Target: Kim Jong Un
Demand: End public executions in North Korea.
North Korea has executed another of its top officials, sources say. This time, the victim was Hyon Yong Chol, one of the country’s highest ranking military officials who also served under Kim Jong Il. According to reports from South Korea, Chol had disagreed with Kim Jong Un on several issues and had also fallen asleep during an important meeting. Apparently Hyon Yong Chol was last seen the last week of April when he attended a performance.
Reports say that Hyon Yong Chol was killed with an anti-aircraft gun in front of hundreds of people. Public executions were popular during the middle ages but much of the world has moved on from this barbaric practice. Urge Kim Jong Un to end public executions in North Korea.
Dear Kim Jong Un,
Hyon Yong Chol, one of your top military officials, is reported to have been killed with an anti-aircraft gun because of differences of opinion. It has also been reported that his execution was done in public, with hundreds of people watching.
This practice is barbaric and inhumane. We the undersigned urge you to end public executions in North Korea.
