Filming the Jeju Story

Today I taped another edition of my public access TV show This Issue with Paco Michelson and Hee Eun Park (Silver) about the Navy base resistance on Jeju Island in South Korea.  Thanks to my crew of veterans Eric Herter and Dan Ellis for their work in the engineering booth and on the camera.

The guests did a great job of telling the heartbreaking story about the eight-year long struggle in Ganjeong village to resist the base that will host US Navy destroyers, aircraft carriers, and nuclear submarines.

Silver concluded the show with a moving appeal to the American people to help stop the US from expanding its military empire in the Asia-Pacific which could very well lead to a devastating war in her country.

The show should be available on YouTube in about a week.  I'll post it as soon as I can.  This Issue presently plays on 14 local stations across Maine.
