South Korea: Students Voice Dissent Against Korea Railroad's Mass Layoff

South Korea's state-owned railway operator, Korea Railroad Corp., has laid off an unprecedented number of more than 7,600 workers [ko] within a week as it decided to set up a subsidiary for new high-speed train operations, which critics call ‘a prelude to privatization of the national rail system'. Inspired by students at the Korea University in Seoul who posted on their school's offline bulletin board a message criticizing the government's such decision– a longtime symbol of students’ dissent, many universities have followed the moves and posted similar messages on their respective school bulletin boards. A Facebook page entitled ‘안녕하십니까‘ [ko] (meaning hello/how are you? in Korean) was set up to share images of those bulletin board messages posted in their universities. The page was set up on December 12 and it has already received more than 41 thousand likes.
