2020 Global Jubilee Peace Campaign Concept Paper

Declaring a People’s Korea Peace Treaty

1. Background
The year 2020 marks the 70 years’ anniversary of the Korean War. With the three-year-long Korean War from 1950 to 1953, more than six million people were killed and wounded, and the entire country was completely destroyed. Furthermore, over seven million people were separated from their families and many of them have since died without the chance to reunite with their family members. Since the Korean War the division became an unavoidable reality, and more than 70 years of division have caused confrontation and antagonism between the two Koreas, bringing unbearable han to the minjung (grass-root people) in the two Koreas. Even after 70 years since the Korean War, the two Koreas are still under the status of the armistice living with the fear of another war. Therefore, it is the most significant mission for all Koreans to end the war and open a new era of reconciliation and peaceful coexistence.  ....
