Talk by someone who escaped from the hermit state of North Korea
This Thursday 16th March Jihyun Park who managed to escape the closed country of North Korea will be giving a talk at the Five Rivers Leisure Centre, Hulse Road starting at 7:30 pm. Ji has led an incredible life having managed to escape the prison state of North Korea to China. In China she was trafficked and entered into a forced marriage. She worked more or less as a slave in China and was subsequently arrested and returned to North Korea where she was sent to a labour camp. She escaped again and now lives near Manchester.
North Korea is seldom out of the news these days with missile launches into the Sea of Japan and the murder of Kim Jong-un’s half brother in Malaysia. But the human rights situation in that country is dire and people live in situations of great adversity.
The event is free and there is a departing collection to help with our expenses.
