Declaration of Assembly of Social Movements : Solidarity to KGEU


Assembly of Movements


1er octobre 2006



This declaration was adopted at the Assembly of Social Movements meeting held in Brussels, September 28th-October 1st 2006.



To Korean Government

President Roh Moo-Hyun

Cheong Wa Dae (office of the President)

Republic of Korea



As of September 28, several offices of the Korean Government Employees Union (KGEU) which is member of the KCTU, have been surrounded by the police -members of the union have been arrested ; some trade unionists have been wounded and a number of offices have been forcibly closed. This is part of a massive nationwide government crack down to force the KGEU to close down.

What is at stake is the right of workers in the public sector to have in a trade union. The struggle to assert the right to unionise in the public sector has been going on for a long time. But the repression has existed and reached a peak this month of September.

We, participants in the Assembly of Social Movements meeting in Brussels, from September 28th to October 1st 2006, express our solidarity with the KGEU.

We urge the Korean Government to cease all acts of repression against the trade union and to recognise the right of the union to exist and to recognise the KGEU.
