I will believe this when i see it.

South Korea farmers and factory workers, known to have staged violent demonstrations in the past, pledged Monday they will hold peaceful protests during the free trade agreement (FTA) talks here this week. “We will stage demonstrations in a legal way, and no violence everyone is worrying about will occur,” said Oh Young-teak, vice president of the Korea Government Employees’ Union.

 

Maybe they can look into more imaginative ways to protest that don’t involve spear charges or jumping into the sea (at least they used life jackets).

More than two hundred farmers from the Korean Peasant League (KPL) jumped into the cold water of Hong Kong harbour to reach the Convention Centre where the Ministerial Conference is deciding their future.

  

I thought this Phillipines protestor was quite visually impressive from the anti-WTO protests in Hong Kong.
