Liberty in North Korea director Hannah Song argues that governments cannot hold back change, even in a country as oppressive as North Korea. She describes how North Koreans have learned to provide for themselves after surviving economic catastrophe and famine. Ordinary North Korean citizens are now looking to grassroots activism and technology as sources of change. Despite the regime’s best efforts to stop this newfound hope and self-reliance, these movements continue to grow in strength, and Song believes that long-term change in North Korea is inevitable.
