Video: North Korean activist Yeonmi Park speaks in Hong Kong about her path to freedom

North Korean human rights activist and author Yeonmi Park spoke at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club on Monday about how she and her mother were trafficked across the border into China and sold as slaves.

“I am here today, even though I know I might get killed by Kim Jong-un because I am on his target list since two years ago,” she said. “The people in North Korea have been forgotten for 70 years.”
