Date : 2013-05-09     Hit : 2486

We are delighted to share with you that we successfullyconducted the May 18 Peace Ambassadors program on 4th May. The topicis concerning the Gwangju Prize for Human Rights, the biggest and spectacular eventof the May18 Memorial Foundation. Since the 2013 Gwangju Prize for Human RightsAward ceremony is around the corner, we hope our May 18 Peace Ambassadors wouldget the understanding and knowledge regarding the prize and the concept ofhuman rights.

 

Firstly, we watched the related videotitled ‘the story of human rights’ and discussed numerous questions such as “Whydo we need human rights?”, “What kinds of human rights do we have?” and “Ifpeople have freedom to speech, why are thousands in prison for speaking theiropinions?” Even though some questions are arduous to respond, they expressedtheir thoughts actively and met the points.

 

After the discussion regarding humanrights, Kee Do, our international intern from Burma, introduced the GwangjuPrize for Human Rights and the story of the laureate named ‘Min Ko Naing’ fromBurma, the leader of 'All Burma Federation of Student Union' who fights for Democracy through non-violent ways and won the Gwangju Prize in 2009.

 

Lastly, we conducted the related topic regarding‘human rights abuses’. Szu-yu Yen, our international intern from Taiwan, sharedthe case study about ‘228 incident’- the democratization movement happened in1947. Additionally, Kee Do shared human rights abuses in Burma during1990~1995. After the case studies, we conducted the group discussion to figureout some solutions. They expanded their views and resolutions proactively. Oneof our May 18 Peace Ambassadors said ‘Internet’ might be one of the solutionsto human rights abuses. Numerous human rights abuses take place without borders,but very few can be known to the world. By using the Internet and onlinecommunities, we can spread the related news and information all over the world,even though we are not journalists and reporters.

 

We will conduct the programuntil December, please keep your eyes on our May 18 Peace Ambassadors!
