<font color=red><font size=4><b>LAST WEEK’S STRUGGLE REPORT (Seoul, 10.26)</font color></font size></b></a></p><br>

The last week passed more inconspicuous, beside our strike still is going on.<br>
On Tuesday, 10.19 some of the striking workers from Geumgang pharmaceutical factory learned together with some of our comrades from two student supporters revolutionary expression dances.

As you can see it was a kind of funny.<br>
On Thursday the activists who are defending their basis of existence in downtown Seoul’s Cheongjin-dong made a protest pick nick on the street in front of Jongno-gu (district) office.<br>

The construction mafia want to tear down the whole area between Jong-no and Jongno-gu office…<br>

...and later much more (<a href="http://poverty.jinbo.net/bbs/zboard.php?id=freeboard&page=1&sn1=&divpage;><font color=orange><b>here</font color></b></a> you can see a photo report about it).<br>
On Thursday evening MSSC had the weekly struggle rally in Myeong-dong.<br>

</p><br>
About 100 supporters, mainly students and some construction workers union activists, joined the event.<br>
On Saturday many people protested against the National Security Law. In the afternoon about 40 political veterans and 120 young people started a demonstration in Daehak-no and marched to the area near Kyobo B/D, downtown Seoul. There the cops provoked again, like on several demonstrations before, with blocking the final marching point. So the stage, a cultural festival was planned here, had to be built one block before the official place.<br>
During the early night about 5000 people – mainly supporters of so-called “national liberation” political wing ("left"wing nationalists, but not really progressive) - gathered there, followed the program… and clashed at least twice with the large units of riot cops. An article in Korean about the event you can read <a href="http://db.voiceofpeople.org/new/news_view.html?serial=14841";><font color=orange><b>here</font color></b></a> (there you can watch also three videos about the event).
Of course all these days MSSC members were preparing for ETU-MB’s General Assembly, held one day later, Sunday, 10.24 in the Kunkook University.
Here a majority of the ETU-MB members accepted the 2003/2004 activities and financial report and elected a new leadership. Understandably here is not the right place to report more in details.<br>
That day was also the day number<br>
<p align=center>

of sit-in strike.
After the General Assembly we’d a beautiful getting together until the late night and we promised that the we will strengthen our struggle and in the near future the enemy will be surprised, believe it!
