Relative to Yu Gwan-sun Day.


ACR 35, as introduced, Choi. Yu Gwan-sun Day.
This measure would recognize March 1, 2019, as Yu Gwan-sun Day in honor of the 100th anniversary of the March 1st Movement in Korea.
Fiscal Committee: NO  

WHEREAS, The March 1st Movement was inspired by the “Fourteen Points” outlined by President Woodrow Wilson at the Paris Peace Conference and was the first step taken by Koreans for independence; and
WHEREAS, The reading of the Korean Declaration of Independence, which was drafted by historian Choe Nam-seon, in Taehwagwan Restaurant in Seoul and the subsequent signing of the document signaled the beginning of the independence movement for Korea; and
WHEREAS, From March 1 to April 11, 1919, approximately 2,000,000 Koreans participated in more than 1,500 demonstrations, which are referred to today as the Korean independence movement; and
WHEREAS, Yu Gwan-sun is best known as an organizer in the March 1st Movement in the peaceful demonstration against the Imperial Japanese colonial rule of Korea; and
WHEREAS, The protests and the March 1st Movement sparked the creation of the Provisional Government of the Republic of Korea, and while the campaign failed to achieve its goal of independence, March 1 is celebrated by both North and South Korea today as a national holiday; now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the Assembly of the State of California, the Senate thereof concurring, That the Legislature recognizes March 1, 2019, as Yu Gwan-sun Day in the state of California in honor of the 100th anniversary of the March 1st Movement in Korea; and be it further
Resolved, That the Chief Clerk of the Assembly transmit copies of this resolution to the author for appropriate distribution.
