Oh Doo Hee
It’s hard to summarize Oh’s activist life in a few sentences. Since the student movement against the dictatorship in the 70’s throughout the span of next 40 years she never stopped being ‘active’ in the field without for once attempting to turn her activism for a political career. She was a leading figure in the labor movement in the 80’s and became a fugitive from the government oppression for many years. In 1987 she met Fr. Mun Jeong Hyun, a historical figure in the Korean pro-democracy movement and catholic priest who founded Catholic Priests Association for Justice. Their union is also quite meaningful in the perspective of the Korean left, as they represented two historically segregated branches of the liberal democracy movement: NL (National Liberation) and PD (People’s Democracy). Together they founded “Peace Wind (Pyeong-Hwa-Ba-Ram)” and have been the major influence organizing the anti-US military presence in S.Korea in such cases of “Two middle school girls’ incident”, US Bombing range in Maehyang village, the US military expansion in Daechu-Ri and finally in Gangjeong village. Since they settled in Gangjeong village in 2011, Oh has been organizing many grass root activities including the village farmers’ cooperation to fundraise the movement (Gangjeong Peace Coop.) and also founded St.Francisco Peace Center for peace education. She’s also a well-known documentary filmmaker whose films deal with the incidents that she witnessed and participated in, such as Yong-san tragedy (urban gentrification issue) and inter-national female workers organization at Asia Swany (solidarity among female laborers between Korea and Japan).
Choi Hye Young
Hye Young arrived in Gangjeong in 2011 and since 2013 has been working as a director of the non-profit organization, Gangjeong Friends, which support the various activities in the village including the monthly allowances for the resident activists. She mainly deals with the publicity and strategic media outreach of the anti-naval base movement and has organized numerous conferences and presentations where she moderated. She’s also currently doing her MA in Sociology at Jeju University.
Bahndi is one of the founding members of Inter-Island Solidarity for Peace of the Sea, an annual gathering of activists, scholars and artists from different islands in the Pacific, mainly from Okinawa, Jeju and Taiwan. She also runs and resides in the collaborative project space called “Gong-gan (space)” which is the open space for the activists to rest and relax and often hosts the visiting allies. Since the beginning of 2018 she also works at the café and exhibition hall called Peace Island, which functions as the village center for the visitors and allies.
Emily, born in Taiwan, first came to Gangjeong as part of the peace-building group called Frontiers who often dispatched their members to the village. In 2013 her entry to Korea was rejected as well as numerous other international activists during the 2011-2013 period, which was only lifted later in the same year. She worked in various groups in the village including the International Team and Inter-Island Solidarity for Peace of the Sea and deals with the communication in Mandarin. A talented painter, she has had exhibitions in and outside of the village her the paintings and illustrations of which main theme and inspiration are the Jeju nature, ocean and Gureombi.
