You’re invited! Join us for Save North Korean Refugees Day
September 24th, 2015
Events are being planned worldwide by the North Korea Freedom Coalition for Save North Korean Refugees Day on September 24th, 2015. The situation facing North Korean refugees in China is worse than ever before. Ever since the reign of Kim Jong Eun’s terror began, the situation for North Koreans seeking freedom has gotten worse as part of Kim’s efforts to stop North Koreans from escaping his tyranny. Complicit in this reign of terror and assisting the regime’s crimes against humanity is President Xi Jinping in China. This makes the annual Save North Korean Refugees Day critically important to focus on this issue that receives such little attention, but could be solved overnight if China simply followed its international treaty obligations.
Thus, the coalition needs country and city volunteers around the world to help with plans for the annual Save North Korean Refugees Day. This year the coalition is especially targeting action in the countries that are major trading partners with China. The level of involvement is up to the individual coordinators, but the one requirement is that a letter/petition be delivered to the People’s Republic of China embassy or consulate in those targeted cities on that day. Events are also being held in solidarity, including film screenings, prayer vigils, etc. For example, in Washington, D.C., in addition to the delivery of a petition, an evening candlelight vigil will be held.
For those in the Washington, D.C. area: Please consider helping hand deliver petitions to the Chinese embassy, as well as attending a special event hosted by NKinUSA and a special Candlelight Vigil held at 8 pm across from the Chinese embassy. More details to follow.
