S. Korean Religionists Protest against Construction of Jeju Naval Base
Pyongyang, April 18 (KCNA) -- A general meeting of the south Korean Christian Presbyterian Church held a prayer meeting on the emergency situation at Kangjong Village, Sogwipho City, Jeju Province on April 3 in protest against the construction of the Jeju naval base.

The participants denounced the authorities for pushing forward the base construction despite the unanimous opposition of people from all walks life.

Several religionists were unreasonably arrested and suppressed while protesting against the construction, they said, demanding the authorities set free those arrested at once.

They said that the organization would continue actions demanding a halt to the construction of the Jeju naval base.
