“The South is the true betrayer of the Korean nation. After the war, those who came to power and collaborated with the Americans, were the same people who had collaborated with the Japanese and helped oppress the Korean people. After the war they helped put down Korean nationalism. The spirit of our nation cannot be healed until the people reunite it.”
Chairman of the Korean Council for Democratic Martyrs

The Korean Council for Democratic Martyrs is an organization dedicated to remembering those who have died or been disappeared (political prisoners) by the South Korean government, because of their fighting to build a more democratic Korea.
