 Candlelight Vigil: Sign a Peace Treaty with North Korea
Monday, June 11 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm: Park Street Station

*The Summit between North Korea and the United States takes place June 12 *

On April 27 the leaders of North and South Korea declared that “there will
be no more war on the Korean Peninsula and thus a new era of peace has
begun”. Now it is time for our country to step up to the plate and offer
U.S. support to what these leaders have begun.

On June 12 (June 11 at 9pm, Boston time) President Trump and President Kim
Jung-un of North Korea will take the bold step of holding a joint summit in
Singapore. We urge both leaders to begin a process that will lead to the
complete de-nuclearization of the Korean peninsula, an end to sanctions,
and the signing of a non-aggression pact and a peace treaty to end the
Korean war.

Join us at 5:30pm Monday to support peace negotiations that must begin to
lift the danger of catastrophic war in Korea from the shoulders of the
people of Korea and the world.

For years now thousands of people throughout South Korea have held enormous
candlelight rallies to bring down a repressive government and to demand
peace and reconciliation between the 2 Koreas. It is time for us to express
our solidarity to these brave Koreans who have lived in the shadow of war
for almost 7  decades. It’s time to declare that the war is over.
