North Korea: Continuing to Imprison and Torture Its Citizens

I came accross the following link today from The Telegraph, showing satellite images of Camp No. 25 in North Korea. It shows significant growth in the camp. Buildings are being erected to attempt to handle the growing population of political prisoners that are being sent to the camp. There are many camps like this one in North Korea. Prisoners are routinely starved, raped, tortured and beaten and in a lot of cases, murdered in these camps. They are modern day concentration camps. And the world, for the most part, continues to ignore it. The regime continues to do nuke tests and the world ignores it. North Korea is a huge threat to the world, but the government is an even bigger threat to its own people, who are forced to put on a facade of worshipping their leader and acting as robots. Its either that, or be sent to prison camps. They have an almost unbreakable shield as far as media and communication with the outside world goes. Its people have no idea what is going on in our world. The state run media in that country do not let their people know anything contrary to the benefit of the regime. And the fact that there is proof that they are expanding their gulags, tells us all that North Korea is stepping up the oppression and imprisonment of its people. And it will only get worse as time goes by if the International community does not step up, as a whole, against the regime.
