International Solidarity Week to Re

member the Sewol Ferry Tragedy

– The Truth Shall Not Sink with Sewol!

Period: 8 August 2014 (Fri) ~ 14 August 2014 (Thu)

On April 16, 2014, hundreds of desperate voices cried out for rescue – but most of those cries went unanswered. The tragic sinking of the Sewol ferry cost the lives of 304 innocent people, 10 of whom who are still missing and unaccounted for. It has been over 100 days since the tragedy occurred yet the world still waits for an independent investigation to be properly conducted. The victims’ families are desperately protesting for the enactment of a special law which would establish an independent commission to investigate the cause of the accident and also develop strong measures to prevent tragedies like this from happening again.
