40th anniversary of Jeon Tae-il's death

A memorial to Jeon Tae-il was installed along Cheonggyecheon, near where he set himself on fire on November 14, 1970, to commemorate the 40th anniversary of his death. A statue of him was installed on one of the bridges over Cheonggyecheon in 2005, and his death was also commemorated at a pre-G20 protest a week ago.

I previously wrote about Jeon here.
