Invitation to join the global citizen's Declaration for Peace in East Asia
‘The History NGO Forum for Peace in East Asia’ decided to state “The Global Citizen's Declaration for Peace in East Asia” at the 6th International NGO Conference on History and Peace, which is to be held in Seoul on 10 - 11 July 2015.
As this year 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the normalization treaty between the Republic of Korea and Japan as well as the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, we cannot sit idly by and watch Japan’s nationalistic movements led by Abe's governmentcontinue to grow, or historical distortion and attempts to abolish its Peace Constitution, all of which threaten peaceful co-existence and the future of East Asia. In these precarious circumstances, wewould like to urge the Abe administration to genuinely acknowledge historical misdeeds and make a clean break with the past, in solidarity with the world citizens of conscience.
If you are in agreement with this Declaration, please join us in this signature campaign.
