Jeju Island Peace Walk

Will Griffin is now on Jeju Island, South Korea on the annual peace walk opposing the Navy base built for US warships in Gangjeong village.

He made the video and writes:

Jeju Walk for Peace and Life 2017!

Rain, snow, or sunshine, we march for PEACE & LIFE!
South Korea, Jeju Island, Gangjeong Village.
#NoBaseJeju #NoTHAAD

(Seriously though, how do people have energy for song and dance after 7 hours of walking?!) 

Two teams walk around the entire Jeju Island - one going east and this photo is the west team.  Hundreds participate each summer.  This year there is a strong NO THAAD presence as well.
