Sewol Ferry Accident Family Response Committee Conducts Signature Campaign

Sewol Ferry Accident Family Response Committee Conducts Signature Campaign

 

The Sewol Ferry Accident Family Response Committee officially began a signature collection campaign today urging the national government to seek the truth about the accident and enact a special law to prevent similar accidents.

The Family Response Committee composed of families of the victims and those still missing held a press conference yesterday near Paengmok Harbor in Jindo Island where the ferry carrying more than 400 passengers sank and said they will travel across the nation on a bus asking people to sign the request for the enactment of relevant safety laws and finding the truth.

Families will reportedly be seeking 10 million signatures from Korean people and are asking governmental officials in charge of rescue and search operations of the missing passengers to be responsible for their mistakes and misconduct during the process.

The buses carrying the families of the victims will travel across the country, including Gwangju where the buses will make a stop from July 3rd to the 5th on Geumnamro Street.
