In Nov 1990, 8 thousands residents in Anmyon Island violently protested against
the governments's announcement to establish a nuclear waste dump in the island.
The residents who, until then, had been promised and encouraged by the rural
government's plan to develop the small island into a national sea park and
international resort area, fired police box and refused their childrens to enter
the schools. The 10 days-long heavy struggle finally leaded to the
governement's clean slate.
The graffitti on the wall, up right, says 'desperate oppose against nuke.'
