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.
You’ll hear from Kang Dong Kyun, mayor of Gangjeong Village, and Jeong Young Hee, a tangerine farmer and head of the Women’s Association.
We’ll also be talking with Eugene Kang and Hyejin Shim from Hella Organized Bay Area Koreans (HOBAK).
Karl Jagbandhansingh hosts.
