Pyongyang, June 17 (KCNA) -- Organizations of south Korea including those of religionists, women, workers and judicial officials on June 13 formed the "Citizens Meeting for Protecting Our Schools and Children" in protest against the Japanese authorities' discrimination policy against Korean schools in Japan.

At the inaugural ceremony the speakers condemned the Japanese authorities for having excluded Korean schools from the tuition-free program for senior high schools.

They termed such move an attempt to inveigle the Korean schools into the educational system of teaching only the history and language of Japan.

The formation of the citizens meeting is aimed to have the students of Korean schools receive equal education, they added.

They said the council would stage positive actions in protest against the Japanese authorities' moves of violating human rights of Koreans in Japan and discrimination policy.

They noted that they would conduct diverse activities in demand of the settlement of the issue of Korean schools including signature campaign, information service and seminar.
