Only a few days before President Trump again joins Kim Jong-Un for a summit, this time in Vietnam, we will hold a vigil for peace.
These summits must become productive, not just publicity stunts. Join CFPA in proclaiming:
Negotiate for Real Peace in Korea!
We will meet in Tiger Park at the front of Palmer Square, right by Nassau Street, at 12 noon, on Monday, February 25, and the vigil will last for one hour.
If you or your organization would like to hold your own event in your region, please contact us as well.
Whether or not you can attend the vigil, below are some talking points that we encourage you to use for letters to the editor, calling in to radio talk shows, social media posts, and any other way you can spread the message of peace.
• The negotiating process should be a step for step approach, the only way to have a realistic chance of making progress.
• Declare an end to the Korean War and start negotiating a treaty permanently ending it.
• US accedes to civilian opening for rail lines and other civilian contacts between North and South Korea, which those two already agreed to but which the US is blocking to date.
• US declares permanent end to war game exercises in Korea.
• N. Korea declares end to production of nuclear weapon grade materials, and willingness to negotiate inspections regime, so it can produce no additional nuclear warheads. Simultaneous with above significant step, US agrees to lift some significant sanctions against N. Korea.
• US gives diplomatic recognition to North Korea, as Japan has just announced it intends to do.
