gSuiheisha and Hyeongpyengsa - the records of cross-border solidarity between the minorities who had been discriminated againsth

The Suiheisha was created in 1922 in Japan and the Hyeongpyengsa in 1923 in Korea by the minorities in the respective countries. The two organizations started to collaborate with each other in 1924. The nominated items, which were compiled in the midst of serious discrimination against the minorities in the two countries, represent the universal principles of the humanity (human rights, liberty, equality, fraternity and democracy), making them worthy to be included in the Asia/Pacific MOW Register.
