The National Solidarity for the Elimination of Discrimination against Persons with Disabilities was stopped again today (3rd) at Dongdaemun History and Culture Park Station on Subway Line 4.
Around 8:00 am today, around 20 members of Jeon Jeon-yeon, who boarded the subway at Sungshin Women's University Station, tried to get off at Dongdaemun History and Culture Park Station and get back on board, but Seoul Transportation Corporation employees stopped them on the spot.
The corporation asked Jeon Jeon-yeon to stop making noise and leave, and warned several times that he would block boarding the train if he did not comply.
In response, Lee Hyeong-sook, CEO of Jeon Jeon-yeon, and members protested by shouting, "Please allow me to ride the subway. Disabled people are also citizens."
Jeon Jeon initially announced that he would resume the subway boarding protest in the Samgak area of Line 4 from 10:30 am on the same day, but suddenly changed the time and place.
On the previous day, Jeon Jeon tried to protest riding the subway in the triangle area of Line 4 from the rush hour, but confronted the transportation corporation and the police who were blocking it for about 13 hours at the station in the station.
