The anti-free trade was smaller than organizers had hoped, though 15,000 people did show up and cause some problems in central Seoul. The police responded in typical fashion.

I can't remember if I have noted this before, but the anti-riot police presence is very impressive in Seoul. The US embassy, for example, always has a large number of riot buses and police ready for action right in front.

One of the Fulbright scholars is researching the movement so I am waiting to hear what her evaluation of the protest was.

I have little doubt that the FTA is going to go through, however.
