Founded in 2003 by survivors of political prison camps, NK Watch is a non-profit organization that aims to help end the human rights violations and restore the rights and freedoms of the people in North Korea.
Many North Korean people are sent to political prison camps and other detention facilities just because they criticize the system, cross the river between North Korea and China because of hunger, have religion, move to other regions, etc. What is happening to people in North Korea where no freedom of ideology, religion, movement, association, and human rights exist?
“Political prisoners in North Korea have no rights to have family and to eat meat and oil. The only rights they have are watching on each other and doing forced labor. If they resist it, they will be killed. I hope the day that they can live as human being would come sooner.”
“In North Korea, 200,000 political prisoners are being ruthlessly massacred in concentration camps and countless people are routinely rounded up and sent off to them every day. As it was with Hitler’s Nazi Party, Pyongyang’s Korean Worker’s Party provides no explanation whatsoever to the silent lambs on their way to the slaughterhouse. Are we to stand back and allow history to repeat itself?”
