A mass rally in South Korea is being staged against a raft of government policies which locals say weakens democracy.
Tens of thousands of protesters trooped out to express their thoughts through the protest and about18,000 police have been deployed in the capital, Seoul.
Left-wing critics say this will lead to a whitewashing of past South Korean dictatorships.
Park Geun-hye, the country’s first female president, was elected two years ago.
She is also pushing through controversial moves to make labour markets more flexible by giving employers more leeway in dismissing workers.
About 60,000 people took part in the first rally, with saw violent clashes between protesters and police.
