  • Description

    HUNDREDS OF STUDENTS STAGED A PROTEST AGAINST JAPAN-SOUTH KOREA TALKS IN SEOUL ON SATURDAY. THE YOUNG DEMONSTRATORS SCATTERED HANDBILLS AND THEN CLASHED WITH RIOT POLICE ON ONE OF THE MAIN STREETS LEADING TO THE PARLIAMENT BUILDING. ABOUT TEN PEOPLE WERE LATER ARRESTED BY THE POLICE WHO SUBDUED THE RIOTERS IN ABOUT TWENTY MINUTES.

    THE DEMONSTRATION FOLLOWED AN OPPOSITION RALLY HELD TO DENOUNCE PRESIDENT PARK'S GOVERNMENT'S POLICY OF ESTABLISHING BETTER RELATIONS WITH JAPAN. FORMER PRESIDENT PO SUN YUN WAS AMONG OPPOSITION SPEAKERS WHO ACCUSED THE GOVERNMENT OF "HUMILIATING DIPLOMACY" TOWARDS JAPAN. IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE RALLY ENDED, A YOUTH CLIMBED UP ON TO THE SPEAKERS' PLATFORM SHOUTING SLOGANS. THESE INFLAMED THE STUDENTS AND POLITICIANS AND SEVERAL HUNDREDS OF YOUNG PEOPLE THEN LED THE MARCH ON THE CAPITOL BUILDING.

    THIS WAS THE FIRST DEMONSTRATION IN SEOUL SINCE THE PARK GOVERNMENT WAS SWORN IN LAST DECEMBER. UNAUTHORISED DEMONSTRATIONS ARE STRICTLY BANNED BY THE GOVERNMENT.
