We’re just days away from our Korea Peace Action: National Mobilization to End the Korean War in Washington, DC.
If you can’t come to DC, you can still be part of this historic action. Here are five ways to participate:
1. Watch the livestream of our “70th Anniversary of the Armistice on the Korean Peninsula” conference: Top military and nuclear experts, scholars, activists, and humanitarian aid workers will discuss the human impacts of the unresolved war and how peace can advance denuclearization. Plus a keynote address by noted Korea historian Bruce Cumings. Register here.
2. Urge your Representative to co-sponsor the Peace on the Korean Peninsula Act: We need more support for this bill calling for diplomatic solutions to the security crisis on the Korean Peninsula.
4. Watch Crossings: We’re excited to announce that you can now stream Crossings online! Deann Borshay Liem’s powerful film documents our 2015 journey from North to South Korea across the DMZ and provides an urgent and critical counter to the mainstream narrative of the Korean War and North Korea. Here are three ways to watch:
- On WORLD Channel: https://worldchannel.org/episode/doc-world-crossings/
5. Donate: We’re still shy of our goal to raise $30,000 to help support 30 young Korea peace activists to attend our DC event. But it’s not too late to donate! Click here to pledge your support. 100% of the proceeds will go to supporting event costs.

Deep Freeze: Ending Korea’s Armistice Agony [Cape Breton Spectator, July 12, 2023]
American nuclearization of the South set in motion the North’s long journey to the Bomb. It also revealed the peninsula as a local pawn in a global game, with Washington’s warheads pointed not just at Pyongyang but Moscow and Beijing, integrated into the Pentagon’s elaborately delusional plans to wage and win World War Three.
