Since its formation in 1994, Solidarity for Peace and Reunification of Korea (SPARK) has organized for national self-determination, peace and disarmament, and the reunification of the two East Asian nations. Based in what is now considered South Korea, SPARK is composed of nine district offices and nearly 2,000 members from all corners of the country. Much of the organization’s work is focused on abolishing unjust military partnerships between South Korea and the United States and on peacefully resolving the North Korean nuclear issue. SPARK also advocates for reducing South Korea’s defense budget.
A 2012 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported SPARK’s opposition to the U.S. navy base on Jeju Island.
The Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space served as a fiscal sponsor for this grant.
