A Taiwanese activist's unusual tree-top protest went into its 11th day Sunday and Pan Han-chiang vowed to continue until a local council drops a controversial development project. 

Activist Pan Han-chiang, 46, looks down from a tree on the campus of a school in New Taipei City on April 7, 2013 where he has stayed since March 28 in protest at what he and supporters say is a controversial development project at the sacrifice of dozens of trees.
