Anti-war protest banned in South Korea

3 March 2007

The South Korean anti-war movement is appealing for support in its campaign demanding the right to hold an anti-war demonstration on March 17, as part of the global weekend of action on the anniversary of the US-led invasion of Iraq.

The government has banned the protest.

Korean Action against Dispatch of Troops to Iraq, an anti-war coalition comprising 351 organisations, is calling on international anti-war and pro-democracy groups to send letters of protest to, and organise demonstrations outside of, the South Korean consulate or embassy in your country.

Messages of solidarity can be sent to antipabyeong@empal.com.

More extensively on this in this press release.
