Save Jeju Island: Elder Gangjeong villlagers plead for return of homes, farms, village, livelihoods, & Jeju as a "Peace Island"

These elder women are bowing before Jeju Island government officials, asking that their ancestral homes and farms, which the South Korean military/government seized from them, without due process, be returned to them, and that Jeju remain a "Peace Island." The women were forcefully removed after this photograph was taken. Photo: SPARK (Solidarity for Peace and  Reunification of Korea), the Pax Christi Int. affiliate in S. Korea)
