Defending Gangjeong Village

Ten members of the Pacific Northwest peace delegation meet with Yang Yoon-Mo during their recent ten days on Jeju Island, South Korea.  (Delegation member Rodney Herold made the video).

Yang Yoon-Mo was an acclaimed film studies professor in South Korea who quit his work and came back to Jeju to join the resistance.  He's been jailed several times - once spending about 18 months in jail for blocking Navy base construction vehicles.  During two of his jail sentences he fasted for long periods of time coming close to death.

He was again arrested on Saturday in the recent struggle to defend Gangjeong village land as the Navy attempts to now take more of the village for military housing.
