Authorities' Unjust Policy toward Media Rejected in S. Korea

Pyongyang, October 19 (KCNA) -- The Press Trade Union of south Korea called a press conference outside the press center in Seoul on Oct. 17 to protest against the puppet group's unreasonable policy toward media.

Speakers at the conference recalled the fact that the authorities are seeking to give special favors to the conservative newspapers including Chosun Ilbo.

This is aimed to help these newspapers to make a monopoly of media, they charged.

The current union's struggle is to keep media from falling to possession of the monopoly plutocrats, they said, called upon all media persons to join the struggle.

Then, the organization went on a sit-in strike at the center.
