Why Should We Pay the Price of Failed Global Economy?

A [well-padded] protester is apprehended by riot police during an anti-government rally supporting Ssangyong Motor workers near the automaker’s main plant in Pyeongtaek, about 70 km (40 miles) south of Seoul July 29, 2009. Ssangyong Motor, maker of sport utility vehicles and 51 percent owned by Chinese automaker SAIC Motor Corp, secured protection under court receivership in February and has called for more than 1,000 workers to be laid off, triggering protests from the labour union. Thousands of protesters held the rally denouncing the police’s plan to evict the unionists on Wendesday from the plant, which about 600 striking workers have been occupying for over two months.
