Thousands Protest G20 in South Korea


Thousands of people rallied in the South Korean capital of Seoul today against the ongoing gathering of world leaders at the G20 summit. More than 80 groups have formed a coalition to hold a parallel “People’s Summit” as the G20 takes place. The rally followed a candlelight vigil against the G20 Wednesday night.

Protester: “When we consider these G20 summits, there has been no substantial outcome. Therefore, we think the G20 summit should have a different direction to reflect the poor people, which are the victims of the global financial crisis.”
