Michael Breen, a British journalist turned consultant, is a very keen observer of Korea. In this article for The Korea Times, he examines the history of this movement from its beginnings of a meeting of independence activists at a restaurant in Seoul to the nationwide protests which ensued. On March 1, 1911, 33 men signed Korea’s declaration of independence and sent it to the Japanese governor-general of Korea. Protests throughout the nation followed soon after, as the declaration was read in the major cities and elsewhere.
