IHEARTJEJU Valentines for Peace in Jeju Today / Creative Propmaking Feb. 18 & 25th in NYC

This Valentines Day, show your love for Jeju Island and Gangjeong Village, which are being threatened by the construction of a naval base for South Korean and US warships. Submit your photo to http://iheartjeju.tumblr.com, a tumblr dedicated to showing the world’s beautiful memories at Jeju and how many people support the struggle to stop the naval base construction. Contribute further to the fight at the ‘take action’ link and please spread the word!

If you can: please attach this badge to your facebook photo and to the photo you submit on the site. A free photo editing service like plixr http://pixlr.com/ will help you to add the badge to your photo. (Note: Open both your image and the attached png file, copy the png badge, and paste onto the photo. Resize, flatten, save, and send!)
We will have the site ongoing through White Day.

For those in NYC, we invite you to participate in a day of creative action. The people of Jeju said, “Touch not one stone, one flower” – yet every day the bulldozers are smashing the pristine and fragile ecosystem of the coastline. So we are bringing everything that is displaced to the NY shores – and we have two days of prop-making coming up and an action in early March.

We will be making props, from crabs to frogs to oranges – all the things that are being destroyed in the process of building this base.
