The effects of the nuclear power have been felt to date and have attracted many human rights activist to fight for the affected victims. Yeonmi Park is 21 years she has dedicated her life to fighting for these victims. Park has faced several threats trying to silent her, but she always comes out as the winner. In 2015, a video was posted in one of the websites that the government owns trying to denounce this charismatic defector. She has been into several accusations from different organizations about her exaggerations and lies. The death threats are a normal thing to this young soul.
To help reduce the assassination cases, the investors have set up companies that try to compromise witnesses and defectors. These threats and smears led to the UN report that documented crimes against the humanity in North Korea. The report recommended that these crimes be taken to the Criminal Court that deals with international cases. The United Nations findings were from the testimonies of over 300 defectors. It was clear that the regime operated under cruelty that included mass detention in the forced labor camps. Park did not give her testimony despite her been a victim, she turned to the YouTube and gave a very emotional speech during her visit to Dublin on youngvoicesadvocates. She gave the heartbreaking story about the suffering the North Korea people go through and the harsh punishments the lawbreakers have to face.
In her speech, she pointed out how she saw her family friend been executed in public due to a minor trespass and her mother raped in her presence. After the death of her father, Yeon-mi could not shed tears or mourn for fear she will be taken back to North Korea. Her mother successfully escaped with her into Mongolia through the Gobi desert. Her Dublin speech turned her audience into tears, as it was a picture of the oppressed people in this part of the world. The media wanted her for interviews to let the world know about the suffering. She later published a book to air these sufferings.
The information from the book lacked some details concerning the dates and places. Park was not willing to share her secrets about the escape because it brought her bad memories. Her career required her to give full details about her past. As a human rights activist, she talked about her escape, all the suffering she went through, and the way the authority treated them. She apologized for the discrepancies in the previous book. She has stood up as a witness of the cruelty of the society during her childhood. The doctors argue that confusing the periods and scrambling details is a sign of the survivor of the trauma is telling the truth.
The author of the book has received threats about writing the final copy that has no discrepancies. Production of the North Korean video was the worst blow she received. Her family was to denounce her in front of a camera. Her family praised her instead as an ambitious kid. Her family seemed so vulnerable on the screen, but she did not stop talking about freedom.
