'저는 그들의 땅을 지키기 위하여 싸웠던 인디안들의 이야기를 기억합니다. 백인들이 그들의 신성한 숲에 도로를 만들기 위하여 나무들을 잘랐습니다. 매일밤 인디안들이 나가서 백인들이 만든 그 길을 해체하면 그 다음 날 백인들이 와서 도로를 다시 짓곤 했습니다. 한동안 그 것이 반복되었습니다. 그러던 어느날, 숲에서 가장 큰 나무가 백인들이 일할 동안 그들 머리 위로 떨어져 말과 마차들을 파괴하고 그들 중 몇몇을 죽였습니다. 그러자 백인들은 떠났고 결코 다시 오지 않았습니다….' (브루스 개그논)

Text Fwd: [Statement] Is the Lee Myung Bak Government, By All Means, to Submit the Proposal for the Agreement for the Dispatch, to the National Assembly?

* It is the unofficial translation of the statement by the Civilian Alliance Against the Redeployment of Troops to Afghanistan, composed of 68 organizations in South Korea, on Nov. 30, 2009.


“The Lee Myung Bak government has decided to submit the proposal for the agreement for the dispatch, to the National Assembly, in December, after the passage by the cabinet meeting next week. The government, right after its decision to re-dispatch to Afghanistan, is intending to promptly submit the proposal for the agreement to the National Assembly, as well. However, while more than half of the [South Korean] people oppose the re-dispatch, is the “no understanding” government, by all means, willing to re-deploy the troops for the massacre war, by submitting the proposal for the agreement for the dispatch, to the National Assembly where the majority is the Grand National Party (* the conservative right wing party)?”

Text Fwd:[SPARK] Statement on the result of the South Korea-United States Summit meeting, Nov. 20, 2009 (unofficial translation)

It is the unofficial translation of the statement by the SPARK (Solidarity for Peace And Reunification of Korea) on Nov. 20, 2009, after the President Obama’s visit of South Korea (Nov. 18~19). The SPARK is the one of the representative organizations regarding the issues of peaceful reunification in South Korea. It was one of the first organizations that made a statement on the result of Obama visit to South Korea. While it can not be seen as representing the view of the whole South Korean movement, one may glimpse some points that the South Korean activists have to say, including the issue of re-dispatch to Afghanistan. For the issue of Afghanistan, please see No. 1.
The translation is by Agatha Haun (dillardhaun@gmail.com) who did a proofreading and suggested the helpful revisions as well on the 1st draft by the No base stories of Korea. Thanks very much, Agatha!
