The rally itself was a strong manifestation of our willingness not to give up our struggle until the government meets our demands.
Because we’d to learn, that behind the opposite police station around 100 immigration officers were hanging around, we finished the rally after 45 min and just wanted to take our buses back to Myeong-dong. But the immigration officers had supposed another plan: just they wanted to arrest us, nothing else. So, while we left the rally place to get our buses waiting just some meters away 200 riot cops tried to block us and made the way free for around 100 immigration officers, drawn together from Seoul, Uijeongbu, Incheon and several other cities around Seoul, attacked us from left, right and back. They were trying to get so much as possible prisoners from our group. But because of the strong efforts of our supporters [Democratic Labour Party, Socialist Party, KEB Credit Card Union members, Hitech Korea Union members, Ji Min-joo, protest singer Yeon Yeong-seok, Norae gongjang (Song Factory) member’s, Kwon Yeong-joo, student solidarity groups like SF and NOHAK etc./ THANX A LOT TO THEM!!] our enemies were able to get only one of our struggling members – Gupta from Nepal. Partly it was our mistake that they got him and we’ll learn from it. Of course he is now also included in our demand to release migrant workers activists from detention centers!
