Small business owners stage drive-through rally nationwide Updated: 2021-09-09 07:44:03 KST

Late on Wednesday night small business owners nationwide once again took to the streets in protest against the South Korean government's social distancing rules.
The protest took the form of a drive-through rally where business owners demanded changes to current social distancing rules that are based on types of facilities and not individual businesses.
Small business owners have been hit particularly hard by social distancing measures for over a year, with limited operation hours, forced closures, and reduced customer numbers,… to mention a few.
Police in Seoul estimated that around 120 cars had attended the protest but according to the activists' group, it was around 2-thousand.
Similar protests took place in 9 cities around the country simultaneously.
Police asked the protesters to disperse saying the protest had not previously been reported to them and will also review the situation to see if any virus prevention guidelines had been broken.
