JACKSON LEADS PRAYER IN KOREA

At the invitation of the National Council of Churches in Korea, Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, Sr., will deliver the opening prayer at a national vigil for peace next week at the Korean demilitarized zone (DMZ) during a week-long peace mission and speaking tour of the Korean Peninsula. Jackson and the Rainbow PUSH Coalition will lead a delegation of peace activists, Korean-Americans and religious leaders visiting South Korea from July 21 to July 28 as ongoing high stakes negotiations between North Korea and South Korea – and between the U.S. and North Korea – unfold on the Korean peninsula. “For peace to happen, diplomacy, not provocation, is essential,” Jackson said. “After 65 years, Koreans on the peninsula and in the diaspora, and the global community, hope to break the cycle of military threat and demand a new era of peace and reunification.”
