‘Taiwanese peace activist, Emily Wang, is being held by Korean Immigration and is to be deported for opposing the construction of that massive naval base in Gangjeong Village, Jeju Island, S. Korea. The base will serve the purposes of America’s “pivot to Asia” and will not ensure the security of S. Korea or S. E. Asia.

After a casual visit to Gangjeong Village, Emily discovered the struggle opposing the construction of the base and her conscience demanded she remain. While there, Emily discovered an amazing ability to create beautiful art depicting the struggle and the beauty of Gangjeong Village. Her art is being sold to support the activists who are struggling day and night for seven years.’ (Regis Tremblay)
