Peace activists make rare crossing of North-South Korea border


PAJU, South Korea: An international group of women peace activists, led by American feminist Gloria Steinem, made a rare crossing Sunday of one of the world’s most militarized borders between North and South Korea. The group of 30 activists rode by bus through the demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas in what Steinem described as a “triumph” for peace and reconciliation, dismissing criticism that the women had allowed themselves to be used as propaganda tools by the North. “I’m so confident that once it is clear what we have experienced, these objections will go away,” Steinem told reporters on the South Korean side of the border.
