Almost everyone in North Korea is being suppressed by their government and they have no human rights because of its weird socialist system. They have no freedom of expression, religion, movement, and press. North Korea strongly rejects all reports of human rights violations and accuses the defectors of lying and promoting a pro-West agenda North Koreans can’t criticize their government, actually their so-called kings, Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il, because they will be imprisoned or executed. They can be killed for nothing! It is just to maintain North Korea’s system, the Juche system. It is very inhuman. We have to be concerned about North Koreans who are being suppressed. As a student of the Department of North Korean Studies, I’m interested in North Korea problem. Issues concerned about North Korea are very important to me. To resolve the matter of North Koreans human rights, we can join human rights groups, for example, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, Doctors without Borders, The Red Cross.
