'저는 그들의 땅을 지키기 위하여 싸웠던 인디안들의 이야기를 기억합니다. 백인들이 그들의 신성한 숲에 도로를 만들기 위하여 나무들을 잘랐습니다. 매일밤 인디안들이 나가서 백인들이 만든 그 길을 해체하면 그 다음 날 백인들이 와서 도로를 다시 짓곤 했습니다. 한동안 그 것이 반복되었습니다. 그러던 어느날, 숲에서 가장 큰 나무가 백인들이 일할 동안 그들 머리 위로 떨어져 말과 마차들을 파괴하고 그들 중 몇몇을 죽였습니다. 그러자 백인들은 떠났고 결코 다시 오지 않았습니다….' (브루스 개그논)

Text Fwd: 60th anniversary of the Korean War

* Text Fwd from International Action Center on July 22, 2010

This year marks the 60th anniversary of the Korean War.

60 years later, the Korean War is not over, and Korea is still divided.

In 1945, two U.S. colonels in Washington D.C. divided the Korean peninsula along the 38th parallel. This arbitrary divide soon became a border and military frontline before and during the Korean War. An Armistice temporarily ceased fighting on the Korean peninsula and established the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) along the 38th parallel. A peace treaty was never signed, and to this day, Korea remains in a state of war.

The National Campaign to End the Korean War is bringing the DMZ back to Washington D.C. Join us from July 25-27 for a series of events that show how we continue to be affected by the division and demand the U.S. government end the Korean War by signing a peace treaty.
