Sang-hong Lee

Sang-hong Lee is the Secretary-General of Gyeongju Korean Federation for Environmental Movement. Sang-hong Lee has been active in the campaign against the construction of nuclear transmission towers in Miryang. To transmit electricity to Seoul, sixty-nine transmission towers are to be constructed in Miryang, and a nuclear plant is currently being built in Busan. Human rights defenders have protested against their construction for eight years due to concerns about the impact of the project on the environment as well as on access to land for local communities.
