Why a civilian uprising in North Korea is unlikely – for now

State control of information flow would make organised opposition almost impossible

A recent blog popular with those who follow North Korean events regularly discussed resistance regarding North Korea.

Although the article did not predict revolution, it may lead to thinking that an armed rebellion is on the horizon. The piece mentioned that there is a level of resistance in the North, with the main focus of the blog on the activities of a group known as the Cheollima Civil Defense, which is either a group of North Korean defectors or a South Korean entity, depending on who you ask. Regardless of which group forms its membership, the organization and its actions are external to the DPRK.
