'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)

Civil Society Organization Press Interview
People Oppose! Reject the Bill on the Agreement! '

Yellow signs say,
"No, Re-Dispatch to Afghanistan"


And other sign says,
'We oppose the dispatch to Afghanistan that strengthens SK-US War Alliance'



The Civilian Alliance Against the Redeployment of Troops to Afghanistan, composed of 69 organizations in South Korea had the press interview in front of the National Assembly of South Korea, at 11am, on Feb. 18, 2010.

The organizations clamed, “We denounce the submission of the bill on the agreement of the re-dispatch to Afghanistan to the National Defense Committee and urge the rejection of the bill [by the National Defense Committee].”

The bill has been submitted to the Defense Committee of the National Assembly, and is expected to be passed by the general meeting of the assembly within this month.

Otherwise, the organizations announced that they would hold the ‘Anti-War Peace Action Day against the Re-Dispatch to Afghanistan; for the Stopping of Occupation; and for the stopping of Massacre.’ At 3pm, on coming 20th (Saturday) of this month.
