Korean government must STOP persecuting its people!

Korean government must stop persecuting its people!

It is not the matter of beef import nor canal. It is about democracy. Every day people are gathering.


If there are this much people against the government policies and the support of the people to the president is lower than 17%, the government must stop whatever as the people want.

The Korean people are making peaceful demonstration – just taking a candle in their hands. And the Korean government is responding with illegal violence.


Can you see? Scores of “combat police” are treading one citizen who is not at all armed or protected.


Another group of combat police are hitting another citizen with the bat. He was hit on his back head and fell down bleeding. After he fell down and fainted, they treaded on him too.


The combat police are not sexists. They really do not care – just hit. Here a woman, a University student, was hit by the police and bleeding.

What the citizens did? They just took each candle on their hand and said that they were against the government policies. They were not armed at all.


Do you know what it is? The police is shooting so called “water cannon” with great water pressure to the citizens. Many citizens shot by the water cannon became seriously ill with hypothermia.

The police also spreaded and shot halon fire extinguisher on the face of the citizens which is very very toxic to human.

I cannot collect all the photos. I cannot tell all the  things the violent Korean combat police did even though I have whole week to say it.

The citizens were not prepared against the violence because they simply did not expect that kind of reaction from the police.

When Mr. MH Rho was the president, the police could not do such things. But MB Lee became the president and everything changed. MB Lee and some (actually many) protestant ministers said that all the people against the government are nothing but satan.

I feel like Korea stepped back to the dictator’s era – back to fifty years ago.




  1. 백악관 앞에서도 촛불집회 했다던데 혹시 그동네는 안하남?

  2. 미국이랑 영국 그리고 일부 국가의 재외국민들이 촛불시위한다는 소리는 들었는데, 여기 위니펙은 조용하네. 한국사람 자체가 그리 많지 않아서 그런지, 아니면 다들 바빠서 그런지… 내 생각엔 관심들이 없는 거 같아.

  3. This article shows just one side of current situation. First of all, violent and illegal demonstrations cannot be justified by any causes. Actually, these actions prosecute the democracy. The police should take measures to stop all these extreme acts of violence.

  4. Hey, CDKGO. Do not lie. I looked up your IP and found that your IP is Ulsan-city police department. What is illegal? If the peace demonstration is illegal, how much more illegal your violence? Know that all your illegal and immoral actions will be judged.

    If you are a real police, you have to serve and protect the people. But you did not. You are nothing but a coward.

    I welcome all the comments but not a lie. So if you lie again in my blog, I will just delete yours.

    Shame on you and know your shame. You are not police but just faithful dogs of power.

  6. I was on that place demonstrating too.
    Well, at the time I went there, there wasn’t any ‘street march’, so I didn’t experienced any of those.

    I’m a high school student. And there was alot of warnings from school that I would be expelled if I caught going there(especially in private schools… my school didn’t gave out any warnings).
    The president should realize that people didn’t vote for him because they liked him, but that they hated their former president, No Moo-Hyun.

    now, as Religious group are moving against him, he should really be careful about what he does right now.

    well anyway, I was just stopping by to find some pic. about violence in demonstrations.
