From the Margins: militant workers struggles and repression in S. Korea

Blog posts reflect the views of their authors.

From the Margins radio presents:

Monday February 14th, 8pm on CKDU 88.1FM

A radio piece about a group of Korean labour militants, members of the Socialist Worker's Alliance of Korea, who are facing serious jail time for participating their roles as militatn workers.  Originally, they where going to be sentenced on Jan. 27, however sentencing has been pushed to Feb 18th.   This was partially due to e-mails sent by folks from around the world to the militants lawyer. Additional letters of support via their lawyer can be sent to swlk@jinbo.net.  

The show will feature interviews with Oh Min-gyu and Oh sei chull from the Socialist Workers League of Korea, American activist Loren Golder from Insurgent Notes, and Dal professor Mi Park.

For more information and updates see the From the Margins website:



About From the Margins:

FTM operates on the understanding that social problems are mainly rooted in the socioeconomic system, capitalism, through which social relations are controlled. The show features live and recorded interviews, recordings of presentations and all that good stuff. For the most part, the show focuses on local / regional issues, but will venture outwards in the case of events that resonate nationally / globally, such as the economic crisis and international workers' struggles
