Against ridesharing services

Taxi drivers hold a rally at Gwanghwamun Square in Seoul, Wednesday, to call for a halt to the operation of ridesharing startup Tada, claiming ridesharing services will damage the taxi industry. Earlier in the morning, a 76-year-old taxi driver died after setting himself on fire in central Seoul, presumably in protest of such services. It was the third death of a protesting cabbie since December. /Yonhap
