Eclipse Rising Stands for Peace on the Korean Peninsula!
On this 60th anniversary year of the signing of the 1953 Armistice Agreement that only temporarily halted the Korean War, Eclipse Rising stands up in solidarity with Koreans and peace advocates worldwide to call an actual end to the war and instead bring about real peace on the peninsula.
We agree with a statement released by the Korea Alliance of Progressive Movements, that "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."
Today we participated in the "I Stand for Peace" photo campaign to gather at least 200 supporters in the U.S. (1000 in Korea) to take a photo with a message for peace and to post that photo on social media sites.
The Eclipse Rising collective was able to collect close to 20 images of people (and animals) standing for peace and an end to the war games and sanction. These images will be a part of a mosaic to be used at press events in South Korea!
