Escape from North Korea

Escape from North Korea

Salisbury Amnesty invite you to a talk with Jihyun Park on Thursday 16th March, 7.30pm in Activity Room 1, Five Rivers Health & Wellbeing Centre, Hulse Rd, Salisbury, SP1 3NR.

No charge, but donations to Amnesty International are welcome.

Jihyun Park is a North Korean refugee living in the UK. She first escaped North Korea with her brother in 1998. They travelled into China where they were preyed on by human traffickers that separated them and sold her into a forced marriage to a Chinese farmer for 5,000 yuan. She had a child who was deemed stateless by the Chinese government. In 2004 local villagers reported her to the authorities and she was repatriated to North Korea and endured horrific conditions in a labour camp. She developed gangrene and the guards threw her out of the prison as they believed she was close to death. A kind stranger nursed her and helped her to escape for the final time – find out what happened on 16th March and come and hear Jihyun’s extraordinary story.

Jihyune works for the European Alliance for Human Rights in North Korea(www.eahrnk.org) as North Korean Outreach and Project Officer.
