Human Rights in North Korea EVE

With just one day to go before the big week I thought it might be a cool idea to start up the UNOFFICIAL DIARY OF HUMAN RIGHTS IN NORTH KOREA WEEK.

The group met (not me cause I didn't check my email advising of the time) late this afternoon to set up the display at White Plaza. There are sections on refugees, hunger, ideology and more which give information on the issues of each and what is going on in DPRK. It all looks very cool. I'm pretty impressed as I had nothing to do with that part of the organisation but the guys did a great job. We are even going to have an interactive section where people can do a paint handprint to show support. And there will be copies of "The Hidden Gulag" available.

Tomorrow is DAY ONE of the Human rights week which is very exciting. Former Ambassador James R. Lilley will give a talk at 5:00pm at 320-105.

And don't forget to come by White Plaza to check out the display, do a handprint, and donate to
Helping Hands Korea!
