Some 200 members of the North Korean defectors' group Fighters for Free North Korea and conservative South Korean organizations sent 100,000 pamphlets attached to 10 helium balloons to North Korea on Thursday, the 62nd anniversary of the establishment of North Korea.
The pamphlets condemn North Korea's three generations of hereditary rule. "Was 62 years of dictatorship not enough to oppress the people of North Korea? Do you not feel any compunction about three generations of hereditary dictatorship?" the pamphlets read in part.
The activists, including members of Family Assembly Abducted to North Korea and the Korea Parent Federation floated the leaflets across the border from Imjingak, Gyeonggi Province ahead of a North Korean party congress that is expected to anoint leader Kim Jong-il's son as his heir.
