'The forming construction business for the ceremony of the setting to work on the naval base was stopped due to the protest of the Gangjeong village people on the morning of Jan. 6, 2010. '
However, in 30minunutes when the construction began, about 30 Gangjeong village people gathered to the site and prevented it, demanding that the navy should do the ceremony for setting to work after the result of the administrative lawsuit.
As the protest voice of the village people heightened, the construction workers who were contracted by the navy, had to stop the work, leaving their equipments, without much conflict.
According to the activists in the Jeju Solidarity for Participatory Self-Government & Environmental Preservation and the Solidarity for Peace And Reunification of Korea (SPARK), the village people started the tent vigil on Jan. 7 to stop the naval base construction that is without people’ s will and agreement.
