LiNK Film Screening of “Hiding”

The Wesleyan chapter of LiNK (Liberty in North Korea) will be hosting a free screening of the film “Hiding” this Wednesday evening.  The film exposes the life of 5 North Korean refugees hiding in China and their attempt to ultimately escape.  While in China, individuals like the ones featured in this film risk repatriation by the Chinese government and subsequent imprisonment upon return to North Korea.  Please join us to learn more about this crisis and support LiNK in their mission to aid North Korean refugees in their struggle for freedom.  There will be a chance to buy LiNK merchandise, make donations, and speak to representatives from the organization for more information.  Food will be provided at the event.
