I'm raising money for a cause I care about, but I need your help to reach my goal! Please become a supporter to follow my progress and share with your friends.
Jeju, "The Island of Peace," is an island off the south western coast of Korea. Jeju is home to many animals that are not found on mainland Korea or anywhere else. It is also a UNESCO protected environment.
Because of the United States' "Pivot to Asia," the Korean government is building a naval base that will destroy the island and the type of life the islanders lead. The naval base will bring the construction of night clubs, bars, brothels, and thousands of American soldiers to the island. The people of Gangjeong (Gang-jung) are protesting to stop the naval base construction.
"The Ghosts of Jeju" by Regis Tremblay (video is the trailer to the film) is a brief history of the island and the struggle that the people of Gangjeong face every day. The film is eye-opening, shocking, and a must see. Please visit Regis's website http://www.theghostsofjeju.net/the-ghosts-of-jeju/ for more information.
I am just one person trying to make a difference by spreading the word about what is going on.
All proceeds from this fundraiser will go either directly to the protesters of Gangjeong or Regis Tremblay who is traveling across the country screening "The Ghosts of Jeju" at different film festivals.
