On December 11, 1969, Korean Air YS-11 was hijacked by a North Korean agent just 10 minutes after take-off at 12:25 pm. 50 people (46 passengers and 4 crew members) were abducted to North Korea.
KAL 1969
Bowing to international pressure, the North Korean government returned 39 people, but 11 were never returned. One of those was Hwang Won, a producer with MBC. His son, Hwang In-Cheol, has been patiently asking the North Korean government to return his father.

On June 17, Mr. Hwang will be leading a rally at Imjingak, near the DMZ, to ask the North Korean government to return his father. In a statement at the International Volunteers Workshop on March 20, Mr. Hwang said:

“I appeal to you all, because you are the heart and the conscience of today’s generation. Please help me bring my father back, bring all 11 of them back. This might be the last chance for us to see any of them alive.

“Help me fight for the justice, and let us prevent the next tragedy which will create more victims and families mourning for them. You can help by spreading the word. Show North Korea, show the world that we haven’t forgotten them. The power of many will bring many changes we urgently need.”

You can participate in this rally in many ways:
* Share this event on your Facebook.
* Attend the rally.
* Become part of the (TNKR) Teach North Korean Refugees “How to Help North Koreans” project. Mr. Hwang has joined that project, he needs help with editing, writing, making an online petition, webmaster, videomaker.
* Event organizers are needed to help with rally logistics.

This is a non-political rally, it is a purely humanitarian event raising awareness about the South Koreans abducted in 1969. This rally will be the starting point of an effort to have Hwang Won and the other 10 who may still be alive returned to South Korea.
