Since the end of last year the Korean people is struggling to prevent the in that time planned war against Iraq. In the beginning, the first anti-war demonstration took place last autumn (pict. 1, 17), only few hundred people joined the demonstrations. During the protests against the USFK the anti-war movement was very active in this movement (pic. 6, 7).

Since the beginning of 2003 the South Korean anti-war movement was increasing. Like on the demonstration February 15 (pic. 18, 27) some thousand demonstrators took the streets of Seoul.

Beginning with the evening of March 20 the Korean anti-war movement rapidly decrease. Some times more then 10.000 people protested against the U.S.-led aggression.

Especially after the Korean public had to learn, that the gov’t wants to send Korean troops to support the aggressors the outrage against this plan was enormously.

Thousand of people - workers, students, migrants and artists (p. 15, 23, 31, 32, 24, 10) - demonstrated against this plan. And even the cops got more and more violent (pic.32/2003-04-12) the anti-war protestors promised not to give up until the occupation isn't finished.
