CANDLELIGHT VIGIL
Thursday, May 28, 2009

If you live in Los Angeles or are interested in participating, please
come out next WEDNESDAY NIGHT FOR A CANDLELIGHT VIGIL.

Laura Ling and Euna Lee were detained in March by North Korea while
doing a story about North Korean immigrants in China. They will go on
trial next week. Laura is the sister of my friend Lisa Ling. With
tensions escalating due to the recent news of nuclear tests, the
situation is getting more precarious.

Candlelight vigils have taken place and more are planned in cities
around the country. The one in LA will be held in Santa Monica next
Wednesday, June 3 from 7 - 9 PM. The meeting place will be Wokcano,
1413 5th Street, Santa Monica, CA. Good friends Welly Yang and Dina
Morishita are organizing the event.

I plan to be there.

I think I saw that Lisa Ling is going on Larry King on Monday to talk about her sister, Laura, and the other reporter, Euna.
