On the 2nd, when the National Solidarity for the Elimination of Discrimination against People with Disabilities (Jeon Jang-yeon) took the first subway ride of the year to secure a budget for the rights of people with disabilities, the Seoul Transportation Corporation held a ‘non-stop route’ in the Samgak area of Subway Line 4. The corporation, which rejected the court’s mandatory mediation plan, also announced additional civil and criminal lawsuits. With the suspension of the cargo union strike at the end of last year, the ruling party’s stance is strengthening against the protests of the socially disadvantaged.
At 3:02 pm on the same day, when operators from Jeon Jeon-yeon tried to board the platform in the Samgak area on Line 4, the train headed for Sookmyung University passed by without stopping at the station. This is the second non-stop trip through the triangular area following the 14th of last month. From this day, Jeon Jeon tried to protest by riding the subway for 2 days and 1 night, and the employees of the Seoul Transportation Corporation and the police stopped him, and several clashes occurred.
Jeon Jeon started a propaganda campaign on the way to work in Samgak area from 8:00am. When the activists tried to board the train at around 9:12 am after announcing a press conference, the police riot police with shields blocked the entrance of the train. The corporation told passengers early, “Currently, the Jeon Jeon-yeon subway ride protest is underway on Line 4. Train operation on Line 4 may be delayed for a considerable amount of time, and depending on the situation , it will go through the station without stopping.”
The corporation sent out broadcasts urging Jeon Yeon-yeon to turn at intervals of 30 seconds to 1 minute. Jeon Jeon-yeon protested, saying, “Let me ride the subway,” and Park Gyeong-seok, CEO of Jeon Jeon-yeon, said, “I’ll stay here until I get to the subway.”
Another clash broke out as activists from Jeon Jeon Yeon tried to board the train again at 2:50 pm One non-disabled worker at the Evada Independent Living Center for the Disabled was pushed by a construction worker and taken to an ambulance with minor injuries.
The corporation, which reacted strongly to the subway ride protests, also announced additional legal action. From January 2021 until today, a total of 82 subway protests by Jeon Yeon-yeon are the target.
The corporation also rejected the mandatory mediation offer recently presented by the court regarding the civil lawsuit filed against Jeon Yeon-yeon. The mandatory adjustment plan states that ‘the corporation must install elevators in 19 stations by 2024’ and ‘Jeon Jang-yeon pays 5 million won to the corporation for every 5 minutes delay in train operation due to protests on the way to work’. Regarding this, the corporation said, “After careful consideration and consideration of various circumstances, such as the inconvenience to users due to illegal demonstrations and the damage suffered by the corporation, we have confirmed our position that we cannot accept the court’s mandatory mediation plan. ” Jeon Jeon-yeon had announced the day before that she would accept the compulsory adjustment plan.
The police announced on the same day that they had sent 24 activists from the Jeon Jeon Yeon, who had been delayed on their way to work because of the subway protests, to the prosecution on charges of obstructing general traffic and hinder business. A police official said, “The Namdaemun Police Station in Seoul is investigating a total of 30 cases and 29 people.”
