Join the Campaign to Stop U.S. Aggression on the Korean Peninsula - send photos by 3/21
The International Action Center is supporting this campaign called by
the Korea Alliance of Progressive Movements! We urge you all to
do the same!
Stand for Peace on the Korean Peninsula!
On the sixtieth anniversary of the signing of the 1953 Armistice
Agreement that temporarily halted but did not end the Korean War, the Korea
Alliance of Progressive Movements calls upon allies around the world to stand
for peace on the peninsula!
Sanctions against North Korea and annual U.S.-South Korea joint
military exercises are clear signs that the Korean War—a war that left
over four million dead and one in three Korean families divided—is not
over. We ask you to take five
minutes and join us in solidarity not only against the
U.S.-South Korea joint military exercises and against
North Korea sanctions, which only harm the North Korean people,
but also for peace talks. Our goal
for our “I Stand for Peace” photo campaign is to get at least 200
supporters in the United States (and 1000 in Korea) to commit to the
1. Take a photograph in
either a public space or a place in your daily life holding a sign with the
following demands written on it:
c. End the Korean War! (and/or)
Peace on the Korean Peninsula
2. By this Thursday, March 21, post a picture
on your Facebook wall, Twitter account, or any social networking site that you
are a part of.
3. Also by March 21, send your photo
in jpeg format to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we
can compile it into a mosaic to be used at press events (attached is a sample
mosaic) in South Korea.
Our goal is not just to create a powerful symbol of solidarity to
use in our press events but also to awaken people to the ongoing
60-plus year fight for peace and reunification. We have had six
decades of a precarious stability marked by military
conflicts. Now is the time for peace!
Through this campaign, we aim to counter the false belief that the
peoples of the United States and South Korea support joint military exercises
and a punitive sanctions regime that harms the North Korean
people. Together, we stand to say, “I Stand
for Peace on the Korean Peninsula!”
