San Francisco American Peace Activist group demonstrates against naval base construction at GangJeong Village

 On the morning of May 9, the group demonstrated in front of the Consulate General of South Korea in San Francisco.  The peaceful protest focused attention to the damage being done to the environment and to the peaceful spirit of Jeju Island. They were joined by Jeju Island artist Koh, Gill-Chun.

 The demonstrators held up signs and banners including one stating “Free Dr. Song”, with a photo of the injured activist, which the people passing by were shocked to see.  Almost all the people who stopped to ask questions knew nothing about what is going on in Jeju Island.

 At the end of the two-hour demonstration, a representative group of 5 people entered the consulate to try and meet with the Consul General but were told by the receptionist that neither the Consul General nor any of his staff were in the building.  When asked where they were or when they were returning, they were told that it was a secret.
