WAW (Women Against War), the organization gathering voices of Korean women opposed to war, has expanded its organization and gotten its campaign in full swing.

Besides organizing women to send out the anti-war message from the viewpoint of women and the socially marginalized in Korea, the launching of WAW is significant in the sense that it has proven the potential of a 'new system for feminist solidarity' by rallying feminist groups, websites, media and individuals around the same cause.

Unlike the method of alliance adopted by mainstream civic groups, WAW members put groups and individuals on an equal footing, letting them participate in ways each sees fit. Within one week of opening the internet cafe, more than 100 individuals have signed up for membership, organizing themselves into the WAW website team, overseas material translators' team, media monitoring and critique team, university alliance team, international relations team and so on.

At noon on October 10 in Gwanghwamun, the heart of downtown Seoul, WAW plans to hold the 'Anti-War Crossing Demonstration 1010,' expressing the voices of Korean women and the social weak against war.

WAW will also concentrate on international exchanges with overseas women-for-peace groups and anti-war websites.
