South Korea: Blogger fired for blogging about Dokdo

Gerry-Bevers from Occidentalism was informed by the university for ending his contract because of his active blogging about Dokdo's history and Korea and Japan territorial debate. The letter said: “I think there is little doubt that the school made this decision because of the Dokdo problem.”
