Activist launches anti-regime leaflets toward North Korea to mark Freedom Week

Park Sang-hak says Fighters for a Free North Korea released 20 balloons from border island despite calls for ‘restraint’

A high-profile defector activist said his organization launched balloons carrying anti-regime leaflets toward North Korea on Wednesday to mark North Korea Freedom Week, despite Seoul’s repeated calls for activists to exercise “restraint.”

Fighters for a Free North Korea (FFNK) released the balloons from Ganghwa Island in Incheon, near the inter-Korean border, according to leader Park Sang-hak.
