25 YEARS AGO, ON MAY 18, 1980, THE PEOPLE OF KWANG-JU IN SOUTH KOREA, ROSE UP AGAINST MILITARY DICTATOR CHUN DOO HWAN. THEY HELD THE CITY FOR FIVE DAYS BEFORE ELITE SOUTH KOREAN TROUPS UNDER U.S. COMMAND BRUTALLY VRUSHED THE UPRISING. MORE THAN 2,000 WERE KILLED AND THOUSANDS INJURED, TORTURED AND IMPRISONED.
