  • Description

    MORE THAN 50,000 SOUTH KOREAN LABOURERS HELD AN ANTI-NORTH KOREAN RALLY AT NAMSAN IN SOUTH KOREA ON SATURDAY. THEY WERE PROTESTING AGAINST RECENT NORTH KOREAN INTRUSIONS INTO THE SOUTH AND, IN PARTICULAR, THE UNSUCCESSFUL ATTEMPT TO ASSASSINATE PREMIER CHUNG HEE-PARK.

    AT A MASS RALLY, THE LABOURERS ADOPTED A RESOLUTION STRONGLY OPPOSING THE SERIES OF NORTH KOREAN INTRUSIONS AND DEMANDING THAT THE SOUTH KOREAN GOVERNMENT TAKE A FIRMER ATTITUDE TOWARD NORTH KOREA.

    BEFORE THE RALLY, AN EFFIGY OF PREMIER KIM OF NORTH KOREA WAS BURNT TO CRIES OF "DOWN WITH NORTH KOREA" AND "DOWN WITH KIM, NORTH KOREAN PREMIER."
    THE RALLY WAS ONE OF SEVERAL HELD IN SOUTH KOREA IN THE PAST TWO WEEKS, FOLLOWING THE INFILTRATION OF 31 NORTH KOREANS INTO THE SOUTH ON JANUARY 31ST. AND THE SEIZING OF THE AMERICAN SPY SHIP, PUEBLO, TWO DAYS LATER.

    IN AN EARLIER DEMONSTRATION, IN THE SOUTH KOREAN CAPITAL OF SEOUL, A CALL FOR RETALIATION AGAINST THE NORTH WAS MADE.

    THE UNITED STATES HAS ALSO COME UNDER ATTACK FROM THE DEMONSTRATORS, WHO HAVE CLAIMED THAT THE AMERICANS HAVE BEEN MORE CONCERNED WITH THE PUEBLO INCIDENT THAN THEY HAVE BEEN IN COMBATING INFILTRATION FROM THE NORTH.
