Seongju Saad base construction equipment brought in… Police and residents repeat friction again

On the 14th, the Ministry of Defense and the US military brought additional materials to the THAAD base in Soseong-ri, Chojeon-myeon, Seongju-gun, Gyeongsangbuk-do. This is the fourth conflict this year following the last January 22nd, February 25th, and April 28th.

About 30 people, including the Seongju Residents’ Countermeasure Committee withdrawal of Soseong Lisad, came to the village hall from around 4 am on the same day and held a sit-in meeting. They protested fiercely, saying, “How can a large-scale police force be mobilized in a time when the Corona 19 incident and the busy farming season overlap?”

At around 6:50 am, the police committed about 1,500 people’s careers and began forcibly disbanding about 30 people, including residents and members of anti-THAAD groups. In the process, the residents and the police confronted each other and resulted in a conflict.

The police completed the forced dissolution in about 10 minutes and secured a vehicle access road for bringing in construction equipment and materials. In the process, it is reported that some residents and members of anti-THAAD groups were injured.

The countermeasures committee said, “It is unavoidable to prevent anger against the government of Moon Jae-in, including Prime Minister Kim Bu-gyeom, who mislead the residents of Soseong-ri, and the Ministry of National Defense. “The intention of the residents is that it is absolutely unacceptable because it is intended to carry oil.”
