Even on Saturday(March 5) and Sunday(March 7), the constructions in the
naval base planned base area were continued by 6pm.
Tensions were brought when the villagers discovered on Sunday afternoon that
the Daerim Industry Co. and its subcontracting company workers were building
small steel columns that marked the sites to set up thick steel columns to
support the 2.5 meter fence that would be built in the part of the planned
naval base area, extending beyond the naval base field office area. The
villagers including the mayor, Kang Dong-Kyun strongly demanded them to let
the villagers meet the chief responsible personnel of the construction and
despite that the Daerim Co. personnel attempted to continue to proceed
construction. However, they had to stop construction for a while amidst
strong protest by the villagers.
The Daerim personnel had not worn their safety hats but wore those later,
being conscious of villagers’ cameras and got villagers’ protest when they
took camera of the villagers.
