Veteran Groups Continue Protesting Against Creation of Jeong Yul-seong Historical Park
Gwangju City, South Korea – The controversy surrounding the creation of the Jeong Yul-seong Historical Park has escalated as veteran groups enter their third day of protests. The Association of Military Survivors and the Association of Widows held a press conference in front of Gwangju City Hall today, emphasizing their disapproval of the project and demanding its withdrawal from the city.
The main point of contention for these groups is the historical figure Jeong Yul-seong, who played a pivotal role in the establishment of the Korean People’s Army March. They believe that Gwangju is not an appropriate place to honor a communist hero and have called for the termination of the Jeong Yul-seong project. Instead, they propose the creation of a Veterans Park to properly honor military veterans.
Tomorrow, the protest will continue as demonstrators gather at Gwangju City Hall and then proceed to visit the Jeong Yul-seong Street Exhibition Hall in Yangrim-dong, Nam-gu, as well as Jeong Yul-seong’s birthplace in Bullo-dong, Dong-gu. It is at these locations where the memorial project for Jeong Yul-seong is being advanced.
