NGO Actions in North Korea

SputnkNews.com published an article that reads in part as follows:

MOSCOW (Sputnik), Tommy Yang – Efforts from US-based non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to smuggle USB flash drives with information banned by Pyongyang into North Korea are unlikely to have expected effects of changing mindsets of the North Korean public, experts told Sputnik.

NGOs, such as the New York-based Human Rights Foundation (HRF), stepped up their efforts to bring flash drives filled with information that could influence the opinions of ordinary people into North Korea in 2017, amid growing tension on the Korean Peninsula after rapid advance in Pyongyang’s nuclear arms program.

According to Alex Gladstein, HRF’s chief strategy officer, up to 10,000 such flash drives were successfully smuggled into North Korea this year, which was described as a ‘third way’ to resolve the nuclear crisis on the Korean Peninsula by inspiring changes inside the country, UK newspaper The Telegraph reported last week.”
