Unsung heroes of Hanjin. Stories of final 4 defenders on crane 85.

On crane 85 of Hanjin Heavy Industries & Construction (HHIC) are final 4 defenders in the middle deck other than Jin-Suk Kim on the top. Although they are the same laid-off union members, their stories are mostly unknown masked by the heroic struggles of Ms. Kim herself. Even the agreement between National Human Rights Commission of Korea (NHRCK) and HHIC treated them lightly and the security contractors guarding crane 85 time to time block the supply of food, water, and other living stuffs to them but this thing is not usually publicized. In a recent news article (Jul. 22) in <The Hankyoreh>, however, these 4 unsung heroes are covered. Here are links to the original article and its English translation.
