Korean Independent Media Outlet Threatened
MediAct in Korea has long worked as a vital role to support alternative and independent film and video production, a critical citizens’ media monitoring movement, and a trade union movement from within the media since the late 1980s wave of democracy movement in Korea.
However, in the past two years, the mediascape and culture sector in South Korea has undergone some drastic changes under the Lee Myung-bak regime/New Right that has taken power as of 2008.
Now MediAct is facing the crisis of shut down with the massive and target-oriented budget cutting by Korean government. Thus, we need the international voices to condemn Korean government's all-pervasive oppression to the independent media environment in Korea.
Join us, support MediAct, stop the rise of New-Right dictatorship!
