PSPD in English Peace/Disarmament 2024-05-04   2729


On Thursday, May 2, Campaign Against Arms Fair, Amnesty International Korea, and the BDS Korea held a press conference and flash mob in front of the Yongsan War Memorial as part of the global day of action : #Stop Sending Arms to Israel. Participants in the press conference raised awareness about the current situation in Palestine and the ROK government’s continued arms sales to Israel, and called for an immediate end to arms exports. They called on the ROK government to stop turning a blind eye to the genocide against Palestinians and fulfill its obligations and role as a signatory to the UN Arms Trade Treaty.

After the press conference, a die-in performance was held to the sound of the actual bombing of Khan Younis in Gaza. Participants held Palestinian flags, missile pickets with “MADE IN KOREA” written on them, symbolizing the victims of Gaza, and joined the global action against arms exports to Israel.
