Hunger-strikers group formed

Pyongyang, November 6 (KCNA) — South Korean people from all walks of life on November 3 formed a hunger-strikers group demanding the repeal of the fascist “security law” and the withdrawal of the U.S. forces from South Korea and entered into a hunger-strike, according to a radio report from Seoul.


The group called the all-people hunger-strikers group has members of the joint committee of measures for the guarantee of basic rights of the people and the release of prisoners of conscience as core members and embraces those who were thrown into prison under the anti-national “security law,” those who are placed under “supervision for public peace” even after their release from jail, victims to murderous torture and those on the wanted list.

The group threatened to stage a hunger-strike at Myongdong Cathedral in Seoul and in 10 other places in Taejon, Kwangju, Pusan and other parts of South Korea for ten days from Nov. 3.
