A protest against hundreds of layoffs at the Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction in Busan turned ugly at the weekend as protesters, including many Catholics, tried to gain entry into the company’s shipyard.

Around 50 people were arrested and dozens injured on Sunday after police used water cannons and tear gas to disperse the protesters who sat down in front of the shipyard gates after being denied entry by the police.

The Catholics were among thousands of people who joined striking workers to demand Hanjin abandon plans announced in December 2010 to lay off 400 employees.

Many of the protesters had arrived on Saturday from around the country on 185 “Buses of Hope.”
