Outside the US Embassy, hundreds of Koreans protested against the war in Afghanistan today, to send a message to US president Obama, now visiting Korea, the last stop on his trip to Asia.
The rallies were precipitated by the South Korean government's recent decision to send 200 Korean soldiers and 20 police officers to Afghanistan.
On Nov. 14, the Pan-Korean Civil Society Organizations’ Solidarity Meeting against the Re-Dispatch to Afghanistan (composed of 65 civil organizations including the progressive parties and Veterans for Peace, Korea) rallied at the Seoul Station Square. Despite the coldest weather so far in Seoul this year, about 500 people participated.
