In response to this week's reported nuclear test by the North Korean government, the North Korea Sanctions Enforcement Act of 2015 may now advance quickly in Congress. It contains provisions that if enacted will severely restrict the very limited humanitarian operations still underway to assist the people of North Korea. The disengagement enforced by current sanctions has decreased rather than enhanced the capacity of the global community to impact policies of the North Korean government. Further disengagement is not the answer.

While this measure is problematic overall, key provisions that would limit humanitarian operations are especially disconcerting.

Humanitarian assistance provides a critical avenue of engagement between the U.S. and North Korea. Humanitarian programs allow North Koreans to engage with U.S. citizens in a collegial manner, foster tolerance, and counter hostile perceptions while improving the livelihoods of the people.

The provisions in the North Korea Sanctions Enforcement Act of 2015 will greatly reduce already limited avenues toward more peaceful relations on the Korean Peninsula.

Please contact your elected officials in Congress now.

Although the fact that I am not an American citizen to have no right to vote in this case, I can't fail to mention the inhumanity that will be the closure of humanitarian access to North Korea, it will mean the definitive, as last light fringe of a lamp that may still exist for a people so massacred by a dictator to the old style, but worse than that, a killer clown. Please humanity is a clear case to keep that glimmer of hope, even if unbeknownst to 95% of the population.of the country.
