October 19, 2012 – LINK Organization Appeals to Students
Representatives of Liberty in North Korea (LINK) traveled to Don Bosco Prep on October 18 to address students about what they reported as “the atrocities of the North Korean regime.”
Human rights issues such as starvation, poverty, enslavement, information control, and lack of progress, was highlighted in a film depicting starving people, some of whom are enslaved in North Korean prison camps. Information coming out of the country is controlled, so it is difficult to monitor the living conditions there.
Many residents are trying to escape from North Korea, and LINK helps refugees to travel to freedom and resettlement.
DBP Student representatives of LINK joined in the plea to the audience to helping reframe the issues in North Korea from nuclear armament issues to human rights issues.
Money will be collected every Thursday during lunch times to help promote LINK. The students hope to join LINK in informing as many people as possible about the problems in North Korea. The school’s chapter meets every other Thursday after classes in Mr. Finn’s room.
