National Meeting Marks War Victory Day in DPRK

Pyongyang, July 26 (KCNA) -- A national meeting took place in the plaza of the Monument to the Victorious Fatherland Liberation War on Wednesday to celebrate the 64th anniversary of the victory in the Fatherland Liberation War.
Present there were Kim Yong Nam, Hwang Pyong So, Pak Pong Ju, Choe Ryong Hae and other senior party, state army officials, members of the party central leadership in Pyongyang, officials of party and armed forces organs, ministries and national institutions, men and officers of the Korean People's Army and the Korean People's Internal Security Forces, officials of institutions and industrial establishments in the city, persons of merit, youth and students and the chief of the Pyongyang mission of the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front and overseas compatriots.
Army General Pak Yong Sik, member of the Political Bureau of the C.C., Workers' Party of Korea and minister of the People's Armed Forces, made a report at the meeting.
The reporter said that the Korean people humbled the arrogance of the U.S. imperialists who boasted of being the "strongest" in the world on July 27, Juche 42 (1953) and won a great victory in the Fatherland Liberation War. This was a historical event that guaranteed the eternal future of the country and the nation, he said, and went on:
July 27 is a proud revolutionary holiday in which the DPRK beat back the formidable U.S. imperialism for the first time in the world history of wars and recorded the first page of great victory in the history of confrontation with the U.S.
The Fatherland Liberation War was an actually hard-fought battle for the just 2-year-old DPRK as it had to beat back the U.S.-led imperialist allied forces, and it was the fiercest revolutionary war in the world history of wars.
It was something beyond common sense for the DPRK with a short history of its regular army and weapons found insufficient and weak economic potentials to fight a modern war against the U.S. imperialists which became corpulent and fatty through aggression and plunder.
When the whole world was following the developments in Korea, holding its breath, President Kim Il Sung, an ever-victorious and iron-willed brilliant commander, expressed the resolute will to show the stamina of the Koreans to the enemies and aroused the entire army and all the people to the do-or-die battle against the U.S. imperialists.
In hearty response to his speech "Every Effort for the Victory of War" aired over radio, the Korean army and people rose as one and waged a do-or-die battle to defeat the U.S. imperialist aggressors and created a legendary story about the victory in the war, going beyond the expectation of the world people.
The shining victory won by the Korean people in the war was a military miracle in the 20th century that put an end to the myth of the U.S. "mightiness" and made the beginning of final ruin of U.S. imperialism.
The feats of significance in the history of the nation and the world performed by the President, who led the war to victory and thus saved the destiny of the country and the nation and made undying contributions to the anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. struggle and the cause of human emancipation, will shine for all ages with the victorious advance of the great Paektusan nation.
The U.S. imperialists are now working hard to mount a reckless military attack on the DPRK, taken aback by its might getting stronger day by day as a world-level nuclear and rocket power.
If the enemies keep to the "theory of preemptive nuclear attack" threatening their own lifeline, misjudging the strategic position of the DPRK, the invincible Paektusan army will mount the most telling preemptive nuclear attack on the heart of the American empire without any warning or advance notice, as it had already declared, and thus eliminate the U.S. from the surface of the earth and achieve the historic cause of the country's reunification without fail. -0-

KCNA Commentary Terms S. Korean Forces Group of Traitors

Pyongyang, July 25 (KCNA) -- The south Korean authorities are mulling bringing into south Korea U.S. Cargo Ship Lane Victory.
The ship is a crime-ridden ship as it took to south Korea a great number of citizens from the north through A-bomb scare. It was one of those ships which the U.S. imperialists mobilized for the "Hungnam withdrawal operation" when they were put to rout as the People's Army made re-advance during the last Korean War.
The puppet forces plan to bring the heap of scrap iron, on the verge of being disposed of as scrapped material in the U.S., to Koje Island, calling it "symbol of south Korea-U.S. alliance", and are now trumpeting about building a memorial park meant to "remind the visitors of the miracle of Hungnam withdrawal and meaning of peace".
Blasting off the ship would not be enough to give vent to the wrath and grudge born by the Korean nation. Yet, the senseless traitors without an iota of blood and soul of the nation are going to buy it at the expense of billions of won and incite submission to the U.S.
Such act of serving the U.S., which imposed untold holocaust and disaster on the Korean nation, as "benefactor" is an intolerable insult and mockery of all Koreans.
As for the "Hungnam withdrawal operation", it was recorded as the one in which the U.S. troops took to flight after leaving not only their combat and technical hardware but also their fellows who became terribly frozen after sustaining the bitterest defeat in its history of wars of aggression by the Lake Jangjin at the end of 1950.
The GIs appeased thousands of DPRK citizens into boarding the ship, because they needed "human shields" for saving their lives.
The U.S. imperialists were never "savior" nor "apostle of peace" in view of the heinous murderous crimes they committed in the southern half of Korea during the Korean War.
The peaceable citizens were mercilessly massacred at the order of firing into all evacuees, all those in white clothes. The U.S. imperialists killed 147,000 people in Seoul only from September 1950 to February 1951 just before retreat.
Those who were massacred in south Korea during the war number more than 1.24 million.
A French paper commented that "biggest monstrous act in the 20th century was committed in Korea by GIs", over the fact that the U.S. imperialist ogres skinned heads of patriots and kept them as "souvenirs".
However, the south Korean pro-U.S. stooges eulogize the monsters with such rhetoric as "noble sacrifice" and "supreme humanitarian operation" and even plan to bring the ship stained with blood of the Korean nation and educate south Koreans in sycophancy and submission.
It is the shame on the nation that the puppet forces are beautifying the gangsters as "saviors".
The south Korean authorities should stop the treacherous act at once, clearly understanding that they will be cursed and censured as traitors to the nation generation after generation, should they introduce the ship. -0-

ASSPUK,JISGE, UK KFA and BSCPRKP slam evil assasination and regime change scenario of the US imperialists !

         25th  of July Juche 106(2017)
The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK (ASSPUK) , the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE), the UK Korean Friendship Association (UK KFA )  , and the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification in Korea (BSCPRKP) issued a joint statement denouncing the remarks of the CIA Director Pompeo on "removal of the supreme leadership" of the DPRK !!!

  On the 20th of July the boss of the US Central Intelligence Agency(CIA) Mike Pompeo said at a security forum that at what is most dangerous about the north Korean nuclear issue is the character who holds the control over the nuclear weapons and that the intelligence community and the US Department of Defense are figuring out the way to separate the weapons from someone who might well have intent to use them.
 Basically Pompeo has finally let the cat out of the bag and admitted that the US is committed to the removal of the DPRK supreme leadership, regime change and the destruction of the socialist system in the DPRK. The basic aim of the US imperialists is to make the DPRK their colony and restore the capitalist system. This has been an open secret for decades but now Pompeo the CIA boss has opened his big mouth and blabded it out loud.
   Earlier this year it was revealed that the US CIA and south Korean National Intelligence Service had tried to employ a renegade and traitor to assasinate the supreme leadership of the DPRK. Years ago the CIA planned to assasinate the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG . The US  imperialists  aim at removing the supreme leadership of the DPRK in order to destroy the socialist system because the leader is the centre of unity and the supreme brain of the revolution.
  As a spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry stated  "Although his reckless remarks are just balderdash of a guy who has become so angrily desperate due to the ever-increasing nuclear strike capability of the DPRK, they have gone over the line, and it has now become clear that the ultimate aim of the Trump administration's hostile policy towards the DPRK is the "regime change" in the DPRK.
That the person who is supposed to be in charge of all foreign intelligence in the U.S., harbors an illusion that it could separate our army and people from our supreme leadership is an expression of his illiteracy about the DPRK and an explicit illustration of incompetence of the U.S. intelligence community" The Yankee imperialists and their cohorts have carried out assasinations and attempted assasinations all over the world . These included Partice Lumumba the leader of the Congo , Salvador Allende the president of Chile, Saddam Hussein the former Iraqi leader and Col Gadhafi the leader of Libya.  They also conspired unsuccessfully to assasinate the late Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro.However the DPRK is not Libya or Iraq or Yugoslavia. The people are united around the dear respected leader Marshal KIM JONG UN and the great Workers' Party of Korea. They will never tolerate any attempt to harm the supreme leadership of the DPRK . As the DPRK Foreign Ministry says " Our army and people have never thought about their destiny and future separated from their supreme leadership.
The first and foremost mission of our revolutionary armed forces with the nuclear force as their backbone is to defend the leader at the cost of their lives."
 We suppport this strong and militant resolve  of the DPRK to defend their leader , system and ideology . We totally and utterly condemn this evil attempts of the US imperialists at regime change
The progressive community of the world must defend the socialist system of the DPRK and expose all attempts to destroy . A powerful movement must be built to defend Korean style socialism and the Juche idea!
HANDS OFF PEOPLE'S KOREA !

YANKEE GO HOME !

DPRK FM Spokesman Slams U.S. CIA Director's Remarks

Pyongyang, July 25 (KCNA) -- A spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) gave the following answer to question put by KCNA on July 25, over the fact that the director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) dared to talk about "removal of the supreme leadership" of the DPRK:
On July 20, the U.S. CIA Director Pompeo mentioned impertinently, at a security forum hosted by a civilian organization, about the "removal of the supreme leadership" of the DPRK, saying that what is most dangerous about the north Korean nuclear issue is the character who holds the control over the nuclear weapons and that the intelligence community and the Department of Defense are figuring out the way to separate the weapons from someone who might well have intent to use them.
Although his reckless remarks are just balderdash of a guy who has become so angrily desperate due to the ever-increasing nuclear strike capability of the DPRK, they have gone over the line, and it has now become clear that the ultimate aim of the Trump administration's hostile policy towards the DPRK is the "regime change" in the DPRK.
That the person who is supposed to be in charge of all foreign intelligence in the U.S., harbors an illusion that it could separate our army and people from our supreme leadership is an expression of his illiteracy about the DPRK and an explicit illustration of incompetence of the U.S. intelligence community.
The successive U.S. administrations could not but fail in the DPRK-U.S. confrontation. That is also attributable to the "merits" of such stupid intelligence community of the U.S.
Our army and people have never thought about their destiny and future separated from their supreme leadership.
The first and foremost mission of our revolutionary armed forces with the nuclear force as their backbone is to defend the leader at the cost of their lives.
The DPRK legally stipulates that if the supreme dignity of the DPRK is threatened, it must preemptively annihilate those countries and entities that are directly or indirectly involved in it, by mobilizing all kinds of strike means including the nuclear ones.
We will find out and smash all those who intend to do something against our supreme leadership, wherever they are. This is an immutable and indomitable will of the army and people of the DPRK.
We once again felt deep in our hearts from the reckless remarks of the CIA director how just it was that we have achieved the great historic cause of completing the nuclear force by overcoming all difficulties and trials.
Should the U.S. dare to show even the slightest sign of attempt to remove our supreme leadership, we will strike a merciless blow at the heart of the U.S. with our powerful nuclear hammer, honed and hardened over time.
The likes of Pompeo will bitterly experience the catastrophic and miserable consequences caused by having dared to shake their little fists at the supreme leadership, our eternal sun and everything of life for our nation. -0

What is Juche?

UK KFA slams the anti-DPRK lies of the FCO human rights report on People's Korea

                                               


The UK Korean Friendship Association issued the following statement today in connection with the publication of the so-called 'Human Rights and Democracy Report 2016" by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office, which gravely slandered the Democratic People's Republic of Korea over the human rights issue :
                                     

   We totally condemn and reject  the publication of the 'Human Rights and Democracy Report 2016'
by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office .
 Firstly, it constitutes gross interference in the internal affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea . As it slanders the socialist system of the DPRK and denies the independence of the DPRK and the right of the DPRK to choose its own system and idea , it is a hostile act against People's Korea and severely detrimental to building friendly and beneficial relations with People's Korea .
 Secondly, the report is just full of lies and slanders. The report is not based on objective evidence but instead on accounts from 'defectors ' from the DPRK as well US imperialists and south Korean puppets.It looks like it has been copied and pasted from the US goverment and south Korean puppet regime. Basically , the UK FCO is simply adding to the pile of anti-DPRK propaganda and fake news .                                                           



 Thirdly , there is no human rights problem in the DPRK. The people of  enjoy the right to housing , to education , to free medical care , to work and even have holidays paid for a state expense ! Everyone in the DPRK  supports dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN and the Workers Party of Korea and they are happy to build socialism. The great  Juche Idea which stresses the independence and creativity of man and also always stresses the role of ideology rather than seeking to use administrative or coercive methods to mobilise people for socialist construction.So basically there cannot be such a thing as a "human rights "problem" in the DPRK.
                                               

   Moreover the People's Korea is a true people's democracy based on the Juche idea and the single-hearted unity of the people around dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN and the Workers' Party of Korea. In the DPRK virtually 100 per cent of electors vote in elections whereas in the UK the turnout at the last general election (which was said to be a record high) was 68.8 per cent . It is ironic that a government elected by only 30 per cent of the electorate is lecturing a country where the government is elected by nearly 100 per cent of electors . The UK needs to put its own house in order before it is criticises. In the DPRK the electors also have the right to recall deputies.
  Fourthly, it is very hypocritical for the UK goverment to take issue with People's Korea over human rights when you have the situation in the UK where people have to go to foodbanks for food. In the UK there are people denied the right to work, the right to housing , the right to security in old age and many other rights. There is a very long list of human rights violations by the UK which would take a long time to list. In the past the UK has violated human rights in other countries when it had colonies such as Kenya  and Malaya.The DPRK has never had colonies , never had troops or military bases in other countries nor tried to impose its will on other countries.
                                             

 Fiftly, the FCO report is really about 'regime change '  in the DPRK , not human rights. What the FCO mean when they talk grandly about extending 'human rights' and 'democracy ' , is to support the overthrow of the people-centred , Juche-based socialist system and restore the capitalist system. The FCO is colluding with the US imperialists and the south Korean fascist puppets in their anti-DPRK campaign to topple socialism in People's Korea and make it a colony of US imperialism. The report reeks of British imperialist arrogance.
 UK KFA calls for the FCO and British government to end their interference in the DPRK and also to pursue an independent foreign policy free from US influence. The British government should drop the daydream of regime change in the DPRK and instead  fully respect the independence of the DPRK and its socialist system , The UK should build mutually benefical and friendly relations with the DPRK.
HANDS OFF PEOPLE'S KOREA !
NO TO BRITISH IMPERIALIST INTERFERENCE IN PEOPLE'S KOREA

Korean Women Organizations Calls for Final Settlement of Japan's Hideous Crimes

Pyongyang, July 24 (KCNA) -- The Women Sub-Committee of the North Side Committee for Implementing June 15 Joint Declaration, the Women Headquarters of the South Side Committee for Implementing June 15 Joint Declaration, the Central Standing Committee of the Korean Democratic Women's Union in Japan and the South Korean Women Association for Democracy in Japan sent an appeal to all compatriots at home and abroad Monday on the lapse of 110 years after Japan's fabrication of the "Jongmi Seven-Point Treaty".
The appeal said that the "treaty", Japan cooked up in a coercive manner by instigating pro-Japanese lackeys, was an illegal, brigandish and aggressive one unprecedented in history. Under the "treaty" Japan deprived Korea of sovereignty by completely controlling Korea's internal affairs and enforcing the "resident-general policy".
The appeal stressed that all hideous crimes committed by the Japanese imperialists against the Korean nation can never be written off and no statute of limitations is applicable to them.
Expressing the will of all Korean women in the north and the south and abroad to stand in the van of the struggle for forcing Japan, a sworn enemy, to pay for all its past crimes, it made the following appeal to the whole fellow countrymen at home and abroad:
Firstly, let us come out as one in the struggle for the final settlement of all hideous state-sponsored crimes committed by the Japanese imperialists against the Korean nation after illegally occupying Korea.
All Koreans in the north and the south and abroad should rise up and get thousand-fold price for the Japanese imperialists' aggression and thrice-cursed crimes that can never be pardonable.
Let's resolutely reject the pro-Japanese remnants' sycophancy and treachery conniving at and shielding Japan's hideous crimes!
Secondly, let's turn out in a nation-wide struggle to get compensation from Japan for the crime of sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army unprecedented in history without fail.
Let us fully disclose the truth behind Japan's sexual slavery crime before the world and decisively foil the shameless and cunning moves of Japan to evade its responsibility for the crime and cover it!
Let us totally nullify and repeal the humiliating and illegal "agreement" on sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army concluded by pro-Japanese traitorous forces with Japan!
Thirdly, let's intensify the struggle to smash Japan's scheme for revival of militarism and reinvasion and frustrate its unreasonable hostile acts against the Korean nation.
In Japan, "Tok Islets are part of Japan's territory" are still heard and such claim is written in the defense white paper and textbooks and the ruling quarters are visiting the Yasukuni Shrine to revive militarism.
All Koreans at home and abroad should never tolerate but thoroughly smash Japan's shameless attempt for grabbing Tok Islets.
Let us conduct more vigorous activities to check the conclusion of military agreement and the strengthening of "alliance" with Japan, an act of paving the road for Japan's reinvasion and selling the interests of the nation!
Let the whole Korean nation turn out against the Japanese authorities' unreasonable and vicious political crackdown upon the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan and Koreans in Japan and abuse of their human rights!
Women organizations in the north and the south and abroad express expectation and conviction that all the compatriots would courageously come out in the nation-wide patriotic struggle to make Japan pay for all its past hideous crimes and defend the dignity and sovereignty of the Korean nation. -0-

KCNA Commentary Denounces Attempt to Revive Conservatism in S. Korea

Pyongyang, July 24 (KCNA) -- The issuance of "commemorative stamp" for marking the lapse of 100 years since the emergence of traitor Park Chung-hee in south Korea was cancelled.
The Liberal Korea Party and Parun Party members assert the issuance of stamp marking the anniversary of emergence of Park is "obligation of our generation", complaining it is unacceptable to nullify all the decisions of the preceding government, and the reason behind the cancellation should be looked into.
This is the desperate act of the group of traitors seized with extreme uneasiness, prompted by the calculation that the cancellation can be a catalyst giving momentum to the anti-conservative spirit among people of all social standings.
Park was a heinous sycophant and traitor, fascist dictator and confrontational maniac who committed indelible crimes against the nation including the south Koreans.
He enforced the unprecedented "yusin" fascist dictatorship for 18 years, turning whole south Korea into prison without bars, and built the cursed concrete walls, symbolic of national division and confrontation, on this land.
The stamp plan was railroaded last September under the manipulation of Park Geun Hye who set it as her life-long goal to ensure "reinstatement" of her father. It is the dreg of bad administration that should have been eliminated long before along with the impeachment of Park as desired by the south Korean public.
However, the group of conservatives from opposition parties has strongly reacted to the cancellation of the stamp plan, an intolerable mockery and challenge to the candlelight demonstrators.
In the past the group of conservatives held the farce of "state compilation" of history textbook distorting the truth of history and went busy setting up "Committee for Promotion of Commemoration of Park Chung-hee" and erecting a statue of the "yusin" dictator.
All facts prove that the remnants of the "yusin" group, the conservative forces are made up of sordid and heinous persons thinking of prolonging their remaining days even when they breathe their last, being driven into a tight corner.
Unless the remnants of "yusin" dictatorship are removed, the same dark era of disgrace and misfortune as the period of Park's rule can come again.
The south Koreans from all walks of life should never tolerate the wild act of the group of traitors to revive conservatism while eulogizing the "yusin" dictator, but resolutely throw it overboard. -0

KCNA Commentary Lashes Out at Pressure for S. Korea-U.S. Renegotiation over FTA


Pyongyang, July 22 (KCNA) -- The U.S. is pressurizing south Korea into gangster-like renegotiations over the "Free Trade Agreement" for its own profits.

Recently Trump let the U.S. trade mission unilaterally notify the south Korean authorities that it would get into procedures for the renegotiations over FTA.

This shows the true colors of brazen-faced gangster U.S. as it does not care for the destiny of its colonial servant for its own interests.

Now the economy of south Korea has been reduced to economy of extreme deformity and partiality owing to the U.S. colonial economic policy for over seven decades.

After the military occupation of south Korea, the U.S. gripped all economic arteries of south Korea under the control of the Japanese imperialists, claiming they were "enemy properties," and reduced the south Korean economy into dependent, colonial and subcontract one by every means and method such as "aid," loan, direct investment and market opening serving the interests of the U.S. economy.

At present the U.S. moves to control the south Korean economy find their most striking manifestation in signing FTA.

The south Korea-U.S. FTA signed by the U.S. by forcing traitor Lee Myung Bak is the unequal and shackling one as seven articles of FTA stipulate commitments of the U.S. while 55 articles for south Korea.

During the Park Geun Hye's office the U.S. forced south Korea to fling open its market, import more American beef and fully open its rice market, the only one in grain market of south Korea, claiming that the U.S. suffered more losses than south Korea after the signing of FTA.

Now south Korea depends 87-100 percent of raw materials and fuel necessary for industrial production, 70 percent of spare parts and other materials, core and source technology for production, on the U.S. and outsiders.

American multinational capitals infiltrated into south Korea in various forms and methods like direct or indirect investment, loan, technology cooperation and joint bank to get colonial excess profit, enjoying all kinds of privileges from south Korea.

They become the biggest stockholders having 40-80 percent of stocks of trade banks and main business groups which are the backbone of the south Korean economy and control the whole economy including fund oversight, equipment investment, production and employment. Every year the U.S. gets more than five billion U.S. dollars from south Korea in the name of dividend alone.

It is due to amend the unequal articles which are unilaterally profitable for the U.S.

However, the south Korean authorities are looked down, keeping mum at the U.S. arbitrary brigandish demand.

The south Korean people can never be free from the poor position as colonial slave and evade disgrace, misfortunes and sufferings as long as the U.S. economic domination and sycophantic and humiliating acts of the south Korean authorities are allowed to go on.

If the south Korean authorities represent the mindset of the candlelight demonstrators, they should resolutely break with the pro-U.S. sycophantic and servile policy after recovering their senses, before it is too late. -0-

ASSPUK, JISGE , UK KFA and BSCPKP denounce US-sk FTA 'renegotiations '

22nd of July Juche 106(2017)
The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK (ASSPUK) , the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE), the UK Korean Friendship Association (UK KFA )  , and the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification in Korea (BSCPRKP) issued a joint statement concerning the renegotiations for the so-called 'Free Trade Agreement ' between the US and south Korea :
 As revealed by a statement of a spokesman for the DPRK National Economic Co-Operation Committee recently Trump let the U.S. trade mission unilaterally notify the south Korean authorities that it would get into the procedures for the re-negotiations over FTA and, accordingly, south Korea was forced into sitting before the humiliating negotiating table. The DPRK National Economic Co-operation Committee rightly pointed out that "The recent unilateral notification concerning the FTA renegotiations by Trump clearly proves the impudent nature of the U.S. indifferent to the destiny of a colonial stooge for its own interests ... By nature, the south Korea-U.S. FTA was signed as traitor Lee Myung Bak yielded to the U.S. pressure, and it is an unequal and traitorous "agreement" nothing helpful to the people's livelihood"
   This is indeed very true. So-called FTA's such as the one between the US and south Korea are always a disaster for the people. FTA's are at the same time an instrument and product of globalisation . FTA's wreck economies and cause mass unemployment . Moreover they subvert and strangle economic independence and also favour big countries at the expense of small countries.
  The US is not a friend or helper of south Korea but the strangler of its independence  as well as its chief exploiter and oppressor .
  The south Korean people need to establish Juche and chase out the US imperialists. South Korea needs economic independence .Instead of 'Free Trade Agreements with the US and other imperialists south Korea should take the road of Juche-based economic independence and also the road of inter-Korean co-operation.

Juche-based economics work !-special article by Dr Dermot Hudson

                                                 

Something that is being shared a lot and commented on is a report from the south Korean puppet Bank of Korea about the DPRK economy . The headline in Reuters says "North Korea 2016 economic growth at 17-year high despite sanctions: South Korea" . This news is being carried by all sorts of news outlets  even the every right wing  "The Daily Mail".
In fact the 3.9 per cent figure, that is quoted by the media for  the DPRK'seconomic growth is actually a gross underestimate . The real figure is much higher than that , probably several times that. The DPRK media have reported increases in industrial output value for several industries as being 20 per or 30 per cent year on increases . For example during the 70 Day Campaign in the spring of 2016 industrial out value shot up by 1.6 times or 60 per cent as compared to the previous year. So the figures produced by the south Korean puppets are actually very mean indeed and do not accurately reflect the high speed growth of the DPRK economy.
      In the past the DPRK raced ahead at Chollima speed (Chollima being a mythical horse that could cover a 1,000 kilometres in one day , now the Korean people under the leadership of dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN have created a new speed , Mallima speed (Mallima is said to fly 10,000 kilometres per day)
 
                             

What they are not telling people is even the grudging 3.9 per cent figure is higher than the 2.7 per cent growth claimed for the south Korean puppet economy , abour 40 per cent higher .In fact the reactionaries do not know that the term “Korean Miracle “ was first used by the famous Cambridge economist  Professor Joan V Robinson to describe the DPRK . Writing the highly respected journal "Monthly Review " in 1964 that she said that“"Eleven years ago in Pyongyang there was not one stone standing upon another. (They reckon that one bomb, of a ton or more, was dropped per head of population.) Now a modern city of a million inhabitants stands on two sides of the wide river, with broad tree-lined streets of five-story blocks, public buildings, a stadium, theatres (one underground surviving from the war) and a super-de luxe hotel. The industrial sector comprises a number of up-to-date textile mills and a textile machinery plant. The wide sweep of the river and little tree-clad hills preserved as parks provide agreeable vistas. There are some patches of small gray and white houses hastily built from rubble, but even there the lanes are clean, and light and water are laid on. A city without slums."”
The highly respected UK social scientist Malcolm Caldwell who was a lecturer at School of Oriental and African Studies . In his book "The Wealth of Some Nations " he notes that from 1954 to 1970/71 the DPRK rate of industrial output growth was 23.5% whereas that of south Korea was 15.3% so the DPRKs rate of growth was over 50 % higher(siimilar to now)
   It is worth pointing that the DPRK has enjoyed 17 years of straight economic growth and was unaffected by the 2008 crisis of the capitalist countries. Unlike south Korea, the DPRK did not need to be bailed out by the IMF. In fact the DPRK does not know austerity.
The various media commentators  do correctly point out that the DPRK's economic growth has been achieved despite sanctions. However they do not go deep enough in their analysis . Not only is the DPRK's economic growth higher than that of south Korea but most importantly it is self-reliant economic growth, the basic engine for the DPRK's growth is the Juche-based independent national economy, whereas as south Korea's "growth " is based entirely on foreign capital and loans .
Finally , in the DPRK economic growth is used entirely for the people's , it goes to increasing wages, building new housing , schools and hospital whereas in south Korea and other capitalist countries any money from increased economic growth goes into the pockets of the capitalists. Also in south Korea ,which is most perverse and crazy place , money from south Korean taxpayers is paid to the US Army for so upkeep expenses  so that economic growth in south Korea not only benefits local and international capitalists but also the US imperialist occupation army . Visiting the DPRK over a five year period from 2012 to 2017 I have witnessed whole new streets ,which are in effect the size of small towns, such as Changjon Street, Mirae Scientists Street and Ryomyong Street being constturcted and completed. In the DPRK people's real wages are augmented by stuff like free housing as well as free medical care etc.
 So bascially even figures from the south Korean puppets and the capialist media prove what we in the Association for the Study of Songun Politics , Juche Idea Study Group of England and UK Korean Friendship Association have known for a very long time : that the Juche-based independnet national economy is superior . Juche-based economics work and deliver a high growth rate.

KCNA Commentary Urges Japan to Stop Sophism against DPRK

Pyongyang, July 21 (KCNA) -- Officials of the Japan Foreign Ministry have gone impudent here and there.
Vice Foreign Minister Kiyoshi Otawara flew to Nepal where he let out sophism about "abduction plan" of the DPRK. Calling for control over the travel of north Korean citizens", he solicited for cooperation for isolating and stifling the DPRK including suspension of all exchanges with the DPRK.
Foreign Minister Kishida when meeting the UN secretary general in New York on July 18 requested prompt stronger "sanctions" against the DPRK, saying "north Korea has become threat of higher level. Now is time to tighten pressure".
This is a clear revelation of the anti-DPRK confrontation frenzy of the Japanese reactionaries steeped in hostility toward the DPRK to the marrow of their bones.
Japan is not entitled to say anything about the Korean people.
Still remaining as unhealed scar in the minds of our people are all kinds of shame and contempt they met at the hands of Japan.
During their colonial rule, the Japanese imperialists brutally killed one million innocent Korean people and forcibly drafted 8.4 million young and middle-aged men to force them into hard work. They also abducted 200 000 Korean women, reducing them to sexual playthings of the Imperial Japanese Army. This was an intolerable insult to the nation.
In recent years, disclosures were made that the Japanese anti-DPRK organizations and figures made their way to DPRK-China border areas under the guise of "humanitarianism" and abducted a number of DPRK citizens to Japan by employing appeasement, deception and all other crafty and despicable methods.
Such a country is making a fuss over "threat of abduction", not content with faulting the measure for self-defence of the DPRK. The reason is because they committed huge crimes against the Korean people.
It is quite natural that crime-woven Japan has jitters in the face of the tremendous might and the strategic position of the DPRK which towered as a nuclear power in the East and a world-level rocket power.
The Japanese always suffering from extreme uneasiness and horror let out a story of "threat" day and night, getting surprised by a rustling sound.
Crimes are bound to bring punishment.
Japan's frantic act of sanctions and pressure by following in the footsteps of the U.S. will be a suicidal act of stepping into the striking range itself.
The DPRK keeps tabs on all the crimes committed by Japan and strongly warned that should Japan come out hostile toward the DPRK without facing up to the situation, it will face the strike by powerful ballistic rockets of the DPRK.
Japan had better keep its mouth shut if it wants to maintain even the desolate islands in the Pacific. -

KCNA Commentary on Germany's Double-faced Behavior on Security Issue

Pyongyang, July 21 (KCNA) -- Recently the Bundestag of Germany examined the issue of possessing nuclear deterrence common to Europe and came to conclusion that it was possible from a legal point of view, according to reports.
The Polish online magazine W Prost quoted a U.S. media report on July 6, saying that the Bundestag of Germany examined the issue of European countries of jointly possessing nuclear deterrence by the way of hiring out the nukes of France or UK, nuclear weapons states in Europe, and concluded that it is lawful and practically possible when adopting a relevant law.
If this is true, Germany recognizes, though belatedly, that security of Europe should be protected by Europe itself and the fullest guarantee for security is to possess nuclear deterrence.
European countries, most of them being member nations of NATO, largely depend on the U.S. in defence and security fields.
These days conflict between EU and the U.S. is aggravating after the Trump administration demanded increased expense for defence of NATO members and EU security policy is changing.
The European Commission president said in a lecture on June 9 that defense of Europe should not depend on others, expressing the intention to strengthen its own capabilities for defense. The European Commission announced on June 7 that it launched a European Defense Fund.
EU member nations decided to jointly import transport planes, submarines and combat and technical equipment and agreed to form a smaller air transport unit and they are busy with the moves to boost their own military capabilities.
The Bundestag of Germany's measure of examining the bill shows the strategic calculation to achieve the fullest security guarantee with nuclear deterrence of Europe, not "nuclear umbrella" of the U.S., for fear of the U.S. uncertain commitment to defense of Europe.
In fact, media and former and incumbent high ranking politicians of Germany discuss on the nuclear deterrence and this is the unprecedented act showing its big interests and concerns about the security.
What matters is that Germany, which is greatly interested in its own security, often slanders the DPRK, turning blind eyes to the inevitability of its access to nukes and bolstering up its nuclear force.
The DPRK's access to nukes and bolstered nuclear force is to defend sovereignty and vital rights of the country and regional peace and security from the evermore escalating nuclear threats of the U.S. which have lasted for several decades. This is very clear to everyone.
Nevertheless, politicians of Germany fault the nuclear deterrence of the DPRK whenever a chance is given to them. It is the wicked and black-hearted idea that they have nothing to do with other's security issue.
If Germany is interested in the global peace and security, it should not fault other's nuclear deterrence but urge the U.S. to give up its hostile policy and nuclear threats to the DPRK. -0-

ASSPUK, JISGE, UK KFA and BSCPRKP slam the latest anti-DPRK 'human rights' offensive

21st of July Juche 106(2017)
The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK (ASSPUK) , the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE), the UK Korean Friendship Association (UK KFA )  , and the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification in Korea (BSCPRKP) issued a joint statement slamming the anti-DPRK human rights campaign :
  Recently the so-called "Citizens' Alliance for North Korean Human Rights" an anti-DPRK conspiratorial organisation based in the south Korean puppet capital Seoul has kicked up a big noise even going as far as to try and interfere in  2017 International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) Challenge Pyongyang Open in August.
  As the  Korea Association for Human Rights Studies of the DPRK pointed out that ' If the "Citizens' Alliance for North Korean Human Rights" is to be a proper organization, it should first rename itself "Citizens' Alliance for South Korean Human Rights" and pick quarrel with the ongoing violations of human rights in south Korea, including discrimination and sexual abuse against foreign workers. In particular, it should remedy the practices of sexual harassment of local women by south Korean diplomats in several countries which have been recently exposed one after another, causing world-wide consternation and resentment'
 As such as "Citizens' Alliance for North Korean Human Rights"  is nothing but a bad joke because it is south Korea that is the worst human rights abuser in the world where the draconian fascist ' National Security Law' is in force.
    Worse still the "Special Rapporteur" of the UN Human Rights Council on the situation of human rights in the DPRK is reported to visit south Korea from July 17 to 21 to meet with south Korean government officials and "defectors" to collect latest "information" on human rights situation of the DPRK, and submit a report thereon to the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly in coming October. Again a report on human rights in the DPRK is being prepared without actually visiting the
DPRK and meeting DPRK citizens. Instead so-called 'defectors' and the south Korean puppets will be allowed to be the sole voice on DPRK human rights . This alone illustrates the partisan and biased nature of the UN Human Rights Council.As the  Korea Association for Human Rights Studies of the DPRK says ' The "Special Rapporteur" on the situation of human rights in the DPRK should not go about looking for the "testimonies" of "defectors" whose truth is no longer recognized by the world public. Instead, he should make a thorough investigation into the human rights violations in south Korea, the worst tundra of human rights in the world, and bring to justice those criminals who lured and kidnapped a group of female citizens of the DPRK to detain them in south Korea for over one year. -"
  It is time for the bogus and malicious campaign over 'DPRK Human Rights' is dropped and put into the dustbin of history.,

The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK (ASSPUK) , the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE), the UK Korean Friendship Association (UK KFA )  , and the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification in Korea (BSCPRKP) today issued a joint statement in support of the statement of the  Consultative Council for National Reconciliation (CCNR)of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea(DPRK) which was issued on the 20th of July:
  The south Korean puppets have been rocked by the massive scandals around Park Geun Hye and  Choe Sun Sil as well as case of the Intelligence Service's interference in the politics. irregularities in the field of war industry and others such as the scandals around Samsung . Now many documents have come to light sparking massive anger amongst the south Korean people.
   The DPRK CCNR have rightly denounced the Park Geun Hye regime as '  the most despicable rubbish regime in history, malignant tumour and stinky hot-bed of corruption as it committed thrice-cursed crimes against the south Koreans and the whole nation' . This is indeed true , a most accurate description of the reactionary ,decadent and putrid Park Geun Hye fascist puppet regime.
  The legacy of the Park fascist regime should be wiped out completely and no attempt should be made to block the reinvestigation into it.
 We support the struggle of the south Korean people to finally eliminate any trace of the Park fascist regime.

Anti-DPRK "Human Rights" Campaign Criticized

Pyongyang, July 21 (KCNA) -- A spokesperson of the Korea Association for Human Rights Studies gave the following answer to question raised by KCNA on Friday as regards the fact that the riff-raff are now resorting to "human rights" campaign against the DPRK:

Recently, the deputy director of the "Citizens' Alliance for North Korean Human Rights", an anti-DPRK "human rights" conspiracy organization in Seoul of south Korea, made reference to the invitation extended to foreign advertising agencies to the 2017 International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) Challenge Pyongyang Open in August. He prattled that they opposed the activities of the advertising agencies in north Korea as the income generated from the advertising could end up in the hands of the north Korean government which is under a tough sanctions regime.

Meanwhile, the "Special Rapporteur" of the UN Human Rights Council on the situation of human rights in the DPRK is reported to visit south Korea from July 17 to 21 to meet with south Korean government officials and "defectors" to collect latest "information" on human rights situation of the DPRK, and submit a report thereon to the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly in coming October.

It is an international practice to conduct advertising through such authoritative sports events as the Table-Tennis Open organized by the ITTF in Pyongyang and, for this purpose, commercial contracts are concluded between the organizers and advertising agencies. It is a well-known fact that its income is used for the development of sports.

Nevertheless, such conspiracy organization as the "Citizens' Alliance for North Korean Human Rights" is taking issue with the income from advertising, linking it with inhumane sanctions against the DPRK. While this is a presumptuous act, it also clearly shows that they are pursuing ulterior political purposes.

If the "Citizens' Alliance for North Korean Human Rights" is to be a proper organization, it should first rename itself "Citizens' Alliance for South Korean Human Rights" and pick quarrel with the ongoing violations of human rights in south Korea, including discrimination and sexual abuse against foreign workers. In particular, it should remedy the practices of sexual harassment of local women by south Korean diplomats in several countries which have been recently exposed one after another, causing world-wide consternation and resentment.

We remain consistent in our position to categorically reject the anti-DPRK "human rights resolution" cooked up by the hostile forces on the basis of false "testimonies" of the human scum "defectors" and the "Special Rapporteur" on the situation of human rights in the DPRK appointed in accordance with the "resolution".

However, from the standpoint of actively engaging in dialogue and cooperation for the genuine protection and promotion of human rights, we invited in May last the Special Rapporteur of the UN Human Rights Council on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and discussed the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in all sincerity. We will also participate in the sessions for consideration of the reports on implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women in coming September and November respectively.

The "Special Rapporteur" on the situation of human rights in the DPRK should not go about looking for the "testimonies" of "defectors" whose truth is no longer recognized by the world public. Instead, he should make a thorough investigation into the human rights violations in south Korea, the worst tundra of human rights in the world, and bring to justice those criminals who lured and kidnapped a group of female citizens of the DPRK to detain them in south Korea for over one year. -0-

S. Korean Conservative Group Denounced for Challenging Public Mindset

Pyongyang, July 20 (KCNA) -- Now under way in full scale in south Korea is comprehensive re-investigation into the Park Geun Hye and Choe Sun Sil scandal, case of the Intelligence Service's interference in the politics. irregularities in the field of war industry and others committed by the Park regime amid mounting public demand for sternly punishing the main culprits and accomplices by revealing all their crimes.

Against this backdrop, thousand and hundreds of documents exposing all sorts of crimes committed by the Park Geun Hye group was revealed at Chongwadae, stirring up a great furor in the society of south Korea.

A spokesman for the Consultative Council for National Reconciliation in a statement Thursday denounced the Park Geun Hye regime as the most despicable rubbish regime in history, malignant tumor and stinky hot-bed of corruption as it committed thrice-cursed crimes against the south Koreans and the whole nation.

This notwithstanding, the conservative group of traitors is going on the rampage, faulting investigation into crimes with such rhetoric as "political retaliation", and "legal counteraction". This is an intolerable mockery and challenge to the candlelight demonstrators, the spokesman said, and went on:

Unless the conservative group of making last-ditch efforts to get rid of abyss of ruin is wiped out mercilessly, it will be impossible to check the repetition of the worst disgrace and misfortune as what was suffered under the Park Geun Hye rule and the dark era of misfortune. This is a serious warning made by history and reality.

The conservatives group is a refuse of history and what awaits it is miserable end meted out by the public mindset.

The more desperately the puppet conservative group tries to get rid of the noose of final punishment while going against the trend of the times, the more glaringly it will reveal its sordid nature and the greater derision and aversion it will meet at home and abroad. -0-

GLORY TO THE 64TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE KOREAN PEOPLE'S VICTORY IN THE GREAT FATHERLAND LIBERATION WAR AGAINST US IMPERIALISM !

                                            

ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF SONGUN POLITICS UK

http://www.uk-songun.com/index.php email juche007@yahoo.co.uk
          
              20th of July Juche 106(2017)
The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK (ASSPUK) , the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE), the UK Korean Friendship Association (UK KFA )  , the UK Preparatory Committee for the 2017 Gathering for Praising the great persons of Mt Paektu and the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification in Korea (BSCPRKP) issued a joint statement on the 64th anniversary of the victory of the Korean people , led by the great leader Generalissimo Kim Il Sung , in the great Fatherland Liberation War against the US imperialists;
    July 27th is the second day of liberation for the Korean people .As they say July follows June  meaning that although the US imperialists started the war in June 1950 , they  admitted their defeat in July 1953.It is an inspiration not only for the Korean people but for Juche idea followers, Songun idea followers and anti-imperialist fighters the world over so July 27th is celebrated across the globe from Bogotá to Belfast !
  Dear respected Chairman Kim Jong Un said "Our July 27 is the second Day of Liberation when our people defended with honour their country's dignity and sovereignty from the brigandish aggression by the U.S. imperialists, and also the day of proud victors that put the U.S. imperialists, who were recklessly attempting to gain hegemony in the world and enslave it, on a downhill march towards ruin."
                                         

  The heroic and glorious KPA commanded by the great leader Marshal Kim Il Sung tore the guts out of US imperialism.The US imperialists lost over : 1,567,128 men including 405,498 US soldiers, 1,130,965 south Korean puppet troops, and 30,665 soldiers of their satellite states were killed, wounded or captured; 12,224 airplanes includ­ing "air fortress B-29" were downed, damaged or captured, 7,695 guns, 3,255 233 tanks and armoured cars were lost; and 564 warships and vessels including the heavy cruiser Baltimore and the flagship of the Seventh Fleet Missouri were sunk or damaged. The loss suffered by the US imperialists was nearly 2.3 times greater than what they had suffered in the four years of the Pacific War during World War II. Even official US statistics showed during each of the three years of the Korean war they lost double the troops for each year of the Vietnam war.
    US general Mark Clark lamented mournfully that he was the first US commander to conclude an armistice without a victory .
   The Fatherland Liberation War of the Korean people was an unequal battle as the US imperialists threw in huge armed forces plus the troops of 15 of their satellite countries as well the Japanese militarists not too mention the south Korean puppets. The US imperialists used barbaric methods of warfare exceeding those of the Hitlerlite Nazis. They used germ and chemical warfare and carried out horrendous massacres. All these failed to subdue the Korean people who under the wise leadership of the great revolutionary leader Marshal Kim Il Sung achieved a great victory. The forces of the heroic KPA defeated the so called "Invincible US 24th Division", taking its commander General Dean prisoner. Dean was the first US general to be captured by an opposing side. The KPA turned Height 1211 into a hill of heartbreak for the US imperialist aggressors.
   The KPA and Korean people fought in the revolutionary spirit of self- reliance based on the Juche Idea.The great revolutionary leader Marshal Kim Il Sung stated“We must solve our problems no matter who is helping us and what help we get......Victory must be won by our strength” " It was their efforts that were primary in defeating the US imperialist aggressors.
   In the Fatherland Liberation War commanded by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung ,the reactionary bourgeois military theory was smashed by the Juche- orientated revolutionary military strategy and theory. Generalissimo Kim Il Sung continually stressed that the outcome of war is not determined by weapons or technology but by those who wield the weapons. The Fatherland Liberation War was a burning crucible of Songun. The victory of the Korean people led by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung shattered  revisionist and pacifist theories about peaceful co-existence and 'non-violence'
 The Korean People's Army commanded by the great leader generalissimo Kim Il Sung was a true people's army, an army of justice and liberation. It assisted  the people . A strong spirit of Army-People unity prevailed throughout  society. Summing up the significance of the victory in the Fatherland Liberation War. The great revolutionary leader Marshal  Kim Il Sung said
"In this great struggle our people fought determinedly as one in mind under the correct leadership of the party and government and thereby withstood the harsh trials of war honourably and won a historic victory inflicting an ignominious defeat on US imperialism and its running dogs"
The great leader comrade Kim Jong Il said
 "It was a great revolutionary war of worldwide significance, a war in which our people defended their motherland and inflicted the first-ever defeat on US imperialism, the ringleader of world imperialism, by waging a national, heroic struggle."
 Dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un said that the victory in the Fatherland Liberation War " was a military miracle unprecedented in the war history of mankind and a great feat of historical significance never seen before in the nation's history spanning 5 000 years."
       The Fatherland Liberation War ended in victory due to the Juche orientated military tactics, Juche-orientated military thought and Songun revolutionary leadership of the great leader supreme commander generalissimo Kim Il Sung and the sublime heroism of the KPA. The myth of US invincibility was smashed to smithereens in the Fatherland Liberation War.  The victory in the Fatherland Liberation War inspired national liberation and revolutionary movements all over the world to struggle against the colonial system of the US-led imperialists bringing about an era of decline for  US imperialism  an era of anti -imperialism . US imperialism's defeat in Korea preceded its defeat in Vietnam and elsewhere. The Korean people's victory in the Fatherland liberation war was a great contribution to the world revolutionary movement as it showed that US imperialism could be stopped in its tracks and beaten.                    
   Glory to the Korean people and the KPA on the occasion of the 64th anniversary of the victory in the great Fatherland Liberation War against the US imperialists. We are convinced that led by dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un, another ever victorious brilliant commander of Mt Paektu, there will be a 2nd and a 3rd July27th and the Korean people will win final victory ,reunifying the country !Glory to the ever-victorious Korean people!
US OUT OF KOREA !

Today ,the 20th of July ,is the 67th anniversary of the liberation of Taejon by the Korean People's Army(KPA) under the command of the great leader generalissimo KIM IL SUNG. It was in this battle that the troops of the Korean Peoples Army smashed the so-called 'invincible' US Army 24th division  which had been regarded as one of the most advanced divisions of the US army and had been victorious in battles against Japanese forces during the second world .
The KPA encircled the US imperialist forces unique Juche-based adroit tactics worked out by the great leader generalissimo KIM IL SUNG who had accumulated great experience in the 15 year long armed struggle against Japanese imperialism !
 General William F  Dean the  commander of the 24th division  was taken prisoner by a young KPA soldier. Dean's general's stars are still in the DPRK Fatherland Liberation War Museum. Thus the US 24th Division tasted a bitter defeat, in fact disaster at Taejon.
 During this period of the Fatherland Liberation War the KPA fought solely on its own without outside assistance.
 It was a victory for the revolutionary Juche-orientated military tactics  and the Songun-based revolutionary military leadership of the great leader generalissimo KIM IL SUNG.

The root cause of disaster



On July 11, the US 8th Army Command in south Korea was transferred from Yongsan of Seoul into Pyeongtaek of Gyonggi Province.
Great irony is that the south Korean authorities arranged an "opening ceremony of new building", describing the transfer of the US 8th Army Command to the central area of south Korea as a big event.
The commander of the 8th Army advertised that the US base in Pyeongtaek is the biggest overseas US military base in the world and praised the south Korean lackeys, terming the move an "event demonstrating the solid south Korea-US alliance".
Frightened by the terrible strike of long-range artillery of the Korean People's Army massively deployed along the Military Demarcation Line, the US chose the best way to move its forces in south Korea to the areas south of the River Han.
The US calculates that its choice of Pyeongtaek in the coastal area as a new base of the US forces in south Korea is good to massively deploy armed forces through it in contingency and rapidly evacuate it when the situation turns unfavorable.
The transfer of the US military base is a vicious challenge to the desire of all Koreans to live in harmony in a reunified country as it was motivated by the US troops’ scenario for permanent presence in south Korea.
                                               

The US military base, the root cause of disaster of the south Korean people, should not be transferred but removed.
Only misfortunes and sufferings have been inflicted upon the south Koreans who had lost their residential sites handed down through generations.
The south Korean people are waging a vigorous anti-US struggle to withdraw the US forces in south Korea, the root cause of misfortunes and sufferings, a disturber of peace and security of the Korean Peninsula and a chieftain hindering the process of national reunification.

10 SHOCKING Events in North Korea [English]

Hands Off People's Korea !


KCNA Commentary Denounces Last-ditch Efforts of Remnants of Park Geun Hye Group

Pyongyang, July 19 (KCNA) -- Now south Korean politics is in total chaos owing to the remnants of the Park Geun Hye group.

Shortly ago, conservatives formed the "Korean Patriotic Party" representing "new rightwing political party". They insisted that they would "probe the truth behind the impeachment of Park Geun Hye and launch a signature campaign claiming acquittal of Park".

These reckless acts of the conservative remnants forsaken by the people are open challenge to the mindset of the candlelight demonstrators of south Korea and the last-ditch efforts to turn back the wheel of history.

Like the "Liberal Korea Party", "Parun Party" and "Saenuri Party", the "Korean Patriotic Party" is also the group of human scum who committed all kinds of despicable crimes under Park Geun Hye.

All the members of the group are human derelicts who faced denunciation from south Koreans by opposing impeachment of peerless witch Park, holding her as dear as their ancestral tablet and claiming her release.

As for Jo Won Jin, elected as co-representative of the party, is the best lackey of traitor Park being called as "strong pro-Park element".

When Park was ousted from Chongwadae, he held a confab at an inner room of Samsong-dong in Seoul to reverse the situation. He was a candidate from the "Saenuri Party" made by conservative gangsters, who sponsored a rally against Park's impeachment, during the "presidential election".

Co-representative of the party Ho Phyong Hwan is also the wicked conservative who took the lead in the racket to eliminate the "followers of the north" and in the confrontation with the compatriots as chairman of an ultra-right body, depending on Park Geun Hye.

The nature of the despicable party is as clear as noonday.

Different conservative parties were produced from the dirty remnants of Park, more dead than alive. Even the party appeared under the signboard of "patriotism" to make south Korean society dirty and it is inviting bitter denunciation from south Korean people.

The cesspool poisoning circumstances should be buried in time. The groups of confrontation maniacs and depraved guys challenging the mindset of candlelight demonstrators should never be allowed to revive.

No matter how desperately they may try, dreaming of retaking the power, they can never escape from the destiny to be buried in the tomb of history together with traitor Park. -0-

KCNA Commentary on Transfer of U.S. 8th Army Command in S. Korea


Pyongyang, July 18 (KCNA) -- Days ago, the U.S. and south Korean puppet army transferred the Command of the U.S. 8th Army present in south Korea to the area of Phyongthaek, Kyonggi Province, before holding an "opening ceremony of new building".

The commander of the 8th Army in his "welcoming speech" praised the south Korean lackeys, terming the move an "event demonstrating the solid south Korea-U.S. alliance". He added that the transfer of the U.S. base would improve the defense capability and combat preparedness of the U.S. forces.

The transfer, related with the attempt to perpetuate the U.S. military presence in south Korea, is a revelation of the foolish intention to save its troops only in the confrontation with the DPRK.

The goal of the U.S. Asia policy is to occupy the whole of Korea with south Korea as a stepping stone and realize the ambition for world domination.

Accordingly, the U.S. forced the Korean nation to suffer the most miserable disaster of the Korean War in the 1950s. And it has imposed upon the nation all sorts of misfortunes and sufferings for several decades.

Far from drawing a due lesson from the Korean War in which the myth of the "mightiness" of the U.S. was shattered as it misjudged its rival in the beginning, the U.S. has stationed its troops in Ryongsan of Seoul and different parts of south Korea and staged various drills of war against the DPRK.

Frightened by the tremendous might of the Korean People's Army rapidly strengthening these days, the U.S. chose the best way to move its aggressor forces bases in south Korea to the areas south of the River Han.

It is the American style way of existence to save its own destiny without caring about its face as superpower. This vividly showed what the "solid south Korea-U.S. alliance" is.

The situation of the empire declining to the downward can never change by transferring its military bases now.

It is very easy to wipe out the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces and south Korean puppet army under the very nose of us as we are all prepared to make the U.S. mainland into ashes.

It is very ridiculous for the U.S. to advertise that the U.S. base in Phyongthaek is the biggest overseas U.S. military base in the world.

The bigger target will further improve hit-rates and fire-influence.

The south Korean warmongers can never escape from the sight of the DPRK as they are hell bent on the confrontation racket devoting the worthwhile place and big taxes from the south Korean people to the U.S., which is aiming at annihilating the Korean nation.

The aggressors and provocateurs can never be safe under the sky no matter whether they are located in Ryongsan and Phyongthaek or in the U.S. mainland. -0-

Abrogate Unequal SOFA!

Abrogate Unequal SOFA!

Fifty-one years ago, the south Korean authorities concluded the humiliating and unequal "Status of Forces Agreement" (SOFA) with the US on July 9, 1966.
The SOFA is a modern slavery agreement legalizing the US forces' presence in south Korea and granting them unlimited privileges.
The agreement ignores the sovereignty of the south Korean people and protects the interests of the aggressor forces from the first article to the last one as it stipulates the issues of "criminal jurisdiction," "use of land and facilities," "tax business" and "immigration control," etc.
Under the patronage of SOFA the US troops are committing hideous crimes such as violence, plunder, murder and rape in south Korea almost every day.
Murder of Yun Gum-i, driving armored car over middle schoolgirls to death and other murders by the US troops were the cruelest and most brutal ones baffling human imagination.
However, the criminals of the US forces escaped punishment and the ruling quarters of south Korea kept mum about the incidents.
What is more serious is that the present ruling forces representing "mindset of the candlelight demonstrators" are openly revealing the pro-US servile attitude, calling for strengthening the "alliance" with the US.
The south Korean people are accelerating the action to annul the humiliating and unequal SOFA.
If the US troops are stationed in the vicinity of Cheonan city of South Chungcheong Province, the residents would be seized with apprehension such as murder, noise and environmental pollution, a civic organization in Cheonan city noted in June last and criticized the municipal authorities for wasting taxes extracted from the people with illusion about the US army.
  
Some days ago, civic bodies held memorial services on the lapse of 15 years since the two girls were killed by a US military vehicle at which they called for the people to turn out in the campaign to nullify the humiliating SOFA. 
The humiliating and unequal south Korea-US "Status of Forces Agreement", a disgrace to the nation, should be abolished.
