General Strike Thursday

The KCTU is set to begin a nine-day general strike Dec 1st in protest of the government's labour reform plan. Here's a short story on it at today online. Check in here for further updates.
Update -- here is a good story that sets the tone a night before the strike. Seems the FKTU and KCTU have split over the issue, but the KCTU is enjoying support from farmers and teachers' groups. You can also see my older article on the issue here.
