광주시, 59주년 '광주 3·15의거' 기념식 개최

Gwangju holds Commemoration marking March 15 Movement

 

The City of Gwangju held a commemorative event for the 59th anniversary of the March 15 Movement.

 

Hyungjin Ro has details.

 

Celebrating the 59th anniversary of the March 15 Movement, the City of Gwangju held its commemoration today at the Bitgoeul Civic Center.

 

More than 500 people including members of related organizations, local government leaders as well as students gathered to celebrate this meaningful day.

 

As part of the event, the center also held a historical document exhibition for March 15 at the Citizen's Cultural Center. In addition, 300 citizens, students, and organization members participated in a demonstration reenactment.

 

The incident in 1960 was known for helping spark the movement against corruption known as the April 19 Movement, which eventually led to the resignation of President Lee Seungman and the beginning of the Second Republic.

 

On that day, more than 1,000 Gwangju citizens gathered at Geumnamro Street for the demonstration.
