Peace activist to be deported from South Korea

Emily WANG, a taiwanese peace activist and artist is waiting in Incheon airport, South Korea to be deported.

She has been working alongside South Korean peace activists in Gangjeong, Jeju island, since 2010 to fight against the construction of a naval base.


“I won’t sign the document which they asked me to sign, and I won’t leave by my own legs.  And I need a clear answer why I have to be out especially when I hold a legal visa by Republic of Korea, and when I applied my legal visa, I did explain well what I do in Korea. I work for peace. I am a peace worker”.
