Robert Redford Joins Movement to Save Jeju Island

Via Save Jeju Island:
Actor, film director, environmentalist and Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) Trustee Robert Redford speaks out in support of Jeju Island, “I am moved and impressed that the residents near the coastline have been waging a fierce nonviolent struggle to stop the base. They’ve used their bodies to block bulldozers and cement trucks, sacrificed their personal freedom, been beaten and imprisoned, and paid heavy fines...I think the least that environmentalists, peace activists and supporters of democracy can do is express our outrage.”
Read all of Redford's article, "The Battle for Jeju Island: How the Arms Race is Threatening a Korean Paradise," at On Earth: A Survival Guide for the Planet.
