Battle against Samsung continues in South Korea

The protest camp outside the headquarters of the giant Samsung Corporation in Seoul, South Korea has now passed its first year. This sit-in is run by a group of labour activists. They have campaigned relentlessly to bring justice to the many workers, and their families, who have been injured or killedat Samsung workplaces due to the company’s relentless drive for profits. The company has historically been viciously anti-union with new documents showingthat this practice is still currently used by management. An international campaignis also underway to pressure Samsung to allow trade unions, while further protestsin South Korea are continuing.
