The Korean Peacemaking Webzine – English Edition
As the publisher of the Korean Peacemaking Webzine,
I intend to publish an English edition that will deal with peace and unification issues on the Korean peninsula along with other conflicts in East Asia. The details of the proposal follow:
1. The Background of the Publication
American civil society has not shown sufficient interest or concern on issues of peace on the Korean peninsula and is quite uninformed of the reality of the situation. Even though most Americans have some knowledge of the issues, they have been misinformed and do not realize the seriousness of the matter. This ignorance and naiveté could lead to further confusion and conflict. This gap in knowledge allows the Bush administration to act more aggressively towards North Korea. This will continue, and perhaps worsen, unless these errors are corrected. In order to allow the Korean people themselves, along with other concerned parties, to understand the real situation in Korea, we realize the need to make a long-term effort. The Peacemaking Webzine, which will be sent to American civil society and to the world via email and as a webpage, is an important part of our effort to create a more peaceful atmosphere on the Korean peninsula.
By helping American society to correct their mistaken perspective and to enable proper understanding of the situation on the Korean peninsula and in East Asia, we hope to promote peace between the United States and Korea and also between East Asia and the United States. These efforts will greatly contribute to East Asia’s peaceful co-existence.
Through this home page, we hope to eradicate the current unequal relationship between Korea and the USA and to help guide American civil society towards making efforts for peace on the Korean peninsula. We also hope to promote solidarity between the people in the USA and Korean peace organizations.
