The 45th candlelight rally and demonstration calling for ousting traitor Yoon Suk Yeol took place on a large scale in Seoul on June 24.
The candlelight rally, attended by tens of thousands of people from all walks of life including workers, peasants, students, religionists and citizens, was held on the theme of "Let's change our world by our own hands!"
Prior to it, there were meetings of civil society organizations including the Confederation of Trade Unions in different parts of Seoul.
Speakers at the meetings said that they cannot let Yoon Suk Yeol go scot-free as he is making the people tremble with fear of war and committing fascist oppression upon the masses and that only when they overthrow the Yoon regime, can the masses breathe.
Speakers said at the rally that people are coming to Seoul on Saturdays from Taegu, Taejon, Kyonggi Province and other regions to call for ousting Yoon Suk Yeol.
They recalled that martyr Yang Hoe Dong set fire to himself for the stop of suppression of workers like martyr Jon Thae Il who had done so shouting "Worker is also a human being". Scores of years have passed since Jon's death but the workers are still targets of suppression as ever, not being treated as human beings, they said, adding they would light their candles and shout for the resignation of Yoon on Saturdays without fail, rain or shine.
The participants staged a demonstration, holding large placards and posters reading: "Candlelight wins! Let us overthrow the prosecution-based dictatorship!", "Let us drive out Yoon Suk Yeol and stop the war!", "Saturday is the day when we beat Yoon Suk Yeol down!" and others.
A candlelight rally was held in Kunsan, too.
At the rally, hosted by the "Kunsan candlelight action", speakers said that the people's anger would immediately and surely oust Yoon from power.
