KCTU declares campaign to nullify humiliating GSOMIA

According to the south Korean online paper Voice of People, the south Korean Confederation of Trade Unions (KCTU) made public a statement on Nov. 22 to denounce the "government's" decision of extending the general security of military intelligence agreement (GSOMIA) with Japan.

The statement said all south Koreans know that Japan is pressuring south Korea with economic retaliation to neutralize the decision of the supreme court urging Japan to pay compensation to victims of forced labor, and to conceal its crimes of aggression.

The "government", however, deceived the south Korean people and surrendered to big business groups and foreign forces, the statement said.

Noting that giving military intelligence to Japan is no different from selling peace, the statement stressed that all south Koreans desirous of peace and prosperity are opposing the "government's" confrontation policy.

It declared that the KCTU will turn out in ceaseless struggle in solidarity with the people of various strata unless the authorities scrap the GSOMIA.
