Jeju Peace Tour, August 2019

At the end of August, Jeju Dark Tours led a group of adoptees and allies on a tour of historical sites relevant to the April 3rd Uprising and Massacre. Approximately 30,000 people (10% of Jeju Island’s population) lost their lives between March 1947 and September 1954 as the police and military cracked down on those who protested the division of the Korean peninsula.
