I'm stationed in south korea right now and not more than minutes from this same plant. My boss and I drove by one day and there was somewhere around 6-8 fires going on with what seemed to be two battalions of KNP (at least 20 buses). It was quite the site. That was nearly two weeks. today 20090806, I drove by again and the police seemed to have packed up left. I heard that the plant is being liquidated.

Those Koreans have fought to the death, quite literally for their labor and political rights for decades. U.S backed dictators from the 40's till the 80's oppressed the labor unions and political organizations ruthlessly, thousands were disappeared or killed. However, they have won huge victories, and they continue to fight for more, an inspiration to us all. Soapy (talk) 15:55, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
You are out of your gourd. They are criminals who lack a fundamental understanding of how the world works. --SVTCobra 17:24, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

See in Korea people will fight for their rights while here in the US people are just passive and let themselves be doormats. Rights are gifts they are fought for and won. This is how the world works.

I love how fast this page became anti american so fast.--66.229.17.185 (talk) 20:15, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

You lost your job:

- Find a new one. - Make your own. - Bum off of someone else. - Violence.

I'd choose the first 3 any day over the last one. 71.120.114.83 (talk) 00:09, 9 August 2009 (UTC)
