S Korean unions plan G20 protests

Seoul is to host a summit of the G20 nations, with a series of protests on workers' rights planned.


    South Korea's capital Seoul is getting ready to host a summit of the Group of 20 nations on Thursday and Friday.

    The meeting of leaders from the top developed and developing countries has always been a magnet for protests.

    South Korea's vocal trade unions are planning a series of demonstrations calling for greater workers' rights.

    But as Steve Chao reports, their collective strength has waned in recent years.
