Koreans in US Stage No-War Demonstration
Koreans in the US simultaneously launched demonstrations in Washington, New York and Los Angeles on August 14 in solidarity with American peace movement organizations to protest the US moves for igniting a war against the DPRK, according to the south Korean online paper Jaju Sibo.

Demonstrators released a joint statement, titled, "The Trump government should stop north-targeted war moves at once."

Charging that Trump's bellicose remarks are bringing the danger of war to the Korean peninsula, the statement said:

Trump has fully revealed his true colours as a war maniac before the world by saying that the outbreak of war will kill thousands of people on the Korean peninsula only, not content with his reckless remarks about "fire and fury."

The peace treaty, to be signed soon after the conclusion of armistice agreement in 1953, has not yet been concluded due to the refusal of the US.

The ceaseless south Korea-US joint military drills and north-targeted nuclear war drills under that abnormal situation caused the north's nukes and ICBM development.

Terming the US hostile policy toward the DPRK the root cause of danger of a nuclear war on the Korean peninsula, the statement stressed:

The US should give up its strategy for dominating Northeast Asia and hostile policy toward the north.

We strongly urge the US administration to opt for dialogue and peace, not sanctions and war.

The US should stop the north-targeted war moves at once and come out for dialogue with the north immediately.

It should declare the end of war and conclude a peace treaty.
