The Gyeonggi Provincial Medical Association held an emergency representative meeting in the conference room on the 3rd floor of the Gyeonggi Provincial Medical Association Building in Giheung-gu, Yongin-si for about 3 hours and 30 minutes from 4 PM to 7:30 PM and made this claim.

About 40 people attended the meeting, including the presidents and executives of 31 cities and counties in the province, the executive branch, and representatives of the Gyeonggi Provincial Medical Association.

Participants wore bands with phrases such as ‘Withdraw the package to eliminate essential medical care’ and ‘Oppose the expansion of medical schools in ruins’, and hung banners with the same content throughout the conference hall.

They read the resolution in the conference room and said, “The government’s unfounded populist policies are at risk of destroying the future generation’s medical field. The medical community is increasing the level of struggle against this, but the government is accepting resignation letters, collective action, and collective action.” “They are committing atrocities that would only be committed by a dictatorial government, such as banning all leave of absence,” he emphasized.

He then urged the government to completely nullify the policy to increase the number of medical schools and reconsider from the beginning.

Participants raised their voices, saying, “The government must immediately stop the unconstitutional and anti-human rights oppression and intimidation of medical staff, including medical residents and medical students, who will be responsible for the medical care of future generations,” and “The government must engage in sincere dialogue with the medical community.”

He also argued that officials from related ministries, including Minister of Health and Welfare Cho Gyu-hong, should take responsibility for the current situation and resign immediately.

At the same time, he said, “The 25,000 members of the Gyeonggi Provincial Medical Association will launch an all-out struggle if the above conditions are not accepted or if even one of the junior doctors suffers related damage,” adding, “We will launch a campaign to defeat the ruling party candidate in the April general election.” “We will continue group action, including a complete hiatus,” he said.

Participants ended the first part of the meeting by holding pickets and shouting slogans such as ‘Stop increasing the number of medical schools.’

In the second part of the meeting, which was held privately, future collective action policies were discussed.

The Gyeonggi Provincial Medical Association decided to continue the struggle to cancel school hours, which has been ongoing every Wednesday in front of the Presidential Office in Yongsan, Seoul since November of last year.

The plan is to increase the intensity of the struggle by encouraging officials from all 31 city and county medical associations in the province to participate in the Gyeonggi Provincial Medical Association’s half-day suspension rally scheduled for the 21st.

We also plan to increase the intensity of our struggle in the future by raising support funds for residents and medical students in the province.

Meanwhile, the Korean Medical Association’s ‘Emergency Response Committee to Block the Increase in Medical School Capacity’ (hereinafter referred to as the Emergency Committee) also held its first meeting at the Yongsan Medical Association Hall in Seoul this afternoon.

After the meeting, the medical association emergency committee announced that it would later decide when to initiate collective action through a vote by all members.

Kim Young-jun, chairman of the Gyeonggi Provincial Medical Association, said, “We will discuss with the emergency committee of the medical association later to decide on a more specific collective action policy,” and added, “We will actively cooperate with the emergency committee of the medical association and strive to achieve change.”
