I post this for two reasons.
1. North Korea is the worlds biggest story that still goes untold. People just have no idea. And North Korea hires, or better put, forces people to be on internet chat rooms and forums and try and argue with and contradict the facts on the ground about North Korea. Look for them here in the comments within a few days written in fairly classic East Asian bad syntax.
2. Because of a spoiled, stupid, entitled, lefty colostomy bag ‘protesting’ at the Occupy Ottawa thing on behalf of the union of Postal workers, people who make more for doing less with better job security than pretty much any other unskilled worker in Canada, who claimed that Stephen Harper was worse than Kim Jong Il or at least as bad as him.
Below is part of the article. Please click the link below to see the whole thing.
Kim Hye Sook suffered unbearable pain and emotional suffering when she was detained for 28 years in a secretive North Korean concentration camp. Brutal executions, starvation — even mothers killing and eating their children to ensure their own survival — were regular occurrences.
Kim — who miraculously escaped from the Bukchang prison camp back in 2003 – granted CBN News with the first American television news interview to discuss these horrendous conditions. She now lives in South Korea, with the details of her escape remaining classified for security reasons. This summer, she released a memoir entitled, “A Concentration Camp Retold in Tears.”
When she was 13-year-old, her tragic tale began. The year was 1975 and in the blink of an eye the young girl was captured alongside her entire family. After years of suffering, she didn’t taste freedom until she was 41-years-old. Kim explains:
“My entire family went to prison. Some were taken to the mountains; others were put in different labor camps all because of my grandfather’s one mistake: he escaped to South Korea during the Korean War.”
Today, Kim wears dark glasses to ensure that her identity remains concealed. While she lost seven family members in the re-education camp, she currently has two sisters and a brother who are still imprisoned. She described a typical day at the camp:
“I attended indoctrination classes in the morning. In the afternoon the children were sent to push trolleys in the coal mines, often without any safety gear.
People were dying in the mines. There were numerous mine collapses, so many injuries, people who lost their legs, many who were buried alive. It was horrible.
