May 18th Uprising Commemorative Event

KRC commemorates the 34th anniversary of the May 18th Gwangju People’s Uprising in Korea. The Gwangju Uprising gave birth to the national struggle for democracy in South Korea after decades of dictatorships.

Today, citizens of Gwangju are speaking up on the Sewol vessel sinking incident. Please join us as we reflect and discuss another tragedy that shakes Korea in the month of May. We will be highlighting aspects of the incident not addressed by mainstream media, and join a rally after the event.

Date: Sunday, May 18th, 2014, 4:00 pm
Location: KRC Office
