First, the Gangjeong village that preserves the worldwide beauty is not appropriate [for the naval base] for any reasons.
- Dec. 12, 2002, designated as the preservation area for the living creatures by the UNESCO
- Natural Memorial NO. 442 according to the Cultural Properties [Protection Law]
- Natural protection area
- Designated as the ecology preservation area by the Ministry of the Environment.
- Five maritime preservation areas, designated by the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries.
- Designated as the preservation area, it is the worldwide acknowledged gorgeous environmental protection area.
Second, the base-militarization would be only the powder magazine of the North East Asia.
Seeing from the geopolitical viewpoint, militarization of the Jeju Island would only increase the tension with the vicinity countries and it would not do any influence for peace.
Third, the construction of the Gangjeong naval base is procedurally wrong.
There has been no process of public consensus such as the fair for the villagers.
Forth, the Ministry of the National Defense and the Jeju Island Government had announced that they would not construct the naval base without the villagers’ agreement. But the Gangjeong villagers’ vote has been ignored.
Gangjeong villagers practiced the villagers’ own vote on August 20, 2007: among 1050 electors, 725 voted and the voters in opposition were 680 ballots (94%), and favor ballots were 36 while cancellation ballots were 9.
Fifth, the Gangjeong villagers whose livelihood communities are broken are experiencing the acute suffering for three years.
It has been long time even families & relatives have been distant one another because of the pro &con on the naval base issue and disagreement due to the conflict among the villagers. Can the naval base that is constructed in this situation possibly co-live with the villagers?
Even though the government gives us millions billions of money, we will never sell our village. It is our wish that we remain as the peaceful Gangjeong village where life overflows, not as the naval base affiliated village.
With your lasting participation and concern, we would block the naval base construction without fail.
Please join the petition.
Gangjeong village people’s council
Countermeasure committee [against the naval base], Gangjeong Village
Please keep Gangjeong village!
Absolutely majority of the villagers oppose the naval base construction.
We will not sell the beautiful sea, soft corals inhabiting there, our sea surrounding our lives with a few money.
The naval base construction that is being willy-nilly constructed, without keeping the commonsensical construction should be blocked by your concern and participation collected.
