Struggle for Judging Traitor Yoon Suk Yeol Brisk in Regions of Puppets
Pyongyang, June 2 (KCNA) -- The labor circles across the regions of puppets staged a struggle simultaneously for the resignation of traitor Yoon Suk Yeol on May 31.

The struggle was attended by more than 35,000 workers of organizations under the south Korean Confederation of Trade Unions (KCTU) in Seoul, Taejon, South Chungchong Province and other parts.

14 industrial trade unions including the construction workers' union and metal workers' union held meetings in different parts of Seoul to declare the struggle for judging traitor Yoon Suk Yeol and then marched to the venue of the meeting.

The fascist police blocked the demonstration by creating a repressive atmosphere.

Following the demonstration, over 20,000 workers held a rally in the area of Sejong Road to demand the resignation of the traitor and the stop to the suppression of workers.

The chairperson of the KCTU said that traitor Yoon is a thoroughly bad egg alike in violence, suppression and dictatorship of Chun Doo Hwan, pro-business and anti-labor policy of Lee Myung Bak and incompetence, corruption and self-righteousness of Park Geun Hye.

The chairperson of the metal workers' union declared a struggle for resigning traitor Yoon, saying that "we are living in a paradise for plutocracy and a hell for the workers due to pro-plutocrats, anti-labor, dictatorship by prosecution, rule under the pretext of security and wrecking of democracy, people's living and peace within a year after Yoon took office" and "we should put an end to Yoon if we cannot live under the same sky with him. Today is only beginning. The metal workers' union will turn out in a general struggle for ousting Yoon through grand resistance of all the people in the latter half of the year."

Speakers denounced that Yoon traveled to sell the land with the diplomacy of submission and reckless remarks and he is now threatening the health and security of the people with nuclear-infected waste from the Fukushima Atomic Power Plant in Japan.

They said that the KCTU should become a hope of the struggle checking the backward and arbitrariness of Yoon-led "regime", saying that it is suppressing the organizations and rallies with which it is displeased, branding them as "illegality". They added that if degradation and arbitrariness should be blocked.

Saying that their struggle may be longer and face unexperienced suppression, they called for waging a greater, more justified and warmer struggle to oust Yoon-led "regime" which kills workers and masses with their sustained efforts.

The participants also held a ceremony of tearing up a document proving Yoon's returns in the elections of "president".

The candlelight rally for honoring the memory of martyr Yang Hoe Dong was scheduled to be held under the sponsorship of the "joint action of the labor, civic, public and religious organizations for the struggle for martyr Yang Hoe Dong" on the evening of that day, but the fascist police called out more than 80 mobile forces to forcibly disperse them.

Under the titles of "Yoon's resignation, shouts of 35,000 workers of the KCTU … police and attempt to illegalize rallies", "We can not live under the same sky!" and "Let us put an end to Yoon Suk Yeol-led regime!", the media reported that "the labor circles defended the May 31 general strike and opened a curtain in the struggle for the resignation of Yoon-led regime", "the tent was deprived but the candlelight of the memorial service was further spreading" and "the citizens who watched the situation also took part in the meeting and the venue of the meeting had no space to step in".
