Muju Protest

Pyeongchang County Korea has been chosen as the candidate for the 2014 Winter Olympics.

On December 23, the Korean Olympic Committee (KOC) held a standing committee; and chose Pyoengchang County, in a choice between Pyeongchang and Muju, by a unanimous vote.

The KOC will present Pyeongchang County as the single candidate to the general committee on December 29.

Muju is objecting to the decision quote:

"We can’t obey KOC’s decision"

150 officials of Muju, who had cancelled the standing committee of KOC on December 21 by occupying the meeting room, held a protest demonstration on December 23 again.
