DON'T CRY









A series of short videos from Gangjeong village on Jeju Island where yesterday people blocked the Navy base construction gates. 

The polluted water from the construction site is now moving further off-shore into the area where the UNESCO recognized endangered soft coral reefs are located.  The South Korean government once called this entire place a "Special Preservation Area" but this designation has been washed away by the US demand for the Navy base that will be used as part of Obama's pivot into the Asia-Pacific to control China.

A couple of days ago a retired US Navy man was identified in Gangjeong village and told a witness that he now "lives" there.  Why would an American and former Navy man be living in this tiny fishing and farming community?  He is most likely working as a consultant on behalf of the Navy to help direct the base construction project.  For years the US has vigorously denied that they have anything to do with the Navy base.
