In recent months, ICC has been working to raise more awareness about the atrocities that occur in North Korea and what we can do to help people escape a regime known to be one of the worst persecutors of Christians in the world.
It is alarming to know that the North Korean regime is actively arresting and sometimes even executing its citizens for attempting to flee the nation. Even more alarming is that those who successfully cross into China (often the only viable option) must go into immediate hiding, as the Chinese government has been increasingly hunting down refugees and forcibly repatriating them back to North Korea, where inhumane treatment and even death awaits those deemed as traitors.
In order to bring global awareness to China’s cruel policy that violates its international treaty commitments, ICC is partnering with the North Korea Freedom Coalition for an International Protest to Save the North Korean Refugees on Thursday, September 22, which coincides with the USA’s 3rd annual Save North Korean Refugees Day. This protest will call Chinese embassies and consulates throughout the world to stop the repatriation of North Korean refugees.
