Tensions Re-elevated as UN Debates

first_imgNewsEconomy SHARE Following an extended period of military tension following the declaration of UN Resolution 2087 in late January, there are signs that North Korea is again deliberately ratcheting up domestic insecurity, lending weight to the claim that if the UN adopts a fresh resolution against Pyongyang, a state of “preparation for military mobilization” or some other heightened state of alert will be reintroduced.A North Hamkyung Province source explained today, “Workers sent back to their workplaces on or after the 14th have been given a lecture about how ‘when military exercises resume soon, field exercises will resume’, and orders stating that not only training for reserves but also for Worker and Pleasant Red Guards must go up a notch.” The content of the lecture, the source added, was that “the U.S. imperialists and their followers are rushing to prepare sanctions measures against us in the UN, so we must also prepare more quickly to fight with them.” According to the source, the situation is similar to that at the end of last month, when the military readiness posture was raised and people were warned that martial law was likely to be declared. “Orders have come down from the provincial Party telling every household to donate 5kg of corn to support the military,” the source said. “Even reserves and Worker and Peasant Red Guards, meaning not even the regular military, have plans to produce metal dog tags and give them out.”In addition, the National Defense Commission has allegedly ordered all public agencies and enterprises to construct arms stores on-site in order to facilitate the quicker distribution of weaponry in an emergency.“They’ve ordered people to prepare emergency food stores and every people’s unit is organizing nighttime patrols, so it looks like they will have emergency drills and declare a quasi-state of war at some point soon,” the source concluded.

Building trust with North Korean radio audience essential to incite democratic…

first_img“The resistancefighting style should definitely depend on the regime at hand. Alldictatorships eventually come to an end. Hitler and Saddam Hussein are but twoexamples. Kim Jong Un will someday meet a similar fate. Bypresenting vivid reports of inside information, it’s possible to gain faith andkick off democratization in North Korea.” The former East German democracy advocatesadvised that producing and broadcasting diverse news about what is going on inNorth Korea is the most effective way to develop trust and begin the process ofdemocratization. Through objectively researched and presented reports, trustcan be developed. After trust is developed, it will be possible to change thesocial and political consciousness of North Koreans.   The experts specifically advised theimportance of North Korean defectors, who have experience in both North andSouth Korea and can thus naturally serve as bridges between the two societies.Reports produced by defectors can form momentum leading to change in the North.“The most effectivemethod will be to have the defectors recording the radio broadcasts that yousend into the North. If you can get stories about the North and turn them intonews pieces that you send back in, it will be much easier to develop listenerconfidence in the broadcast’s credibility,” Mr. Schefke said. “Because it is so difficultto distribute leaflets or use cell phones to communicate, radio broadcastsremain the best way to transmit information. It will be helpful todiscuss how defectors are doing with their new lives in South Korea. It willalso be important to use their networks when they arrive. These defectors areserving in an extremely important role. I hope that they seize upon each andevery opportunity to be a lifeline of information for those still in theNorth.”  News AvatarDaily NKQuestions or comments about this article? Contact us at [email protected] Mr. Jahn said, “The East German authoritiestried in vain to block the trickle down effect of Western media. Countless EastGerman young people engaged and helped produce these media despite the dangers.The proof of the value of this media is in the historical evidence.” Mr. Schefke also weighed in, noting, “We didn’t dwell on thedangerous aspect of our task. We devoted all our energy and worries intosolving the problem of getting outside information into the country. We thoughtabout disseminating leaflets from the West, about how to get Western radio broadcastsinto the homes of East Germans.”  SHARE News News In this matter, footage and audio tape ofthe democracy movement in East Germany was sent to the West. Programs wereproduced in West Germany and broadcast for East Germans to see and hear on TVand radio. East German residents learned about things that the authorities hadbeen concealing from them through the broadcasts. The regime’s ability to liewith impunity was greatly reduced thereafter. The situation is reminiscent ofthe radio broadcasts that are sent to contemporary North Korea. This kind of media gave a boost in braveryand confidence to the East German residents, which eventually culminated in the1989 “Peaceful Revolution,” and served as the driving force of Germanre-unification.   On this topic, Mr. Jahn said, “The TVprograms were responsible for giving the people the bravery they needed to getout on the streets and demonstrate.  It might be hard for youngsters inGermany to understand or sympathize with at the moment, but this media wasextremely helpful in ushering in the period of peace by contributing to Germanunification.”  *This article has been brought to youthanks to support from the Korea Press Foundation.

Reporter Schefke was tasked with directlyfilming the country’s latest developments, but he did not have the properequipment and was constantly forced to go through trial and error to accomplishhis tasks. It was especially important for him toavoid the crackdowns and censorship of the government. Because the East GermanSecret Police (or Stasi) had full knowledge that people like Siegbert Schefkewere undertaking ‘seditious’ activities, he operated under constant threat oftorture or prolonged imprisonment. According to East German criminal law atthe time, Mr. Schefke’s crimes were punishable by up to 12 years ofimprisonment. Many people were caught by the Stasi Police and thrown in jailfor similar offenses. Despite the constant repression and threat of punishment, these democracy advocates did not let their hope and faith in democratic unification die away.  A camera and recorder used by democracy advocates to record scenes at the Berlin Palace of Tears (Tränenpalast), where East Germans said goodbye to visitors who were returning to the West.

In order to open the country up, it is necessary towork side by side with the North Korean people. Of course, the broadcasts willhelp to expose and rupture cracks in the regime, but it will also be necessaryto look for opportunities to make bigger holes in the regime’s grasp on power.”  Building trust with North Korean radio audience essential to incite democratic changes News A Stasi Prison in Dresden.

Image: Daily NK “Duringthe time of division, East German radio and TV featured rosy depictions of lifein the communist state that was quite different from the normal experience ofordinary residents. To fight back against the propaganda lies of the tightlycontrolled state media, we looked for ways to discover the truth.” Through an acquaintance, I received arequest to record the progress of the anti-regime movement in East Germany. I said, of course I can. That’s how we started recording video and audiofor West German broadcasters. We made content that showed what life was reallylike in East Germany.” This is the true story of Siegbert Schefke,a reporter from Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk (Central German Broadcasting, MDR) ,who was a democracy movement protester in East Germany in the era beforeunification. At the time, Siegbert Schefke worked with Head of Stasi RecordsAgency Roland Jahn to fight against the autocratic East German authorities. Mr. Schefke said, “I was not personally closewith Mr. Jahn. We used a cipher to communicate to one another in secret. Wetalked every day at a fixed time. That was the extent of our affiliation. Itwas a dangerous undertaking, but I felt it was my duty. We sent video footageto West Germany which showed the real state of our country. Then the WestGermans made TV programs from the footage and beamed the television signal overto East Germany so our countrymen could see.”  North Korea Market Price Update: June 8, 2021 (Rice and USD Exchange Rate Only)last_img read more

Call for safety regulations after fatal tractor crash

Questions about her articles can be directed to [email protected] center_img A tractor being delivered as a gift from Kim Jong Un was recently involved in a deadly accident in Ryanggang Province, resulting in the deaths of the driver and all passengers. “In early December last year, Kim Jong Un allocated tractors to residents of the Samsu and Gapsan regions of Ryanggang, but there was an accident as one was in the process of being delivered to the area. The tractor apparently fell off a cliff, killing the driver and all others on board,” a source in the region told Daily NK on January 3. Explaining the reasons for the accident, the source said that it occurred at night and that season-appropriate tire chains “did not come pre-installed as part of the gift.”Local cadres have reportedly been asking themselves who is to blame for the incident, with some worried that it may turn into a ‘political incident’ if it is perceived that Kim Jong Un failed to deliver the tractor in a proper manner.The source said that “officials first organized the funeral for the dead before looking into who was to blame. Funeral responsibilities were taken on by local cooperative farm management and county party offices.”In general, officials are hoping to avoid accusations of negligence or lax regulations in the fallout of the event. News of safety accidents have been spreading like wildfire throughout Ryanggang recently, but officials have not yet responded with a plan or policy. The source relayed one such story of a wreck occurring just days before the tractor accident, where “16 people died when a lorry carrying traders hustling to complete their end-of-year business crashed due to slippery road conditions.” He added that “the authorities still did not hint at any new safety regulations.”Sources across the country report that road accidents occur at a dizzying pace in winter months in the mountainous regions, especially on the narrow roads of Ryanggang Province. The frequency is so high that such accidents are a common topic of conversation among residents. “The scenes of the accidents are merely repaired each time, but year after year, people continue to die in traffic accidents on these narrow roads, steep slopes, and sharp curves. Drivers are allowed to go on using just a single headlight, for instance, reducing visibility and leading to crashes,” a separate source in Ryanggang Province said.The North Korean authorities held a massive event in Kim Il Sung Square in Pyongyang on December 7 promoting their success in developing various tractor and lorry models, lining them up for propaganda display. Around 300 vehicles were on display, including the “Chollima-804” and “Chungsong-122” tractors and the “Seungni” flatbed lorry.
