The Human Rights Foundation and Forum 280 have joined forces to do something pretty extraordinary: cram inconspicuous flash drives full of pro-freedom, unfiltered information from the outside world and then smuggle said drives into North Korea for mass consumption.

Reports the New York Post:

That old USB drive you never use anymore could be the key to unlocking the truth for a North Korean living in the world’s most oppressive regime.

A joint initiative between the Human Rights Foundation and Forum 280 is collecting donated flash drives to be erased and then loaded up with films, e-books and other content from the outside world to eventually be smuggled into North Korea, where citizens will covertly watch in groups. Flash Drives for Freedom, which began as a way to disseminate Western blockbusters and South Korean television, has morphed into a marketplace of documentaries and educational content – with the hope of sparking an intellectual revolution down the line.

Even closed borders will be breeched when liberty is at stake, Free trade for all– including of ideas!
