I don't know who to ask permission from.

There's this sad episode of history:

No one has a copy of Ha Ki Rak's book 'History of Korean Anarchism'?

I gave my copy away years ago. It wasn't great.

Wojtek, that's a horrible story.

It was garbage. It went into the dustbin when I read that Ha Ki Rak and the Federation Anarchists Korea supported the U.S. military's occupation forces brutally suppressing the 1946 general strike, which started in Taegu with railroad workers before spreading nationwide. Many strikers were literally put in corals and several were hung.

Comrades who met him in the 1980s described him (generously) as "a fool."

I think there are a few left communist and ultra-left groups in ROK, but I've forgotten my info.
