With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

WALKING THE DISPUTED GANGJEONG ROAD



Peace activist Rain Jung walks down the farm road leading to the peace camp. This is where the battle to prevent the naval base construction is taking place. This road was once lined with vibrant greenhouses and farms. Now it is often a place where riot police clash with nonviolent peace activists and environmentalists. Jung offers commentary on the unlawful arrest of activist Sung-Hee Choi, the environmental damage caused by Samsung and other issues. For more information visit http://www.savejejuisland.org/

"For any person of common sense, building a naval base on Jeju sounds absurd. The island, designated by the central government as `Peace Island' in 2005, is home not only to its 530,000 residents but also to nine UNESCO-designated Global Geo Parks, three World Natural Heritage sites and a Biosphere Reserve."
