"We Will Take Practical Measures to Physically Eliminate This Human Scum".- Ministry of People's Secutiry
Seoul, June 27.─ The North Korean government has declared their intention to kill a delegation from the Human Rights Foundation (HRF) this Saturday during a South Korea-based balloon launch aimed at distributing information and equipment into North Korea.
HRF, in cooperation with the civil society organization Fighters for Free North Korea, intends to travel to the border with North Korea and launch 5,000 helium balloons each containing a small package that includes USB drives, a transistor radio, chocolates, CDs and leaflets denouncing the North Korean dictatorship and offering an alternative view of life beyond the border.
"The Kim dictatorship perfectly illustrates their inhumanity and weakness by reacting to a non-violent educational effort aimed at breaking the monopoly of information over their people by threatening retaliation with deadly force. We plan to send accurate information and in return they menace with 'slitting our throats,'" said HRF president Thor Halvorssen who is in Seoul accompanying Park Sang Hak, a defector from North Korea whose organization has spent the last ten years providing his people with opinions that differ from the regime's official propaganda machinery.
