Anti-nuclear action impact in Korea
Peace, Democracy and Law, 13/03/2012
Jeju Island Naval base construction site, Korea. Anti-nuclear protestors cut through the fence and entered the construction site on Friday, March 9. The activists, among them Angie Zelter from Trident Ploughshares (RLA 2001), were arrested and held at Jeju police station for two days.
The protests against the US backed Naval base on the Korean island have now entered politics: Opposition parties made a common pledge to halt the construction and the Korean Bishops’ Congress will include the Naval base as a major discussion point.
