Third Anniversary of Sewol Disaster

Sewol disaster third anniversary protest. We have held a silent protest at Trafalgar Square every month since the tragedy on 16 April 2014.

Please join us on 15 April 2017 between 2pm and 4pm; you are welcome to stay for a short time or the whole two hour period.
