***COOL VIDEO*** ANTI-COMMUNIST DEMONSTRATOR BURNS N. KOREA FLAG IN SEOUL/ARREST SCENE
Independent (S. Korean) website ^ | 20 August 2003 | AmericanInTokyo

Posted on 08/20/2003 7:20:55 AM PDT by AmericanInTokyo

Demonstrations against Communist North Korea and Kim Jong-il are increasing in S. Korea by patriotic and pro-Bush/pro-America S. Koreans. This is despite a crackdown by the liberal, appeasing government of Roh Mu Hyon, the leftist Minjudang Party.

One such tactic of recent has been very public displays of hatred toward the North Korea regime, such as the burning of the DPRK national flag.

Here is a short streaming video at 200k (through the conservative Chosun Ilbo newsite) showing a N. Korean flag burning and arrest today near the S. Korean "White House" in downtown Seoul.

Cut and paste this URL and view:

TOPICS: Crime/Corruption; Culture/Society; Foreign Affairs; Front Page News; News/Current Events; War on Terror
KEYWORDS: activism; anticommunist; arrest; backlash; dprk; effigies; flagburn; freeper; kimjongil; korea; nkorea; northkorea; nukes; probush; prousa; pyongyang; seoul; southkorea

The detained, arrested and fined patriotic, pro-USA demonstrator (photo) heads an anti-Kim Jong-il group in S. Korea similiar to the "FReepers".

He was outraged at President Roh Mu Hyon's quisling 'apology' yesterday to North Korea that certain South Koreans citizens were burning North Korean flags and defacing effigies of dictator Kim Jong-il.

One can see the secret police of S. Korea run by the Clintonite/Appeasing No Mu Hyon, taking the anti-communist demonstrator away after his brief effort to barbeque the national symbol of the D.P.R.K.

My dad owned one of those flags. It was given to him by a survivor of the Frozen Chosun.

Another thing you'll never see on ABC World News Tonight.

Burning the Stars and Stripes - OK.

Burning the symbol of an oppressive communist regime - Not OK.

People have been burning the commie DPRK flag right and left in Seoul these days. It is encouraging.

Last one burnt was several Saturday's ago in front of 10,000-15,000 anti-North Korea people in Seoul City Hall square.

little news trickles out of the Peoples Paradise. what news there is, shows a general crackdown on the Workers Party, but by and large the people are hopeless and beginning to think, 'what the hell'. many are risking crossing into China now or down through China into Thailand through Laos, etc. it is a reply of Eastern Europe, when Austria said they would allow East Germans to transit through their land to West Germany if they could make it through Hungary....which eventually is what happened. then, the regime fell. the real beauty in all of this will be (hopefully) to bring down the Korean Workers Party and Kim Jong il in Pyongyang without a shot. one can only hope (and work) toward that end!

Thanks for the ping.

It seems the Free world learned absolutely nothing from the appeasement policies of the 30's.

It seems to me the SKs could do with a bit of first-hand news from the Communist paradise.

I don't think this regime will go quietly...the danger is that a barrage of Seoul is ordered..you'd need an awful lot of troops to disobey orders...more plausible is that someone close to KJI decides to take him out, then makes himself the head guy..tries to negotiate witht he US

My, you should have seen President Roh (S Korea) on TV yesterday apologizing for some of his fellow citizens burning DPRK flags and defacing photos/posters of Kim Jong il.

It is the only thing that caused the DPRK to reconsider and send their atheletes and beautiful female spies en mass to Taegu today for the Universiade college athletic games. Roh's speech was pathetic. Every bit as caving and sellout as Kim Dae Jung before him.

Sounds like he would have made Neville Chamberlain proud.

Makes me sick to see the Free World leaders kissing these dictators a$$es!

A $75 dollar fine for burning the flag of a nation who's avowed goal for the last fifty years has been to conquer and enslave your country? Now THAT'S a law to be proud of.

Seriously, I can't wait until North Korea is liberated, and these spineless, cowardly liberal politicians have to face their newly freed countrymen. How do you look those people in the eye and tell them that you knew all along how evil the DPRK was, but you were so afraid for your own skin that you prevented the people from speaking out about it?

Just saw this at Japan Today. Ishihara's a jerk but sometimes he gets it right.

Tokyo gov't chases Chongryon over taxes


Thursday, August 21, 2003 at 06:37 JST
TOKYO — The Tokyo metropolitan government on Wednesday sent a follow-up notice to a group of pro-Pyongyang Korean residents of Japan demanding it pay real estate tax for its head office in the capital, metropolitan officials said.

The metropolitan government intends to seize the land and building of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) in Chiyoda Ward if the group does not pay the tax within 10 days of the follow-up notice, the officials said. (Kyodo News)

WOW. GN, that is great news. What balls of steel. [Tokyo] Governor Ishihara is right on this issue. I don't see any other politician in Northeast Asia in power really taking the Northies on in this way. This goes to the heart of their money laundering operation in Tokyo, Japan that they cannot afford to lose! Tax 'em to death. Otherwise, seize their properties (when they go over to seize they better take 500 riot police in full body armor, IMHO,) as well as intelligence specialists from the Prime Minister's office to go over all their incriminating ELINT and HUMINT stuff they will invariably find over a Chongryon in Chiyoda Ward.There is a particularly NASTY DPRK espionage nest also in Hakusan on Hakusan Dori just north of Korakuen, in Tokyo, I'd also like to see them take out.)
