Korean workers stage another general strike

The embattled and scandal ridden government of President Park Geun-hye attempted to stop the planned general strike by Korean workers by declaring any strike action by workers as illegal. On the 30 November, over 200,000 workers demonstrated in central Seoul in a strong and defiant protest against the continuing attempts by the Park administration to attack and weaken the workers’ movement. While President Park has stated that she will consider resigning, another huge protest occurred in Seoul on Saturday 3 December.
