Not news to anyone here, but I just wanted to pass along this photo that I noticed on Korea Beat:
I'm kind of afraid to turn on the computer tomorrow morning to find out what happened. You know this isn't going to turn out well, and I'm sure Aesop has a fable about times like this.
One more, with plenty of more to follow tomorrow on the usual news sites:
* Update 1: Matt from Gusts of Popular Feeling stayed up late on a school night to put together a very nice recap of the events in cities nationwide. There are some other photos of the rally in Gwangju here and here and a couple of bad shots of the rally in front of Suncheon Station here. A lot of teachers from my school attended the all-night protest. "It was a lot of fun," my coteacher reported. Here's one participant in Suncheon's rally last night:
I don't understand how some people maintain that these rallies aren't about the Mad Cow scare and that young people aren't being coerced into attending. Perhaps I'd be less flabbergasted if there were nationwide protests on something not directly related to my country, who knows, but I do know that mobs of angry Koreans make me uncomfortable. Of all the things to get worked up about . . . seriously, of all the things to get worked up about, somehow it came to this.
