Demonstrations Continue in Protest of NIS, Government

Demonstrations were held in Seoul and other cities over the weekend in protest of NIS intervention in last year’s elections. Many are unhappy with the government’s continued stance of non-involvement as well as their continued attempts to divert public attention away from the issue.

During the open mic, many spoke about the contrast between prosecution times for the NIS and that of Lee Seok-Gi, a lawmaker of the Unified Progressive Party, who was recently charged with allegations of conspiring to stage a rebellion in support of North Korea. The National Assembly voted with an overwhelming majority to have Lee’s parliamentary immunity waived.

The UPP and many others believe the allegations were made in order to distract the public from the NIS issue.
