Action for the right to live

The Joint Action Headquarters for Increasing Public Pension in south Korea made up of more than 50 government employees and teachers organizations held a large-scale rally in Seoul on March 28 to denounce the puppet forces for working hard to retrogressively revise pension for government employees.
Attending it were more than 80 000 government employees and teachers from across south Korea.
At the rally, speakers condemned the Park Geun-hye regime for working hard to make a reform of pension for government employees aimed to cut down their pension.
They cannot remain a passive onlooker to the end of the workers' life caused by Park Geun-hye, they said, calling for turning out with strong resolution in the action to judge the present regime.
They also called for eliminating a handful of conservative ruling forces and plutocrats and protecting people's right to existence through the anti-"government" actions.
At the end of the rally the participants waged a demonstration in protest against the unpopular rule of the Park Geun Hye group, holding placards written “Defend people’s right to live”.
They declared that they would never stop their actions until their demands are met, shouting slogans such as “Raise public pension” and “Stop retrogressive revision of the pension system for government employees.”
Meanwhile, the Pusan Headquarters of the south Korean Confederation of Trade Unions (KCTU) held a rally at the plaza of Pusan Railway Station on March 25 at which they accused the Park Geun Hye regime of working hard to turn work sites into those of part timers under an unreasonable pretext and stamp out the labor movement.
They noted that now the workers are under critical situation and they would launch an action for the workers and people.
At the end of the rally the participants staged a demonstration, chanting slogan “Step down the Park regime killing all workers”.
The south Koreans’ wrath against the ruling quarters, who are lining their pockets without regard to what the working people may think, are higher.
