Darfur Honoring Home Daechuri

How is it possible that a land dedicated to harvest and farming can be turned into a land dedicated to warfare? From peace to police, prosperity to pain, Daechuri in Pyeongtaek, South Korea is now home to the United States Camp Humphreys Army base. Hamile, community organizer and political activist, works alongside the elders of Daechuri for daily candle light vigils to demonstrate their demands for the United States and Korean governments to work democratically and re-open dialogue about the military expansion. This sculpture of Korea, divided by barbed wire, is one of many art pieces that have been made throughout Daechuri as a means of creative nonviolent expression, calling for the government to honor their home.
