Kapa`a Library, Conference Room
Kuhio Highway, Kapaa

Inform and educate about the struggles of Jeju Island, South Korea’s people to protect their community and culture against the incursion of the US Military presence.

Presented by Kauai Alliance for Peace and Social Justice in support of Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space.

This is a shocking documentary about the struggle of the people of Jeju Island, South Korea. Set in the context of the American presence in Korea after World War II, the film reveals horrible atrocities at the hands of the U.S. Military Government of Korea.

Using previously secret and classified photos, film and documents, this will be the first English-language documentary about the struggle of the brave people of Gangjeong Village who are opposing the military advance of the United States, just as their parents and relatives did in 1947.

As then, they are being arrested, jailed, fined, and hospitalized for resisting the construction of a massive naval base that will accommodate America’s “pivot to Asia,” and will destroy their 400 year old village and their UNESCO protected environment.

And yet, the indomitable spirit of the villagers and their supporters, who have not lost hope in spite of overwhelming odds, will inspire and motivate everyone who believes there is a better way to live together on this planet.
