Allow Citizens Free Passage to Reunite Their Families

Target: President of South Korea Park Geun-hye

Goal: Allow free passage between borders of North and South Korean so that citizens can finally reunite with family members.

Families separated for years by military conflict may soon be able to reunite if an agreement is reached by North and South Korea in their first peace negotiation talks in months in their truce village of Panmunjeom, according to South Korea’s Unification Ministry. The talk will be held in the next couple of weeks and will be the first time in months that the two sides have agreed to meet in order to ease rising tensions between their governments. Their most recent meeting was held due to tensions caused by South Korea blaming the North for a land mine explosion in a neutral area that wounded two South Korean soldiers.

Families separated by the conflict between North and South Korea were emotionally reunited as part of the most recent agreement, most of whom had been separated by the Korean War that ended in an armistice in 1953. The South Korean Unification Ministry also stated that the arrangement would be a preparatory meeting for further high-level discussions, the dates and locations of which remain to be announced. Insist that President Park Geun-hye of South Korea persuade Kim Jong Un to allow his citizens to pass freely to and from North Korea.


Dear President Park Geun-hye,

As was recently announced, your country has agreed to meet with North Korean officials in the truce village of Panmunjeom to discuss peace negotiations and ease tensions between your two countries. This valiant effort is greatly appreciated, as an in-depth discussion with the North Korean government is something that has been long awaited by a large part of the world. The South Korean Unification Ministry, along with this announcement, stated that the meeting would be preparatory from further high-level discussions with North Korea about future plans and endeavors for peace.

As part of the most recent agreement you made with North Korea, several families held heartfelt reunions with family members that had been separated by the two countries, many of whom were torn apart by the Korean War that ended in 1953. There are surely countless more families that are suffering similar sorrows, if not worse troubles, that could be eased with the ability to travel to and from North Korea. I request in the next coming meeting with North Korean officials that you please make an effort to encourage North Korea to allow its citizens free passage from the country.
