In history, there have been many protests , even when United States of America was first formed, they were able to gain their independence through protesting and basically "opposing" the British government. So in South Korea, in May 18th, 1980, Gwangju citizens protested against the government. Wikipedia Entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gwangju_Massacre
Read the Wikipedia entry.
Also read the US involvement Article: http://www.kimsoft.com/korea/usknew.htm
What I'm asking is this,
Just discuss about it...
I personally really did not like the whole ordeal. The idea actually is that (don't quote me on this but just fyi), Chun Doo Hwan actually moved against a certain type of Koreans in the area. The country is divided to states just like US except not as much. But Chun Doo Hwan came from a different state which was against the general people who came from the state he attacked. It has been for generations, but why did he do such a thing?? Just by the way Chun Doo Hwan is actually still alive and is rich off of government money.
It is clearly informed that the US was informed of the event.
