CPJ calls for North Korea to free Lee, Ling

In response to reports that North Korea would formally indict U.S. journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee, who were arrested on the border with China more than a month ago, we issued the following statement...
"We fear that these two journalists could become pawns for North Korea in a larger political game being played out with South Korea, China and the United States," said Bob Dietz, CPJ's Asia program coordinator. "Negotiations for their release must not be tied to issues such as nuclear weapons, missile testing, food aid, and general security on the Korean peninsula. We call upon the North Korean authorities to free them immediately," Dietz said.

In my opinion a solution for Laura and Euna would be for one of you brave souls to continue their work and research the connection between Slave and migrant labour from North Korea and retail corporations in the US (WALMART? SAM's club? plenty of targets folks) and vigorously publicize it until the Chinese lose money.

This will be dangerous work for you I promise but well worth it.

Vigorously publish the routine use of torture in both countries. Stop the BS about China "rising" and make them look like the facist pigs with no ideology and morals that they truly are.

Then maybe China will pressure "Dear Leader" into doing something more proactive than torturing those two poor souls in hell.
