At 11 A.M., November 30th, Ven Misan Sunim declared his hunger strike at Paljeongdo. He explained that he started a hunger strike to make the school’s situation right and request Kim Geon-jung, the vice chairperson of GSC, to cease his hunger strike for his health.
Ven Misan Sunim said, “A student is dying at school, and I felt terrible and ashamed as a member of board of directors,” and added, “I want to take part in saving the lives of school members who are on hunger strike by stopping them. I will take their places.”
Through his letter of plea, he insisted that the chairman of the board of directors should be elected by lawful and legal procedures in order to avoid acting as a proxy. He expressed his opinion that the university is a public property, which cannot be intervened by specific groups.
He also announced he handed in his resignation to resign as a member of board of directors. The board of directors which are going to be on December 3rd would reach a conclusion on whether to accept his resignation.
