South Korean farmers and activists protested against a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with China on Monday (November 30), ahead of the parliament meeting to vote on its ratification.

The protest came after both governing and opposition parties reached a tentative agreement to pass the free trade deal with China through parliament, which would authorise the expansion of relations with the country's biggest trading partner.

A small group of activists and farmers held a news conference in front of South Korean National Assembly and chanted slogans including, "stop the South Korea-China Free Trade Agreement".
