President Lee Myung-bak: Save Jeju Island
To President Lee Myung-bak:
We urge you to immediately stop construction of the naval base and protect South Korea's democracy by ending the violent crackdown on protesters. We stand with the residents of Jeju in their non-violent efforts to protect the island’s rich marine ecosystems and preserve peace in this increasingly fragile and militarized region.

Jeju Island is so magnificent it’s being considered as one of the 7 natural wonders of the world, but the South Korean and US governments want to build a massive naval base and launching pad for ballistic missiles. Fearing national outrage, the government has suppressed the story and police are intimidating brave protesters to drop their resistance. Only a national outcry now could save this pristine coastline.
We have no time to lose -- let's all raise our voices together and stand with the courageous protesters to Save Jeju Island. Sign the urgent petition on the right, then forward this to everyone -- it will be delivered directly to the President:
