Members of the Samsung service workers chapter of the Korean Metal Workers’ Union and other labor activists sleep outside Samsung Electronics headquarters in Seoul’s Seocho district as part of an outdoor struggle, May 22. The general strike started on May 19, two days after one member committed suicide on May 17. The suicide was in protest of suppression of the labor union by Samsung, calling for workers to be paid a living wage. (by Lee Jeong-yong, staff photographer)
I've just started reposting here after a nine month absence. Look for some nice changes to the site and regular updates on U.S. intelligence, privatized spying, Korea, Japan and music. My pages section at the top (just below that incredible photo from South Korea in 1960) includes links to much of my work on Korea, Japan, etc., over the years. Meanwhile, follow me on Twitter @TimothyS and read my blog at TheNation.com.
