JEJU ISLAND
EDM #2883
Tabled 15 March 2012
2010-12 Session
That this House acknowledges the five-year struggle of the Gangeong villagers of the World Heritage site of Jeju Island against their government's plans to build a huge naval base which will wipe out totally the village and nearby coastline's unique ecosystems and farmlands and fishing grounds; notes the forced arrests of local residents, priests and international activists who require the UK's support; most significantly notes that the naval base will afford the USthe right to have a station there which may increase tensions between the US and China and jeopardise South Korea's national security; and calls on the Government to make representations to the Jeju government against the building of the naval base.
