    The status of Human rights for women in North Korea's Chongori concentration camp is shocking. Through a report titled "Help me! - Chongori concentration camp in North Korea : a place where there have been anti-human crimes", We will get a chance to know serious conditions in Chongori concentration camp in North Korea. 80% people of those who defected from North Korea was repatriated to Chongori concentration camp and that place has been notorious for its treatment to inmates with harsh abuse. Acocording to that report, people inside the camp eat very little amount of food and all the inmates have to do harsh works such as logging, mining, and farming. And if they don't meet the quota, they can't sleep. Human rights for women is more shocking. Guard in that concentration camp forcibly abort a child and then make the womne infertile by burning their womb. And ****** harassment and torture is widely happening. We can't expect North Korean government to at least guarantee the right to lead a life as a human as well as freedom of ideology. North Korea's propaganda that it is a wonderful country and got a first rank in happiness index is totally unacceptable.

    All human rights in North Korea are regularly violated by the government.
    South Koreans were subjected to corrupt dictatorships for decades following their "liberation." in 1953.

    There would be no North Korea and South Korea today if the USAMGIK (US Army Military Government in Korea) had not abolished the People's Republic of Korea in 1945.

    "The People's Republic of Korea (PRK) was a short-lived provisional government that was organized with the aim to take over control of Korea shortly after the Surrender of the Empire of Japan at the end of World War II.

    "It operated as the government in late August and early September 1945 until the United States Army Military Government in Korea was established by the United States of America. After that it operated unofficially, and in opposition to the United States Military Government, until it was forcibly dissolved in January 1946..."

    "The program of the PRK was presented in its September 14 twenty-seven point program.

    "The program included: 'the confiscation without compensation of lands held by the Japanese and collaborators; free distribution of that land to the peasants; rent limits on the nonredistributed land; nationalization of such major industries as mining, transportation, banking, and communication; state supervision of small and mid-sized companies; …guaranteed basic human rights and freedoms, including those of speech, press, assembly, and faith; universal suffrage to adults over the age of eighteen; equality for women; labor law reforms including an eight-hour day, a minimum wage, and prohibition of child labor; and 'establishment of close relations with the United States, USSR, England, and China, and positive opposition to any foreign influences interfering with the domestic affairs of the state.'"

    Any criticisms of North Korea today, and there are many valid ones, have to be framed through the lens of NSC-68 at the end of WWII:

    "President Harry S. Truman, even after the Soviets became a nuclear power, sought to curb military spending.

    "However, he did not reject the recommendations of NSC-68 out of hand, instead returning it to circulation and asking for an estimate of the costs involved. In the ensuing two months, little progress was made on the report.

    "By June, Nitze had practically given up on it. But on June 25, 1950, North Korean forces crossed the 38th parallel north.[8] With the Korean War begun, NSC-68 took on new importance. As Acheson later remarked: 'Korea... created the stimulus which made action.'"
