President Moon Jae-In promised some amendments to the South Korea’s Constitution in order to improve the devolution of Korean power and strengthen guarantee human rights, after he won the presidential election in May 2017 to replace the impeached one. The South Korea Parliament has been preparing a package of Constitutional amendments. We believe that the constitutional referendum will be held on 13 June 2018.
BIKN has proposed joint petition to all the basic income supporters in South Korea from June to August this year. And we made 온국민기본소득운동본부 (meaning “Basic Income for All” Campaign Petition Headquarters) as an organization of campaign initiators. Now, we are preparing some campaign petition materials, including about 300 street banners, lots of pamphlets and some pickets.
We will run the “Amending the Constitution with a UBI” Campaign Petition from September to December this year. In 10th International Basic Income Week, there will be two street campaign days, Sep. 21st and 23rd in Seoul, Capital of South Korea. And we are going to use social media campaign and lots of street banners are also going to be hung out at various places across the country during this period.
