The people here criticizing the Woo Keun-Min Jeju Island government and navy that they don’t hear his cry and people’s voice against naval base construction, prayed for his health. People here have appealed to him with tears to stop his fast but Yang’s determination to fight at the risk of his life have been very strong.
On May 14, Jeong Woon-Hyun, a former editor of Omynews reported in his blog about his thought to visit the village and to meet Yang Yoon-Mo in jail. You can see it here.
Otherwise, Kang Dong Kyun, the mayor of the village having interview with the Headline Jeju, expressed his position regarding Woo’s remark that he may consider the Truth Investigation committee’s proposal for temporary naval base construction by the end of June when the Truth investigation Committee of the National Assembly reports its investigation result.
Kang said that it was unreasonable and claimed that the Woo government should stop the construction at least by the end of December when the Island government would announce its plan for local development.
Kang said that the plan itself is premised on the realization of naval base and he and the villagers would not respond to it. In other words, he and the villagers would not join that discussion on the plan even though construction is temporarily stopped.
On the question of the measures, he replied that there should be certain construction stop and public discussion.
Quoting that the Ministry of Defense has been in consideration to abandon its policy on the ‘Oceanic power,’ he claimed that the government should cut the budget on naval base and rather convert it into other various business other than naval base construction.
Otherwise, the Jejudomin Ilbo reported that the ecology system of the Gangjeong village have begun to be destroyed with the navy’s execution to relocate the red feet crabs to another place. With the plan to cement all over the construction site by the end of May, not only the red-feet crabs, the government-designated 2nd endangered species, but the other creatures living there would be in critical danger, it reported.
