STAND UP FOR PEACE – Stories of the Struggles to Stop the Naval Base Construction on Jeju Island
Join us as Ms. Jeong Young-Hee, chairwoman of the Gangjeong Women Villager’s Committee to Stop Naval Base Construction talks about the current state of the struggle to save Jeju island from destruction. This struggle has been going on for over 7 years now, as villagers have put their bodies on the line to stop the devastation of this beautiful island, which has unique coral reefs, lava coastline, a vast array of aquatic species – and families whose livelihoods are at stake. Beyond this – such a large naval base will only add to the military tensions in the region, already at a high level.
On a national tour right now, Ms. Jeong is speaking in several cities in the US, and will finish at the UCLA ENDING THE KOREAN WAR conference and events, from May 8th-11th in LA.
