Feature - South Korean Anti-War Village
Located well south of Seoul, the farming town of Soseong-ri has long been isolated from saber-rattling between North and South Korea. This all changed when the 160-person community discovered that a US THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system) unit was going to be deployed there. Since then, Soseong-ri has become a center of Korean anti-war sentiment. Fearing that the presence of THAAD units will anger China and make the South vulnerable to attack, thousands of demonstrators have been congregating in Soseong-ri to voice opposition to this new defense program.
