Green group chalks up one year of protest

Green group chalks up one year of protest

A Catholic environmental group has celebrated one year of daily Masses that form part of its protest against the Korean government’s highly controversial Four Rivers project. Catholic Solidarity for Deterrence of Four Major Rivers Project held its 366th Mass yesterday on farmland in Paldang on the banks of the Han River in Namyangju City. Ten priests, including retired Bishop Paul Choi Deog-ki of Suwon, concelebrated the special service. The group began celebrating the Masses on February 17, 2010 in its efforts to save the farmland which the government intends to turn into a public park. “We will fight to the end to save livelihoods and this farmland,” Father Joseph Cho Hae-bung, president of the Catholic group said yesterday.
