Art Laffin, a founder of the Dorothy Day Catholic Worker in Washington, D.C. who organized a Campaign Nonviolence event in September, has just returned from Jeju Island in South Korea, where a U.S.-backed Korean naval base is being built. In response there has been massive resistance by the South Korean people to this new base over the past several years, including daily religious services and blockades at the gates.

Laffin has written a powerful account of this movement, published in the National Catholic Reporter, which you can read here.
