South Korean people’s action against the planned US deployment of THAAD that disturbs peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula and the northeast Asia is getting fiercer.
The chairman of the Seongju Committee for Struggle against THAAD Deployment, at a rally held under the sponsorship of the People's Emergency Action for Resignation of the Park Geun-hye Regime on April 1 in Seoul, said that the Seongju inhabitants have conducted uninterrupted action since Seongju was chosen as the site for THAAD deployment, adding that the US is not a friendly nation but the occupying nation.
During the rally, the participants shouted “Stop illegal introduction of THAAD”, carrying balloons written “No THAAD”.
The Seongju Committee for Struggle against THAAD Deployment, the Gimcheon Citizens Measure Committee against THAAD Deployment and other organizations called a press conference on March 28 to urge the "National Assembly" to halt the deployment of THAAD.
Speakers said that some equipment for the deployment of THAAD was introduced into south Korea even before the site for the deployment was offered to the US forces, adding it is all illegal actions.
The "National Assembly" together with “Constitutional Court” should put brake on the government’s unilateral decision to introduce THAAD, they contended.
Noting it is an illegal act that the ministry of national defense is going to deploy THAAD without consensus of the people, they should saddle the minister of national defense with responsibility for the projected deployment of THAAD, they said.
They contended that the NA should form an ad hoc committee at once to demanding the disclosure of information by all means and opt for comprehensive verification.
At the end of the press conference, the members of the organizations presented a paper signed by more than 6 200 citizens to the NA, demanding a stop to the deployment of THAAD.
On March 29, inhabitants of Seongju county of North Gyeongsang Province sent away the trucks loaded with equipment for the deployment of THAAD on the road leading to the Seongju golf course when the south Korean authorities had sent them.
The south Korean authorities, trumpeting about “importance of security”, are getting frantic in their move to deploy THAAD.
The above-said fact shows the south Korean authorities keen on introducing THAAD for the sake of interest and security of the US and inter-Korean confrontation, are a perfidious group.
