SUNDAY SONG





On Jeju Island South Korea, in the village of Gangjeong residents along with peace and environmental activists from around the world are rallying to protect UNESCO Heritage sites and their community from a massive military base construction project. This video was shot on August 4, 2011 and it shows nonviolent protestors rallying in front of the base construction headquarters. In the final minutes of the video the cameraman passes from the jubilant peace activist side of the police barricade, manned by hundreds of police officers in riot gear, to the pro-base section. It is here that retired military personal insult police and spew vulgarity. These former military officers do not reside in the village of Gangjeong and traveled from the mainland to show their support for the base construction project.
