New York times Human rights News
On 28th November, the ad about ‘coercive conversion’ was put in the New York Times. This is the second time the advertisement was put following last time. As I said last time, it was just something that happened in Korea at first. And why could it be quieter? Because there was a force to shut this case down. As I said before, this power is the Christian Council of Korea (CCK). Pastors? You can think that ‘Why would a pastor do this? Is it real?’
Because their crimes are revealed. If you think about what is already happening (ex Religious Me Too movement), you can feel it.
But her friends told and told her story all over the world. They didn’t give up for anything. Even when the presidential petition with more than 100,000 people suddenly disappeared, even when the government and the Korean press don’t respond, they don’t give up. Because there are 1,000 victims like her and she’ll be watching from the sky. That means there are more than 1,000 people like her who suffocated by coercive conversion.
Human rights activists and foreign media around the world stand up for human rights
From January to March 2018, there were demonstrations in memory of her around the world. However, the government and the Korean media remained silent. Nothing has changed in a year. If she was watching the situation now, she would have shed tears of blood.
Under these sorrowful circumstances, the New York Times started to help her. When the New York Times, one of the most influential media in the United States, put the ad, so many people stand up for human rights. Human rights activists and foreign media around the world have really helped.
Did you know that there is a sad story here? After hearing this unfortunate news, Ms. Jenifer (New York) began a fund-raising campaign through the GoFundMe. The sad news is that Ms. Jennifer, who started the fundraiser, died of cancer and the Jennifer’s family took the money to run an ad in the New York Times. Because it is her wish.

The 1st Memorial Ceremony for the victim of Coercive Conversion Programs, Ji-in Gu, ‘Remember Gu Ji In, Bloom as a flower of peace’ was held on 6th of Jan. 2019. (Sun) Noon. (UTC +9)
Countless people around the world are mourning her and representing her voice. If you want to know more, my other postings will help you. It will continue until the Korean government and the media admit their mistakes and enact the law against coercive conversion programs! This means that the Christian Council of Korea (CCK) will collapse.
Please help the victims like her. We need your help. Share it on your SNS and join the #Remember_Gu campaign.
