The CBCK Committee for Justice & Peace (President: Most Rev. Matthias Ri Iong-hoon) held its plenary meeting at the conference room of the CCK on December 11, 2013. After the meeting the committee expressed its concern for the current social issues in Korea.

 

The committee stressed the preferential choice for the marginalized in our society. In concrete, the committee expressed its solidarity with the dismissed workers of the SSangyong Motors as well as the villagers of Milyang protesting the construction of high-tension transmission towers. In this regard, the committee decided to spend 57,227,506 KRW (ca. 55,000 USD) for the needy including the dismissed workers of the SSangyong Motors. The committee also decided to ask the government to reconsider its energy policy heavily based on nuclear power generation. The committee decided that it will promote activities to inform the faithful on the facts about the nuclear power generation.

 

The committee confirmed the close connection between evangelization and the true development of human society in the light of Evangelii Gaudium. In this regard the committee did not hesitate to point out the wrongdoing of the government in regard to the 2012 presidential election.
