KGEU Breaking News #8                                  17th November 2004

Anti human rights suppression of KGEU by government and police

According to documents that the office of MP DAN Byeong-Ho of DLP has obtained, the Ministry of Government Administration and Home Affairs(MOGAHA) has issued a directive on "disciplinary measures concerning KGEU's general strike" to government offices and local governments.
The directive says that government offices and local government should countermeasure KGEU's strike by all means. The MOGAHA even orders local governments to take anti human rights measures like making a blacklist of those who have been actively involved in and expected to join illegal collective activities, chasing mobile phone contacts to tell where striking government employees are and questioning their colleagues and acquaintances. And in the name of securing evidences of illegal collective action, the ministry demand to form a special task force in each local government and ministries to carry out securing evidences such as taking pictures or making video records of those who are involved in KGEU's activities. The ministry even warns that those who connive and give countenance to illegal activities will be punished as well and that if those who are in charge are sluggish in proceeding disciplinary measures will be reprimanded.
This is the very evidence that the government has designed to annihilate KGEU by intention, and that the MOGAHA has abuse its authority against local autonomy to suppress KGEU. It just shows government anachronistic attitude on trade unions reminding of military dictatorship in the past.
On 16th two detectives trying to inspect KGEU's office in secret were uncovered by KGEU and KCTU members. The detectives were searching and inspecting the office inside without any warrants.

Followings are excerpt from MOGAHA's directive on disciplinary measures concerning KGEU's general strike;

Situation changed?

"What is the weapon of the workers to break poisonous laws? It is strike of workers." Who do you think said this 'slogan'? It is President ROH Moo-Hyun, as an MP actively advocating workers' interests 16 years ago. And in 1988, he initiated a revised bill of Labor Law to fully guarantee government employees' basic labour rights including right to strike. At that time, MP LEE Hae-Chan(Prime Minister now), MP KIM Won-Gee(Chairperson of the National Assembly, now), MP KIM Young-Sam(former President), and MP KIM Dae-Jung(former President) joined passing this bill. It was passed in the National Assembly, but then President ROH Tae-Woo vetoed the bill.
In 2002 as well, MP LEE Boo-Young(Chairperson of the Ruling Party, now) and MP CHEON Jeong-Bae(Floor Leader of the Ruling Party, now) drafted a revised bill of Labor Law, similar to one in 1988, to fully guarantee government employees' basic labour rights including right to strike. Then MP LEE Boo-Young said that without right to strike it could not be called trade union.
When Prime Minister LEE Hae-Chan was asked about this by MP NOH Hwoi-Chan from the DLP, he firmly answered that situation has been changed. 17 years of development for democracy from dictatorship meant nothing to him and 'situation has been changed' toward limiting basic labour rights of government employees.

- The riot cops have been deployed around all the major universities where KGEU's strike rallies seem to be held. And the police has indiscriminately questioned passers-by and those who look like striking government employees. The striking KGEU members have dispersed and gathered once a while to hold a rally. In the morning on 15th, the KGEU held a rally at Hanyang University, but riot cops swept in right away. After the rally 28 KGEU members were arrested. In the afternoon, the KGEU held a rally again in front of a bus depot, but 15 minutes later riot cops rushed there. The striking KGEU members were able to disperse successfully, but 6 members of solidarity organisation who have observed KGEU's rally were arrested. They stated that they were not striking government employees and showing their IDs but riop cops didn't care at all.
This viedo clip is on striking workers' rally and police' arrest of 6 members of solidarity organisations.
