Nearly 250 Korean Americans took to the streets in Santa Clara, California calling for a full investigation into the ferry disaster last month, reports the Mercury News.
It was one of about 20 similar protests held nationwide a month after the disaster that left more than 300 mostly high school students dead or missing.
Protests were held in cities like Washington, D.C., New York, Los Angeles and Phoenix and organized by a group known as MissyUSA.
Demonstrators accused the government about hiding the truth and covering up safety violations and what they consider to be a botched rescue.
South Korea’s President apologized for the disasgter and took responsibility, saying the Coast Guard failed in its rescue mission.
