Anti-Japanese Independence Movement Memorial Tower Opens in Yeosu

 

A memorial tower in commemoration of the anti-Japanese independence movement that featured the participation of 40 local independence fighters was constructed and opened yesterday at Yeosu Woongcheon (웅천) Hanaro Park.

Some 1,000 citizens and city officials, including Yeosu Mayor Ju Cheol-hyun and Yeosu city council members, as well as city and provincial councilmen, took part in yesterday’s unveiling ceremony of the memorial tower.

Construction of the tower was completed on March 1st, a date that marks the peaceful street demonstration that claimed Korea’s sovereignty and independence from Japanese occupation.

The city of Yeosu will reportedly use the new memorial park as an education center for the preservation of history and tradition as regards regional independence movements.
