SEND MESSAGE TO JEJU ISLAND JAIL HOUSE

 
Professor Yang-Yoon Mo now in Jeju jail for the 4th time with an 18 month sentence


Grassroots media activist Park Sung-Soo in Jeju jail for 28 days after refusing to pay large fines


Yang Yoon-Mo and Park Sung-Soo (Dungree) hit their 60th and 7th day respectively at the Jeju prison in South Korea as of March 31.

You can send a solidarity message to these two non-violent peace workers by emailing them via gangjeongintl@gmail.com

Professor Yang ended his long hunger strike last week and we hope his recovery is going well.

Park (Dungree) has for the past couple of years been one of the key producers of videos of the Gangjeong village resistance to the Navy base.  His almost daily updates have kept many of us intimately connected to the protests on Jeju Island.


Free all the political prisoners!

Stop the oppression of tremendous fines!

Stop the Navy base construction!

Boycott Samsung!

Thanks so much, Bruce,

Breaking Update on April 2: Mr. Park Sung-Soo (Dungree) was suddenly released as of April 1. He had strongly refused that people pay fine for him. But without his opinions consulted in advance, some anonymous person(s) paid his fines of 1,400,000 won on behalf of him on April 1 and he was released on the day. It was informed later that the unknown person(s) did it, reading media, from the kind heart to help him. Mr. Park Sung-Soo expressed both of his sorriness and thanks to the person(s). Mr. Park Sung-Soo left for the main land and would stay there for a while as his family member is sick.

Thanks so much to the friends who have sent solidarity messages for him. We would send all your solidarity messages sent to him by now through email to him. From now on, please send support letters only to Yang Yoon-Mo who hits his 62nd prison day as of April 2, 2013.
