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.

A LOOK INSIDE GANGJEONG



This is an interesting video about the Gangjeong village fight against Navy base.  It appears to be a TV news documentary but I don't know that for sure.  It is well done and gives you many different views of people and scenes from the protest there.  It is all in Korean.

The artist they feature calls himself dopehead zo and he is one who has come to support the villagers.  He plays guitar, sings, translates, and does many other jobs as he has fit into the community like one of their own.

At 4:23 into the video you see Professor Yang Yoon-Mo (who has done two major hunger strikes almost to the death in the past year) trying to block construction operations.  He is in the brown clothes.

It's well worth the look.
