LAST WEEK’S STRUGGLE REPORT (서울 11.15)



First of all the National Union of Civil Servants decided to go on strike from today.

But let’s start from the beginning. On Monday, 11.8 in Uijeongbu, a industrial town north of Seoul, the National Federation of Street Vendors (NFSV) held a marathon demonstration to protest against the last attacks against their members there by criminal gangs, hired by the Uijeongbu municipal “authority” drive them away from the market place.

Short after dusk masses of riot cops started to attack the rally – the crowds were increasing to tenth of thousands demonstrators, what was leading to a long hard street battle between mainly angry peasants, workers and students on the one side and the cops on the other.

On the end there were no winner, but Seoul’s mayor Lee Myeong-bak, who ordered the “embellishing” of City Hall Plaza against the will of the majority of Seoul’s citizens, possibly was shocked over the sight had to see after the battle. Articles in Korean you can read here and here.

Of course the program of the culture festival, thousands of workers and their supporters participated, was just great, but much greater was the coming together with the Korean comrades all night long after the program on the stage finished. It’s just a beautiful tradition you find just in S. Korea (here and here you'll find Korean articles and videos about the event)

The definite highlight of this week’s struggle was yesterday’s General Workers Rally held between Sejong-no and Millennium Plaza on Jong-no. According to Jinbonet news about 100.000 workers (Minjong-ui Sori/Voice of the People reported 60.000) and their supporters participated. Here on the rally the general strike of government workers to demand the basic labor rights was declared under the frenetic rejoicing
of the masses.

After the peaceful end, according to Yonhap news agency 9.000 riot cops were in readiness, of the rally hundreds of workers went to the direction of Seoul National University because they expected the gathering the to start the general strike. But the cops were faster and were already on the subway exits near the university.

Next stop was Shinchong’s Yonsei University. Here the road was blocked by activists and hundreds of workers streamed in the university. In the stadium 2.000 workers and some hundred students opened the struggle season.

Usually universities are safe places for striking workers – the government declared the strike as illegal – and a taboo zone for the riot cops. But since the 2002 elected president Roh is on “power” also university areas are not safe anymore, just remember the last year’s railway workers strike. Just some hour after the railway workers union decided to go on strike, the decision was made in Yonsei University, about 10.000 riot cops stormed the campus and arrested by using excessive violence 1.700 union activists (an article about that you can read here). So, as you can see, the situation is dangerous! JUST SHOW UP YOUR SOLIDARITY! Korean articles about the current strike and yesterday's activities you can read here, here and here,
