5 City Vigil for Two American Journalists Detained by North Korea

On 21 May 2009, at least five major cities will be holding a vigil for  two American journalists who will have been held in detention for over ten weeks by the North Korean Government.

During Laura Ling and Euna Lee’s closed door trials hundreds will be gathering in:

Portland

According to reports, Foreign governments have expressed concern saying that closed trials may not allow for a defense or fair trial.

Friends say that attention and support for the women who are being tried for “illegal intruding” is extremely important in helping to bring about a positive outcome.

According to witness reports in Huffington Post, the two California natives were seized while filming  when North Korean border guards crossed into Chinese territory.

The two journalists were working on a story about North Korean refugees fleeing to China.
