Bellingham’s Veterans For Peace Chapter 111 Member, Michael Jacobsen, in South Korea

After three Veterans For Peace members were deported from Korea last month for trying to join the valiant efforts of the citizens of Jeju, South Korea, in blocking the construction of a giant US naval base,  Bellingham, Washington’s VFP Chapter member Michael Jacobsen has successfully joined the efforts to demonstrate with local protestors.
After seeing the amazing efforts and determination of the people to use nonviolent resistance in the face of police brutality, Jacobsen flew to S.Korea join them soon after other VFP activists were turned away.

"It is the US that wants this giant base. We the citizens of the US are responsible for what is happening to the people of Jeju,” said former VFP Board President Elliott Adams, turned back in March with two other VFP activists. “For us not to join the citizens' defense would be to support this awful naval base."

The photo above shows VFP member Michael Jacobsen now standing with and supporting the beleaguered residents in the town of Gangjeong.
