Citizens in Gwangju march through the streets on the eve of the 37th anniversary of the pro-democracy uprising that took place in the city on May 18, 1980. Some ten-thousand people gathered at the Gwangju May 18 Democracy Square on Wednesday, as estimated by event organizers, where a pre-event ceremony was held. Leadership of the ruling Democratic Party attended the event, including newly elected floor leader Woo Won-shik. Some 20 lawmakers from the minor opposition People's Party also attended, including its new floor leader Kim Dong-cheol. A record ten-thousand participants were present for the main memorial ceremony on Thursday. This year, the ceremony lasted about ten minutes longer due to a lineup of various performances. In particular, as previously instructed by President Moon Jae-in, all participants sung in unison the protest song "March for the Beloved" for the first time in 9 years.

[Soundbite] Moon Jae-in as presidential hopeful(May 7) : "How has the song, which was even sung by the president in the past democratic era, been treated over the past 9 years? Not one time was it allowed to be sung."

The ceremony commemorating the pro-democracy movement was notably elevated in status this year as demonstrated by the attendance of rival party leaders and officials from organizations related to democratic movements throughout Korean history.
