Demonstration at Gwanghwamun

pen, pastels, 37 x 26 cm

Last Saturday I participated in the demonstration held at Gwanghwamun. I sat in the step of Sejong Performing Arts Center. People from all over the nation gathered. On the stage free speaking was on. Young, old, man, woman, students, and even Seoul city mayor Park Won-soon volunteered for the free speeches. In the middle time singers' stages made people excite. It was very impressive to hear the people's roaring from far to near. It was just like a thunder. Nobody asked to come there buying railroad tickets and renting express buses. But they flocked to let the president, politicians, and government know where the real power comes from. People began to act. The action was very peaceful but powerful in message.

지난 토요일에 광화문 집회에 다녀왔어요. 과연 근래에 처음 보는 운집에 놀랐습니다. 평화로운 집회의 진행과 협조하는 시민들의 모습에서 우리의 역량을 느꼈어요. 어두웠던 현실속에서 희망을 보고 돌아왔습니다.
