'North Korea Exposed' - a unique and fascinating Talk by Jeremy Hunter, Award-winning Photojournalist: Coffee Shop, Wednesday, March 9th.

On Wednesday March 9th, Jeremy Hunter came to describe his visit to North Korea, under the guise of a tourist. The sheer idea of being unaware of the world outside your country shocks me. Mr Hunter described how the North Korean people have been led to believe matters that are simply not true and how one man can manipulate and control his people. The Regime is the force in control of North Korea itself and forces its opinions and ideals onto the country as a whole. Mr Hunter then went on to talk about the punishments people were put through if they did not obey the Regime: from having a Bible or a Chinese mobile phone and being sent to a camp for this, to believing in other forms of religion and being executed. The country's overpowering hatred towards the United States is shown in the use of teaching children in schools to learn verbs with the phrase " We kill Americans". The talk was incredible and it gave the audience a huge understanding and insight on a very secluded country.
