Pyongyang, June 30 (KCNA) — Kang Wi Won, chairman of the fifth-term South Korean Federation of University Student Councils (Hanchongryon), started a hunger strike for an indefinite period in prison, urging the “government” authorities to stop defining Hanchongryon as “organization benefiting the enemy” and legalize it.
In this connection a society of supporters for Kang Wi Won made public a statement, a South Korean newspaper reported.
The statement contended that to crack down upon Hanchongryon just means to kill universities and the future of the nation.
The “government” should stop the suppression of Hanchongryon at once, it urged, calling upon people to join in the righteous struggle for legalization of Hanchongryon.
