Balloons with leaflets condemning North Korean leader Kim Jong Il are released by defectors from North Korea and conservative activists at the Imjingak Pavilion near the border village of the Panmunjom, the demilitarized zone which has separated the two Koreas since the Korean War, in Paju, South Korea, Thursday, Sept. 9, 2010. North Korea celebrated its 62nd anniversary Thursday with odes to supreme leader Kim and pilgrimages to his late father's statue amid suggestions that a political meeting believed aimed at promoting his son as successor is imminent. The writing on the balloons reads "Overthrow Kim Jong Il's dictatorship." (AP Photo/Ahn Young-joon)
