Why Solidarity is Important to Korean Farmers

Lee Gwangsuk is the President of the Korean Peasant League (KPL) in South Korea.  This interview took place on the day of a mobilisation organised by the KPL against the Free Trade Agreement between South Korea and the USA. Gwangsuk talks about why he joined the KPL, his role as President, what the KPL is trying to achieve and how they go about this.  They have had some small but significant successes at local level. This is an inspirational story about the value of peasant solidarity in facing the challenges that neoliberalism has on small scale farming.
