general strike is on

Even though it has been declared illegal. Here's the first story about it.
Update: numbers are diminishing in the general strike: read more here.

Update 2: In another article, the KCTU said 60,000 people, or 10% of its membership, have taken part in the strike; the government estimate is quite smaller.

More than 10,000 striking unionists staged a rally in front of the National Assembly in Yoido, Seoul, [Thursday] afternoon to protest the bill and call for more rights for non-regular workers.

Footage of this demonstration can be found here, and over at his blog, Christian has a very long video of the protest, which can be found here.
