Re-post from No Base Stories of Korea, May 14, 2010

The below videos are the editions by Mr. Go Gwon-Il  (Gangjeong village, Jeju Island) of the original 812th ‘PD Note’ program (about 14 min.), ‘Why the Gangjeong Villagers, Jeju Island, Are Furious?’ broadcast by MBC on May 5, 2009.

The 1st part is about 10 min and the 2nd is about  3 min.

One can glance the navy, NIS, Island government’s psychology warfare against the villagers: how the naval base project has been brought up to the Gangjeong village in an undemocratic way, how it brought the conflicts among the villagers and how it caused the fury and frustration of the villagers.

The Jeju Sori has reported on the program on May 6, 2019.

The villagers use to say it was like a kind of military operation (meaning psychology and information warfare) when the navy has brought the project in the village. It was not only in Gangjeong, but in the 1st and 2nd naval base candidate areas of Hwasoon and Weemee as well).

This video will provide some clues on how the military utilizes  division strategy to install bases in  places.

The most striking evidence of the navy’s psychology operation against the villagers is shown around 8 min.

Here is the rough translation from that part.
