*A poster on the community board regarding Samil movement
The early Nineteenth century saw an oppressive occupation of the Korean peninsula, by Colonialist Japanese. A hundred and two years ago, over 10% of the Korean population took part in a series of anti-occupation and pro-independence rallies spanning over two months, which resulted in 7,509 Korean Deaths, and 15,961 injured. This movement would be celebrated each March 1st since by both Koreas, rallying for political protets, and becoming a national holiday, called Samil Movement (March 1st Movement Day/삼일 운동). Join us, tomorrow, at 9PM, for the 101st anniversary of these historical Korean marches.
