    Of the many prison camps in North Korea, the one in Hoeryong 22 political prison camp, located north-east of Hoeryong, Hamgyong province is the worst. 50,000 prisoners are contained and the age of youngest prisoner put to harsh work is 6.

    At the camp, prisoners are put to work until they die. Prisoners work 10 hours a day, but only 180g of rice is given per person. When prisoners make a tedious mistake, they are given severe punishment. Female prisoners are often sexually abused by the security guards. Recently it was reported that the Hoeryong 22 camp has closed down, but from recent satellite imagery by North Korean activist groups, the camp is still working.

    There are hundreds of these camps all over North Korea. And there's pretty much nothing anybody can do about it.

    N. Korea’s Threat to Tear Up Armistice Comes As S. Korea Supports U.N. Human Rights Probe
    March 6, 2013 – North Korea’s threat to abrogate the half-century-old armistice with South Korea is being viewed as a response to a new sanctions push at the U.N. and joint U.S.-South Korea military drills. But it also comes after a less-noticed but significant shift in Seoul’s international diplomacy.

    I have no good feelings about the North Korean regime , but we -- and America in particular--- are now beginning to pay the price for the heavy handed World Policeman stance .
    People do not respond well to being forced to do things or being bullied .
    Now the biters are on the point of being bitten and squealing like stuck pigs .

    I heard Camp 14 was the worst, I know that the survivor who wrote the book, "Eyes of the Tailess Animals" said that the guards kick the women into labor, when the child is born they snap the neck of the infant right before the mothers eyes, cut the cord and send her back out there to work. The Christians have it the worst, she saw them pouring red hot molten material down their throats in there - they were murdered left and right for nothing. It is the darkest place on earth - North Korea - meanwhile Dennis Rodman is partying down with the leader. Do people realise how sick that is? - Jeremiah NOTE*** The products made in North Korea have labels sown into them that read Made in China. This way China can sell it to USA & other nations for a profit. North Korea also mass produces for the Russians as well. Both nations never stopped doing business with North Korea and the American government knows it. The prisoner who survived NK prison told Congress herself as she was one who actually sewed Made in China Labels in.

    While America has defended human rights throughout the world helping others fight for their freedom and for democracy, other nations do this. Isn't it ironic that the Greatest offenders of human rights, North Korea, China, Russia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Guinea, Somalia, Burma.... are given a total pass by the world while America is condemned as having been "bad"??? Really??? What hypocrisy!

    If only people would use their heads! - Jeremiah

    So, you found a list and posted it without stopping to think about even one item on it, huh? You were in such a hurry to try and draw a moral equivalency between North Korea and the US that you just couldn't help yourself, huh?

    The utter insanity of anyone attempting to compare North Korea's Gulags with American Prison Club Meds is incredible. There is no comparison. The prisons in America are 5 star hotels compared to North Korean Gulags. Americans had better wake up. In Communist nations the people have to dig in the ground for worms to eat. A bowl of rice a day for NK prisoners is a lie. They get less than nothing and eat rats, bugs, dirt, anything they can find. There is a food shortage in NK, and the prisoners don't qualify for it. - Jeremiah
