    Anguished parents of the Doomed South Korean Ferry Marching to Seoul!


    As of this moment, in Jindo, South Korea where hundreds of anguished parents of the doomed South Korean Ferry have started to march to meet the president Park to make demand expeditious recovery efforts which was promised but apparently delayed to extreme. Parents and families are frustrated for four days already. With much less chance of finding their sons and daughters from the ferry, they have tried to negotiate with the Prime minister of South Korea who was on site last night. During the discussion, the prime minister was kept in a room surrounded by angry parents but later released on a condition of speedy recover efforts. As soon as the prime minister was released and escorted off the premise, the area was locked down and surrounded by hundreds of mob control police officers. Angry protesters are now sitting on the middle of bridge leading to the main land but only blocked by police barricades. South Korean medias have gone in a complete silence of this activity in Jindo, South Korea. It is worrisome that this unfortunate accident may lead to wider demonstrations and physical confrontations. Both political parties have kept silence about this badly-went-wrong rescue effort. It is apparent that the government is controlling media to prevent from further turmoil that may lead to public condemnation of the current rescue effort.
