Yesterday ETU-MB organized a charity concert for Ratan Bapary, a migrant worker from Bangladesh. Last year he’d an accident and since this time he has to be in hospitals for several treatments and operations. Because of his “illegal” status here he has also no insurance for medical treatments. The costs of treatments are very high and of course he cannot pay for this. So ETU-MB got the idea with the charity concert. Together with Korean students, Democratic Labor Party and the Bangladeshi community they organized the event. More than 200 mainly migrant workers from Gyeongi-do enjoyed performance in the auditorium of Jinjubeub, a industrial area north east of Seoul.

As introduction ETU-MB condemned the unsocial ruling labor system in South Korea especially for migrant workers. The local representative of Democratic Labor Party Baek Hyeon-jong demanded equal labor and human rights for Korean and migrant workers. He added that the case of Ratan Bapary shows very impressive the inhuman conditions for migrant workers in South Korea.

In the following concert the audience was able to enjoy music and dances from Nepal, Bangladesh and of course from Korea. Students presented revolutionary dances, Yeon Yeong-suk his protest songs and Cheonjiin Band made a great performance with hard rock music. All together a very wonderful and impressive afternoon full with the spirit of unity and solidarity between the Koreans and migrants!
