South Korean workers stage big rally

For the 47th anniversary of the suicide of labour activist Jeon Tae-il, the Korean labour movement staged a massive rally in central Seoul on Saturday, November 12. At least 50,000 workers took part in this rally, organised by the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions to demand higher wages, better conditions and an end to union repression. Other unions such as the Korean construction unions have also been holding their own separate rallies. One of the main demands by workers both in South Korea and around the world (see here and here), is for the release of imprisoned KCTU leader Han Sang gyun.
Organising is not a crime! Free Han Sang gyun!
