There are many ways that YOU can assist the global campaign to Save Jeju. We need your support!
1. Call the Korean Embassy
Contact the Korean embassy or consulate in your country and let them know that Jeju does not want a naval base! The militarization of Jeju Island runs contrary to its designation as the “Island of World Peace.” It will also undermine tourism, threaten the fragile island environment and contribute to the destabilization of an already stressed security climate.
2. Email Minister of Defense
Write the South Korean Defense Minister (firstname.lastname@example.org) and demand a halt to construction of the naval base. Explain how a base that is directed at China is the beginning of a dangerous game that does not protect the future of South Korea – it undermines it.
3. Email Jeju Governor
Write Jeju Island Governor Woo Keun-Min (email@example.com) and tell him how you feel about the military base that is being built on the pristine “Island of World Peace” Nine out of ten Gangjeong residents do not want this base.
6. Contact the Media
Spread the word about the inspiring resistance in Jeju! Contact the media about this struggle . Urge them to cover this important story of peace, justice, and environmental care.
Sign the petition by international students demanding an end to the Jeju naval base construction project. After signing please share the petition with your social networks and friends.
8. Cultural Relics
Send a message to the Korean Cultural Heritage Administration (CHA) and tell them that the relics discovered on the naval base site should result in an immediate halt to construction.
