Blogs Blogs Blogs

A few good blogs on Korean politics, social movements, and migrant workers have recently come to my attention. These ones are noteworthy for their more intimate relation to these topics.

Nobarie's blog is an English blog by a Korean speaker who is involved with the migrant worker's movement. It's a new blog, but it looks like it will grow to contain a mix of translated articles on migrant workers and other topics, as well as Nobarie's own thoughts and posts on these matters. I'm looking forward to reading more.

Christian's blog has been one of my favorites for a long time. Mainly because this guy seems to go to a protest or rally in Korea every single day and he takes lots pictures. Christian is a non-native english speaker, in fact he's a German emigre living in South Korea, but his posts are always interesting, and though some may find his politics contentious, it is certainly genuine. He's also documented the migrant worker struggle extremely well.

Kotaji's blog contains his thoughts on the Korean peninsula, North East Asia, history and other things. It's a quite a good blog, written from London, that also tracks developments in Korean social movements in the news as well as other major events, sort of like we do, but with his own particular choice of events -- definitely a blog to keep an eye on, especially for some of the bigger political events on the penninsula.

I'm putting all this in out links section to make them easier to access. If anyone knows any other good blogs in English about Korean social movements, then please post a commet.
