attention on civic culture, civic awareness and other discussions.
The number of the participants each in Red-shirt Movement (by 2006) and in Sunflower Movement (by 2014) are both more than the total population of 7%. By this data, I compare the different participation factors between this two movements.
Through the analysis of binary logit, in demographic variables, the older nationals are, the higher participation in Red Movement is, but age doesn’t arrive a obvious level in Sunflower Movement. The author here consider that is because of the trend of Internet generation and civil society. In addition, the higher education is ,the higher participation in the both movements is. On the contrary, gender doesn’t reach significant levels in this two movements.
In attitude variables, people who are toward blue party identification and unification, incline to participate in Red-shirt Movement. Moreover, people who are toward green party identification and independence, are partial to Sunflower Movement. On the other hand, People are less political trust and more civil disobedience, participating in the both of the movements more actively.
