In front of The Student Union Hall at 13:30 on November 1, 2016, the three main agents of SSU, namely, General Student Association, Faculty Association, and Labor Union, announced the declaration of the state of affairs concerning the recent political corruption of the Blue House, demanding a thorough investigation of the case. Due to what is called "Choi Soon-sil Gate", the people's faith toward the current government has been completely destroyed. Under this circumstance, a lot of universities published the declaration of the states of affairs, and large-scale protests to demand the departure of President Park Geun-hye have been held across the nation.
The main content of the declaration is as follows: “The corruption of President Park Geun-hye and the invisible power behind the president must be investigated without any sanctuary. For this purpose, the prosecution, not the president who is responsible for the scandal, has to conduct a special investigation that the people want. The president must cooperate with the prosecution in order to restore political order.”
