(Seoul, 8 November 2010) International civil society organisations, members of Our World is not for Sale1, trade unions and the international peasant movement La Via Campesina2 condemn the deportation by the Korean government of seven activists from the Philippines3 who had been granted visas. Furthermore, other progressive activists from Asian and African countries were unjustifiably denied visas.
The list of individuals, mostly civil society leaders from developing countries, prohibited from entry, was based not on concrete evidence of actual threat or histories of dangerous acts, but instead on the goal of preventing their participation in civil society events critical of the G20, particularly the International Conference organized by Put People First!-Korean People's G20 Response Action.

Two other caravans will then depart from Oaxaca and Chiapas, all converging to Cancun on December 3 for the inauguration of the Farmers's and Indigenous Camp organized by La Via Campesina.
