Throughout South Korea there have been numerous protests and candle-light vigils being held in many major cities including Seoul for the past few months. South Koreans have gathered to protest against the National Intelligence Services’ intervention in the presidential election from last December. According to the investigation by the prosecution the NIS agents did a large scale, online smear campaign against the opposing candidates and tried to promote the candidate of the ruling party leading up to the presidential election in December, 2012.
On July 13, there were an estimated 25,000 people, including high school students, gathering in the city square in front of the city hall in Seoul. These protestors were demanding that President Park take responsibility for the interference that the NIS, a state agency, had illegally committed during the election. In many other South Korean cities people gathered to protest.
