Busan Slutwalk, Sat Aug 31, 6-7PM, hosted by Don't Do That

Don't Do That Campaign welcomes you to participate in a slut walk

I had a great chat today with organizers of Don't Do That (성범죄인식개선캠페인 돈두댓), a campaign to change mindsets about sex crimes. The group is organizing a slut walk campaign in Busan and Seoul. I translated the information below and hope that readers will share it widely. 

Don't Do That Campaign is a voluntary group that comes together to raise awareness about sex crimes. Their site offers a lot of information and is a great resource.

Event in Busan:
On Saturday, August 31, 2013, 6PM ~7PM there will be a slutwalk hosted by the Don't Do That (성범죄인식개선캠페인 돈두댓) Busan Team.
The walk will take place near Bujeon-dong, Seomyeon Subway Station (Line 1 & 2), Exit 1.
Participants will meet at the ally next to Judies Taehwa and march toward Lotte Department store. Please see the map below and spread the word~
For additional information about this event, please contact organizers via KakaoTalk ID jinamarna or via Facebook.

Updated Note to Participants: It seems that the organizers of Don't Do ask that you prepare some appropriate picket signs and it seems like they have some suggestions about clothing: wearing hot pants or short dresses or T-shirts exposing the belly button, even wearing dressdown/business casual is fine. Inquires can be directed to the contact info above *^^* 
Original text: "적당한 노출이 있는 옷차림과 개인 피켓을 준비하시면 되요^^ 옷은 핫팬츠나 짧은 원피스, 배꼽이 드러나는 티셔츠등을 입기도 하고 자유복장도 괜찮아요^^ "

Here is a little map I made of the area in Busan where the slut walk will take place:

This is an image I found of Judies Taehwa storefront, participants will meet nearby at 6PM:

Please share the flyers below. 
Busan readers, if you attend the event, I would really love to hear about it~ I wish I could make it out this time, but I can’t. Please share this event and support the cause. 

Readers in Seoul, I will be sure to provide similar translation/map when I hear from the Don’t Do That Seoul Team.

Another group that may interest readers is Slutwalk Korea. Slutwalk Korea organized the first slutwalk movement in Asia in early 2011. They launched a number of events in global solidarity with the slutwalks that started in Toronto and all over the world that year. They have also hosted global solidarity events for Pussy Riot and on March 8, 2013 for International Women's Day. They have a great Twitter feed and regularly post information related to sexual violence or slutwalk-type events in Korea ( I learned about Don't Do That from a Slutwalk Korea Twitter post).
