The mobilized labor is performed by the unit of work place and school. Even though the work is very bothersome, people still have to participate in order not to be criticized. Blunt complaining voices are being heard from the video taken by our reporting partners.
The video taken at northern area shows mobilized people for river improvements. Voice of a woman who is moving heavy stones is being heard: ”How come there is an endeavor labor every two days? I don’t have any energy left after all days of work.”
Mobilized people for weeding are complaining while working: ”This is free labor. All the products are taken by the high ranks after all,” “It is so hard, I am almost dying!”
Complaining voices from the people who are heading for the site to work in heavy rain are being heard:”Isn’t it too much?” “This is the same as saying that we must die,” “They are forcing us to work regardless of the weather being rainy or snowy.” (Paek Chang-ryong, defector reporter)
