UDPMA

Universal Day for Prevention of Militarism and Authoritarianism (UDPMA) is designated by Asian Human Rights Commission in Hong Kong, the May 18 Memorial Foundation and three May 18 related organization in South Korea, and International Bridges of Justice (IBJ).

In many parts of the world, authoritarianism and militarism of various forms has come to the forefront. With the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, ruling elites claimed they need draconian new emergency powers to respond to the situation. This is part of a broader trend across the globe – repressive, rights abusing laws are in vogue, and spreading rapidly. Advocates of democracy and human rights need to address this issue on an urgent basis. International solidarity support for activits fighting for their rights through this dark time is what we urgently need to provide to those on the frontline against authoritarianism and militarism. Only through such strategies can we seek to overcome the daunting human rights situations that we, and our allies, are facing.

And the recognition of the May 18 as UDPMA will be symbolic of global recognition of this challenge to develop genuine public institutions within which people could find their means to participate in the processes of governance.
