June 10th, 2017 is a special and meaningful day to South Korea. Today is the 30th anniversary of the 6.10 pro-democracy movement. Therefore, many South Koreans honor those in the past who participated in the 6.10 pro-democracy movement. Why do South Koreans honor and remember people who participated in the movement? Why is this movement important?

On June 10th, 1987, many people participated in this movement at every local place in South Korea. The main reason behind this movement was because of the president election. At that time, people could not vote for their president on their own. People demanded a free and direct election, but the government refused. Therefore, people started to resist against the government for their democracy. Finally, the government provided people direct election and democratic ideals were stabilized.

The 6.10 pro-democracy movement is important for many reasons.
First, citizens fought against the government together. Normal citizens like students, college students, employees, teachers and many other people fought against the government themselves at every local place. These were not rich people or people with high ranks. They were just normal residents.

Second, many people were not pushed to start this movement, but they started based on their own decisions. They realized the problems of our country and government, and they tried to change it. Of course, it was difficult to fight for a more democratic government. Many people died and got injured during the movement. However, people did not give up. People kept fighting for democracy and they influenced the government on their own.

People should know that the 6.10 pro-democracy movement has directly affected our country. Many people think direct election is a given, but in fact, if many people did not resist the government in the past, people still would not be able to vote for their president. Also, our country is now well-known as a democratic nation. However, without the 6.10 pro-democracy movement, South Korea could still be under a dictatorship.

6.10 pro-democracy movement is an important and valuable movement to our country. Since today is the 30th anniversary of this movement, so why don''t you take a moment to think about its significance?
