NORTH KOREA FREEDOM DAY
APRIL 28, 2004, WEDNESDAY
11 AM RALLY FOR NORTH KOREA FREEDOM
U.S. CAPITOL -- WEST FRONT
The North Korea Freedom Coalition, a bipartisan coalition of organizations and individuals supporting freedom and human rights for the North Korean people, is organizing North Korea Freedom Day which will include a major rally on Capitol Hill in conjunction with Members of the U.S. Congress and in support of the North Korea Freedom Act.
The Coalition is working with many other NGOs to plan a host of events for people who come to Washington, D.C. to be a part of the rally, including a special lunch at 12:30 pm, opportunity to lobby Congress for the North Korea Freedom Act from 2-4 pm, a reception with North Korean defectors musical group from 4-6 pm, and a special prayer vigil for North Korea at a local church at 6:30 pm.
Most events will be on Capitol Hill to make it easier for participants. Additionally, other organizations are planning special activities to occur the same day to focus attention on the suffering of the North Korean people.
North Korean defectors are coming from Seoul and other cities to be a part of this day and to participate in several special events to focus attention on the enslavement of their homeland.
Please feel free to post this announcement on any websites and re-transmit to your own email lists to anyone who may be interested in joining us in Washington, D.C. or in planning events in their own communities for that day. More details will follow as additional events and locations are confirmed. Registration for the rally and all events will open in late February.
In the meantime, please start making plans to come to Washington D.C. on Wednesday, April 28, 2004, to help bring freedom and human rights to our suffering brothers and sisters in North Korea.
