Fundraiser for Daily NK at Scrooge Pub in Itaewon this Friday

I've been asked to pass along information about the Daily NK fundraiser at Scrooge Pub in Itaewon this Friday:
#NIGHTOUT with Daily NK:
Turn the lights on in the North by empowering media democracy in the South

Daily NK (, an acclaimed news periodical reporting on all aspects of modern North Korea and cited by major international media—such as the New York Times, The New Yorker, Al Jazeera, and the BBC—will host a casual community outreach event on Friday, July 5, @ Scrooge Pub in Itaewon from 8PM to 10PM. Organized in concert with the media company’s first-ever crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo, the event seeks to foster face-to-face connections between the Seoul-based staff—including democracy activists, North Korean defectors, and international researchers—and the city’s dynamic international community. #NIGHTOUT will include noted guest speaker Kay Seok from Human Rights Watch and the National Democratic Institute, live music, the launch of the Indiegogo campaign, prizes and more.

VOICE IN THE CROWD—CONVERSATION WITH DAILYNK’S PRESIDENT, PARK INHO: A former student activist who campaigned against South Korea’s authoritarianism but was ultimately betrayed by the untruths the Kim Il Sung regime propagated, President Park will speak about his civil society-based organization’s mission to promote the free flow of information on the Korean Peninsula.

The entrance fee is a 10,000 won donation that includes one free drink.
