News about North Korea

LeavWorld has a wealth of information about the horrific lives of the North Korean people. It is a crime against humanity that the world is ignoring this little dictator to run a country while at the same time he is starving, murdering, torturing, and abusing his countrymen.

Please visit his site to see all the links he has so you, too, can have your voice heard. You don't know the extent of the problem in North Korea? There are links there to convince you that what I am saying is true.

I will tease you with a few:
North Korea fact sheet
Ideas for College Campus Awareness Campaigns (from the North Korea Freedom Coalition).
Visit this page on the State Department website to learn how to contact Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
Christopher Hitchens, “Worse than 1984: North Korea, slave state,” Slate, 2 May 2005.
Many of these are from Breakpoint, a Christian organization run by a man who cares deeply about the human rights of everyone. He is also concerned that we do what is good, edifying, helpful, and right.

If you are an atheist or of a different religion, this will not bother you if you care about others. Try to ignore the God stuff if you must, but I implore you to at least try. It is time we started banning together to get the politians to listen to us, and I believe we can. Thank you, and have a great day.
