A group of University students held a demonstration addressing the recent, ongoing political scandal concerning the South Korean president in front of Nassau Hall on Friday at 2 p.m. The demonstration was conceived by four Korean students concerned with the current situation in Korea: Sejin Park ’18, Wonshik Shin ’19, Rachel Lim ’18, and Sally Hahn ’19. They, along with other students who have signed the declaration, articulated the group’s “Declaration Regarding the State of Affairs in the Republic of Korea,” first in Korean, then in English. The declaration expressed solidarity with Korean protestors and demanded specific actions from the Korean government in the face of the country’s political scandal. The scandal, which began in October, centers around South Korean president Park Geun-Hye and her close friend Choi Soon-Sil. Among other things, President Park has been accused of sharing presidential speeches containing confidential information with Choi, who has no government experience or clearance. Choi has been accused of using her connection to the president to pressure corporations into donating to her foundations, from which she is accused of embezzling money for her daughter’s benefit. “As we were going through the situation in Korea, we thought that we should do something about it. And we noticed that a lot of campuses, other campuses, were doing this, so we said, ‘Let’s gather people who think the same,’” said Lim. Before the reading of the declaration, handouts containing the declaration in both Korean and English were distributed to the audience of about a dozen attendees. Minsu Park ’20 started the reading of the declaration in English. He read, "we have witnessed the tragic reality that overshadows the Republic of Korea. President Park has betrayed the trust of the people by abusing the power bestowed upon her.” DoWon Kim ’18 noted the effects of the scandal on Korea’s democratic foundation. He described the group’s grievances against President Park, and expressed solidarity with Korean protesters. The group went on to list demands of the Korean government. Hahn demanded President Park’s resignation, adding that the group is “demanding the prosecution investigate the accusations of corruption in strict accordance with the law and without regard for social status.”
Hundreds of University community members, including students, faculty, and staff, held a demonstration to call for the University to become a sanctuary campus for undocumented students, faculty, and staff.The demonstration began in front of the Nassau Hall at 5 p.m. and was spearheaded by the Princeton DREAM Team, a immigrants' rights group. The demonstration was part of a larger national movement this week promoted by the Cosecha Movement, a pro-immigrants' rights organization. According to Cosecha, similar demonstrations labelled #SanctuaryMovement have occurred at around 80 different universities across the nation in the wake of the election of President-elect Donald Trump, whose rhetoric calling for undocumented immigrants to be deported has been heavily criticized. The purpose of these demonstrations have differed by campus, from general demands that the administration protects undocumented students to guarantees that universities will protect undocumented students from deportation.
