Only 290 people recognized as a men of national merit from Gwangju Students Independence Movement

"광주학생독립운동 유공자 290"

                                                         

The Ministry of Patriots' and Veterans' Affairs revealed yesterday that 290 people have been recognized for their contributions to the Gwangju Students Independence Movement. The number has increased from 215 because of revised criteria of examination. The criteria of examination were revised last June to include people who were expelled from school because of their participation in the independence movement back in the Japanese colonial era.

 

As this year is the 90th anniversary of the movement, citizens of Gwangju are calling for additional recognition of participants. They said that the number of men of national merit is too little considering that there were more than 54,000 students from 320 schools participating in the movement from November of 1929 to March of 1930. But the Ministry of Patriots' and Veterans' Affairs released a statement, saying that they held off recognizing some people because of their later socialist activity. The recognition on the list of men of national merit of those who joined the North Korean government when Korea was divided into two would have violated the current Korean constitution.
