북한자유주간 소개

‘북한자유주간’은 북한주민의 자유와 인권증진을 위한 국내외 NGO단체들의 공동 활동주간이며 매해 4월 마지막 주를 활동 시기로 정함.

2004년 4월 미국의 북한인권법 통과를 촉구하는 한, 미, 일 북한인권운동가들의 워싱턴 집회가 발단이며 서울과 워싱턴을 오가며 현재까지 진행되고 있음.

북한자유주간 내 활동은 북한주민들의 열악한 인권상황을 한국과 국제사회에 알리고 대책을 촉구하는데 초점이 맞추어져 있으며 원하는 사람은 누구나 참가할 수 있음.

올해로 17회째를 맞고 있는 북한자유주간의 명예 대회장은 ‘북한자유연합’의 슈잔 숄티 이며 조직위는 당해 행사에 참여하는 탈북자 및 시민단체 대표자가 공동으로 맡고 있음.

The corona virus cannot stop North Korea Freedom Week!

Although we are unable to send delegations to Seoul for the 17th Annual North Korea Freedom Week which will take place April 26-May 2, 2020, in South Korea, I am pleased to share with you that sessions will be posted on YouTube hosted by North Korean defector leaders each day discussing important topics AND everyone around the world is invited to watch online but also join with us in solidarity for a day of prayer and fasting for the people of North Korea on April 28th. The sessions are generally scheduled for 9 am KST (Korean Standard Time)– so folks in the USA would watch the evening before and sessions will be in Korean, of course.

For the April 28th day of prayer and fasting, we posted the photos and short bios of 9 key people in authority in the DPRK for special prayers in these times of uncertainty. Our NKFW theme is The Restoration of North Korea that the land once known as the Oriental Jerusalem would be freed from the demonic oppression under which its people suffer and be restored to God, so that North Koreans can live with freedom, human rights and dignity. Hence, we hope that folks around the world would join us in unity to pray for the freedom of North Korea and specifically pray for a change of heart in these 9 key leaders especially on the historic day of April 28th.
