During this period, Gwangju citizens took up arms (by robbing local armories and police stations) when local Jeonnam University students - who were demonstrating against the Chun Doo-hwan government - were fired upon, killed, and beaten in an unprecedented attack by government troops. The uprising eventually ended in defeat on May 27, 1980. The event is sometimes called (May 18; Hangul: 오일팔; hanja: 五一八; RR: Oilpal), in reference to the date the movement began.

The committee members have inspected a building left with traces of bullets that are believed to have been fired from a helicopter. They promised their best efforts to unveil the facts, saying that it can't be claimed that there was no shooting merely because no bullets were found. Civic groups demanded a proper investigation. [Soundbite] Kim Hoo-sik(Association of Injured Victims from the 1980 Pro-democracy Uprising) : "This should be an opportunity for the truth to come to light and history to be accurately filed." The Defense Ministry's probe team will attempt to shed light on the helicopter crackdown incident and allegations that the military also considered ordering fighter jets to bomb the city.

5.18 민주화 운동 Today marks the 36th anniversary of the May 18th pro-democracy movement,... a day as important now for Korea as it was more than three-and-a-half decades ago. The movement laid the groundwork for the democracy South Koreans enjoy today. For more on what unfolded on this day in 1980 in the southwestern city of Gwangju,... our Shin Se-min reports. It's a day remembered nationwide. For some it holds bitter memories,… for others, honor. Marking the pro-democracy movement that took place on this day 36 years ago,… most people are reflecting and reminiscing on the historic event that altered the political and social landscape of Korea. In 1980,… public opposition to martial law led student activists in Gwangju to carry out a string of demonstrations which triggered a campaign to overthrow the authoritarian Chun Doo-hwan regime. In response, Chun deployed special military forces to suppress civilians and employed brutal force … killing some 200 and wounding countless others. This pro-democracy movement took root, making Gwangju the symbolic center for civil action... and now May 18 is widely remembered as the day that gave birth to democracy in a struggling nation. "I come by and see my friends and brothers... We all went through that time together... It's emotional and hard every time I come." For the daughter of one May 18 activist, this year's anniversary is all the more poignant. Her father has been in the hospital in critical condition since last November, after being knocked to the ground by police water cannons during a government protest. "It's an event that cannot be forgotten... and seeing my dad still going through such tough times,... I don't have much to say." "Here at the Mangwoldong Memorial Cemetery,… where the martyrs of the Gwangju pro-democracy movements are laid to rest,… visitors create this stone tower to honor the spirits of those who have given their lives for the democracy of the nation." The building of this tower was once stalled for more than two decades,... but resumed with public support and continues to take shape, piece by piece. And now, not only does it represent community, but also the united struggle and the spirit of democracy that Korea continues to benefit from today. Shin Se-min, Arirang News, Gwangju.

미 언론인 518 민주화 운동에서 한국 정부 군 사용에 미국 책임 밝혀 Decades have passed since May 18 Democratic movement. Much of the details of the historic uprising by ordinary citizens that involves brutal violence and suppression... remain hidden or distorted. Lee Unshin sheds light on efforts to reveal what exactly happened on that fateful day in 1980. Some 270 kilometers from the capital Seoul, in the nation's southwest, a city that's a symbol of the pro-democracy movement. Gwangju made global headlines in 1980 for the May 18th Democracy Movement,... a civilian demonstration against the newly installed military government of Chun Doo-hwan. But the peaceful demonstration was put down by some 20-thousand troops sent by the regime. Beaten, tortured and gunned down by their own military, more than 150 civilians died and 3,000 were wounded. 37 years later, sites commemorating the victims are found throughout Gwangju, including a national cemetery and a memorial center. But many who lived through that history... say the full truth of the crackdown has never been revealed. Fact-finding continues... by the city, its residents and people from outside the community -- most recently new revelations about the army's use of force against students. American journalist Tim Shorrock, who briefly lived in Korea as a child, has a lifetime's worth of records collected about the May 18th movement. He shared his latest discovery from official U.S. documents that had been kept "classified" for decades. "The U.S. military intelligence had extensive information about the Chun Doo-hwan group..,Despite all this information about what happened, the US decided on May 22 1980 to use military force to end the Gwangju uprising." The U.S. didn't "command" the use of force, but with South Korea's control of its military dependent on U.S. authority, it speaks volumes about the role of the U.S. in the inhumane treatment of local citizens. The U.S. had received innacurate information from Korea, including many false reports, for example, that students were holding provincial government officials hostage. "The U.S. officials had known the information they were receiving was distorted and yet the officials still sided with Chun. Why?" "They believed based on the perhaps on the distorted reports from Korean military and their own analysis from the CIA, that this rebellion could spread nationwide, and maybe bring down the S. Korean government. In this context, there was the Iran crises where students had seized the embassy in Iran, this was a huge crisis for the Carter administration. They did not want to have another national security crisis in Korea. They decided that the Korean military was the only force here that could preserve stability." Shorrock is working closely with the 5.18 Archive, which contains articles, journals, photos, and tapes of the period collected by the city. Many of these, recognized as UNESCO world heritage.

The Gwangju Democratization Movement, alternatively called May 18 Democratic Uprising by UNESCO,[4] (Hangul: 광주 민주화 운동; hanja: 光州民主化運動; RR: Gwangju Minjuhwa Undong), refers to a popular uprising in the city of Gwangju, South Korea from May 18 to 27, 1980. Estimates suggest up to 606 people may have died. During this period, Gwangju citizens took up arms (by robbing local armories and police stations) when local Jeonnam University students - who were demonstrating against the Chun Doo-hwan government - were fired upon, killed, and beaten in an unprecedented attack by government troops. The uprising eventually ended in defeat on May 27, 1980. The event is sometimes called (May 18; Hangul: 오일팔; hanja: 五一八; RR: Oilpal), in reference to the date the movement began. Some critics of the event do point to the fact that it occurred before Chun Doo-hwan officially took office, and so contend that it could not really have been a simple student protest against him that started it; however, Chun Doo-hwan had already become the default leader of South Korea at that time since coming into power on December 12, 1979, after leading a successful military coup of the previous South Korean government Stay tuned with FISU and follow us on our different social platforms!

에너지 신기술 한자리에… 광주 ‘빅스포’ 개막 Top global electric power companies are in Gwangju to attend a major internatioal expo. The big names in the field will put their heads together to exchange ideas and discuss the future of energy industry. Kim Mok-yeon takes us to the city of lights for the 2017 BIXPO. The 2017 Bitgaram International Exposition of Electric Power Technology kicked off on Wednesday in the southwestern city of Gwangju. Hundreds of energy experts from some 270 domestic and foreign companies are participating in the three day expo, which is being held under the theme "Connect Ideas, Meet the 4th Revolution". Korea Energy Power Corporation, the host of the event, says that it hopes to offer access to the latest trends in the energy industry and also create new business and job opportunities. (KOREAN) "We want to promote Korea's outstanding energy industry and create a venue for global businesses to network with each other. By doing this, we hope to pave the way for local energy companies to advance in the global market." This year's event, the third of its kind, seeks to meet the needs of the fast-changing electric power industry through a range of programs such as the New Technology Exhibition, the International Conference and the International Invention Fair. The programs don't just look at energy alone, but also link energy to broader issues such as sustainable development and climate change, with displays featuring solar panels and smart city devices. (ENGLISH) "We know that there are four different things that need to be done to stop climate change. One is to carbonize electricity, another is to ensure electrification of things like transport, another is to reduce waste and the fourth one is to increase carbon sinks. And within this expo, there are potential contributions to all four of these things." [STAND UP] Aside from lectures and exhibitions for industry professionals, there's plenty for normal visitors to enjoy and learn about. Smart home devices, VR and AR experience centers, drones and even the latest robot technologies are on display for visitors to experience. The exposition will also hold cultural events including a performance by the New Seoul Philharmonic orchestra, K-Pop performances and traditional music concerts throughout its three day run.

Korea, Japan and China have rather complicated relationships with one another, affected by centuries of historical conflicts and disputes. But student representatives from the three countries are trying to look beyond the differences Our Park Ji-won reports. These teenagers from three different countries, Korea, China and Japan, are laughing as they play games together. They may not understand one another because of the language barrier, but that isn't stopping them from enjoying themselves. "History shows us numerous conflicts between our countries, but actually meeting these people gave me fresh ideas about friendship." "Neither English nor Japanese work here, but it's great that we can have so much fun beyond the language barrier." "The events are fun and the people here are very kind. I hope this can be an opportunity to promote mutual friendship and erase prejudices we might have against one another." This program is part of an annual education tourism forum organized by the governments of the three countries. It was launched in 2006 to nurture a global mindset in the hearts of the young. "Over the past few decades,... Germany and France have organized exchanges of about seven million students. They've turned once hostile memories of war into a new cooperative relationship. I believe Korea, Japan and China can make a new road into the peaceful future through the active engagement of student exchanges." "Organizers hope the opportunity provides participating students a chance to develop a global perspective and builds mutual understanding. Park Ji-won, Arirang News, Gwangju."
