NU KASA and LiNK Present: Hiding
While the world focuses on North Korea’s security issue, hundreds of thousands of North Koreans continue to be enslaved in prison camps today. Up to 300,000 have also escaped to China – seeking food, medicine, work, or freedom from political and religious oppression. Among the 300,000, 70 to 90 percent of North Korean women are trafficked and sold into the sex trade, and more and more refugees are fleeing to Southeast Asia to escape imprisonment upon repatriation by China.
Through LiNK's networks, these refugees can be helped and given new lives. "Hiding" is a film about a group of North Korean refugees hiding in China today, and exposes their struggles to survive.
Join NU KASA and LiNK (Liberty in North Korea) for a free movie screening and discussion to help spread awareness about this issue; an issue that affects our entire global community. The "Hiding tour" will not only raise awareness about the plight of North Korean refugees but it will also take part in raising the funds necessary to help rescue more North Korean refugees currently in hiding.
