#SaveMyFriend – Help North Korean Refugees
North Korea is quite literally one of the darkest countries in our world. Although it refers to itself as the “Democratic People’s Republic of Korea”, it’s anything but democratic. It is a single party state under the dictatorship of Kim Jong-un. It is a country that often deprives its citizens of basic human rights and continues to keep them disconnected from the rest of the world.
In February 2012, 30 North Korean refugees were arrested in China after escaping from North Korea. The Chinese government plans to forcibly send them back to North Korea shortly. History shows that refugees that are caught and returned often face harsh punishment or death.
I’m inviting you to possible change the fate of these 30 refugees that represent millions in bondage in North Korea. Here’s how you can help:
- Take 30 seconds to sign & share our petition to Chinese authorities at www.savemyfriend.org
- Tweet: Please #SaveMyFriend — sign savemyfriend.org
- Share this blog post or the website on other social media platforms like Facebook, Google+, Tumblr, etc.
- For those in LA, join the protest tomorrow March 2nd at the Chinese Consulate – facebook.com/events/193073814131190/
