Yes to Peace in Korea!

September 25, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Korea Peace Rally, Boston, Aug 30, 2018

Can the United States take yes for an answer?

Inter-Korean peace summit, Sept. 19, 2018, Pyongyang

Inter-Korean peace summit, Sept. 19, 2018, Pyongyang

On September 19, the presidents of South Korea and North Korea adopted a military agreement to make the Korean peninsula nuclear-free.   The North agreed to shut down a missile engine testing facility and launch pad, and if the US takes reciprocal measures, to permanently shut down the Yongbyon nuclear facility, where the North creates its plutonium, witnessed by international nuclear experts.

The two leaders call for US-SK-NK declaration to end the Korean war by the end of the year, moving towards a permanent peace treaty.  North Korea expects an action-for-action approach and it is now time for the US to step up and take the opportunity.

President Trump will speak to the United Nations on September 25, followed by South Korean President Moon Jae-in and the North Korean foreign minister later in the week.   A South Korean peace delegation will hold a press conference at the UN on Sept. 25 at noon, followed by a panel discussion in New York in the evening.

We will rally to call for the US to take the following steps:

 
Koreans are the protagonists in the Korea peace process. Support their self-determination on peace and reunification!

Lifting sanctions on North Korea brings Korean family reunification! 

Sign a Joint Declaration to End the Korean War, Leading to a Peace Treaty!

Yes to Maximum Engagement with N. Korea/ No to Maximum Pressure!

Lift Harsh Sanctions on North Korea!

Stop Blocking Humanitarian Aid from reaching North Korea!

Build a Peace Regime First– Best Way to Denuclearization of Korea!

 

Cosponsored by Korea Peace and Unification Action of Boston and Massachusetts Peace Action (List in formation)
