Jeon Jeon-yeon “Only propaganda on the platform at Hyehwa Station”
Mayor Oh also met with other disabled groups
The National Coalition for the Elimination of Discrimination against People with Disabilities (Jeon Jang-yeon) has decided to stop protests on getting on and off the subway until a plan to guarantee the right to move for the disabled is prepared through dialogue.
In a commentary on the 26th, Jeon Yeon-yeon said, “I welcome receiving the private interview and the public interview from Seoul mayor Se-Hoon Oh,” and said, “We will ensure that a social solution can be derived through detailed working level consultations on the disclosure approach.” He also said, “Until we find a solution through dialogue, we will only proceed with the subway propaganda campaign on the Hyehwa Station platform without going on the subway.” The meeting between Mayor Oh and Jeon Jeon-yeon was scheduled for the 2nd of next month.
The Seoul Metropolitan Government said this morning, “I proposed a private meeting with Jeon Jang-yeon, and the meeting was agreed upon as Jeon Jang-yeon responded.” The city of Seoul said Mayor Oh instructed Jeon Jeon-yeon to offer an “unconditional private interview” and “the format of the interview should no longer hold back citizens on their way to work, and the private interview is also part of gathering various opinions for ‘goes with the weak’, because you can see it. The city plans to hold exclusive meetings with Jeon Jeon and other groups for the disabled on an exchange basis.
On the 20th, Jeon Yeon-yeon resumed the subway commuting protests, which had been temporarily suspended since the 4th, in the Samgak district of Jung-gu, Seoul, and Shinyongsan Station. This is because the Seoul Metropolitan Government rejected Jeon Yeon-yeon’s request for an individual interview while promoting joint interviews with other organizations for the disabled.
