Gwangmyeong 6 Protest Camp

Resurrection City: The Scale of Seoul's Urban Renewal Process

Gwangmyeong 6 Protest Camp

Elderly evictees hung out in a makeshift shelter created from discarded materials, mostly doors, from around their former neighborhood. The area was demolished in anticipation of increased housing demand due to the newly opened Guangmyeong Station nearby. These protesters wanted to negotiate with the redevelopers for better compensation.
