I’ve received a recent call for participation in a petition to stop the ‘unlawful and illegitimate’ construction of a naval base in Jeju Island, and hope that you may also consider signing this petition. This is organised by the National Association of Professors for Democracy in Korea (http://www.professornet.org), a pro-democracy organisation that was established in the late 1980s in the midst of Korea’s democratisation movement and has more than 1000 members.
Signing period is from today until April 11th. Please send international signatures to: firstname.lastname@example.org, stating your name, nationality, occupation and e-mail address.
