Rev. Hanjoo Park, pastor of the Korean First Presbyterian Church, and other mid-Missourians will share their reflections on war and hopes that the Truce serves as a bridge toward an enduring peace on the Korean peninsula.

A relatively small percentage of people in the United States-- beyond military personnel--understand the horrible reality of war. That is not the case with ouur Korean kin. More than 3 million people were killed in the Korean War which injured millions more and devastated the nations. Donald Trump and other US militarists continue to fuel escalating tension in recent months with mindless bluster. We are thankful to promote the hopes and reality of our kin from Korea to help illuminate the public with a metaphorical torch, recognizing the humanity at stake and celebrating the Olympic good will and the Peace Truce-- which serves, we hope, as a bridge toward manifesting an enduring peace on the Korean peninsula.

Special Feature Film

Game of their Lives“The Game of Their Lives”, a film that provides a very exciting, heart-warming, and deeply humanizing look at the North Korea of the Cold War era that U.S. audiences can relate to. In 1966, DPRK won a berth at the World Cup held in England. The story of the players, how they got there, how they were received at the height of the Cold War, the drama of the games, the totally unexpected embrace by the city of Middlesborough, and what became of the team over the years – is absolutely gripping. So much so that several Korean American organizations sponsored a national screening tour of the film in 2003 with the British filmmakers, Dan Gordon and Nick Bonner. These screenings were among the first real exposures of North Koreans/North Korea to the US public including Korean Americans. And the response was incredible.

7pm Thursday, March 8

Cambridge Friends Center

5 Longfellow Park (off Brattle Street, out of Harvard Square) in Cambridge

Film followed by short update on the new national effort to “Continue the Korean Truce” with Paul Shannon of the National Collaboration on Korea.

The United Nations called for an Olympic Truce to last from Feb. 2 to March 25. During the Olympics and Paralympics we have seen the first high level discussions between North and South Korea in many years. The people of the world saw the United States suspend joint military exercises and North Korea suspend nuclear weapons and missile tests. We saw North Koreans and South Koreans marching together in the opening ceremony under the banner of a unified Korea. New discussions are being planned. But the U.S. is planning to resume military exercises in Korea soon after March 25

We must do everything we can to support the efforts among Koreans to build on the momentum toward a peace process: We must raise our demand that the Olympic Truce be continued after March 25.

Thursday, March 15 4:30pm

South Station, Boston



The recent Olympics offered a unique moment to promote peace on the Korean Peninsula and avoid a cataclysmic war.
We saw North Koreans and South Koreans marching together in the opening ceremony
During the Olympics we saw the first high-level discussions between North and South Korea in many years
The People of the world saw the United States suspend joint military exercises and North Korea suspend nuclear weapons and missile tests


The Olympic Truce (called by the U.N. to last from Feb. 2 to March 25) opened up the opportunity for future discussions that could eventually lead to peace.

We must give this small opening toward peace the opportunity to grow and to prevent a catastrophic war

Say YES to the ongoing efforts by South and North Korea to restore a peace process.

Say NO to war with North Korea



We urge our government to end the march toward war and to support the continuation of the talks between North and South Korea.



As the Winter Olympics come to an end,

Continue the Olympic Truce in Korea

Continue talks between North and South Korea

Do Not Resume U.S. military exercises in Korea

3/6/2018 16:56:45Film Screening: Memory of Forgotten War3/21/20187:00:00 PMMorse Institute Library14 E. Central St. NatickMA1760
In the spirit of the Olympic Truce, and in consideration of the looming threat of conflict in Korea, we invite you to join us for a film screening of Ramsay Liem’s Memory of Forgotten War on Wednesday, 7 p.m. March 21 at the Morse Institute Library in Natick.

MEMORY OF FORGOTTEN WAR (2013, 38 min.) conveys the human costs of military conflict through deeply personal accounts of the Korean War (1950-1953) by four Korean-American survivors. Their stories take audiences through the trajectory of the war, from extensive bombing campaigns, to day-to-day struggle for survival, and separation from family members across the DMZ. Decades later, each person reunites with relatives in North Korea, conveying beyond words the meaning of family loss. These stories belie the notion that war ends when the guns are silenced and foreshadow the future of countless others displaced by ongoing military conflict today.

The film’s personal accounts are interwoven with thoughtful analysis and interpretation of events by historians Bruce Cumings and Ji-Yeon Yuh who situate these stories in a broader historical context. Additional visual materials, including newsreels, U.S. military footage, and archival photographs bring to life the political, social and historical forces that set in motion the tumultuous events of the War and its aftermath.

Ramsay LiemRamsay Liem, director, producer, and executive producer of the film, is professor emeritus of psychology and visiting scholar at the Center for Human Rights and International Justice at Boston College. His interests include the intergenerational transmission of historical trauma and the social and historical contexts of Asian American identity formation. He is responsible for the oral history project Korean American Memories of the Korean War and served as project director for the multi-media exhibit “Still Present Pasts: Korean Americans and the Forgotten War”. The documentary Memory of Forgotten War is the most recent product of his work on Korean American legacies of the Korean War.

Korea at the Crossroads: War, Peace and North-South Talks

Everyone would agree that Korea today is at crossroads towards war or peace. The political temperature has changed around the Korean peninsula from “fire and fury” to the scheduled summit between South and North Korea, maximizing the momentum from the Pyeongchang peace Olympics. In these volatile times, we tend to look for an experienced guide making roads to peace one step ahead of us. Mr. Jong-hoon Kim of the Minjung Party in South Korea fits the bill well. He is one of the two Representatives who held “No War, We want Peace” pickets when Trump spoke at the National Assembly Hall. https://imgur.com/gallery/aVJN3

His party, the Minjung Party, is a small new progressive party, but is known to make the strongest echoes for peace and reunification in Korea.Rising out of the candlelight revolution of 2017, workers, farmers, the urban poor, women, youths, and students got together on October 2017 to establish the Minjung Party.Mr. Kim and his party started a national campaign calling for permanent and stable peace and proposing actual steps to improve the South and North Korean relations.We hope to have this event be an opportunity for people in New York to hear on the progressive voice from Korea.

Guest Speaker: Kim Jong-hoon, Co-Chair of the Minjung Party of South Korea & National Assembly Representative
