With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

AlJazeera documentary video about Jeju Island Navy base struggle.

Sung-Hee Choi reports from Jeju on the latest arrests:

Four of us were released from the custody cell of the Dongboo police station around 7pm. The charge against us was "refusal to leave." We had been arrested around 1pm yesterday.

We were very much welcomed in the village candle light vigil tonight.

We thank you so much to you, Regina, Matt, Benji and all. All of your response was so prompt and I think it helped a lot for our being released soon. The arrest itself was illegal. The police have given no prior Miranda notice before our arrest and the warning and arrest was done at the same time without giving us time to decide our departure.

Rebecca Johnson (UK activist) was at the police station when we were released along with friends including Regina and Benji. Her presence was great in the candle vigil tonight.
