Asian Literature Festival participating writers release a joint statement "May 18th togetherness values to be remembered"

 

 

The participating writers at the 2020 Asian Literature Festival released a joint statement on Nov. 1st that "With the hearts of solidarity from May 18th in 1980, we will overcome the current COVID 19 situation with many Asian people."

 

There were some 30 writers from 11 countries that released a joint statement at the '3rd Asian Literature Festival's' closing ceremony on Nov. 1st.

 

This was held at the Gwangju Donggu(동구) Asia Culture Center International Meeting Hall.

 

The writers said that "the Asian Literature Festival was held on the 40th anniversary of the May 18th Democratization Movement. May 18th's values exceed Korea's contemporary history in the sense of the democratization movement.

 

However, it provides a valuable history for many countries' people who are still struggling to fight against national violence and suppression."
