'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)

On Sept. 1, police arrested three people including Mr. Kim Jong-Il, SPARK, Mr. Kim Min-Soo, an artist in the Gangjeong village, and Ms. Kim Ah-Hyun, one of key Jeju activists. Mr. Kim Jong-Il was going to the Jeju local court to submit an appeal against the court decision of prohibition of on 37 people's (originally 76) access to the Jeju naval base construction area(The government had filed a provisional disposition suit against 76 people on July 12, this year). The police excuse was that he had not responded to police call. The two others were arrested when they were driving car to the prison to meet the restrained on Aug. 24.

Youngsil says, "Mr. Kim Jong-Il is a management team leader here in Gangjeong Village. He went to the court to file a suit, when he came out 10 of police surrounded him to arrest. Then they took him to Jeju Dongbu police station."

"Kim Minsoo is a documentary film director & cartoonist who moved to Gangjeong village three years ago."(via Facebook)

On Sept. 2, police arrested 38 people as of 2pm. They arrested three people in the village community hall: Mr. Go Yu-Gi, co-chairman of the Pan-Island committee to stop military base in the Jeju Island, Mr. Jung Kyung-Bo and Ms. Kim Mi-Ryang, two Gangjeong villagers. During their raid in the people's key protest site on the same day, they arrested 35 people. Among confirmed are: Three villagers, seven students, two fathers and one reverend. Also 10 activists from the Island Committee against naval base(including Mr. Hong Ki-Ryong, the other co-chairmen of the committe) and group for solidarity with migrant people.


During police raid on Sept. 2, several people were carried to hospital. One injured in legs, another on his skin around eyes. The latter case has to get x-ray as his skin around eyes was torn by police shield. See photos on police violence, see HERE(*photos by Dauri)


As of Aug. 26, 7 people have been restrained and three including Gangjeong village mayor Kang Dong-Kyun, Mr. Kim Jong-Hwan, Gangjeong villager, and Mr. Kim Dong-Won, photographer, who are arrested on Aug. 24) have been in jail., while the other four have gotten probation or bail from their being arrested since April 9.



The Lee Myung-Bak government is enforcing the Jeju naval base construction by driving the situation of security public state, escalating its oppression upon the moment of people's resistance on Aug. 24. Indiscrimating human rights violation is concerned very much in the strugle against the Jeju naval base construction. More update and photos comes later. For a while, see FACEBOOK: RELEASE Mayor Kang and others!
