ANOTHER JEJU HUNGER STRIKE


Today is Sung Sim Jang’s 19th day of hunger strike.

The 42 year old is from a village 40 minutes outside of Gangjeong on Jeju Island. For 13 years she worked as a taxi driver in the region.

Outraged by what is happening in Gangjeong, she decided she has no other choice than to enter a hunger strike.

On the fourth day she got her hair shaved off in protest

She is all day, every day in front of the gate.

Joining mass…

Reading or praying

And joining the blocking of the gate

and she is still going strong and not going to give up

- Words and photos by Carol Reckinger who is now in Gangjeong village and has a photo blog with many great images which can be found here
