(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Kimchi-yeon = On the 12th, one day before the 51st anniversary of Jeon Tae-il’s death, about 300 irregular workers held candles next to Jeontae-il Bridge in Jongno-gu, Seoul and urged the abolition of irregular workers.

The ‘Joint Struggle for 11 Million Temporary Workers’ (hereinafter referred to as the Joint Struggle) held a rally urging the resolution of the issue of non-regular workers on the road near Jeontaeil Bridge from around 6 pm on the same day.

The joint struggle was initially intended to gather in front of the statue of Jeon Tae-il, but as the police blocked the vicinity of the statue with iron fences, etc., they occupied the road next to the Jeon Tae-il Bridge and held the rally for about an hour.

They said, “The regime that cried out for respect for labor responded to us with a regime that betrayed irregular workers.” They said, “I raise candles again against the regime that betrayed the candlelight orders and betrayed the workers and the people on the part of the chaebol.”

Police issued a warning to them and ordered them to disperse. There were shouts between the organizers and the police, but there was no physical clash. The road was also controlled while they held a rally while occupying the road.

The joint struggle plans to move to Cheonggye Plaza and hold a resolution meeting in front of the Blue House on the morning of the 13th.

They also held a candlelight vigil on the 30th of last month by surprise gathering at Cheonggye Plaza.
