Global Actions for Sewol 1000th Day

The global community is putting their actions together to commemorate the 1000th day since the Sewol Ferry Disaster on 16th April 2014.

Nearly three years have passed but no independent and transparent inquest was carried out to date. Park Guen-hye’s government did not hide their desire to end the enquiry into the disaster as quickly as possible with taking as little responsibility as possible or none.  Continue reading “Global Actions for Sewol 1000th Day”

Sewol Families Visiting Europe

On 16th April 2014 the South Korean passenger ferry MV Sewol sank en route to Jeju Island, taking the lives of 304 people, mostly high school children.  As the Korean public watched live pictures of the ship dangerously listed and slowly sinking,  authorities responsible for rescue acted with confusion and inertia.  An inexplicable announcement through news media that all passengers had been rescued set the tone for ineptitude that has characterised the handling of one of South Korea’s biggest disasters.

The parents and campaigners visiting Europe between 3 and 15 May 2016 hope to reach as many people as possible to highlight their struggle for truth.   Continue reading “Sewol Families Visiting Europe”

2014년 발생한 세월호 침몰로 대한민국의 미디어 지형이 변화하였다. 기존 언론들이 정부의 발표를 보도한 반면 탐사 저널 형식의 뉴스타파는 정부가 발표하지 않은 가려진 진실을 밝히기 위해 노력하였다.

대한민국에서 의사 표현 및 언론의 자유가 점차 퇴보하고 있으나 독어권 미디어를 비롯한 세계 언론에는 이러한 상황이 잘 알려지지 않았다. 2014년 4월 16일 대한민국 해상에서 발생한 세월호 침몰사건은 국민뿐만 아니라 대한민국 미디어에도 비극적 사건이 되었다. 국내의 수많은 주류언론은 정부의 발표를 그대로 보도하였고, 이를 비판하는 사람들의 의견은 정부…
