Dear comrades,

I am honored to extend my warmest greetings of struggle and solidarity from Seoul. Tu-jeang!

Today workers and people in Korea walked out to protest the government's attack on human and trade union rights, quality public services and democracy on the last day of the Park, Geunhye administration's first year.
The government want to celebrate its first aniversary, but people are crying out "After one year under Park government, we can't stand it anymore!"

KCTU members, together with broader social movements inclusing peasants, the urban poor, small shop keepers, students and youth staged a rally in Seoul and major cities in each province.

During our struggle at the end of last year and early this year, a lot of organizations in different countries showed their strong solidairty. We were very moved and found that we are not alone.

I believe that struggle against the labour repression, privatization and for real democracy is common among workers around the world. We are already united in the same struggle and it is workers in struggle who will win!

Today's action in SF were reported in our rally in Seoul. Once again I extend my gratitude for your solidarity! Tujaeng!

In solidarity

Shin, Seung-chul
President, KCTU
