Economic Freedom and Empowerment for Defecting North Korean Women

North Korean women worked together to grind soybeans with millstone, boiling and then pressing them into a wooden frame. This hands-on learning experience to make tofu in the rural South Korean village of Cheongjung Sinheung was just one stop on their tour of food and drink industries for the group of women that defected from the North.

In addition to Cheongjung Sinheung Village, the women visited a traditional liquor manufacturing plant and the GTI International Trade and Investment Expo held in Donghae. The tour was part of the Global Peace Foundation (GPF) ongoing program North Korean Defectors Entrepreneur Training ENM (Educating + Networking + Mentoring).

As North Korean defector women are often breadwinners of their families, the stakes for finding jobs and starting businesses are high. With their newfound freedom in the South, these women may explore possibilities for economic development that they never dreamed of in the North. Yet, navigating through the unfamiliar and competitive job market in the South is a daunting task. GPF’s training program empowers these women by providing skills training, networking opportunities, mentoring, and industry exploration. Within a supportive community of mentors and other North Korean defectors, these women gain confidence in their job search or in starting their own businesses. They find renewed hope for shaping their own destinies for the better.

On this industry tour, the women learned about Guksundang’s Hoengseong (Industrial Complex) Plant’s 30-year manufacturing history and observed the production lines. They also learned about the process of promoting and selling products and signing contracts at the GTI International Trade and Investment Fair, an event where businesses from over 50 countries participated.

After the tour, Professor Heung-ryul Pyeon of Seojeong University gave a presentation at the Global Research Institute in Taebaek City. “The recent baby boomers of the 1960s are jumping into small-scale businesses, and 70 percent of them close within five years. For North Korean defectors to succeed in starting their businesses, they need to understand the culture of South Korean society and realize their strengths well.” He shared success stories of KFC founder Cornell Harland and Hyundai Group Chairman Ju-young Chung to illustrate his main point. “The most important thing, even more than creating items and management capabilities, is the indomitable spirit.”

Although economic empowerment for North Korean defector women is an important endeavor, GPF is simultaneously working to address the larger issue at hand, that is the division of the Korean peninsula.

Kim Mi-hwa, president of the Women’s Division for GPF Korea, also gave a presentation and shared her hopes for reunification, “South and North Korea have virtually lost their national identity for 70 years after the division… We need to recognize that through unification, the opportunity has come for our people to be leaders in the 21st century. We should work toward unification with one common vision between the two Koreas.”

She encouraged participants to be a part of the One Korea Global Campaign, a grassroots movement to bring awareness and draw support for the reunification of the two Koreas. As the 100th anniversary of the 1919 March First Korean Independence Movement draws near, Ms. Kim reminded them of the once unifying vision of the Korean people, the hope of a free, independent, and unified nation that upholds human rights and freedoms.

At the conclusion of the tour, one participant shared her experience saying, “I was able to gain inspiration and confidence in starting a new business by looking at the creative products. Through making tofu on our last part of the tour, I was able to discover the value of traditional Korean cuisine, and I am thinking to start a business.” She also commented on Ms. Kim’s presentation, “Hopefully, we reunify as soon as possible, and North Koreans will get a proper historical view. Unification is the only way to correct the distorted history education we receive in the North.”

The Global Peace Foundation is a founding member of Action for Korea United, a coalition of 900 civic society organizations in Korea that is spearheading the Korean-led efforts of the One Korea Global Campaign.  For more information on the campaign and the March 1 Korean Independence Movement 100 year commemorations visit: 1dream1korea.com

COUP-IN-PROGRESS: White Collar Mafiosos Fauci, Pelosi, Cuomo & Cuomo Conspire to Topple Trump

Published

Let’s put THE GREAT SCAMDEMIC aside for a moment.

And let’s jump ahead to Election Day — November 3, 2020.

Three things are certain based on Deep State’s no-holds-barred MO.

First, the DEMs will steal the Senate just like they stole the House during the 2018 midterms.

Second, the DEMs will increase their majority in the House with even more election fraud and theft.

Third, the DEMs will either politically incapacitate Trump between now and Nov. 3…
or, they will outright steal the POTUS election now that the electoral process has been thrown into chaos and confusion…
or, they will let Trump win so that they can impeach and convict him in 2021 with their solid majorities.

Now let’s take a close look at THE GREAT SCAMDEMIC, and especially how it will be used to manipulate the 2020 election outcome.

This thing — THE GREAT SCAMDEMIC — goes way beyond the Democrats and Deep State.  It goes way beyond CROWNgate and Pedogate.  It goes way beyond the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers. It even goes beyond the Cahilla and the Khazarian Mafia … as well as the Black Nobility and the International Banking Cartel & Crime Syndicate.

THE GREAT SCAMDEMIC is so HUGE and has so many objectives that you know it’s the end … the final end … … … as in the “End-times” !

But that’s not the point here.

What happens between now and Election Day will determine the fate of the American Republic.  The future of the American people hangs in the balance with the 2020 outcome like no other election in U.S. history.

The election outcome (and process) will also dictate the inevitable consequences for the Democrat Party, as well the destiny of Deep State.  The Patriot Movement also stands to gain or lose a LOT!

This is why TPTB have strategically positioned so many Deep State Democrats all over the place.

We’re talking about white-collar mafiosos like Fauci, Pelosi, Cuomo & Cuomo.

The liberal power elite have installed a top hitman in every position that counts.

It’s like JFK driving through Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963 surrounded by the 8 C.I.A. sniper nests (yes, there really were at least eight sniper’s nests).[1]

FALSE FLAG ALERT: Obama Foundation tweeted about George Floyd on May 17th, a week before his supposed murder – UPDATE

greenbay

Published

(Natural News) We have now confirmed that the Obama Foundation was tweeting about George Floyd on May 17th, more than a week before the day Floyd was reportedly killed by police in an act of violence that sparked the worldwide riots we’re all witnessing.

George Floyd was killed on May 25th. So what was the Obama Foundation doing tweeting about Floyd on May 17th, when nobody knew who he was?

UPDATE: Some people are saying that Twitter retroactively alters images from the history of your timeline when the source URL changes its image. However, what investigators have already confirmed is that the Twitter URL validator was used by the Obama Foundation to validate this image on May 17th, in advance of releasing it publicly. Thus, the image was VALIDATED more than a week before Floyd’s claimed death. This, combined with the new video analysis that claims George Floyd’s death was faked using crisis actors, raise serious questions about the authenticity of this event, which appears to have been planned and carried out for political purposes, right in time for the 2020 election. The Obama Foundation Twitter picture is only a tiny fragment in the larger picture that is now emerging of a pre-planned false flag event.

The answer, of course, is that the whole thing was planned in advance. Just like on 9/11 when the media was reporting that the WTC 7 building had collapsed even while it was still standing in the frame directly behind them, it looks like the Obama Foundation got its wires crossed and accidentally started tweeting about George Floyd a week in advance.

Once the first tweet accidentally went out, they couldn’t delete it without raising suspicion about it, so they just left it up and are relying on Big Tech’s censorship to make sure nobody learns the truth that this was all planned in advanced and rigged as public theater.

In fact, there is growing evidence that George Floyd isn’t even dead. We’ll cover more on that later. We’ve already documented the fact that actors are now posing as cops as part of a rioting psyop (psychological operation) that’s being used to brainwash more people into supporting the communist uprising.

YouTube is now banning all videos that discuss the Obama Foundation tweet about George Floyd on May 17th, and Facebook has made sure that no one can share any link from NaturalNews.com as a further suppression of truthful, independent reporting.

COVID: The squeeze play on the population

It’s a con as old as the hills. The ancient chieftain of a little territory looks out across his domain and says to his top aide, “You know, we have these clusters of people worshiping different gods. That’s not good for business. Our business is CONTROL, so we need UNITY. Make up the name of some god, and go out there and sell it. Take down those little shrines and tell all the people they have to believe in the new deity. Use force and censorship when necessary. Later on, I may decide I’M really the name you chose for the new god. We’ll see. If you have any trouble right away, call me on my cell. I’ll be out sunning by the pool.”

Unity of thought. That’s what controllers are after.

In the case of this fake epidemic, the population must view WHAT IT IS in the way public officials and the press are describing it. Dissenting analysis must be pushed into the background.

Here is a 4/9 Bloomberg News headline: “5G Conspiracy Theory Fueled by Coordinated Effort.” [1] A sub-headline states, “Researchers identify disinformation campaign but not source.” The article begins: “A conspiracy theory linking 5G technology to the outbreak of the coronavirus is quickly gaining momentum…”

Obviously, such wayward thinking has to be stopped. And down further in the Bloomberg article, we have chilling news: “Some social media companies have taken action to limit the spread of coronavirus conspiracy theories on their platforms. On Tuesday, Google’s YouTube said that it would ban all videos linking 5G technology to coronavirus, saying that ‘any content that disputes the existence or transmission of Covid-19’ would now be in violation of YouTube policies.”

“In the U.K., a parliamentary committee on Monday called on the British government to do more to ‘stamp out’ coronavirus conspiracy theories, and said it was planning to hold a hearing later this year at which representatives from U.S. technology giants will be asked about how they have handled the spread of disinformation on their platforms.”

Independent analysis of the “epidemic” hangs in the balance. The masters of control want to maintain an information monopoly.

It goes without saying that, in order to achieve this monopoly, detailed surveillance of Internet content is necessary.

Another type of surveillance is also part of the squeeze play. Apple.com has the story (press release, 4/10) [2]:

“Across the world, governments and health authorities are working together to find solutions to the COVID-19 pandemic, to protect people… Since COVID-19 can be transmitted through close proximity to affected individuals, public health officials have identified contact tracing as a valuable tool to help contain its spread. A number of leading public health authorities, universities, and NGOs around the world have been doing important work to develop opt-in contact tracing technology.”

“To further this cause, Apple and Google will be launching a comprehensive solution that includes application programming interfaces (APIs) and operating system-level technology to assist in enabling contact tracing. Given the urgent need, the plan is to implement this solution in two steps while maintaining strong protections around user privacy.”
