64th Anniversary of Korean War Armistice

Date:

The armistice was signed on Jul 27, 1953 to temporarily suspend the Korean conflict that broke out in 1950. Since then, no peace treaty has been signed to officially declare the end of the war.

Korea: Moving from crisis to peace

The following article is written by Irish Columban missionary priest Pat Cunningham, SSC, who lives and works in Seoul, South Korea. Father Cunningham is an active member of the Catholic Nonviolence Initiative and the Catholic solidarity movement for peace on the Korean peninsula which opposes the construction of a military base to host U.S. military ships and personnel on the beautiful island of Jeju.
