An International Conference will be held for three days from August 16 in Seoul and Anseong to look at the problems caused by militarism and the stationing of US troops in regions outside the US.

This is the fourth such international conference organized by the 'Women's Network against Militarism,' and will be participated by women activists from countries where the US Army has stationed its troops, such as Korea, Japan, Okinawa, the Philippines, Puerto Rico and Hawaii. Participants will be sharing their experiences under the theme "Peace Comes from My Life - Militarism and Women's Rights."

At the open conference that will be held at the learning station of the National Human Rights Committee on August 16, keynote presentations will be given on themes such as 'Globalization and Militarism,' and 'Globalization and the International Trafficking of Women,' followed by case studies from each region on the women's peace movement against militarization. On August 17 and 18, there will be closed conferences in Anseong to discuss various issues including the lives of sex workers serving US army camps, children born between locals and American soldiers, US army base camps and the environment, treaties between the US and host countries, retrocession of base camp land and economic development for residents.

The 'Women's Network against Militarism' was established ten years ago by feminists who had come to regard the issue of security as a women's issue. In Korea, Durehbang, Hansori Society for the Eradication of Prostitution, National Campaign for Eradication of Crimes by US Troops in Korea, Women's Society for Peace, Alliance for Peace and Human Rights, Korea Association of Church Women and An Il Sun are part of the Network. 02) 2275-4860
