Millennials Are Killing Capitalism

Aug 3, 2018

In this episode, we speak with Hyejin Shim, a second generation queer Korean in the US. Hyejin organizes with Hella Organized Bay Area Koreans (or HOBAK) a collective that is dedicated to building solidarity towards peace and reunification in Korea. 
Her other political work focuses on supporting survivors of domestic/sexual violence, particularly at the intersections of criminalization and immigration. 
She is a founding member and co-organizer of Survived and Punished, and a member of the queer/trans workgroup of the Korean American Coalition to End Domestic Abuse (or KACEDA)
In this episode we speak with Hyejin to broaden our understanding US imperialism’s impact on Korea social and political life both historically and in the present day, and to get some perspective on how progress towards reunification as well as the belligerent nature of the US empire toward the DPRK impacts all Korean people.
