DP pays respect to Jeju uprising victims

Rep. Lee Nak-yon (C), chairman of the ruling Democratic Party, visits the Jeju 4.3 Peace Park on the southern island of Jeju on Feb. 28, 2021, amid the National Assembly's recent passage of a special bill aimed at compensating and honoring the victims of the Jeju April 3 incident. The conflict, which started off as a brutal crackdown of suspected communist sympathizers by the then government of Rhee Syng-man in 1947, ended with between 25,000 and 30,000 civilian deaths, about 10 percent of Jeju's population.
