North Korean Labor Camps – VICE NEWS – Part 1 of 7


[MODEM NOISE] [CEREMONIAL MUSIC] SHANE SMITH: I’ve
been to the most fucked up place on Earth– twice. The Hermit Kingdom
of North Korea. (WHISPERING) It’s
totally insane. The thing is, when you
go to North Korea, you’re not a tourist. You’re on a
government-sanctioned tour. And you can’t go anywhere
outside your hotel without your guide, your translator,
and your secret police. You’re also not allowed
cellphones, radios, or computers of any kind, and are
taken on a tightly scheduled, highly orchestrated tour– only of the sites and
monuments that they want you to see. So you end up travelling for
hours and hours on empty roads only to see the Palace of the
People, or the Library of the People, or the Soccer
Team of the People. The only thing you never get to
actually meet is the people of the people. In fact, you’re not allowed to
talk to anyone unless they’re officially sanctioned
as part of the tour. [VOCAL MUSIC] So when I heard that North Korea
was actually exporting its own people as a way to
generate much-needed hard currency, I wanted to go and see
if I could actually talk to them and maybe find out what
it’s actually like to live inside the Hermit
Kingdom. We found out from one of our
correspondents in Russia that there were actually secret
North Korean labor camps hidden in the depths
of Siberia. So we flew to the far eastern
region of Russia and hopped on the Trans-Siberian railway,
which is essentially the only lifeline for Siberia and
the Far East region. Her bum was hanging
out of her shorts. We’re here in Khabarovsk in
Siberia, we’re about to get on this train for about
28 hours to go to the middle of nowhere. And we’re going to go check out
the secret North Korean labor camps in Siberia. It’s hot as shit. [MUSIC PLAYING] SHANE SMITH: Simon, hi. SIMON OSTROVSKY: Hi. SHANE SMITH: My name is Shane. I’m from America. We’re here with our
friend Simon. We’ve been on the train
for a long time. We’re going a bit goofy. Where are we going? SIMON OSTROVSKY: We’re going to
Tynda, in the Amur region of Russia, in the Far East to
look for the North Koreans. SHANE SMITH: The thing about
this is, it’s mind boggling that North Korea, the most
hermetic state in the world, the Hermit Kingdom it’s
actually called, is outsourcing its labor. But they outsource their labor
into miniature North Korean villages so that you don’t ever
lose the North Korean experience. So it’s like North Korean-type
buildings, North Korean propaganda, North Korean
pictures, North Korean songs. They wake up and sing the
North Korean anthem. SIMON OSTROVSKY: They bring
North Koreans in for three-year contracts. After they’re done working here,
they get sent back to North Korea. They spend a month in a
reintegration camp to get all of the propaganda that
they’ve missed. Most of the workers are over 40
years old, so they all have families back home. So they know that if they try to
run away, then their family back home gets in trouble. SHANE SMITH: The North Koreans
are making money to support the regime. And these poor dudes are out
there in the middle of nowhere singing “God save Kim Jong-Il”
and working in near-slave conditions. SIMON OSTROVSKY: This is kind
of the only place where you can actually have an entre into
how they actually live day-to-day. SHANE SMITH: Question– are we going to get assassinated
for going to talk to the North Koreans? SIMON OSTROVSKY:
Quite possibly. People aren’t going to
be happy to see us. That’s for sure. SHANE SMITH: Why is it that the
best stories always take so long to get to? SIMON OSTROVSKY: Because all
of the easy-to-get-to ones have been done by programs
better than yours. SHANE SMITH: [LAUGH] He’s a prickly pear, this guy. He’s a prickly pear. You should be British because
you’re a cunt. [LAUGH] Now, you have to remember that
everything in Siberia, almost without exception, is very,
very fucking far away from everything else. And even though it was the
height of summer and 100 degrees outside, because it’s
Russia, the heat gauge on the train had been turned on full
and then broken off– probably circa 1971. So the experience is essentially
like being trapped on a boiling-hot, reeking,
drunken sauna 24 hours a day. Oh shit, hello. Now we’ve got crazy dude here. MALE SPEAKER: [SPEAKING RUSSIAN] [LAUGHS] SHANE SMITH: It’s a very good
thing I’ve taken a Xanax. [MUSIC PLAYING]

  1. Sounds like US jails. Once you step out of jail you are under-provision, if you fail to meat the provisions requirements they will issue an arrest warrant on you

  2. Another cheap western propaganda for retard people, twisted story, next time go to ISIS training camps in USA let see haw brave you guy are …

  3. aye its Simon from the video with the dancing Ukrainians who asked what the country is called https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqHeZUS9_EY

  4. The relationship between N Korea and other nations is the beginning of the season of 'peace and security!' declarations. 1Thessalonians 5: 2, 3. Another aspect of this is the hand-shake agreement between Mr Trump and Mr Putin, when they agree they will not wage war; one against the other. This means there will NOT be a nuclear or other war between the US and Russia. But the bad news is that this will not rescue us from the Great tribulation. Another part of the 'peace and security!' declarations appearing is when we see "Peace and security!" declared in Israel; according to the implementation of initiatives now visible. This is also the time of 'sudden destruction', Paul said. 1Thessalonians 5: 2, 3.The Iranians become furious when their nuclear assets are BOMBED by pilots; who refuel in Saudi Arabia. So they 'go forth to annihilate and devote many to destruction' Daniel 11: 44, 45. This bombing of the Middle East is the 'hissing, roaring' missiles in 2Peter 3: 10 that means the 'Old Heavens'; the political system and those leading religions will suddenly 'pass away' in their authority. They became the 'disgusting thing causing desolations' in Matthew 24: 15 that stands in the place of God's now-ruling Kingdom under Christ. Matthew 24: 29, 30. Christ arrives in 'power and great glory' at the beginning of the cataclysm. Christ told His followers in our days in Mark 13: 16 to 'get out' of Judea, at this time. It is a time of 'sudden destruction'; also a time of 'tribulation'. 1Thessalonians 5: 2, 3 Matthew 24: 29, 30. There are 'signs' in the 'sun, moon and stars' that herald the arrival of Christ in Kingdom glory. Luke 21: 25, 26. You will not miss these 'signs'. But the political system under UNSC authority continues in its war between the US, allies and Iran, as indicated in Daniel 8: 20, 23-25 and Iran itself is bombed, as seen in Jeremiah 49: 35-38. So these aggressive acts are the 'desolations' Matthew 24: 15 because the world financial system goes through a sudden and shocking collapse; as seen in Revelation 18: 17 and Ezekiel 7: 19. This is first seen in the collapse of the Euro, with a banking systems freeze-up in the EU, that spreads worldwide; throwing 'Lehman' crises onto the US, Australia and all around the world; at a time of warfare Jeremiah 25: 24-26 and worldwide wrath Revelation 11: 18.
    Satan the Devil; Gog of Magog [Revelation 20: 1-10] came upon the 'soil of Israel', with the 'sudden destruction' Paul indicated when they were saying: "Peace and security!" 1Thessalonians 5: 2, 3. This means Jehovah God will speak, according to his promise in Ezekiel 38: 18, 19. Almighty God has changed the worldwide government. That is why Christ has arrived in 'power and great glory' Matthew 24: 29, 30. That is why also the political system, who are engaged in 'desolations' Matthew 24: 15 are now on death-row. Revelation 19: 11, 19-21. They will all be EXECUTED at the appointed time, for what they do. Jehovah's Day of anger appeared at the same time the Great tribulation manifest the appearance of Christ 'in power and great glory' Zephaniah 2: 1-11, Matthew 24: 21, 22 Matthew 24: 29, 30. And when Jehovah's Day appeared, according to Zephaniah's words there; the places suddenly in distress and battle are Gaza, Ashkelon, Ashdod and Ekron. Christ Jesus told His followers to 'get out' of Judea at this time; Mark 13: 16 it is a time of 'sudden destruction', with bombs from Iran falling on the Middle East; when 'Peace and security!" is being declared. Jerusalem, in the Middle East, is the first city destroyed as the events of the Great tribulation Jeremiah 25: 29. These are the 'wrath of nations' appearing. Also manifest is wrath among and between all 23 Arab states at this time. This is due to the original destruction of SHEA Iran's nuclear assets by pilots who refuel in SUNNI Saudi Arabia. This trips off bloodshed among all 23 Arab states Jeremiah 25: 24. The wrath Revelation 11: 18 wars appearing Jeremiah 25: 24-26 and the financial meltdown Revelation 18: 17 Ezekiel 7: 19 Psalms 46: 4-6 Isaiah 2: 18-20 Isaiah 55: 1 are all occurring at the same time; as the present system is now OVER. Romans 9: 28.
    But the sheep- like true Christians are all seen gathered together in the protection of God's Kingdom at the time of Christ's arrival in Matthew 25: 31, 34. These faithful, meek and righteous ones, and their children are being safeguarded for SURVIVAL. John 3: 16 Psalms 37: 11, 29 Revelation 7: 9, 14-17.
    But the day comes after five months of crisis Revelation 9: 5, 10 corresponding to the 150 days of Noah's flood, seen in Genesis 7: 24 Matthew 24: 37 the wicked are all DESTROYED as seen in Psalms 92: 7 and Psalms 37: 8-10 because this act by Almighty God Jehovah makes the Great tribulation END. So these would correspond to the 'goats' in Matthew 25: 31-46. Even Satan the Devil; Gog of Magog is EXECUTED Revelation 20: 10 after spending 1,000 years in prison Revelation 20: 1-3. The political system is also EXECUTED. Revelation 19: 11, 19-21. So all those CAUSING the Great tribulation are brought to their end by the God of prophecy. Jehovah has made this written matter KNOWN for the purpose of maximising the number of those being SAVED at the conclusion of this system. Christ Jesus suffered and died to make this rescue possible; and He now comes to save those whom He has already died for. So those who LOVE God can survive into something a lot better than we now see. This planet is to be cleansed and beautified; redeveloped and re-organised until it resembles a Paradise Luke 23: 43 where even the dead of former times Acts 24: 15 Revelation 20: 13 will come back to life. The true God has not abandoned us; and the wicked will not be able to overcome Jehovah's actions, now in writing for us John 17: 17. WHO will seek more information? WHO will support the pathetic wrath of powers that are to be done away with? Who will recognise the truth today, to benefit from it tomorrow?

    At a time of EURO collapse; and a banking systems freeze-up, the EU will be in famine; and WAR will break out between Russia and the EU. Ezekiel 7: 19-22. The 'hidden treasures' taken by the Russian Federation are the artefacts of the Vatican and the churches in the EU. The nuclear devices along the border with Russia will all be disabled at the time of Russian blitzkrieg war with the EU. Psalms 46: 6, 9. This war is parallel to the war between the US, allies and Iran Daniel 11: 44, 45 Daniel 8: 20, 23-25. These wars create worldwide wrath, as seen in Revelation 11: 18. Also included in prophecy are wars appearing among and within all 23 Arab states. Jeremiah 25: 24. The ransacking of Christendom, and the decimation of it; is part of prophecy for the time of the Great tribulation. 2Thessalonians 2: 2-12. This is already visible in Russia and in China today. Christ's 'manifestation', is seen in 2Thessalonians 2:8 in parallel with Matthew 24: 29, 30. Christ arrives 'in power and great glory'.
    SUDDENLY Christ arrives 'like a thief in the night'. 1Thessalonians 5: 2.
    The enriched uranium nuclear assets of Iran will be BOMBED. The pilots refuel in Saudi Arabia.

  5. When there is a declaration of "Peace and security!", also 'sudden destruction' arrives 1Thessalonians 5: 2, 3. What happens, according to Scripture?

  6. North Koreans have to praise and praise Kim Jong-un just like God, but most North Koreans are suffering from terrible poverty in fact. It's an outdated laughable country in Asia.

  7. Couldn't turn it down. It's a full Russian experience without some random russian dude asking to drink vodka with you.

  8. 4:38 Well that was a totally offensive & uncalled for remark. I don't think I'll even bother watching the rest actually after hearing that shit. What an obnoxious little turd.

  10. When you think 🤔 of Siberia you think of reindeer and freezing cold and ice n snow! Not a 🌞 Burnt white dude saying it’s hot as shit!

  11. VICE/LIBTURD T.v. this is how the Democrat libtards see the future of America. Everything the dems say now seems like free love and money. With promise of eliminating white males to make everyone happy then they move on to black males. This nation is moving toward Shit

  12. 0:24 this pretty much the definition of North Korea except for the fact that there wouldn’t be anyone behind Kim jong il,

  13. Ayy Vice look at ya'll. You used to have ethical standards, now you're an actual pile of pandering bullshit or propaganda in some cases.

  14. What happened Vice? These types of documentary are what I used to look forward to after school. Now, it's crap docs. With crap journalists.

  15. vice was founded by a group of ex communist's turned libertarian conservative's, very unbiased, super objective, no state department agenda, only pure….

  16. Who grants you the moral compass Vice?! Especially if America is the reason why North Korea is under the condition it is in. You're propagandists pieces of shit

  17. do you think if america had labor camps or political camps or whatever that koreans would be making documentaries about it and basically protesting? fuuuuck no so why the fuck should we care? I mean yeah its sad but they wouldnt care about us so fuck them

  18. I wonder how many people got killed, imprisoned and/or tortured by your reckless actions. Yes, it is funny, but you endangered the lives of these disgraced people that happen to be born on a crazy country.

  19. Workers to slave away? Yeah… why not just call them slaves, that's what they are. Their concentration camps are even worse, where women are raped on a daily basis and people resort to cannibalism to survive, just because they disrespected their supposed deity. It's a horrible regime, and completely insane. Kim Jong-un, what a fuckin asshole, just like his dad. May he not rest in peace.

  20. This is the time when Dictators will be removed from the planet. There will be no further tolerance for such behavior. Nations comprised of fearless people will band together to remove them once and for all. Peace is in our future. The time is now.

  21. "Its a really good thing I've taken a Xanax." He says as he drinks Vodka. Wonder what happened when the cameras went off.
