Location: Brunswick, Maine, United States

I'll be taking an 'unpaid leave of absence' from my job at the Global Network from December 15-March 15, 2020 in order to help my friend Lisa Savage on her campaign for the US Senate in Maine. She's running as a Maine Green Independent Party member and needs to gather 2,000 petition signatures of registered Greens during that period. I'll be back to GN after March 15.

VIDEOS BLACKED OUT - WHY?

Mayor Kang out of jail after two day hunger strike

You will see below that my post of a video from Jeju Island has been blacked out. Reports from South Korea indicate similar stories there.

The web site called No Base Stories of Korea had all of their videos from Jeju blacked out. See it here

It appears that the international protest response to the South Korean government is having an impact. It is obvious that only they, and the U.S. military, would have an interest in removing these videos!

By the way, the mayor of Geongjong, Kang Dong-Kyun, has been released after a couple days of hunger striking in jail.

Keep sending your international solidarity messages to the villagers on Jeju Island. Send to: armha5156@gmail.com

UPDATE TO LOST VIDEO:
On 1:00 pm on Thursday the video reappeared after folks in South Korea had begun a media campaign to bring attention to the fact that the videos had been taken down from the Internet
