This "is where the new Congress comes in. It should show America’s commitment to peace by introducing a resolution that formally ends U.S. participation in the Korean War and calls on the president to begin a process toward the signing of a peace agreement." #PeaceForClimate  #ClimateForPeace 

  • Declare an end to the Korean War and start negotiating for a new era of peace.
  • Establish a peace process towards the signing of a peace agreement which includes civil society, especially womens' groups.
  • The negotiating process should be a step for step approach, the only way to have a realistic chance of making progress.
  • US declare permanent end to war game exercises in Korea
  • US accede 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.
