von Rainer Werning

Vor 40 Jahren, im Mai 1980, schlug das südkoreanische Militär mit Wissen und Billigung Washingtons den Volksaufstand in der südwestlichen Stadt Gwangju brutal nieder. Zehn lange Tage, vom 18. bis zum 27. Mai 1980, währte der Blutrausch, der bis heute die Gemüter – vor allem in der Republik Korea (Südkorea) – aufwühlt. Dort gilt der 18. Mai als „Tag für den demokratischen Aufstand“, an den während zahlreicherGedenkveranstaltungen feierlich erinnert wird.

The Legacy of the Gwangju Uprising (final).flv  -  To commemorate the 30th anniversary  -  Mit den Fotos von Jürgen Hinzpeter
30 years ago, Gwangju people courageously stood up against military power. They drove paratroops out of the city and held the city together peacefully which demonstrates the capacity of ordinary people. Those 10 days of struggle changed the country's direction. After spilling Gwangju people's blood, South Korea finally achieved democracy. This is a brief documentary about Gwangju Uprising which I made to commemorate 30th anniversary of 5.18. I found a small error from the previous one so corrected it. Hopefully, this documentary is helpful to understand about Gwangju Uprising and South Korean history.
