The Korean War is in a ceasefire state. In other words, it is not completely over. South Koreans can travel to almost anywhere in the world today, whether actually or virtually, but North Korea remains steadily closed off and inaccessible behind the barbed wires which break the Korean Peninsula in half across the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). The fear of war, hostility, and military tension have shaped the lives of people living on the Korean Peninsula for seven decades. 70 years is enough. It's time to end the Korean War.
We imagine a future where the people of the Korean Peninsula, East Asia and the world cooperate and coexist peacefully. We hope our resources will be used for people’s safety and happiness, for environmental sustainability and a society without discrimination instead of preparing for war. We hope that the Korean Peninsula, which was a symbol of confrontation and conflict, will be changed into a birthplace of peace and coexistence together with peace-loving people around the world.
