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.

SAVE JEJU PROTEST IN LONDON



An international week of solidarity with Jeju Islanders will be held in September.  Groups worldwide will be urged to organize local events to help build support for Jeju.  More details will be posted as they become available.

Breaking News from Jeju:  Professor Yang Yoon-Mo was sentenced to two years probation today in court.  The government prosecutors were requesting that he be given two years in prison.  It is obvious that his two long hunger strikes during the past year and the growing international solidarity with Gangjeong villagers has helped to prevent him from being salted away for a long time in jail.  Keep the fires burning.  I would venture a guess that Yang, once recovered from his recent hunger strike, will be back on the streets again soon enough.
