Anti-North rally is set for the City Hall plaza
About 100,000 people will rally in the City Hall plaza at 5 p.m. today to protest North Korea’s nuclear ambitions. The demonstration will also protest Kim Jong-il’s rule and call for a strengthened alliance between South Korea and United States.
The protesters will include Kang Young-hoon, former prime minister, Chung Ki-seung, former justice of the Supreme Court, and Song Bok, a professor at Yonsei University. The Christian Council of Korea, the Korea Freedom League, and the Veterans Association are sponsors of the rally.
The groups held an assembly on March 1 protesting the North’s nuclear program and supporting reunification based on liberal democracy.
The rally will include a memorial service for the naval personnel killed in the Yellow Sea naval battle with North Korea last year.
