In the growing number of political prison camps, prisoners face routine torture and execution, while outside of the camps the population continues to experience severe oppression, chronic food shortages and power failures.
Across the Western World, news about North Korea is dominated by its nuclear weapons programme and the triviality of the cult leadership of Kim Jong-Un. Far too little attention is given to the terrible human rights abuses of the North Korean Government and conditions in its political prison camps, which are officially denied to exist by the regime.
North Korea Campaign UK is a new, UK-based grassroots organisation, committed to raising awareness of human rights abuses, supporting the movement for change, and working with all who share our vision for a better future for the people of North Korea.
Over the coming months, we will be launching a range of campaigns to raise these crimes against humanity up the political agenda.
