Fourteen years have passed since 14-years-old two schoolgirls Sin Hyo Sun and Sim Mi Son were brutally killed by an armored car of the US army in south Korea that had been involved in the war drill against north Korea .
The hair-raising atrocity of the US troops triggered off south Korean people’s towering anger all at once
The arrogant US troops embellished the case as “incidental” and “they were in the execution of their duties”, declaring the GIs not guilty to send them to the US.
Enraged at cheeky acts of the GIs, the south Koreans hold a memorial service every year in the place of case and Seoul to honor the memory of the two girls, to probe the truth behind the case, demand punishment of those responsible for it and revise the unequal south Korea-U.S. “Status of Forces Agreement” (SOFA).
There took place an event on June 13 for honoring the memory of two schoolgirls Sin Hyo Sun and Sim Mi Son in Yangju City, Gyeonggi Province of south Korea, where they were mercilessly killed
Attending it were ten odd civic organizations in south Korea including the committee for building a monument to the memory of Mi Son and Hyo Sun, the People for Achieving Peace and Reunification and the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions.
The participants honored the memory of the schoolgirls, staging a demonstration from the entrance to the village to the scene of the crime.
The participants moved to the Gwanghwamun plaza in Seoul and set up an incense-burning altar of citizens at which they held a candlelight rally for honoring the memory of the two schoolgirls.
The GIs’ monstrous crimes committed in south Korea are not confined to the late two girls.
The US troops menaced the south Koreans with guns and beat them black and blue, cudgeled passers-by, made a sexual assault on girls pupils in their teens and women in their 40s and set fire to their houses in recent years alone.
The south Korean people should drive the GIs present south Korea, the root of all vice, without delay in order to shake off all misfortune and disgrace.
