On this day in 1996, southern authorities violently stormed Yonsei University in Seoul against demonstrating students,
beating and gassing thousands. Youth called for immediate abolition of the National Security Law,
withdrawal of U.S. forces, and reunification with the north.
Students demanded to be allowed to march to the division in support of reunification,
so the government labelled the students as being secret communist agents and deployed 6,000 riot police.
By the end of the day, the entire campus was in a sea of tear gas dropped by helicopters.
