'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)

Stop attack on Gangjeong village on Jeju

Dear ROK Embassy Staff:

I am sad and angry to hear about the massive police and military attack on the non-violent people of Gangjeong village today on Jeju Island.

They are trying to protect their sacred lands, rocks, coral, fishing and farming culture. What could be wrong with them doing that?

It is criminal that the ROK government is attacking these villagers.

Our organization has been following this case and has been helping to build support for the villagers. This whole situation is making your government look very bad and giving the ROK a bad reputation as a military dictatorship.

We demand an end to this persecution of the Gangjeong villagers and end to the plans to build this Navy base. We know that US Navy Aegis destroyers, outfitted with so-called "missile defense" systems, will be ported there as part of the US strategy to surround and "manage" China.

ROK government is being drawn into a deadly and provocative US strategy that will only make the Asia-Pacific region more insecure.

Listen to your own citizens and stop this Navy base now.

In peace,

Bruce K. Gagnon
