The National People’s Action, made up of progressive organizations such as the KCTU, is scheduled to hold a people’s rally at Yeouido Park from 2 pm on the 15th.

The Confederation of Trade Unions (KCTU) announced to reporters at around 12:30 pm that day, “It will be held from 2 pm at the Yeouido Cultural Madang (Yeoido Park).”

The people’s general uprising will begin at 2 pm with slogans and will close around 3:12 pm after the declaration of the launch of the National People’s Action, the remarks of representative Roh Nong-bin, and the remarks of the progressive presidential candidates.

National People’s Action, etc. initially reported a total of 44 rallies (8013 people) throughout downtown Seoul, but the Seoul Metropolitan Government and the police considered these rallies to be ‘split-up rallies’ and banned them.

On the morning of the 15th, when the Confederation of Trade Unions (KCTU) announced a large-scale rally in the city, the police are operating a temporary checkpoint to control rally and protest vehicles on Sejong-daero in front of Seoul City Hall. 2022.1.15/News1 © News1

On this day, the police operated temporary checkpoints in the downtown area and Yeouido area to block tour buses and broadcast and stage vehicles for the purpose of participating in the rally.

As the venue for the popular uprising has been announced around Yeouido, careers in downtown Seoul are moving to Yeouido. It is expected that a total of 100 units, including 20 units in Yeouido, will gather in Yeouido.

It is said that 700 people from the National People’s Action Group gathered in Yeouido. A total of 10,000 to 15,000 people are expected to attend the rally that day.

Currently, the subway in Yeouido is operating normally. Depending on the situation, there is a possibility that the subway passes without stopping or the bus detours.

Last year, the KCTU held large-scale rallies at Jongno 3-ga, Seodaemun Station, and Dongdaemun Rotary.
