2. Government Labor Union Workers Visit Gangjeong
공무원 노동자들, 강정을 방문하다.
Upon the anniversary of 4.3 uprising, many people in mainland visited the Gangjeong. Among them were workers of the Pan-Korean Government Workers' Labor Union. About 270 workers visited the Gangjeong to tour the naval base planned coast and hear the voice of the Gangjeong villagers. The workers arrived in Gangjeong in nine buses and had to visit to Gangjeong in several groups because of its many numbers.
To be the public servant of the people, we will run from the Mt. Halla to Mt. Baekdu,
with all our energy.'
The tour participants of the Jeju 4. 3 history and Olles, Pan-Korean Government Workers’ Labor Union took the photo with the visitors and villagers including the mayor.

The Joongduk coast, the planned naval base area and the road to the Gangjeong village were intentionally excluded from the course of the Olle (올레, meaning ‘a narrow pathway’) tour that has recently been sought by many tourists for its joy to walk within the living nature of Jeju and to be close to the intimate lives of the Jeju Island villagers. So the villagers made themselves the marks of the ‘Olle’ tour so that the visitors could see the most beautiful Olle course in the Jeju Island, that is however, planned for the naval base. The exhibition of the photos on the wall and paintings on the road are drawn to remind people that it should be one of the Olle courses but intentionally erased from the tour guidebook because it was the planned naval base area.

3. Joongduk Coast and Goorumbee 중덕 해안과 구럼비
The Joongduk coast is where the Gangjeong villagers would come to enjoy and work with its cool indigo waters, the soft basalt rocks and the living creatures there. The Goorumbee is eastward from the Joongduk coast. When I asked the head of the tent vigil, what the Goorumbee meant, he said I should ask to the mayor. So there was laughter. When I saw the Goorumbee, there were more small round ponds in the Goorumbee than in the Joongduk coast, giving the more secluded and quieter impression than the Joongduk coast.
Mr. Yang says, the people set up the dead tree that had flown into by tide as the ‘Sottade’, a pole by the traditional custom to honor and protect the village. The tree was set up in the spot where the waters produced by the lava phenomenon and sea meets each other. Here is one of the impressive Goorumbee sites.
The yellow flags of 'Death-Defiantly, No Naval Base' are everywhere in the coast.
