The Last Outposts of Slavery of the Past XX Century 
Date : November 8, 2011
The detainees at the North Korean political penal-labor colonies and the South Korean POWs and civilian abductees are the last slaves of the 20th century who continue to be deprived of even the minimum of human rights. They are the victims of the ideological struggle of the communists, and strident antagonistic inter-Korean relations. Yet, even though the Cold War has already been resolved in many ways, these victims of history still need to be saved.   Source: Citizens' Alliance for North Korean Human Rights
