San Fransicso Protest Tonight for Release of Asian American Journalists


The Academy of Art University in San Francisco,  a community of student and professional artists, designers and broadcasters, in unity with Euna Lee, 2001 BFA Motion Pictures & Television alumna, and Laura Ling in adding our voices to the international demands for their immediate release from North Korea. 

Both American journalists were sentenced to 12 years in labor prison after being convicted of illegally crossing the border into North Korea and "grave crimes" against North Korea. The two had been working on a story on human trafficking from the Chinese side of the border for Current TV, headquartered in San Francisco. 

Students, alumni and faculty of the Academy of Art University, along with other community organization, are leading a community-wide gathering to join the nation in solidarity for the release of Euna Lee and Laura Ling.  For the first time in Northern California, Michael Saldate, husband of Euna Lee, and Ian Clayton, husband of Laura Ling, will appear together and speak at tonight's vigil.
