Occupation in Seoul

Students at Seoul National University (SNU), South Korea, have taken control of a campus building for more than 100 days so far against a plan to build a campus extension.

The plans are part of a speculative property development project. The students oppose it because the process has been undemocratic and the plans put making profits before the needs of students and staff.

The action takes place in a broader context of neoliberal restructuring driven by a president who is on the verge of impeachment.

The SNU administration is threatening disciplinary action against 29 students involved.

Activists involved are asking for international solidarity for their struggle. See links below for details of how to support them.
