Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is in North Korea for talks with Kim Jong-un over the Trump administration’s agreement to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula. The meeting came amid protests by South Koreans opposed to the U.S. anti-missile system known as THAAD. This is peace activist Kim Jong-hee, who’s been protesting against a THAAD missile battery deployed in a farming village south of Seoul.

Kim Jong-hee: “We can endure the physical exhaustion of coming to protests every day or occasionally clashing with the police. The harder thing is that we have to live with the fact that we can’t really stop them from using public power, and the construction, which we never agreed to.”
