Anti-communism rally

100,000 attend an anti-communism rally aimed toward North Korea:

About 100,000 South Koreans staged an anti-communist rally, clashing with police and burning North Korean flags to press their calls for an end to the Pyongyang regime and its purported nuclear arms programs.

The rally at Seoul's City Hall plaza drew mostly elderly people, including Korean War veterans and Christians — conservative groups critical of the conciliatory North Korea policies of President Roh Moo Hyun. The protest came amid uncertainty over the fate of talks on the North's nuclear ambitions.
