Madame President hit the road

Madame President hit the road

Anywhere from 60,000 to 120,000 South Koreans have protested in the streets of Seoul demanding the ouster of President Park Geun-hye.    Many of the protesters are upset at labor reforms pushed by the Park administration.  They claimed the reforms would make it easier to fire workers and benefit “powerful family-controlled conglomerates.”

The protesters in South Korea are rather creative.  They were marching down the boulevard towards Madame President Park’s presidential office.  In order to block the protesters the police blocked their path with police buses.  To prevent the protesters from climbing on top of the buses, the police coated the buses in oil. 

This did not deter the protesters because they brought along ladders to climb the buses.  To prevent from being water drenched the mob wore rain coats and used umbrellas as protection from the water cannons used by the police.  In an attempt to move the buses protesters tied ropes around the bus bumpers and proceeded to have a tug of war, people vs. the buses.

Correction:  The South Korean government is a “"unitary presidential constitutional republic."
“The President is directly elected to a five-year term with no possibility of re-election.”
