A North Korean man who defected from the regime in 2002 is now issuing a serious warning, saying that conflict on the peninsula is now “unavoidable” in an interview with the Mail Online.
Song Byeok worked as a propaganda artist before escaping and now produces dissident artwork, including paintings of Kim Jong-Un as Marilyn Monroe. He now lives in South Korea and says that it’s worth paying the price of a war to bring peace back to his home country. He called on America and other countries to “make a change so the North Korea people can be free,” referencing the numerous American warships off the coast.
Mr. Song said that the Internet has been a major player in causing unrest in the country, because a few citizens in North Korea are able to bypass official propaganda and get a glimpse into the lives of people living all around the world.
His description of life in North Korea before he managed to escape into China is terrifying:
For Mr Song, it was the experience of watching members of his family starve to death during the great famine in the 1990s that convinced him to defect.
He lost his mother and sister to the famine, while he was forced to make posters glorifying the ‘arduous struggle’, as it was called by then-ruler Kim Jong-il. During that time Mr Song also watched his father drown after the pair went across the Chinese border to forage for food and the older man fell into a river.
Mr Song said he alerted border guards, but they did nothing to help and instead handcuffed him and threw him into a labour camp.
There he was starved and beaten so badly that the index finger on his right hand had to be amputated.
When asked about his art, Mr. Song said that he aimed to “share his message with the world — that North Korean people want the same rights and freedoms enjoyed by others in the West.”
And now with Kim Jong-Un planning new missile tests, looking to find one that can hit the mainland of the United States, Mr. Song is calling on President Donald Trump to help out by taking out the North Korean government by force.
In John Hawkins’ new book, ‘101 Things All Young Adults Should Know’, he teaches in number 84 of the book that there is safety in numbers. Mr. Song is suggesting that if Kim Jong-Un were toppled, the people will refuse to fight for him and instead choose democracy. Check out more common sense that all young adults must know below:
