Ganjeong Village Peace Activists
The Ganjeong Village Peace Activists are villagers on Jeju Island, South Korea, who have nonviolently resisted the existence of a U.S. naval base on their island. Villagers have opposed the naval base since it was first proposed in 1993, and they have led protests since 2007, before construction began.
A 2012 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported the villagers’ campaign against militarism. The Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space served as the fiscal sponsor for this grant.
