Jubilee Movement is a multinational prayer movement started in South Korea for the peaceful reunification of the two Koreas. Famous North Korea human rights activist, Suzanne Scholte, presented the main message.
The Jubilee United Movement began as a revival movement in 2004 in Seoul, South Korea among Christian college students. At first, it was called “The Unified Prayer Movement for Revival.” It spread quickly and by 2007, over forty churches participated. The movement changed its name to Jubilee Unified Prayer Movement in 2008, and in 2012 it began to spread globally. There are currently ten Jubilee chapters in South Korea, along with others in Warsaw, Alaska, California, Sydney, Auckland, Miyazaki, and Chicago. Other chapters are to follow.
Suzanne Scholte especially spoke out for the current condition of the North Korean refugees in China. She pointed out that since North Koreans are refugees, China is obligated by international law to not deport them back to their country. She sharply criticized China, calling it “complacent in premeditated murder” against the refugees. However, she also talked of positive changes in North Korea such as the introduction of a market economy. Lastly, she urged for Christians to take action on behalf of the North Korean refugees.
