Daechuri Activists March to Seoul

Activists who have made Daechuri and Doduri their homes set out this Monday on a Peace March from Daechuri to Seoul. They are marching to denounce and mourn the destruction of Daechuri and Doduri (see previous post), and to demand an end to the planned base expansion in Pyeongtaek. The activists (Pyeongtaek Jikimis) are holding vigils every night in cities along their way. They are joined at their vigils by other opponents of the Pyeongtaek base expansion to sing, talk to local people about the base expansion, and give out out pea plant seeds from Daechuri gardens. The seeds are a symbol of Daechuri and Doduri as farming communities, and of the hope that Daechuri and Doduri farmers' struggle has inspired.
The activists will arrive in Seoul on Saturday, April 14th, where they will hold a vigil and press conference in front of the Blue House (the president's house).

For more information (in Korean) on participating in the the march call 016-498- 2017.
