[Sewol Ferry Tragedy] Memorial Activities and Commemorative Events Continue in Jeollanamdo

 

Arrays of ceremonial and memorial events are taking place in Jeollanamdo to commemorate the April 16th ferry disaster last year.

A Sewol Tragedy Memorial Performance was held today at the Paengmok Harbor and near the accident site where the ferry capsized and sank in waters off Jindo Island.

22 cities and districts will host their own memorial activities, such as a candlelight street demonstrations wishing for the peaceful rest of the victims and the fast recovery of the sunken ferry as well as the 9 passengers still unaccounted for.

The Jeollanamdo provincial government building currently runs a joint memorial altar for the victims of the accident in its Yoon Seon-do Hall and an online altar is on the official webpage of Jeollanamdo at jeonnam.go.kr.
