I’ve seen this petition today:
150,000 to 200,000 people are believed to be imprisoned in government-run concentration camps in North Korea. The terrible conditions of these camps–meager food rations, infanticide, and unethical chemical experiments–are unacceptable. Most of the imprisoned die by age 50 (if not sooner) due to the awful working and living conditions.
It is all too easy to ignore the reality that people are suffering, especially when the situation seems hopeless and compassion is just too painful. However, as the great Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel said, “There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.”
