Los Angeles, CA: Gwangju People's Uprising freedom fighter Myung Sook Cha met with 67 Korean American, Asian American and Latinx community members at KRC on May 24 for a special Uprising 39th anniversary talk on the theme of "Gwangju People's Uprising: Women's Stories". Back in 1980, during the uprising in the city of Gwangju, Cha led street announcements atop another activist's car from May 19th to 21st, exposing crimes against humanity perpetrated by South Korean government soldiers. Cha said "someone had to tell the citizens that people were being killed by the soldiers. Whenever we got our hands on speakers and a microphone, we organized street announcements." At this event, commemorating the 39th anniversary of the uprising, and also the 36th anniversary of KRC's founding, four students were awarded with a $1,500 scholarship.
