On March 6, 1 367 civil groups including the South Side Committee for Implementing June 15 Joint Declaration and the People's Joint Action marched from the Ministry of Defense to the presidential mansion Cheongwadae.
After the march, they had a press conference at which they said the south Korea-US joint military exercise is just the war game against the same brethren and hostility to them. The war maneuver should be suspended and cancelled, they pointed out.
