40주년 5·18기념식 옛 전남도청서 개최

Commemoration marking 40thanniversary of the May 18 Democratic Movement to be held at the former S.Jeolla Provincial Office.

 

There will be a commemorative event for the May 18th greeting its 40thanniversary at the old Jeonnam Provincial Office. Our HyungJin Ro reports.

 

An official ceremony for the May 18 Democratic Movement will be held next Monday to mark its 40th anniversary. The Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs said the event will be held at 10 am at the former South Jeolla Provincial Office.

 

The ministry said the site was selected for the first time to host the annual ceremony because of its significance and to commemorate 40 years since the incident.

 

This historic site is where hundreds of citizens protesting for democracy in 1980 were killed or injured in a brutal military crackdown under the Chun Doo-hwan regime.

 

Event organizers said it will establish thorough measures to prevent coronavirus infection as well as to minimize traffic congestion as the site is located downtown.

 

Meanwhile, President Moon Jae-in has emphasized the need to inscribe the historic value and significance of the incident in the constitution of South Korea.
