This is a Mediahacker.org podcast - It’s Saturday, August 8 2009. Yesterday the 77-day occupation of the Ssangyong automotive plant in Pyeongtaek, South Korea, by striking workers was broken by a final, violent police assault. I spoke with Loren Goldner on Friday about the situation, which received little attention in the US corporate and alternative press. He was speaking to me from New York City. This interview may be freely re-broadcast.
