Protest action in solidarity with the workers from Ssangyong Motors in South Korea
Today the local group of Priama akcia organized a protest meeting in Bratislava. Our members and other activists delivered protest letters to the consul Mr. Byong-do KIM. In discussion with him we expressed our disagreement with acts of Korean police and we expressed our solidarity with the workers. Mr. Byong-do KIM who is familiar with the situation promised that he would inform Foreign Ministry in Seoul about the protest.
Due to our call for solidarity the embassy has already recieved a few e-mails yesterday which was a bit of surprise for them. According to the consul negotiations between union and the company officials will start on Monday July 27 (however, according to our info it is possible that negotiations may not start because management refuses to negotiate unless the workers stop the occupation).
Priama akcia calls for further solidarity actions.
