This space is dedicated to the proposition that we need to know the history of the struggles on the left and of earlier progressive movements here and world-wide. If we can learn from the mistakes made in the past (as well as what went right) we can move forward in the future to create a more just and equitable society. We will be reviewing books, CDs, and movies we believe everyone needs to read, hear and look at as well as making commentary from time to time. Greg Green, site manager

Tell Congress: Support a Peace Treaty to End the Korean War! Massachusetts Peace Action Michael VanElzakker
Tell Congress: Support a Peace Treaty to End the Korean War!
Massachusetts Peace Action has joined with the Massachusetts Korea Peace Campaign, a growing movement of Korean-Americans and allies in Massachusetts standing in support of the peace and reconciliation process on the Korean Peninsula. We are a multi-generational group, coming from all walks of life, and we are committed to ending the long-festering Korean War.
Support the negotiation of a new relationship between the United States and two Koreas, and the creation of a formal Peace Treaty to replace the 65-year-old Armistice Agreement. Eighty million people on the Korean Peninsula, millions more in the diaspora, and all peace-loving people around the world wish to see this process succeed.
Three 2018 summit meetings between the South and North Korean leaders, Moon Jae-In and Kim Jong-Un, and the historic Singapore Summit between President Trump and Chairman Kim have created momentum toward a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula and long lasting peace in the region. Now, as the second Trump-Kim summit approaches, it is appropriate for members of the U.S. Congress to take advantage of this rare opportunity and commit to the peace process in Korea.
Congress should support our grassroots efforts to build on these recent significant gains by providing the leadership needed for good-faith diplomacy and negotiations between the United States and both Koreas.
