CCP Trainer Turned Away in South Korea

E-mail Print

Elliott AdamsFrom www.veteransforpeace.org: Yesterday South Korea stopped two US veterans who had served to defend Korea, including CCP trainer Elliott Adams, from entering the country. After two days of travel these US citizens were left in no-man's-land between Korea and China. They had come back to Korea at the request of the people, to support the people of a small island (Jeju) off the south end of Korea. They had been struggling for months to protect their culture and their way of life. Men and women have used their bodies to block giant cranes bent on destruction. At risk are the sacred rocks of  Gangjeong, the fresh water springs in the rocks, and the coral reefs that support the island's marine fishery and endangered species. The area is linked to three UNESCO World Natural Heritage sites, nine UNESCO Geo-Parks, and it is designated as a Global Biosphere Reserve. But all this and the life on Jeju island is to be destroyed or put at risk for one more naval base.
