Protesting Enormous Fines on Jeju Island

Regina Pyon writes from South Korea:

"Post-modern avant-garde live show" by Dunguree with 5,000 pieces of 10 won coins to protest against the wrongful reimbursement claim of $3.4 million by the Navy on 121 Gangjeong villagers and activists on Jeju Island.

[The government claims that more than eight years of protests in Gangjeong village have harmed the Samsung Corporation, the lead construction contractor for the Navy base that will port US warships sent to the Asia-Pacific. Thus the enormous fines against leading villagers and activists.]

Dunguree, a filmmaker, is one of the 121 being fined by the government.
