DailyNK Cartoon: Black Bloc Bullocks

The North Korean government has sought to jump-start the country’s moribund economy following a protracted covid lockdown. Doubling down on efforts to extract foreign currency from businesspeople, Kim Jong Un’s regime will likely need to focus its energies elsewhere soon. Market vendors in particular have proven susceptible to heavy-handed policies and global inflation. This past month, Daily NK reported an emerging trend of disgruntled North Koreans selling their homes and resorting to tent life in the woods.

This cartoon wonders how a Tankie might imagine making a difference in the lives of beleaguered North Korean comrades.
