We, member organizations and ally organizations of the International League of Peoples’ Struggles existing in the south of the Korean Peninsula, vehemently condemn the ongoing joint war exercises of the United States and Republic of Korea (ROK) on and around the Korean Peninsula. Let all people of conscience unite in calling for an end to the war games in the cause of a just and lasting peace. We support a peaceful resolution by stopping the war games, ending the Korean War once for all with a peace treaty, removing of the United State military from the region, and renunification through dialogue and political process.

This shall be the call of the International Migrants’ Alliance (IMA) as we join the many working women around the world in commemorating the International Working Women’s Day this March 8, 2013.
We remember and continue to be inspired by the defiance of the women workers who fought for class and gender liberation when they struggled collectively against low wages, long working hours and oppressive working condition in the factories they worked in. Their defiance and struggle was what started and marked the International Working Women’s Day and it is what we aim to continue unto this day.
