More "Dirty Work" for North Koreans

North Koreans are being forced to make fertilizer for the regime, according to an article by The Chosun Ilbo.
 
North Korea is in dire need of fertilizer to grow its crops, but it has virtually no chemical fertilizer of its own. Countries that have donated fertilizer in the past have started to turn a cold shoulder to the regime. So the government has ordered citizens to make fertilizer using human excrement and straw. But the excrement is surprisingly hard to come by, and when so many have so little, even human feces is a prized commodity.
