North Korean propagandists amplify anti-Yoon protests in South

State media publishes photos of people freely expressing discontent with leader — an activity not tolerated in DPRK

North Korean propagandists are continuing to amplify protests against Yoon Suk-yeol in South Korea, publishing photos of demonstrations in the country’s most widely read newspaper on Tuesday.

The collage of 12 images from protests in Seoul on Saturday appears on page six of the Rodong Sinmun, alongside an article that seeks to paint the South Korean president as illegitimate and deeply unpopular.
