Elucidations by the defectors on Brutality of North Korea
Yeonmi Park, a North Korean defector and human rights activist who eluded to China in 2007 and settled in South Korea in 2009. The young girl fled for her freedom and dissipates the grave reality of North Korean government across the world. The novice was abducted at the time of birth and has been a fraction of oppressed North Koreans. Her family faced starvation after her father was sent to a labor camp for smuggling. They fled to China, where Park and her mother fell into the hands of human traffickers before dodging to Mongolia.
Park rose to global fame after she delivered a speech at the One Young World 2014 Summit in Dublin, Ireland — an annual summit that draws together young people from around the world to build up resolutions to endemic global problems.
Yeonami is now an advocate for sufferers of human trafficking in China due to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and works to uphold human rights in North Korea and around the globe.
When I was four years old, I was warned by my mother not to even whisper. The birds and the mice couldn’t hear me. I admit it, I thought the North Korean dictator could read my mind…At the age of 13, My mother allowed herself to be raped in order to protect me….Death or Dignity, armed with nights we were allowed to kill ourselves. I felt only stars were with us, cited Park in One young world 2014 summit.
Hyeonseo Lee, the author of the famous book, The Girl with Seven Names is the North Korean defector. She eluded from North Korea and succeedingly guided her family to escape from the country from China and Laos. She lived 10 years of secrecy in China and later on escaped to South Korea.
In the 1960s, during the chaotic years of famine and the Cultural Revolution in China, many Chinese people sought refuge in North Korea. Beginning in the late 1990s, the situation was reversed, and North Koreans have been fleeing their oppressive government ever since. The Chinese authorities should remember the hospitality their compatriots received in North Korea and treat desperate escapees with dignity and respect , told Lee Hyeon seo to New York Times.
Sadistic Background of North Koreans
North Koreans have been struggling to make things right for themselves by sneaking across the border into China to elude oppression. The movements of people tightened after Kim’s death, the cruelty of the government included families living in close proximity to the border areas to take turns standing guard as well as having strong official warnings that three generations of a family would be ruined if caught defecting. The cruelty additionally commands having the defector being executed on the spot.
