“The darkness has never won against the light.”

June 30, 2008

As we reported the other day, the National Action Week against the South Korean government’s publication of guidelines on U.S. beef imports witnessed a lot of pain, suffering and blood on the part of peaceful protesters.

In response, about 300 Catholic priests and 200 nuns took to the street on Monday, and held a public protest Mass in central Seoul:

The priests and nuns called to the government for renegotiating over U.S. beef, firing Uh Chung-soo, the head of the National Police Agency, and releasing all the citizens arrested so far. And they called to the citizens for maintaining the principle of nonviolence.

Quoting John 1:5, they declared that “the darkness has never won against the light”. Tens of thousands of citizens attending the Mass burst into applaud and cheers in agreement.

Upon finishing the Mass and the ensuing protest march, some of the priests began a fasting protest at Seoul Plaza:


Also, the priests announced their plan to hold a protest Mass everyday at 7:00PM at Seoul Plaza.
