Key Arrests in on Jeju Island


By Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space
 

There were four arrests in Gangjeong village within the past day.  The arrested are:

Youngsil Kang (International Team Leader)
Brother Song (Resistance Leader)
Sung-hee Choi (International Team Leader)
Dunguree (Filmmaker)

Three were arrested at the UN-ROK Disarmament Conference during peaceful protest and one was arrested at the naval base gate. This conference is happening just minutes away from Gangjeong village and little connection is being made to the construction of the Navy base that will only escalate tensions in the region.

There are undercover police and military everywhere in the village.

These are four of the most effective activists. Some are facing very significant jail time and already on probation.

Please help spread the word to media and other organizations, particularly human rights groups.

In other related news from South Korea, 40 Catholic priests in Seoul have begun a hunger strike in protest at what they call a nation’s greed that is threatening the environment, peace and economy. Members of the Catholic Priests’ Association for Justice (CPAJ) held a Mass outside the National Assembly building yesterday to oppose the government’s plan to build the Navy base in Gangjeong village.

You can support the Gangjeong villagers by making a call to Mr. Kim Soo-Gwon. He is the minister of Human Rights Desk at the Permanent Mission of the Republic of Korea to the United Nations, located in New York. Telephone number is 212-439-4051 his cell phone is 646-831-7188 and email is kimsoogwon@gmail.com
