Vigils for Asian American journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee will be held on Wed., June 3, throughout the country. The two employees of San Francisco-based Current TV – a media venture founded by former Vice President Al Gore – were arrested March 17 near the North Korean border while reporting on refugees living in China. Both women, accused by North Korea of crossing into the country illegally from China and committing “hostile acts,” will be tried on criminal charges on June 4th. Visit the Facebook group for updated information.

The organizers of the vigils hope to help influence a positive outcome for Laura and Euna. Supporters are asked to please bring candles to the vigils.
