Korea: G20 Summit used as excuse for repression

The KCTU has called for international participation in a People’s Week of Collective Action protesting the G20 Seoul Summit. The Lee Myeong-bak administration is using the upcoming Summit as an excuse to strengthen repression against South Korean workers and labour unions, ordinary people and social movements in South Korea. At the same time, claiming they are "establishing public order to support the successful opening of the G20 Summit" the Immigration Service and other government agencies have been conducting a massive crackdown on undocumented migrants, during which migrants are brutally arrested, imprisoned and then deported.
