 Escaping North Korea - to slavery in China

Escaping North Korea - to slavery in China

Young North Korean women sold as brides to Chinese farmers and left statusless for fear of returning home

80% of women are sold as brides

North Koreans have increasingly been crossing into the northern border cities of China, with women outnumbering men.

"Women represent about 70% of some 200,000 North Koreans who fled from North Korea into China in the past few years," Kim Tae-jin, a North Korean defector who leads a non-government organization to protect the human rights of fellow North Koreans tells Inter Press Service.

North Korean men are less tempted to cross the border because, with little local connections in China, they are easily tipped off for arrest by security guards and subsequently sent back to North Korea, Kim explains. "Besides, North Korean men could hardly compete with the Chinese for the few jobs available."

In contrast, young North Korean women are sold as brides to Chinese farmers in northern border villages, while older ones take menial jobs working in restaurants or karaoke rooms. "We estimate about 80% of North Korean women who fled the North are sold as brides to Chinese men," Kim says.

Oh man, this just breaks my heart. We must keep praying.


I also know that the Chinese guards on the border get paid by the N Korean government if they catch N Koreans crossing the boarder to escape.
