AAJA Seoul invites members and friends to a tea talk with Rep. Jung Cheong-rae of the main opposition Minjoo Party of Korea.
He delivered a speech of 11 hours and 39 minutes on Saturday in protest of the ruling party’s push to pass a government endorsed anti-terrorism bill.
Now he has a record for the longest speech in Korean parliamentary history.
We will get to hear his view on filibuster and the anti-terrorism bill which he thinks will threaten personal freedoms and privacy if passed into law.
Admission is free for members and 5,000 won for non-members. Interpretation will be provided.
When: 10am March 1 (Tuesday)
Where: Newsbacker’s Office, 3rd floor of Insadong-gil 15-3, Jongno, Seoul (Opposite of Starbucks in Insadong)
