Korean Government repression against migrant workers

The South Korean government has declared a concentrated crackdown on undocumented migrant workers from October to December 2009. During this time the government will conduct raids throughout the country, arresting and deporting as many undocumented migrants as possible.

This is not only an attack on undocumented migrants but on all migrants in South Korea. Among documented migrant workers there is no one without a friend or relative who is undocumented. The government's measures provide an excuse to the police to increase surveillance, investigation and attacks on these and other migrants, irrespective of their status. Read the full story here.
