Preserving the Island of World Peace – Noam Chomsky and Matthew Hoey on the struggle to stop a missile defense base on Jeju Island, South Korea

We’ve written on this blog before about this struggle to stop constuction of a missile defense base on Jeju Island, South Korea, as well as the fight against U.S. military bases on Okinawa. And of course Peace Action is a co-sponsor of a conference in Washington later this month on Asia-Pacific Peace and Security, where these issues will be highlighted .

Here is the latest on the struggle on Jeju Island, in the Korean newspaper The Hankyoreh, by Noam Chomsky and Matthew Hoey.

Also, for those in the DC area, there will be a protest at the White House state dinner for South Korean President Lee Myung-Bak October 13 at 5:30 pm.  It’s important for international solidarity with the people of Jeju, and for the U.S. and especially the Korean media, that there be a strong protest of the base when President Lee when he visits the White House.

Finally, see Matt Hoey discussing the struggle on the lovely shoreline of the island.
