This summer two members of Sahngnoksoo participated in a program called the Korea Education and Exposure Program (KEEP). Neither of us had experienced the social justice movement culture in Korea and were excited to have a glimpse at it.
Now that we’re back, we want to share the many things we learned. Show you the images of riot police spraying protesters with blue dye in order to identify and arrest them later. Talk about militarism and frame S. Korea as a nation under the thumb of American neoliberalism but also as a nation importing women into militarized prostitution. We want to explore the complex situation in S. Korea and tie it back to the work we’re doing locally. We hope that you’ll join us to learn more and to continue building strength in our alliances and work together.
