19.07.2016 North Korean Speaker: "The Faceless Ones"

Developer: PSCORE IP ADRESS: *.15.115.7 Views: 77

  

We are glad to announce that our speech event held at Korea University last Tuesday was extremely popular, overcrowding the hall with people!

The audience got to hear a hurtful story of a North Korean defector, who could not stop the tears from falling when describing the situation in the North. It was truly heartbreaking and a moving realization of what it is like to live in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. 

We appreciate the strength of Ms. Shin to stand up and talk about her experiences and her will to share the painful memories. As she said it herself, “We have to speak out, so people can understand what the situation is really like in North Korea”. 
We also want to thank to the Korea University staff as well as professors Jan & Eric Youngstrom for the help in the making of this event. We could not have done it without your help! Also, a big THANK YOU to all the people who came to hear the story and for your heart-full donations!

We look forward to seeing you this Saturday at our Rock Out Event!
