Now south Korean people are asserting that American THAAD deployment would generate nuclear war concern, adding THAAD cannot be deployed in any parts of south Korea.
Inhabitants in Seongju County and Gimcheon City of North Gyeongsang Province held a joint rally in Seoul on September 8 in protest against the US moves to deploy THAAD.
In the middle of the rally the participants headed for the US Embassy to thrust a written protest to it despite police's suppression.
The protest letter said that they are all against the THAAD deployment across south Korea.
The residents of Gimcheon hold a candlelit demo and protest take place in 50 cities at the weekend, the protest letter noted.
He called for the people to block the deployment in unity with Seongju and Gimcheon inhabitants.
At the end of the rally the participants visited the bereaved families who were staging a strike in demand of the probe into the truth about ferry Sewol disaster at the Gwanghwamun plaza, and encouraged them.
Prior to it, inhabitants met with the representative of the Minju Party and noted that the on-going action is the issue on which hinges the right to existence. They said they would turn out in the drive for a total cancellation and reexamination of the plan for deploying THAAD.
The Action for Checking THAAD Deployment held a press conference outside the National Assembly on September 6 accusing the NA of sidestepping the issue of deploying THAAD.
The authorities are insisting that THAAD deployment is aimed to cope with the "north's nuclear and missile threat" but it has already been proved through the reports of the US Department of Defense and Congress that THAAD is ineffective in light of the topography of the Korean peninsula, the organization charged.
Opposition to THADD deployment is just the action against war and for the pullout of the US forces from south Korea. (4)
