A promotion video on the Kunsan Peace March on Sept. 11, 2010 (Korean)
2010년 9월 11일 군산 평화 대행진을 알리는 홍보 영상

평화와 통일을 여는 사람들 군산 지부 사이트에서 퍼왔읍니다.
The video purposed for the public announcement of the Kunsan peace march on Sept. 11, 2010 was made by the preparatory committee for the Kunsan peace march, 2010(composed of many peace organizations in Kunsan). It is introduced in the Kunsan branch of the SPARK site and also in the SPARK newsletter, thankfully forwarded by Mr. Jung Dong-Suk, Secretary of the Gwangju-Jeonnam branch of the SPARK. The video maker introduces oneself as Doongeuli at the end of the movie.
It is a hilarious and brilliant video that uses the scenes of the movie, Avatar, in parody, to express people’s will to fight against their counterpart, U.S. imperialism & militarism, in the middle of the scenes. It is the movie that the people who know Koreans cannot but laugh and agree with its sense.
In the beginning and middle, the movie introduces the Kunsan USFK base as the command headquarter of the overseas US military, located in the Okseo myeon, City of Kunsan, Jeollabuk-do, South Korea and as one of the most painful sites in the modern history of Korea. Even the address of base is California. The Kunsan USFK base currently 3.40 million pyeong (about 14 million square meters) is continuously being expanded at the cost of the nearby villages that will be demolished. The U.S. military is also demanding 10 million pyeong (about 3o million square meters) area size of land called Saemankeum nearby the AFB, for its use.
An old female farmer who curses the base saying that the Koreans should not allow the USFK bases in their land from the beginning and tells that the USFK should be expelled by protests.
The movie also shows some scenes of the peace march in 2009 in which hundreds of people from various fields and regions including the activists from Pyeongtaek joined. The people from Okinawa also came to the march to express their solidarity. For more information on the Kunsan AFB and peace march 2009, refer to the below blogs.
