Google Maps Exposes North Korean Gulags

With the advent of Google maps, bloggers and internet experts are now able to map the North Korean regime’s gulag network.

Thanks to bloggers and the internet, the North Korean regime’s secret prison camps are being exposed.
The Telegraph reported:

Human rights activists are turning to Google Earth to identify the vast network of prison camps that dot the North Korean countryside and hold as many as 200,000 people deemed hostile to the regime.

Rights groups are pushing the United Nations high commissioner for human rights to open an international investigation into Pyongyang’s “deplorable” record on its citizens’ rights, including a system of political prisons that has operated for more than 50 years.

Pyongyang insists that the camps do not exist and are merely foreign propaganda, but the advent of high-resolution, free images from outer space has disproved that claim.

On January 18, the North Korean Economy Watch website announced that a new camp had been identified alongside an existing detention facility in Kaechon, South Pyongan Province.

Using newly provided Google Earth images, analyst Curtis Melvin was able to conclude that the new camp sits alongside Camp 14 and has a perimeter fence that stretches nearly 13 miles.

One Free Korea has more on the prison camps.

It has only taken the UN ten years to suspect “crimes against humanity” in North Korean prison camp.

    Another “feather” in google’s butt.

    They did no such thing – these camps have been known for decades and maps are all over the internet.

    If you care to see for yourselves – go to youtube and punch in “Children of a Secret State”.

    another great example to question, challenge, humiliate Leftists/Globalists:
    who is it that has done the most for humanity, who is it that has done the most to defend people and human freedom, who is it that has been the Greatest Force for Good?

    what a wonderful example we still have in the world to make our case:
    North Korea.
    do you value equality over all? go to North Korea, everyone is equal
    do you value Socialist controls as the best method to advance human civilization? go to North Korea and behold your Utopia

    For the last 40 years, the UN Human Rights Council has denied that there were gulags in North Korea. Now that Google Maps has exposed these camps for everybody to see, the UN is now stuck with trying to find a new way of denying their existence.

  • Tyrconnell

    UN doesn’t have the resources to investigate North Korea, it’s too busy looking for “proof” of Israeli crimes to justify their jew-hatred.

    Amazing how the supposedly informative MSM lackey that wrote this piece included a lot of links to other MSM articles, but NOT a link to the ACTUAL MAPS.

    Simply amazing.

    Google “DPRK prison camp”.

    Do the journalism schools not teach their students about actual research?

    Even wikipedia has long known:

    All either prison camps for political dissenters, or slave labor camps.

    But OMG Google! found it, and now we can pretend to discuss and be outraged.

    Good God.

    You’re correct. I’ve been following this story for at least five years. I seen a special about this on (I think it was) the Documentary Channel. A young American Asian women interviewed people that escaped the camps and made it to South Korea. The stories are horrible, modern day concentration camps.

    Here’s a detailed pictures of some of the camps from the UK Daily Mail from September of 2011.

    Get ready for Gulags in America if you still believe Traitor in Chief is caring for you.

    Not only has this been public information for many years but our government with its many latest and greatest satellites and vast intelligence organization knew for many years “before” that. They might have not made the information public to conceal the extent of our capabilities and nothing could be done about the camps in any case.

  • dunce

    Upon further reflection, since it seems that this is not new information at all, i have to wonder if this is a PR stunt because of the backlash that Google earth is getting from around the world. Many friendly and hostile governments have demanded restrictions on the public release of countless views.

    Google maps. . .could you please show us satellite pics of the FEMA camps that BHO will have up and running very soon? Would like to know what to pack (for warm/cold weather) and if there are any nearby so that my family can come to visit!!!

  • A few months ago a young man escaped from one of those camps, he said the women who have children never see their child again, this young man had no idea who his Mother and Dad were.. …This dictator is an animal, and needs to be taken down and his people let free…

  • Noovuss

    I thought that was Kentucky FEMA camps, my bad.
