Day 2 global solidarity for Korean peace: Stop North Korea sanctions #freezeforfreezeifyouplease
8월 7일은 미국이 일본 히로시마에 원폭 투하한 날입니다.
인류 역사상 유일하게 민간인에게 원폭을 투하한 미국인들이 유엔에서 대북 고강도 경제 제재를 통과 시켰습니다.
67년 종식되지 않은 한국 전쟁의 피해자는 민간인들 입니다. 경제 제제의 피해자도 바로 전혀 죄 없는 북한의 어린이들, 산모들, 노인들, 병자들입니다.
이달말 미의회가 미국인들의 북한 방문을 전면 불법화하는 법안이 통과될 것입니다.
인도적인 교류만이라도 허용하라는 청원서 사인 해 주십시요. (서명 1)
그리고 미 국무성 장관이 평양 방문하란 청원서도 지지 부탁드립니다. (서명 2)
문재인 대통령님께서도 트럼프 대통령께 북한과 인도적인 교류 허용 및 외교 촉구 부탁 드리면 좋겠습니다.
그것이 전 세계가 부러워 했고 존경하고 있는 숭고한 대한민국 촛불 혁명의 정신이라고 봅니다.
미국이, 중국이, 일본이, 러시아, 북한이 못해도 대한민국은 할 수 있다고 봅니다.
경제 개발, 민주주의, 평화 협정 이 세가지 목표를 반드시 대한민국이 성취할 수 있다고 믿습니다.

"If there’s going to be a war to stop [Kim Jong-Un], it will be over there. If thousands die, they’re going to die over there [in the Korean peninsula].” -- US Senator Lindsay Graham
The most logical beginning would be a freeze for a freeze: North Korea would freeze its nuclear and missile testing in return for the United States and South Korea freezing their annual military exercises. Send Tillerson to Pyongyong. Petition to President Donald Trump
Dear Friend--this week the United Nations led by the United States celebrated the latest economic sanctions on North Korea. What shame especially when there are other options!
As you know, the sanctions will hurt the most vulnerable: children, women, elderly, the poor and sick in North Korea (please see references). Instead of celebrating on the world’s longest and cruelest sanction on the world’s weakest that won't work, we should pursue result-oriented acts such as recommended and promoted by our awesome, experienced and professional global citizen diplomats: this week's 3 missions!
Please kindly help us with this week’s 3 missions, which will take less than 1 minute of your time!
In possibly considering signing the petition, I kindly wish you to do it for those who will suffer the most from the latest sanction against North Korea: children, women, elderly, the poor and sick.
Please remember the time when someone helped you when you needed the most!
The children in North Korea will remember us when they grow up in 20 years!
More than 30 per cent of 5-year-olds in North Korea are stunted, and five per cent remain severely malnourished and at a state of living-death
More than 1/4 of pregnant or breastfeeding woman in North Korea are severely and acutely malnourished
Mission 1): American Friends Service Committee via Dan Jasper, Korea Peace Network
"Protect Humanitarian Assistance to the people of North Korea"
“Humanitarian assistance is in jeopardy. Please take action and share this alert widely with your networks.” Dan Jasper, Korea Peace Network
“Korean-Americans seeking to reunite with their loved ones, cultural exchanges, and groups like ours working to build bridges.” Christine Ahn, Women Cross DMZ
The Trump administration has issued new travel restrictions on U.S. passport holders to North Korea that could hinder access for humanitarian organizations, journalists, Korean-American families seeking to reunite with loved ones, faith-based delegations, cultural exchanges, or other groups seeking to build bridges to dialogue.
Humanitarian assistance to North Korea helps those in need and keeps channels of international engagement and dialogue with North Korea open.
PLEASE SIGN NOW!
Mission 2): Send Tillerson to Pyongyong. Petition to President Donald Trump
With tensions rising between on the Korean peninsula and evidence clear that sanctions and military pressure against North Korea do not work, it’s time for a bold initiative. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson should be dispatched right away to North Korea to begin negotiations. The most logical beginning would be a freeze for a freeze: North Korea would freeze its nuclear and missile testing in return for the United States and South Korea freezing their annual military exercises.
Sixty percent of Americans, regardless of political affiliation, support direct negotiations between Washington and Pyongyang. So does President Moon of South Korea and Secretary of State Tillerson. We urge you to give Tillerson the opportunity to show us he’s a diplomat with the courage to make the peace deal of the century.
PLEASE SIGN NOW!
Please spread the word vis sns, twitter, etc.
