Campaign to Judge Lee Group Launched in S. Korea
Pyongyang, July 22 (KCNA) -- More than 20,000 people including opposition party members and members of the Teachers' Union and other civic and public organizations of south Korea held the second "all-people rally" for judging the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors in Seoul on July 19.

Speakers at the rally declared: People from all walks of life keep waging the movement for issuing declarations on the situation to demand the authorities roll back their unpopular policies in various parts of south Korea in the wake of the first "all-people rally" held on June 10. However, Lee Myung Bak has intensified his repressive rule, far from seeking to reach "understanding with the people."

They called upon all the progressive and patriotic forces to unite and form a front of the anti-Lee Myung Bak struggle and turn out as one in the struggle to eliminate the Lee Myung Bak conservative ruling forces, improve the people's livelihood, restore democracy and preserve peace on the Korean Peninsula.

At the end of the rally the participants staged a candlelight march to the place where the Ryongsan tragedy took place.
