We Fight Against Despair by Dancing

Took a small action against discrimination in May 21 at the center of Daegu.

Die-in protest let us remember the victim of misogyny murder at Gangnam, Seoul in May 17 2016, and countless victims who died from sexual and gender based violence in human societies. Voluntary speeches were followed one after another from the floor. Each narrated her and his experience. They exposed how different types of discrimination have engrained in our everyday lives. How victims/survivors are so easily hidden when intersecting multiple minorities, while the violence gets subtler but crueler. Marching through the city center chanting “Misogyny killed”, “No more later, we change here now” and “We are courage to each other” empowered our voice.

Like the slogan we had, we fought against despair by dancing, at least in this very night.
