Religious groups stand united
March 16, 2010
'Leaders and believers of four major religious orders walk hand-in-hand on the riverbank of the Nakdong River, closely located to the Four Major Rivers Restoration Project construction site of the Sangju Weir, March 15. Approximately 130 participants shouted, “The river is life, the river is our parent.”
This was the first ceremony in which four major religious orders in South Korea including Buddhists, Catholics, Protestants, and Won Buddhists participated in a demonstration together and it has been interpreted as a signal that the religious groups of South Korea will become more vigorously involved in the protest against the Lee Myung-bak administration’s Four Major Rivers Restoration Project.
