Welcome to the group blog for KEEP 2008. We are Korean-American and Korean-Canadian community workers, educators, organizers, artists, writers, students in cities all over North America. In August 2008, we will be converging together in south Korea to build solidarity with and learn about Korean people's movements and organizations. We will sweat. We will sing. We will farm, march, dance, and light candles with Korean people for democracy. And we will blog.
The mission of KEEP is to increase awareness of and strengthen the global movement for peace and justice on the Korean peninsula. Through building relationships and communities, KEEP seeks to broaden our understanding of and participation in the liberation struggles and unification of the Korean people.
KEEP 2008 is the 13th annual solidarity program to South Korea. For more information about the program, check out: www.keep.org.
