Yeonmi Park Strikes Out Against North Korea

Posted on by

There are many great evils in the world today but none seem to be able to hold a candle to the systematic, country wide oppressive that has been going on in North Korea. For several decades now North Korea has trended toward destabilization of the entire region with threats of global war, a failing economy, and a country full of oppressed citizens. Very rarely do you see people make it out of North Korea in order to speak out against the ills of their government, but they do make it. That is why the story of Yeonmi Park is so important. Yeonmi Park opened up about her new book and her terrifying journey out of North Korea, as reported by Reason.com.
If you were to ever lay your eyes on Yeonmi Park then the odds are good that you would believe her to be an intrinsically small and weak person. She has doll like eyes, porcelain skin, and the speech pattern that always requires a comment of, “Could you speak up just a little?” Yet for all of these soft and delicate features, Park is a hardened survivor of horrors that most people can’t even begin to comprehend.

Yeonmi and her mother had fled North Korea back in 2007 after the father of the family was thrown into a labor camp and charged with smuggling. By smuggling this meant that he was selling products to people outside of North Korea, desperate to make enough money to feed his family. Without their father in play Yeonmi and her mother were incapable of staying fed, much less staying safe. So they took up with a human trafficker from China and began their journey across the Yalu River and to what they assumed would be safety. This was not the case.

Instead Yeonmi and her mother were betrayed and sold into human trafficking. For the next couple of years the two would be forced to demean themselves at the most basic of level just to stay alive. Now Park is Public Enemy #1 of Pyongyang and she is one of the loudest voices in the world of human rights.
