In celebration of the International Save North Korean Refugees Day on the 22 nd of September 2017; Defense Forum Foundation, Free North Korea Radio , Centre for Human Rights, Africa Solidarity for Sahrawi and North Korea Freedom Coalition cordially invite you to a seminar titled: Human Rights in North Korea

For decades, mainstream media and global politics have focused on the ‘crazy Kim’s’ and the Nuclear Weapons’. North Korea is treated as a threat towards a hopeless tragedy. Meanwhile, twenty-four million people–ordinary people like you and me–face the world’s most repressive government. But they have been lost in this definition of North Korea. The over politicized and securitized narrative has created a barrier of apathy, preventing global citizens from engaging with the subject, causing a huge deficit in the support of North Korean people.
