Come Friday

About 12,000 Korean farmers took part in strident protests outside of the National Assembly Tuesday night against the proposed liberalization of the rice market (for more info see APEC Busan section below). Here are two short reports and pic from Radio New Zealand, and American Journal-Star. Farmers have vowed to continue their protests in Busan on Friday.

  1. Hope you can keep up the coverage of this and perhaps provide some of your personal insight into the APEC goings on. I'm going to try to post at least once or twice tomorrow on events in Pusan.

  2. There's some footage of Tuesday's protest in Seoul here.

  3. Also, there are a bunch of photos and video clips over at Naver; this one especially has some close ups of a certain squad in action.
