APEX Express

APEX Express – March 6, 2014

Tonight’s show is dedicated to the people of Gangjeong Village on Jeju Island in Korea.  For eight years now, they have been struggling against the construction of a US-ROK naval base on the island.  The naval base is polluting their farmland, dividing families, and raising the threat of war throughout Northeast Asia.
