[Letters] How to fight against North Korean genocide

North Korea is actively aiming for destruction of every group protected by the Genocide Convention through its decades-long policy of killing the half-Chinese babies of North Korean women forcibly repatriated by China - constituting genocide on national, ethnic, and racial grounds - and via its systematic annihilation of its indigenous religious population - on religious grounds.

How to end this genocide should not be a mystery to anyone. The solution lies within the dictates of the UN Genocide Convention and the Responsibility to Protect principle, where we pledged to intervene first by “appropriate diplomatic, humanitarian, and other peaceful means” and then by force, if necessary, when any given state fails to protect its populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing, and crimes against humanity.
