Background: In Seoul, South Korea, recently, Korean labourers working for the United States Armed Forces under the United Nations Command staged a further protest demonstration over pay and pensions. The men also want a revision of the security pact between the US and South Korea.
The demonstrations have followed the refusal of the US authorities to hear their demands, recently aggravated by a change in the official rate of exchange fixed by bilateral agreement with the US.
Similar protests have been staged outside American camps and base in the country.
