On November 25, Justice for North Korea will begin its Zakar Korea campaign.
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The United Nations proclaimed this historic document in remembrance of human rights violations, in prevention of warfare and crimes against humanity, and above all to promote universal peace.
In light of the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, we hope to unite those who are concerned by the suffering and abuses in North Korea through the three-week Zakar Korea campaign.
The Zakar Korea campaign aims to break the silence and actively raise awareness on the plight of the North Korean people. Through various meaningful methods, the campaign sheds light on the forgotten victims of persecution. With this mission in mind, we hope that Zakar Korea will unite organizations and groups from different fields towards the goal of achieving justice on the Korean Peninsula.
“Zakar” literally translates “to remember” in Hebrew, carrying a deeper meaning beyond simply recalling and memorizing a truth. “Zakar” encourages attentive contemplation and reflection of one’s surroundings in the face of truth, denoting an active, conscious effort.
