Picture of the Day: Students Protest NIS

A female student chants protest slogans as she is rounded up by police during a demonstration in Seoul on June 21, 2013. A national association of collegians said it is filing a prosecution petition against the National Intelligence Service for breaching the election laws by intervening politically in last December’s presidential election to sway public opinion in favor of the ruling party candidate. The association also accused the intel agency of defaming university students by claiming that their demand for reduced tuition fees was politically motivated. [Yonhap]

    Where did they protest “in Seoul”? Was it the same place as the last time they demonstrated for lower tuition, in the general vicinity of the US Embassy?
    Why did they bring their protests to that area instead of to their college campuses or Korean education offices?

    Is that the woman from the “What kind of Asian are you?” video?
