BALLOONS WITH DVDs SECRETLY LAUNCHED INTO NORTH KOREA BY ACTIVISTS

New Focus International on July 4, 2013, reported that North Korean human rights activist Lee Man-bok launched balloons into North Korea from Kimhwa in South Korea. Excerpts below:

The balloons containing DVDs were sent to float north with the southwestern wind, according to Mr Lee.

The DVDs show the strength of South Korea’s military, which will persuade the North Korean recipients of the fact that the DPRK state has been lying about its military superiority, Mr Lee explained.

The launch was conducted without prior announcement; an earlier publicized launch planned by North Korean activist Park Sang-hak, winner of the Vaclav Havel Prize for Creative Dissent, was thwarted by South Korean police at the scene.
