Petition to China's Xi Jinping to stop repatriation of North Korean refugees to send May 2nd
While the world watches for a possible nuclear missile test by North Korea in the coming days and the Kim Jong Eun regime increases its hostile rhetoric, what an important time to be focusing on promoting the freedom, human rights, and dignity of the North Korean people.
May 2 is the Worldwide Awareness Day for North Korean Refugees. It is imperative that China stop their repatriation of the North Korean Refugees in China! By forcing them back to North Korea they face certain torture, imprisonment and even execution.
Now, that Xi Jinping has assumed the presidency of China and China has shown its increasing displeasure with the North Korea regime, this peaceful Worldwide Awareness Day for North Korean Refugees will focus on direct appeals to Xi to reverse China's repatriation policy - something that is also most definitely in China’s best interest. In fact, the people of China are increasingly voicing their displeasure about their government’s constant support of Kim Jong Eun with his reckless threats and provocations. Yet, just last month, South Korean reporter Joo Sung Ha, released a copy of a Chinese police order that offered rewards to those who turn in North Korean refugees and severe punishment for those who know about refugees and do not turn them into the police.

If we can get this petition signed by as many people as possible from around the world before May 2nd and delivered to the Chinese Embassy/Consulate nearest you on that day, it will send a message that the world is watching!
Here is the fax and e-mail information for the Chinese Consulate in Chicago:

Please forward this to any contacts you may have who would be willing to take part in helping to save the lives of the North Korean refugees in China and who would be willing to gather signatures and hand-deliver, fax, or e-mail, on May 2nd.
We pray and trust this effort will make a difference for the North Korean refugees!
