15 April 2013, SOUTH-KOREA

he People’s Solidarity for Participatory Democracy (PSPD), composed of 24 civil organisations, held a press conference with 15 Parliamentarians in front of Parliament urging them to “Disarm for Peace”. Read the statement, the letter send to governments and see the photos from this action.

On April 15, they also held a campaign in the street: dressed up like Teletubbies they asked about 1,000 people to write a peace message. See the photos.

The PSPD also made a short film Will the Pacific Teletubbies keep the Pacific pacific? urging the two Koreas and other stakeholders to stop the fights, as they only benefit military and weapon sellers. The movie also emphasizes how people should and can stop the fighting.

See pictures from the Peace parade on the Global Day of Action on Military Spending (Hankyoreh). People display signs with messages of peace related to the ongoing tensions on the Korean peninsula. Some of the Korean signs read, “Flowers instead of bullets” and “Who really wants war?”.
