MORE JAIL TIME ON JEJU


More peace activists in Gangjeong village on Jeju Island, South Korea take a brave stand in non-violently resisting the building of the naval base on the 'island of peace'! We salute your powerful witness against militarism and pray for peace in the Asia Pacific region!

Two more peace activists went to jail today for refusing to pay fines related to protests opposing the construction of a naval base on Jeju Island. Lee Jong-Hwa and Park Seung-Ho took a conscientious stand against militarism and injustice. They said, "We will resolutely resist till the day when the Jeju naval base construction is stopped.” The two men, who were arrested two years ago in front of the naval base project committee building complex and charged with obstruction of business, expect to be in prison for 1 to 2 months.
