The Last Outposts of Slavery of the Past XX Century 
Date : November 8, 2011
The detainees at the North Korean political penal-labor colonies and the South Korean POWs and civilian abductees are the last slaves of the 20th century who continue to be deprived of even the minimum of human rights. They are the victims of the ideological struggle of the communists, and strident antagonistic inter-Korean relations. Yet, even though the Cold War has already been resolved in many ways, these victims of history still need to be saved.   Source: Citizens' Alliance for North Korean Human Rights

The Crumbling Sate of Healtchare in North Korea 
Date : November 8, 2011
Amnesty International has documented how widespread and chronic malnutrition, which suppresses people’s immune system, has triggered epidemics and mass outbreaks of illnesses related to poor diet. Interviews with North Koreans depict a country that professes to have a universal (free) health care system but in reality struggles to provide even the most basic service to the population. For this report, between November 2009 and June 2010, AI interviewed more than 40 North Koreans, as well as organizations and health professionals who work with North Koreans.   Source: Amnesty International
