Lawmakers of the South Korean main opposition Democratic Party marched in downtown Seoul on Friday to express their strong opposition to Japan's dumping of nuclear-contaminated wastewater into the ocean.
The lawmakers gathered at Gwanghwamun Square in central Seoul, holding placards that read "Withdraw Fukushima nuclear-contaminated wastewater dumping."
The Democratic Party lawmakers marched around 5 km from the square to the presidential office, shouting slogans of "Stop marine dumping."
"At 1:00 yesterday afternoon, Japan released Fukushima nuclear-contaminated wastewater, and I came out here because I couldn't stand it now," Nam Jong-seob, a member of the Gyeonggi provincial assembly, told CNS.
Nam said the entire ocean would eventually be contaminated by the Fukushima wastewater, vowing to make efforts to prevent it by doing a lot of resistance movements.
