Defoliant victims demonstrate in S. Korea

Pyongyang, November 24 (KCNA) — At least 2,500 defoliant victims in South Korea reportedly held a demonstration on November 22 in protest against the authorities indifferent to their misery and sufferings.

They had been taken to the Vietnam war of aggression provoked by the U.S. imperialists. They said that not only the ex-soldiers but their children are suffering severe pain due to the aftermath of defoliant.

During the demo that lasted over 2 hours the protesters strongly demanded the U.S. and the South Korean authorities pay compensation to them for the damage done to them.

Meanwhile, the Christian broadcasting system of South Korea denounced the authorities for failing to take any measure to help defoliant victims.
