Times Square ads jumpstart North Korea human rights campaign



A human rights nonprofit has purchased billboard space in New York City’s Times Square as part of a campaign to refocus discussion on North Korea, NBC News reports:

In July, the Washington-based Committee of Human Rights in North Korea (HRNK), purchased time on an electronic billboard in Times Square to feature three ads — one about the estimated 120,000 North Koreans believed to be incarcerated in political prison camps, according to United Nations officials; one showing a NASA satellite image of a nearly pitch-black North Korea at night; and a third showing a human silhouette trapped in barbed wire along with the phrase “Freedom and justice for North Koreans.”
