NAUH is carrying out a diverse array of campaigns as follows, to improve North Korean human rights.
On the fourth Saturday of every month, we run a North Korean Human Rights Street Campaign at Seoul Station Square. Every month, an average of 15 to 20 people is present. North Korean human rights training is provided to the participants of the campaign.
In order to provide a place to relieve dissimilarities and to better understand each other, we hold a cultural event called “North and South Salon,” where North and South Koreans attend. It’s a place where people who have different cultures but share universal values come together and communicate with each other.
Various talk concerts are held within schools, military units, religious groups, and local public corporations. In these events, North Korean defectors testify the human rights situation in North Korea based on their experiences. The participants can reflect on the value of human rights through the questions and answers session.
Jangmadang (Market) Reenactment
We hold events that reproduces North Korean Markets at the “goon”(prefecture) level with actual North Korean goods. It is an opportunity to directly understand the livelihoods of North Koreans by looking at household goods, school supplies, military uniforms, etc. used by North Koreans. Various institutions and organizations are asking us to conduct this reenactment.
