The May 18 Memorial Foundation launches 2010 Human Rights Award
The May 18 Memorial Foundation yearly announces the 2010 Gwangju Prize for Human Rights in memory of the May 18 Democratic Uprising of 1980. The Gwangju prize is gaining international renown, and received nominations from Afghanistan, Burma, Malaysia, and across the Asian continent in 2009. The annual prize aims to enhance the spirit of the May 18 Democratic Uprising by recognizing individuals and organizations who have contributed to protecting human rights and promoting peace, unification and cooperation. This year is especially significant for the people of Gwangju and defenders of democracy because it marks the 30th anniversary of the 1980 uprising. In May this year, citizens and activists will gather in Jeollanam-do to honor and celebrate Gwangju’s contribution to Korean democracy by presenting one outstanding individual or organization with a medal, certificate and 50 million won grant in recognition of their efforts towards peace, democracy and human rights for all.
