Fri Feb 14 2014 (Updated 03/05/14) Solidarity Rally Shows Support for Korean Railway Workers Union & Calls for General Strike
Battle at SF Korean Consulate Workers and activists in support of the Korean Railway Workers Union and its jailed leaders rallied on January 17 at the San Francisco Korean Consulate. The government mobilized a counter-demonstration of retired Korean military veterans and elderly pro-government women to harass and attack the solidarity rally. They failed and the rally took place.

The solidarity rally was held to show support for the Korean Railway Workers Union (KRWU) and the call by the Korean Confederation of Trade Union (KCTU) for a general strike against union busting and plans to privatize the KORAIL public rail system. Speakers in support of the KRWU and KCTU tied the Trans Pacifica Partnership (TPP) and KORUS trade agreements to privatization and attacks on workers in Korea and the US.
