*"The Enduring Legacy of the Kwangju Uprising"*

/*A Talk by George Kastiaficas*/

Kwangju Uprising was mass mobilization against the South Korean military 
government that took place in the southern city of Kwangju between May 
18 and 27, 1980. Nearly a quarter of a million people participated in 
the rebellion. Although it was brutally repressed and initially 
unsuccessful in bringing about democratic reform in South Korea, it is 
considered to have been a pivotal moment in the South Korean struggle 
for democracy.

George Katsiaficas is International Coordinator of the May 18th 
Institute at Chonnam National University and author/editor of numerous 
books on international social movements including South Korean Democracy 
-- Legacy of the Gwangju Uprising and Asia's Unknown Uprisings: South 
Korean Social Movements Since World War 2).

George is moving out of the area soon and this may been you last chance 
to see him for a while.


This event was moved to avoid a conflict with another event relating to 
Korea on the original date.
