Every year, thousands of North Koreans flee to China in search of a better life. Some try to leave permanently as they seek freedom or flee religious persecution, and others cross the border in search of jobs or food so they can return and support their starving families in North Korea. However, reaching China does not mean freedom for refugees, since China has an agreement with North Korea to forcibly repatriate all refugees. Since leaving North Korea is a capital offense, China’s policy essentially sends refugees to their death. Please sign our petition and ask the Chinese government to end its policy of forcibly repatriating North Korean refugees.
