Close Concentration Camps in North Korea

"Never Again!" is often said regarding the atrocities of the Holocaust during World War II and yet, the horrors of those times still live on TODAY.

In North Korea, 150,000 to 200,000 people are believed to be imprisoned in government-run concentration camps--called gulags--for criticizing the government or practicing Christianity. Not only are these "offenders" sent to the camps, but the next two generations of their family as well, in order to "root out the bad blood and seed of dissent."

The conditions of these labor camps are terrible: food rations are meager (many survive on rats), babies born in the detention facilities are stamped to death by guards, and unethical chemical experiments are conducted on the detainees. Most of the imprisoned die by age 50 (if not sooner) due to the awful working and living conditions.

China is the one country in the world with the closest ties to North Korea. Take action today and urge the Chinese government to wield their influence over North Korea to shut down these inhumane camps. Never again starts NOW!
Out of every country in the world, China has the closest ties to North Korea. As a critical ally and their biggest trading partner, China also has heavy influence over North Korea. Thus, I am writing to urge China to use its close connections with North Korea to stop the inhumane practices of the gulag concentration camps.

These camps, in which 150,000 to 200,000 are believed to be imprisoned, violate basic human rights standards. The terrible condition of these camps--the meager food rations, the infanticide, and unethical chemical experiments--are unacceptable and have led to the premature death of hundreds of thousands of people.

North Korea relies on China to provide food, fuel, and arms. If China were to condemn North Korea for these cruel practices, North Korea would be forced to listen to its oldest and truest ally.
