Signature campaign calls for abolition of “security law”

Pyongyang, November 3 (KCNA) — The National Council of Teachers for Democracy (Mingyohyop), which has been in a signature campaign since mid-October calling for the total abolition of the “security law”, made public the signature list, noting that as of November 1, some 1,060 teachers from 63 universities across South Korea took part in the signature campaign, a Seoul-based radio reported.

Mingyohyop in a statement titled “basic stand on the abolition of the security law” on November 1 demanded that the “security law” be abolished without fail as it is an evil law which suppresses the freedom of expression and thinking and defines the north as an “anti-state organization” and blocks the country’s peaceful reunification.

It declared that it would collect signatures of 3,000 teachers supporting the abolition of the “security law” until November 13 and stage a joint sit-in strike and rally for the abolition of the law with civic and social organizations.
