In this April 14, 1987, photo, displaced residents of Sanggyedong protest against the government for demolishing their houses in Seoul, South Korea. When South Korea previously held the Olympics in 1988, urban residents were ousted from host city Seoul after losing years-long pre-Olympic battles against government officials, police, construction workers and hired thugs, who, under a massive effort to beautify the capital, razed hundreds of poor neighborhoods to make way for new high rise buildings. Activists say there were at least 18 demolitions at Sanggyedong between June 1986 and April 1987. Injuries piled up from the clashes between residents, police and thugs. Residents’ leaders who drove the protests were repeatedly arrested for weeks and months. (Yonhap via AP)

FILE- This April 20, 2011, file photo shows some of the 30,000 solar panels that make up the Public Service Company of New Mexico's new 2-megawatt photovoltaic array in Albuquerque, N.M. Some in the U.S. solar-power industry are hoping a decision this week by President Donald Trump doesn’t bring on an eclipse. Companies that install solar-power systems for homeowners and utilities are bracing for Trump’s call on whether to slap tariffs on imported panels. The solar business in the U.S. has boomed in recent years, driven by falling prices for panels, thanks in part to cheap imports. That has made solar power more competitive with electricity generated from coal and natural gas. (AP Photo/Susan Montoya Bryan,File)
