Though not expected to win the election, the decision of the KCTU to run an independent labour political campaign is of enormous significance. KCTU launched the effort in coalition with a number of other independent popular organizations, including the National Alliance for Democracy and Reunification of Korea and Political Solidarity.

Kwon's campaign focusses on such issues as:

  • Democratization of the Korean economy in the face of monopoly capitalism.
  • Ending repression and strengthening of political democracy.
  • Disarmament between North and South Korea, and a "peoples' alternative plan for reunification".
  • Popular alternatives on ecological, gender and other issues.


People's Victory 21 has a twice-weekly newsletter in English. Here are the recent issues:
