Activists fight North Korea with balloons, DVDs and leaflets

South Korea progpaganda balloons - 29 July 2010

Some send up plastic leaflets that weigh less than a feather and flutter down from the clouds with calls for democracy or blurry cartoons ridiculing North Korea’s ruler. Some send flash drives loaded with South Korean soap operas, or mini-documentaries about the vast wealth of Southern corporations, or crisp new US dollar bills. One occasionally sends his empty food wrappers, stained labels showing noodles slathered in meat sauce, so Northerners can see the good life they’d find in the South.

This sunset picture is beautiful on its own, but imagine if you hadn’t seen the sun in over four months.
