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.
