Send a letter to President



Send a letter to President Bush to stop the unjust eviction of farmers for the planned expansion of the U.S. military base Camp Humphreys in Pyeongtaek.



8/21/2006 - The South Korean government publicly announced that by the end of August it plans to forcibly remove ALL peace defenders who have reclaimed empty houses in Daechuri and Doduri villages of Pyeongtaek to support the villagers’ resistance against the U.S. military base expansion. There are approximately 200 villagers still refusing to surrender their land and homes. By removing all supporters, the government intends to use an isolation tactic to intimidate the Pyeongtaek villagers.  Without supporters acting as eyewitnesses to the government’s brutality we can guarantee that the situation in Pyeongtaek will worsen.  Already, we have seen what the government is capable of doing—with no remorse! In May, the government deployed over 15,000 military and riot police to the village of Pyeongtaek, resulting in serious injuries to more than 500 local farmers and activists, 524 arrests and a barbed wire fence all around the farmland.


KCPT urgently requests the international community to send a letter to the U.S. President, South Korean President and South Korean Ministry of Defense to demand (please refer to the attached statement for more details): 


STOP the Forced Eviction of Pyeongtaek Farmer &

Re-negotiate the Planned Expansion of the U.S. Military Base in Pyeongtaek


Please deliver your letter by August 28 (Friday, Korean time) to the South Korean government, U.S government, and send a copy to KCPT via e-mail or fax. By your simple actions, we can alert the government, public and media that people around the world are keeping a close watch on Pyeongtaek. Your action will have a tremendous impact. Please send your letter and circulate this message far and wide.  Also, stay tuned as the situation in Pyeongtaek is critical and is in need of your attention--we will keep you informed with more updates.
