16th of February – Rise Up

Activists in South Korea have sent some 200,000 anti-government leaflets across the border with the North, on the birthday of the North’s late leader Kim Jong-il. The North Korean defectors used balloons filled with gas to float the leaflets and $1 bills across the border. The balloons featured slogans such as, “North Koreans rise up” and “The Kim dynasty will soon collapse,” and urged Pyongyang to stop its nuclear tests.
