Unquenchable Campaign

Unquenchable Campaign
An all-people action for peace was staged in Seoul on June 24 to protest the US THAAD deployment, under the sponsorship of the Action for Checking THAAD Deployment.
Attending it were thousands of inhabitants from Seongju County and Gimcheon City of North Gyeongsang Province and other parts of south Korea.
Speakers at a rally said the present "government" should inform the US of the will of the south Korean people opposing the deployment of THAAD as befitting the "government" established by the candlelight resistance.
It stressed that its deployment is an illegal deed as it failed to go through legal procedures and public discussion.
They urged US President Trump, who made a litany of balderdashes with respect to reexamining the environmental influence on the area, to withdraw THAAD from south Korea.  
They chanted slogans “Withdraw THAAD from the Korean Peninsula! No THAAD, Peace!” in the rain.
At the end of the rally, the participants marched through different streets to surround the US embassy in human-chains.
They surrounded the vicinity of the US embassy and held a rally, blowing their whistles.  
They tore placards depicting the US President with THAAD and a roll of money in his mouth to pieces. 
They urged the "government" to attach priority to the people's peace, security and basic rights and resolutely reject the unjust deployment of THAAD by the US, expressing their will to carry on the struggle until THAAD is withdrawn from south Korea.
