Abrogation of S. Korea′s Evil Law Urged in U.S.-KCNA

Abrogation of S. Korea′s Evil Law Urged in U.S.

Pyongyang, January 31 (KCNA) -- Korean residents in the United States and its citizens staged a demonstration outside the south Korean consulate general in Los Angeles on Jan. 24, demanding the abrogation of south Korea′s "National Security Law" (NSL).

They were members of Koreans′ organizations supporting the Joint Measure Committee for the Frustration of the Suppression of the Socialist Workers′ Federation and the Repeal of NSL which Violates the Freedom of Political Activities and Thinking in south Korea and American progressive organizations.

The demonstrators pointed out that the south Korean authorities seek to bring to the final trial seven members of the Socialist Workers′ Federation including O Se Chol, chairman of the steering committee of the Federation and honorary professor of Yonsei University.

The authorities are trying to punish those members of the Federation by invoking the NSL, a fascist law, they charged.

They urged the south Korean authorities to stop at once the suppression of the Federation, putting up the slogan "Abrogate NSL!"
