The Government and Ruling Party Must Stop Unconstitutional Ban on Nighttime Rallies.

Following National Police Agency Commissioner General Yoon Hee-geun’s policy suggestion (May 18) to unconstitutionally regulate rallies, the government and ruling party announced this morning (May 24) that they plan to revise the Assembly and Demonstration Act to ban nighttime rallies and restrict commute-time rallies for groups with a history of illegal rallies. We cannot help but be shocked by the government’s blatant attempt to push through unconstitutional legislation restricting the fundamental freedoms of assembly and association that are the foundation of democracy and to introduce a permit system for rallies and demonstrations that are prohibited by the Constitution.

So the government should answer why Myanmar’s ambassador to South Korea was invited to a promotional event for arms exports

The government of the Republic of Korea should answer why Myanmar’s ambassador to South Korea was invited to a promotional event for arms exports. The government should now have a proper explanation and apology to the Myanmar people. It’s the least moral thing for the Myanmar people who are being killed, detained, and tortured by the military junta.
