"The people of North Korea are not as submissive as they appear to be.
Unnoticed by the outside world, strong opposition to the regime of
dictator Kim Jong Il is beginning to appear.
In the bitter years of the mid-1990s, when the regime allowed up to
three million people to die from malnutrition and weakness,
demonstrations repeatedly flared up against the country's bizarre
ruler ... Slogans against the dictator ("Down with Kim Jong Il")
appeared on railroad cars, overpasses and factory walls. Flyers
condemning the dynasty's unbelievable ostentation were even posted
outside the Kumsusan Mausoleum in Pyongyang ... In a new,
soon-to-be-published book about North Korea, Jasper Becker, 48, a
British author and journalist living in Beijing, writes that
factories, military units, and even entire towns revolted against
the leadership in Pyongyang. ... For example, Becker obtained
details about the biggest labor demonstrations in North Korea's
history, which took place in 1998 in the industrial city of
Songrim. The protests began on a cold February morning after the
public execution of eight men, all managers at the Hwanghae Iron

workers and their families, they sold parts of the factory to
Even though many of Songrim's inhabitants were starving at the time,
the attempt to circumvent the defunct public supply system to obtain
food was considered sabotage and treason. ... A few hours later,

protest was short-lived. The next morning, tanks broke through the
factory gates and mowed down the demonstrators. According to
eyewitness reports, hundreds lost their lives."
