Who Cares?

The Daily Mail

 

Strange don’t cha think, how TPTB like us to know about atrocities being committed by countries that our warmongering government will no doubt one day be up for invading… In particular, North Korea.

Its almost as if we are being reminded, or more accurately brainwashed, into believing that we are lucky not to live in such an oppressed nation.

And fuck me! it actually works on the vast majority of the moronic population, despite the fact that we are getting to that stage rather rapidly.

Take the Daily Mails article (found below) which tell us about 20,000 North Korean prisoners who have disappeared into thin air.

Course, we have no choice other than to accept this type of news that is so often pumped out in the MSM.

In fact, it kinda makes you wonder where the MSM get their info from since North Korea is such a secretive country.

Not that the MSM are known for their accurate or even honest reporting. Fuck me, they cant even get the local news right.

Never the less, the 20,000 missing prisoners story may be true, or it may not be. North Korea is a long way away and we have more pressing issues closer to home that the purveyors of bullshit should be – but aren’t –  concentrating on.

For instance, 20,000 missing North Korean prisoners is equivalent to the conservative number of children under 18 who go permanently missing in this country every year… That is no bodies, or other evidence to suggest that they have been murdered.

Twenty Thousand children who have just vanished into thin air – year in year out – never to be seen again.

Course, since an estimated quarter of a million children go missing in the UK every year, that 20,000 is a very economical figure.

Makes you wonder why the government isn’t more concerned about this truly frightening statistic doesn’t it?

Makes you wonder why the MSM isn’t more concerned about this truly frightening statistic doesn’t it?

Makes you wonder why – bearing in mind we are talking about children – much more easily accessible, not to mention accurate figures aren’t available, doesn’t it?

I mean, what concerns you more? Twenty thousand missing North Korean prisoners, or twenty thousand missing British children?

What do you mean “shut up the X Factors on”?

 

 

20,000 North Koreans held in huge prison camp have simply ‘disappeared’, claim human rights group

  • Thousands of prisoners are missing after the closure of brutal Camp 22
  • New report claims many either died of starvation or disease last year
  • Few who are sent to North Korea’s labour camps ever live to tell the tale
  • A human rights group has now called for an urgent inquiry into the matter

More than 20,000 inmates of North Korea’s notorious Camp No 22 are feared to have perished during the regime’s recent closure of brutal facility.

The Committee for Human Rights in North Korea (HRNK) claims the prisoners – most of whom have never committed a crime – may have been allowed to die of disease or starvation in the run-up to the camp’s closure last year.

The organisation’s latest report, North Korea’s Hidden Gulag: Interpreting Reports of Changes in the Prison Camps, says the prison population shrank dramatically in the months leading up to December.

According to a report on the Telegraph’s website, defectors of the regime revealed about 8,000 of the 30,000 prisoners may have been transferred to other camps, leaving 22,000 unaccounted for.

The prisoners who survived are believed to have moved to Camp 25 near Chongjin City or to North Hamgyeong Province’s Camp 16, about which virtually nothing is known.

The closure came as North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un consolidated his grip on power following the death of his father in 2011, Kim Jong-Ill.

Now the HRNK has called for an inquiry into their fate.

More…

 

The report stated: ‘North Korea’s 2009 currency devaluation (whereby camp authorities were reportedly unable to purchase food in markets to supplement the crops grown in the camps), combined with bad harvests, resulted in the death of large numbers of prisoners after 2010,’ the report states.

‘If even remotely accurate, this is an atrocity requiring much closer investigation.’

While the report covers all of North Korea’s gulags, it focuses a large part of its attention on the situation in Camp 22.

HRNK spoke to defectors, including former guards, and occasional camp survivors to compile the report. It also used satellite images.

Camp 22 is believed to sprawl across 770 square miles, making it larger than London.

HRNK estimates even after the closures of two camps, about 130,000 people are still being held in labour colonies across the country.

The report stated: ‘Through this vast system of unlawful imprisonment, the North Korean regime isolates, banishes, punishes and executes those suspected of being disloyal to the regime.

‘They are deemed “wrong-thinkers”, “wrong-doers”, or those who have acquired “wrong-knowledge” or have engaged in “wrong-associations”.’

The report added: ‘North Korea denies access to the camps to outsiders, whether human rights investigators, scholars, or international media and severely restricts the circulation of information across its borders.’

Few prisoners ever make it out to tell the tale. Those who have paint a bleak picture of life on the inside.

Inmates can be imprisoned for life along with three generations of their families. They are forced to survive by eating frogs, rats and picking corn kernels out of animal waste.

Human rights activists estimate 40 per cent of inmates die of malnutrition, while others succumb to disease.

They face abuse by guards, torture, sexual violence and can even be worked to death. Those caught attempting to escape are executed.

Roberta Cohen, co-chairman of HRNK, called for the International Red Cross to be granted access to the camps as soon as possible.

She said: ‘An accounting of the fate and whereabouts of all of North Korea’s political prisoners, including those missing and those who have died in detention, should be of highest priority to the UN commission of inquiry and the entire international community.’
