Peace Treaty Now!
We, Korea Peace and Unification Action of Boston rally for a lasting peace on the Korean peninsula. Come and join us to talk about peace, reconciliation, disarmament in Korea.
Standout for Korea Peace: 5pm to 6pm, Park Street Station
Reportback by Keumjoo Armstrong on her summer visit to Korea: 6pm to 7pm, Encuentro 5, 9A Hamilton Place, across the street.
We Korean Americans applaud the success of the US-North Korea Summit in Singapore. We extend our deepest gratitude to President Moon of South Korea, President Trump and Chairman Kim of North Korea for their openness and resolve that the threat of war can be removed from the Korean Peninsula. Our hope is for the step by step peaceful reunification of Korea. We urge President Trump to continue to pursue a “maximum engagement” policy with North Korea. Now is the time to move forward implementing the Joint Statement of the Singapore Summit!
Sign a peace treaty with North Korea! After the Korean War the US and North Korea signed an armistice in 1953, a compromise that resulted in decades of military tension on the Korean peninsula. Now is the time to declare an end to the Korean War and replace the armistice with a peace treaty between all participants in that war which killed 4 millions Koreans.
We demand complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. Denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula means not only eliminating North Korea’s nuclear weapons but also denuclearizing the land, air, and seas of the entire peninsula. Both the US and North Korea should ban the testing, production, reception, possession, storage, stationing, and/or use of nuclear weapons on the entire Korean Peninsula. Getting rid of nuclear weapons should proceed step by step in coordination measures to remove sanctions as verified denuclearization moves forward. As part of these trust-building measures, North Korea should continue repatriating the remains of U.S. MIA’s and North and South Korea should step us family re-unifications.
