Statement of the International Central Committee for Songun Study on Foal Eagle and Key Resolve

                                     23rd of March Juche 107 (2018)

The US imperialists have now announced that the provocative and aggressive Foal Eagle and Key Resolve war exercises targeting the DPRK are going ahead from the 1st of April despite the relaxation of tensions on the Korean peninsula
  The DPRK has repeatedly condemned Foal Eagle and Key Resolve and asked for their discontinuation even offering to suspend nuclear and missile tests if the US agree to halt Foal Eagle and Key Resolve.
    Foal Eagle and Key Resolve are neither  "defensive " nor 'routine' as claimed . They include detailed plans for the rehearsal and invasion of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea of Korea. It is a nonsensical sophistry to assert that as they are "routine " so do not pose a threat. The analogy can be used of a fire drill in an office building or factory , these are not held for the sake of "routine" but as a practice for the real thing . It is the same with "Foal Eagle " and "Key Resolve.
   The US imperialists should not be holding military exercises on Korean soil many miles from its homeland . It is a grave violation of the sovereignty of the Korean nation.
   Foal Eagle and Key Resolve exercises aim at invading the DPRK and occupying it . They are aimed at destroying the socialist system of the DPRK . They are a grave challenge to the independence and sovereignty of the DPRK . Also Foal Eagle and Key Resolve  are a serious threat to peace in the Asia Pacific region .
   We call for the immediate cancellation of Foal Eagle and Key Resolve and the unconditional withdrawal of US troops from Korea . Moreover the world progressive and revolutionary people should unfold a strenuous campaign  against Foal Eagle and Key Resolve and for the withdrawal of US forces from south Korea  . Foal and Key Resolve must not go ahead

Incessant Candlelight Resistance

Incessant Candlelight Resistance  

It has been one year since Park Geun-hye was impeached.
On March 9, the People's Emergency Action for the Resignation of Park Geun-hye Regime held a news conference in front of the Sejeong Cultural Hall to declare continuous candlelight resistance for radical eradication of evils and social reform.
The April 16 Consultative Council of Families of Victims and the April 16 Solidarity held a rally at Gwanghwamun plaza in Seoul on March 10 on the lapse of one year of Park’s impeachment and four years of the Ferry Sewol disaster.
Four years have passed since the Ferry Sewol disaster, however, the cause of ferry sinking, media’s false report of “rescue of all people”, obstruction to activity and forced dismantlement of the ad hoc investigation committee for Ferry Sewol have not yet been proven, speakers said and stressed that Park is blame for it.
Murder is the greatest crime and Park should be hanged without delay not be condemned to thirty years imprisonment, they spoke with fervor.

 The bereaved families of Ferry Sewol and members of civic bodies chanted slogans “thorough investigation” and “punishment of those responsible for it”. They expressed their will to wrest all prices of the crimes committed by Park.
Now the south Koreans are launching a vigorous action to punish the conservative force which runs counter to the trend of the times, defames the spirit of the candlelight actions and tries to get out of bottomless predicament.

Popular Uprising on Jeju Island

Pyongyang, March 21 (KCNA) -- It was on April 3, 1948, 70 years ago, that a popular armed uprising was launched on Jeju Island of south Korea to oppose the "May 10 separate elections" by the U.S. imperialists and the Syngman Rhee puppet clique.

Jeju islanders turned out in the uprising at the signal of a torch on Mt Halla at 02:00 that day and bravely struggled against the U.S. imperialists and the Syngman Rhee puppet clique, shouting such slogans as "Resolute opposition to the separate elections and separate government" and "Long live national reunification!"

Much upset by this, the U.S. imperialists and their stooges scorched 295 villages or more than half of the island and cruelly killed at least 70 000 innocent people by mobilizing huge forces in a repressive operation. Anyhow, the "May 10 separate elections" on Jeju Island ended in failure.

The popular uprising on Jeju Island, a righteous anti-U.S. resistance for national salvation, displayed the unanimous desire and indomitable stamina of the south Korean people to reject the interference of foreign forces and achieve the independent reunification and sovereignty of the country after its liberation. So, people from all walks of life in south Korea are still holding events in memory of the victims on the anniversary of the uprising.

But the U.S. has not yet apologized for the massacre on the island and the conservative group tries to play down the historic significance of the uprising, calling it a "rebellion by the order of the north."

This is another unpardonable crime designed to justify their thrice-cursed crime and keep it buried into oblivion of history.

The south Korean people have been subjected to untold sufferings owing to the U.S. imperialists, chieftain of national division, and the conservative traitors who have flattered and yielded to them.

The U.S. imperialist aggressor forces massacred more than one million patriots and innocent people before the Korean War after the August 15 liberation of Korea. And they mercilessly killed at least 1.24 million peaceable residents across south Korea including Rogun-ri, Yongdong County, North Chungchong Province and Sinwon-myon, Kochang County, South Kyongsang Province during the three-year Korean War.

After the war, the U.S. has backed the brutal suppression of the struggle of the south Korean people aspiring after independence, democracy and reunification such as the April 19 popular uprising and the May 18 Kwangju popular uprising and encouraged the conservative group, a group of rare-to-be-seen fascists, in the operation to suppress the uprisings.

As was recently disclosed, the conservative group hatched a plot to suppress by the force of arms even the candlelight demonstrations of the south Korean people launched to oust traitor Park Geun Hye from power.

The conservative forces of south Korea had committed shocking atrocities in a bid to strengthen their system for domination and dictatorship and engaged themselves in smear campaigns such as "total denial" and the "north wind".

But, as was disclosed in 2000 that "evidence" related to the popular uprising on Jeju Island was cooked up by the Central Intelligence Agency, the schemes and atrocities of the U.S. and conservative group have been revealed with the passage of time.

The "Liberal Korea Party" and other conservative forces are remnants of the pro-U.S. stooges who brutally massacred the people on the island while acting as servants of the U.S. imperialists and turned south Korea into a graveyard of independence and democracy and a veritable hell. They are now striving for the revival of the pro-U.S. dictatorial rule, maliciously slandering the popular uprising on Jeju Island.

The U.S. imperialists and the south Korean conservatives are a group of the worst murderers and traitors in history, who leave no stone unturned to realize their criminal purposes.

All the facts show that neither national reunification nor genuine democracy in south Korean society can be realized with the U.S. and conservative group left intact.

In order to realize the aspiration of the martyrs of Jeju Island, the cherished desire of the nation, it is necessary to reject the domination and interference of foreign forces and resolutely smash pro-U.S. traitors' sycophancy and confrontation moves against the fellow countrymen.

ASSPUk,JISGE, UK KFA and BSCPRKP condemn Foal Eagle and Key Resolve war exercises


                  London 21st  of March  Juche 107(2018)
 The Association for the Study of Songun Politics(ASSPUK) , Juche Idea Study Group of England (JISGE), the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA) and British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification on the Korean Peninsula (BSCPRKP) issued a statement today  condemning the Foal Eagle and Key Resolve joint military exercises to be held by the US
and south Korea on the Korean peninsula;
 Despite the thawing atmosphere on the Korean peninsula which included high level talks between the DPRK Supreme leader respected Marshal KIM JONG UN  and the envoys of the south Korean
president , the US and south Korean authorities have decided to hold Foal Eagle and Key Resolve
military exercises  from the 1st of April " on a similar scale to previous years "
  These exercises are an unwarranted challenge to the developing peace process on the Korean
peninsula.Included  in the exercises are landing craft operations. Clearly this is a rehearsal to invade People's Korea and destroy its socialist system .
  This kind of warmongering by the US imperialists are undermining the chances of the peace
on the Korean peninsula . It could result in tensions increasing to the point of near war again.
  We call for Foal Eagle and Key Resolve to be cancelled forthwith  !


The Stoke On Trent Branch of the Juche Idea Study Group of Britain extends its warmest greetings to the Board of Directors and to the Secretariat of the International Institute of the Juche Idea,  and to all Juche Idea advocates throughout the world. April 9th marks the date, forty years ago, when the study and dissemination of the Juche Idea became systematized in the form of the International Institute of the Juche Idea, based in Tokyo, Japan.

Since the late 1960s, the Juche Idea has been studied and promoted, beginning with the formation of the Group For The Study of the Works of Comrade Kim IL Sung in Mali. The study of the Juche Idea was being taken up by various strata of progressive people in Asia, Africa, Latin America and Europe, so the demand for an international coordinating centre became an urgent necessity. It was decided unanimously at the International Juche Idea Seminar held in Antananarivo, Madagascar in September 1976 to establish a global academic research institute in order to organise the work for the study, dissemination and application of the Juche philosophy. Due to the energetic activities of the famous Japanese scholar Kaoru Yasui and other Juche idea adherents, the International Institute of the Juche Idea was formed in Tokyo, Japan on April 9th, 1978. The Inagurual Declaration of the IIJI entitled "The Juche Idea - The Sacred Banner of the Age of Independence" adopted by the founding congress of the organisation. The IIJI's first declaration proclaimed to the world that the flame of Juche was spreading globally and the International Institute of the Juche Idea would do it's utmost to propagate the Juche Idea to the progressive peoples.

Over the past 40 years, the International Institute of the Juche Idea has conducted vigorous and varied activities in its mission to study and disseminate the Juche Idea. Scientific seminars on the Juche Idea are regularly held on an international and regional scale, including the World Juche Idea Congress in April 2012. Representatives from our local branch and from our National Organisation, have had the privilege of participating in the International Juche Idea seminars organised by the IIJI and exchanging experiences with our fellow Juche Idea researchers from different countries. The publication of "Study Of The Juche Idea". "Hakuho pocketbooks" and the website by the IIJI have increased the accessibility of the Juche Idea to the international community. Our branch will always venerate the memory of the IIJI's late Director-General  Doctor Vishwanath and appreciates the efforts of Ogami Kenichi, Jose Francisco Aguliar Bulgarelli, Harish Gupta, Edmond Jove, and other IIJI Directors.

The thirst for a new progressive ideology reflecting the requirements of the 21st century is needed by the peoples who desire peace, independence and social justice. Answering this challenge, the Juche Idea provides a route map and guide for the goals of national and social liberation to be realised. The works of Kim IL Sung, of Kim Jong IL and of Kim Jong Un provide an encyclopaedia of theories and thoughts showing the path to genuine human emancipation. The Stoke On Trent Branch of the Juche Idea Study Group hopes that the work of the International Institute of the Juche Idea gains further success in its vital activities and wishes for closer cooperation between the IIJI and the Juche Idea Study Group of Britain. We call upon the all progressive political activists, academics and students in Britain to take up the study of the Juche Idea and to disseminate it far and wide, and to work with the IIJI for the common objective of global independence!

Statement of the Juche Idea Study Group of England on the 40th anniversary of the foundation of the International Institute of the Juche Idea


 London 21st of March Juche 107(2018)

The Juche Idea Study Group of England (JISGE) today issued a statement on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the foundation of the International Institute of the Juche Idea on the 9th of April.
  Following the international seminars on the Juche Idea that were held in September 1976 in
Antananarivo in the Democratic Republic of Madagascar and the historic international seminar on
the Juche Idea and in Pyongyang in September 1977 a decision was taken to establish an international co-ordination and guidance body for the study and dissemination of the Juche . The Pyongyang
international seminar  on the Juche Idea in 1977 was attended by 89 delegations from 73 countries, a fact that reflected the growing attraction and significance of the Juche idea . The seminar declared that "ours is a new era of history , the era of independence , in which the people, once oppressed and humiliated have emerged as masters of the world and are hewing out their destinies independently and creatively " . The seminar adopted a declaration calling for the formation of an international
body for the study and dissemination of the Juche Idea . Thus in April in 1978 the International Institute of the Juche Idea(IIJI), with its headquarters in Tokyo , was founded amidst great acclaim. Veteran Juche Idea followers such as  Kaoru Yasui and Genaro Carnero Checa played a big role
in the foundation as did the Indian public figure Dr Vishwanath .
    The foundation of the IIJI fully reflected the fact that the Juche Idea had spread beyond the borders of Korea and had taken root in many countries of the world . The first Juche Idea study group was
formed in Mali, Africa in 1969 and Juche Idea Study Groups were formed in many countries of the world. Delegation after delegation visited Pyongyang . Revolutionaries in many countries earnestly sought the writings of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung .
  Without a doubt the IIJI has played the vanguard role in the study and dissemination of the Juche Idea . Figures of the IIJI such as the late director general Dr Vishwanath and secretary general
Ogami Kenichi have worked tirelessly to promote the Juche idea. The IIJI has organised world Congresses on the Juche Idea , International and regional seminars involving many people including leading academic and political figures.
 Our Juche Idea Study Group of England has participated in the events held by the International
Institute of the Juche Idea . We participated in the World Congress for Anti-imperialism and independence held in Caracas, Venezuela in 2005  and a delegation of the Juche Idea Study Group
of England was greatly honoured to participate in the World Congress of the Juche Idea in April 2012 and speak at it . We also participated in European Regional Seminars on the Juche Idea in 2003,
2014 and 2017.
   We always remember the teaching of Dr Vishwanath the late director general of the IIJI " study the
Juche Idea , it costs you nothing but will pay in plenty " .
  The Juche Idea Study Group of England salutes the IIJI on the 40th anniversary of its foundation
and wishes it every success for the future.

KCNA Blasts Dishonest Forces' Distortion of Truth

Pyongyang, March 20 (KCNA) -- The Korean Central News Agency issued a commentary titled "Truth Must Not Be Distorted with Sheer Sophism" on Tuesday.

The commentary noted that thanks to the proactive measure and peace-loving proposal made by the DPRK, dramatic atmosphere for reconciliation has been created in relations between the north and the south of Korea and there has been a sign of change also in the DPRK-U.S. relations.

At this time, the dishonest forces in the U.S. and Japan and the conservative group of south Korea are peddling groundless stories distorting the truth in a bid to mislead public opinion, the commentary said, citing facts.

It went on:

Incumbent and former officials and experts of the U.S. have become vocal, claiming that "north Korea took a change-about attitude even though the U.S. did not make any concession", "Trump's high-intensity sanctions and pressure strategy proves effective" and "it is a sign that north Korea has reached a limit beyond which it can no longer sustain itself", in an attempt to meet their own interests.

The Abe group, which is left alone as a result of the unexpected sudden change in the situation of the Korean peninsula, claims that "north Korea's dialogue and peace offensive is a result of the sustained pressure put by the international community" and "hasty dialogue would mean being taken in by north Korea's strategy of gaining time" and that "sanctions should never be slackened under any circumstances".

In the meantime, the conservatives of south Korea including the "Liberal Korea Party", conservative media and self-professed experts are reeling off invective that "it is a trite method for the north to opt for dialogue whenever it finds itself in a fix", "it is camouflaged peace offensive" and "it is aimed to make a crack in south Korea-U.S. alliance and to seek lift of sanctions".

The great change in the north-south relations is not an accidental one but a noble fruition made thanks to the DPRK's proactive measure, warm compatriotism and will for defending peace. Such an event as today could be possible as the DPRK's dignity has remarkably risen and it has strong might.

Such rubbish as "result of sanctions and pressure" and sort of "limit" spread by the hostile forces is just as meaningless as a dog barking at the moon.

The economy of the DPRK is rising, not sitting down as claimed by the riff-raffs, and is being put on a Juche and modern basis. Sci-tech achievements and models have been created in different parts of the country, promising the bright future for the improvement of the people's living standard.

It is by no means accidental that the public at home and abroad are unanimously commenting that the dialogue peace offensive of the DPRK is an expression of self-confidence as it has acquired everything it desires.

It is really an expression of small-mindedness for the riff-raffs to spoil the atmosphere and say this or that even before the parties concerned are given a chance to study the inner thoughts of the other side and are seated at a negotiating table.

We do like to remind that it is time for all to approach everything with prudence with self-control and patience.

The fault-finders have to face up to the unanimous demand of the public at home and abroad for the improvement of the north-south relations and for peace on the Korean peninsula and stop the mean act of distorting truth. -0-

44 years since abolition of taxation in People's Korea -statement by ASSPUK, JISGE , UK KFA and BSCPRKP



        London 20th March  Juche 107(2018)
           The Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK, the Juche Idea Study Group of England ,the UK Korean Friendship Association and the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification on the Korean Peninsula(BSCPRKP) today issued a statement on the 44th anniversary of the complete abolition of taxation in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea:
    43 years ago the Supreme People's Assembly of the DPRK on the 21st of March 1974 passed the law on the Complete Abolition of Taxation  thus the DPRK became the first state in the world without taxation , a truly remarkable feat. Since that day the people of the DPRK have been free from income tax and local taxation but at the same time have enjoyed free health care , free education and low cost housing . Today young and middle aged Korean people do not understand the meaning of the word "tax"  !
 After the liberation of Korea from Japan  on August 15 1945) the predatory  tax system of the Japanese imperialists was abolished and a popular and democratic tax system was established in the DPRK, thus putting an end to over 50 kinds of miscellaneous taxes and turning the taxation into a single one.
   In 1955 the government of the country again cut the income tax of the workers and office employees by 30 percent, sharply reduced the tax burden of the handicraft workers, entrepreneurs and merchants and decreased the agricultural tax in kind from 25 percent of the grain output to 20.1 percent on an average. From 1959 it reduced the agricultural tax in kind to 8.4 percent.
     The agricultural tax in kind, which had been instituted right after the liberation, was eliminated in the period from 1964 to 1966 for good in accordance with "Theses on the Socialist Rural Question in Our Country" authored by President Kim Il Sung.
    As a result there remained in the country only the income tax of the working people and the negligible local autonomy tax. The tax paid by the population amounted to two percent or less in the revenue of the state budget.   Thus abolishing taxation became the order of the day . As the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung said
" To abolish the tax system is a revolution to free the working people from these vestiges and a great change to meet the centuries-old desire of the people.
The system of taxation which came into being with the emergence of the state, has been used in a class society for thousands of years as a means of preserving the ruling machine of the governing classes and plundering the working people."
     Taxation  for centuries had been a great burden for the working people with people cursing taxation . There is an old saying that in there only only two certainties -death and taxes . In the capitalist countries  today taxation is a very big problem .  In recent years under austerity polices taxation has increased in several capitalist countries but at the same time public services have been cut . Many workers in the UK have to pay a big percentage of their pay in tax and national insurance , on top of that there is 20% VAT  and council tax which rob people of their money . Even those who own their properties are hit by "service charges ".
   Abolishing taxation in the DPRK was a master stroke which improved people's living standards . At the same time thanks to increasing socialist production  in the DPRK public spending has increased many times over. This is a miracle . The DPRK is a real paradise for the working people thanks to the Juche idea , the advanced socialist system and the people centred policies of great generalissimo's Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il which are today carried forward by dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un under the banner of Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism . The abolition of taxation in the DPRK is a great inspiration to the working people of Britain in their struggle against austerity , exploitation and oppression.

Rodong Sinmun on Anti-Imperialist Struggle

Pyongyang, March 18 (KCNA) -- The world progressive peoples should keep a firm anti-imperialist and independent stand and dynamically struggle against the imperialists to defend independence.

Rodong Sinmun Sunday says this in an article, which goes on:

The independent world is the world free from domination, subjugation, aggression and interference in which the sovereignty and equality are ensured for all the countries and nations.

If the interference and domination by foreign forces are allowed and one's destiny is not hewed out independently, one can not but become neo-colonial slave of the imperialists.

The imperialists are the biggest obstacles as they imprudently abuse the sovereignty of other countries and dignity of nations and check the struggle of the countries to build a new society.

They have ceaselessly committed military interference and aggressive acts against sovereign states in all parts of the world to satisfy their cupidity.

Aggression and domination are ineffective before the strength of the unity. That's why the imperialists have enforced the policy for division and estrangement to easily realize aggression, domination and subordination on other countries.

It is the consistent stand of the DPRK to get united and cooperate with all countries and nations aspiring after independence and loving justice, irrespective of differences in ideology and social system, with broad magnanimity and generosity.

To strengthen the international solidarity makes one take common steps in the struggle for independence against the imperialists in line with the common aspiration for independence and thus strengthen its might. -0-

KCNA Commentary Urges Japan to Face up to Trend of Times

Pyongyang, March 17 (KCNA) -- The Japanese reactionaries are desperately inciting the atmosphere for sanctions and pressure on the DPRK, much upset by the ever-changing trend of the situation.

The Japan Times on March 7 said that Japan is most embarrassed under the prevailing situation, detailing the fact that the Abe group is calling for ratcheting up the pressure on the DPRK and claiming that the sanctions are proving effective.

Their stereo-typed rhetoric about "sanctions and pressure" is nothing but rubbish ignorant of the developments.

This is just the last-ditch struggling aimed to reverse the trend of the times made by the islanders who have fished in troubled waters by aggravating the situation on the Korean peninsula.

The Japanese reactionaries have always taken the lead in executing their U.S. master's policy of "maximum pressure".

The prime minister, foreign minister and other high-ranking politicians were all set in motion to solicit cooperation for putting pressure on the DPRK in the international arena and they meddled in the affairs of others, going shameless to ruin the feast of the Korean nation.

But the racket for sanctions and pressure which was pushed forward with much effort has already gone flat.

Japan, which clamored for monitoring the "sea smuggling activities" of the DPRK, tried to inveigle other countries while calling for "sharing burden" and "sharing monitoring". But no country is responding to it.

Japan zealously called for "strong solidarity among Japan, U.S. and south Korea" and "close cooperation" as regards the DPRK issue, but it faced only serious concern over estrangement of Japan.

Still now, the Japanese reactionaries are making a shrill cry demanding "sanctions and pressure on the DPRK", indicative of their extreme uneasiness over their frustration.

The situation is making a rapid change.

Now is a high time that Japan meditated over its policy toward the DPRK, facing up to the trend of the times for itself.

We have already warned that the Japanese reactionaries may not get a ticket for Pyongyang if they go ill-natured without discretion.

It would be wise for them to stop useless struggling and follow the trend of the times, before it is too late. -0

Hotbed of All Evils

Hotbed of All Evils
Being disconcerted over the climate for improvement of inter-Korean ties thanks to proactive steps and strenuous efforts of the DPRK, the Liberty Korea Party is getting frantic in its move to persist in standoff with the same brethren, branding the south Korean authorities as “the regime irresponsible for security”.  
It made preposterous remarks such as “sink of Cheonan warship” and “bomb” when the DPRK high-level delegation visited south Korea.
When accomplices of Park Geun-hye are founded guilty and Lee Myung-bak is threatened with arrest as he embezzled funds for special activity of the National Intelligence Service, it is making a desperate bid to get out of destruction, branding the above-said facts as a “political retribution”.  
In this regard, south Korean people raise their eyebrows at the LKP impeding the eradication of evils and throwing a wet blanket over improvement of inter-Korean relations.
Some days ago, members of the Solidarity for People's Sovereignty and other organizations held a press conference in front of the office of the LKP to denounce its anti-reunification acts.
The south Korean people were greatly concerned about the Winter Olympics, however, the LKP described the Winter Olympics as “Pyongyang Olympics” and it was strong against the formation of a unified team of the south and the north of Korea, speakers noted.
The LKP, which hampers peace and reunification of the Korean Peninsula and stokes inter-Korean confrontation, should meet a stern judgment by the nation, they said and expressed their will to continue actions against the LKP.  
Availing itself of this opportunity, they called for the people to build a peaceful and a reunified country by burying the LKP, hotbed of all evils.
They chanted slogans “Stamp out the LKP!” and “Remove the LKP!”

The LKP should face a stern punishment by history as element of disturbing peace and war to be criticized by the south Korean people.

KCNA Commentary Derides Disgusting Acts of S. Korean Conservatives

Pyongyang, March 16 (KCNA) -- The "Liberal Korea Party" and other conservative group of south Korea have been greatly embarrassed to go desperate in their moves to chill the atmosphere of the Korean peninsula in which the tension has made a U-turn toward détente following the proactive measure the DPRK took on its own initiative.

Representative of the LKP Hong Jun Phyo is deriding the present phase for dialogue, saying that "one should not be taken in by the camouflaged peace offensive" and insulting it as "south-north peace farce mentioning only nuclear suspension, not nuclear dismantlement". The floor leader and the spokesman for the same party also appeared at public presentations where they spouted such rubbish that "the north's intention and sincerity are doubtful" and "the principle of sanctions on the north should never be undermined".

This is the desperate efforts of the worst traitors who are destined to meet a miserable end, after being marginalized from the trend of the history toward national reconciliation, unity, peace and reunification.

The principled stand and the sincere efforts made by the DPRK to write a new history of national reunification to be proud of to the world by the concerted efforts of the nation and to defend peace and stability on the Korean peninsula and the world have been warmly supported and welcomed by all the Koreans and the international community.

But only the LKP and other conservative forces of south Korea are working desperately to reverse the favorable climate for reconciliation, unity and peace into the unfavorable one of confrontation, and are spewing out rhetoric, challenging the desire of the nation and the trend of the times.

Far from apologizing for the hideous crimes of undermining the June 15 era of reunification which was making favorable progress and of pushing the situation to the touch-and-go one, those forces have gone vicious in their moves to check the trend for the improvement of the north-south ties. This disgusting behavior has been spitted at by all Koreans and the international community.

It was none other than the south Korean conservative forces that did not hesitate to commit the traitorous crimes against reunification, describing the valuable June 15 era of reunification as "lost decade" and totally denying the north-south joint declarations. It was again the south Korean conservatives who scuttled the north-south authorities talks that were arranged with so much effort by the active step taken by the DPRK in June 2013 by claiming the absurd issue of "level and ranking".

If the north-south relations make improvement, it is clear that their crimes of having escalated confrontation, being dead-set to the nation's reconciliation, unity and national reunification in the past, and of having created the danger of a war on the Korean peninsula will be highlighted and they will face stronger denunciation and rejection by the public mindset.

It is out of this calculation that they are working with bloodshot eyes to nip in the bud the sprouts for national reconciliation and unity with all possible means and methods in order to keep the north-south relations in the stalled state forever.

The conservative forces who stoop to any infamy to meet their dirty political ambition are senseless traitors and a group of rabid dogs that have no blood and soul of being part of the Korean nation as they are only keen on escalating confrontation with the fellow countrymen.

The south Koreans and all other Korean people are required to wage more courageous actions to throw overboard the group of conservative traitors, a cancer-like entity in the way for peace and reunification. -0-

KCNA Commentary Derides Senseless Act of Subject Nation Japan

Pyongyang, March 12 (KCNA) -- Japan is going head-long into stifling the DPRK with the backing of its master U.S.

As soon as the U.S. announced "independent sanctions" on the DPRK in February, the Japanese reactionaries have gone reckless, voicing support for them and calling for the inspection of ships of the DPRK. This is just a typical example.

The frenzy of the islanders has reached the extreme as evidenced by their call for the convocation of an international conference for the inspection of DPRK-flagged ships which even the U.S. failed to conceive.

Japan, jeered by the world for its serious dependence on the U.S. and subjugation to it in the political, economic and military fields, is trying to take the lead in the moves to bring down the DPRK. This is enough to make a cat laugh as it is just a ridiculous act of a subject state.

In the past Japan tried to meet its interests by clinging to big powers only to suffer failure. This is not an exaggeration.

It stooped to any infamy to sign an unequal treaty to entrust its destiny to the U.S. in the middle of the 19th century and in the subsequent period, it curried favor with the Western powers, turning the whole country into market for selling the Western goods and a supply source of cheap raw materials only to push its economy into a slump.

At the connivance of the empires which put Japan under their political and economic control, Japan opted for overseas expansion only to get the ill-fame of a war defeated nation and a war criminal nation, in the face of strong rebuff of the world.

Such a country is now acting a poodle of a suzerain state, far from drawing a lesson from its shameful history. No wonder, it is destined to remain as a subject state.

The aim sought by Japan in going reckless, being lost to all shames, is to realize its old dream of the "Greater East Asia Co-prosperity Sphere" at any cost. But Japan is mistaken.

Korea is not a weak nation as it used to be in the past when it was trampled under the jackboots of the Japanese imperialists.

The descendents of the Samurais are now suffering untold contempt and maltreatment such as political exclusion after being left in the cold and economic exploitation by the U.S. whom they worship.

Under such situation Japan is trying to bring down the DPRK. This is as foolish an act as trying to pick up a star in the sky with a rotten noose.

A political scholar of Japan in his 2013 book that dealt with the theory of defeat in war commented that Japan will remain as a defeated nation forever if it fails to settle two factors -- "denial of defeat" and "subjugation toward the U.S."

Japan will face greater price to pay if it goes frivolous, being oblivious of its inglorious past and being unable to feel the change in the world political landscape. -0-

A refutation of the anti-DPRK slander by Heidi Alexander MP-UK KFA

The UK Korean Friendship Association decided to write to the leader of the Labour party , Jeremy Corbyn  , and also to Heidi Alexander who is the local Member of Parliament for the area where the chairman of UK KFA lives  to seek clarification on the issue of sanctions against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea . At present the DPRK is under intense sanctions by not only the UN Security Council and the US imperialists but also the UK and EU . Recently, in parliament Margaret Hodge of the Labour Party demanded that the British government more thoroughly implement the sanctions against the DPRK , This appeared to be at variance with the apparent position of the Labour party to seek a peaceful solution to the tensions on the Korean peninsula .

 So far Mr Corbyn did not reply but a reply came back from Ms Alexander which did not actually answer the question but instead responded with a litany of anti-DPRK slander and abuse , basically recycling old worn-out lies ,namely  allegations of human rights abuse against the DPRK which came from the discredited UN Commission of Inquiry. Of course the "Commission of Inquiry " report was been refuted many times and torn apart .
        We would reply as follows
Firstly, the so-called "Commission of Inquiry "(COI) was a product of an anti-DPRK conspiracy by US and world imperialism  and a tool of US imperialism . The UN itself has degenerated into a tool of US imperialism , a sort of executive agency for the US . The so-called "Commission of Inquiry " consisted of extreme anti-DPRK, anti-communist elements and pro US elements such as  Judge Michael Kirby who had been long involved in pro US organisations and CIA linked organisations . Judge Kirby put his home in Australia on the market and it was valued at $10 million showing that Kirby is in fact a wealthy individual , part of the bourgeois ruling class and unlikely to be well disposed or sympathetic towards any socialist country . Another member of the Commission  M Darusman  was a member of the Golkar party in Indonesia which earned an ill-fame by murdering with the CIA help 500 000 communists and people linked to leftist and labour circles in 1965. He is also an adviser to the United States Indonesia Society, a U.S. government front group and a member of the Global Leadership Foundation whose patrons include such unsavory characters as George W. Bush and Lech Walesa.
  The "Commission of Inquiry " never once set foot in People's Korea , not once . It has never asked or consulted the  25 million people who actually live in the DPRK nor has it sought  the views of organisations such as the Korean Friendship Association . So basically the 'findings' of the COI were bound to be distorted and inaccurate from the start. By excluding actual DPRK citizens living in the DPRK and organisations such as KFA   the COI would actually fail an Equality and Diversity Audit massively !.The so -called  evidence is purely second-hand or third hand  and would actually be deemed invalid in a genuine court of law. The so-called "evidence " came from 'defectors ' from the DPRK  ! . These are an unrepresentative group  . constituting one about 0.1 per cent of the DPRK population (that is assuming the total number of "defectors " provided by the south Korean regime is accurate) .
  Worse still , time and time again the stories of "defectors " have been proved to be false , they have been torn apart.!  Prominent "defector "   Shin Dong Hyuk (real name Shin In Geun) admitted to lying . Celebrity defector "Yeomi Park " , had her stories pulled apart several times . It was shown that her accounts were inconsistent and contradictory . The evidence of the "defectors " would be deemed as inadmissible in a court of law , yet the CoI used it . One writer , not sympathetic to the
DPRK argued that "Cash incentives and the western media’s endless appetite for shocking stories encourage refugees to exaggerate" ("Why do North Korean defector testimonies so often fall apart?" Guardian  13 October 2015).
  Secondly, the DPRK guarantees people the right to work , the right to education , the right to health care . The DPRK Socialist Constitution  states that  " The State shall effectively guarantee the genuine democratic rights and freedoms as well as the material and cultural well-being of all its citizens. In the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea the rights and freedoms of citizens shall be amplified with the consolidation and development of the socialist system." (Article 64 ) ," Citizens enjoy equal rights in all spheres of State and public activity"(article 65),"All citizens who have reached the age of 17 have the right to elect and to be elected, irrespective of sex, race, occupation, length of residence, property status, education, party affiliation, political views or religious belief. Citizens serving in the armed forces also have the right to elect and to be elected." (article 66). This last point is interesting because in the UK , people in the armed forces and civil servants are barred from standing for parliament , so the DPRK is more democratic than the UK in this field .  Article
67 states that "Citizens are guaranteed freedom of speech, the press, assembly, demonstration and association. The State shall guarantee the conditions for the free activities of democratic political parties and social organization".
 In the DPRK elections are held every few years  but almost 100 per cent of electors vote in the
elections meaning that those elected to People's Assemblies at all levels up to the Supreme People's Assembly have  a real democratic mandate. They can also be recalled by by electors if they are not satisfied  (Article 7 of the DPRK Socialist Constitution ). It is interesting to note that Ms Alexander herself was elected by 32,000 votes out of an electorate of 68,000 , in other words less than 50 per cent of the electorate  whereas a member of the DPRK Supreme People's Assembly would be elected by nearly 100 per cent of their electors. Whose has the real mandate? Which system is the most democratic ? , we will let you judge  !
Thirdly, rather than being a human rights violator the DPRK  improves the living standards and quality of life for its citizens. Even the heavily doctored and ungenerous UN statistics show that life expectancy in the DPRK leaped by 32 years  , nearly doubling (of course this is an underestimate by
the UN , the DPRK's life expectancy was actually recorded as 74.6 years  , a 36 year increase ) . People do not pay tax and get housing virtually free of charge. In recent years there has been massive housing construction in Pyongyang .
Fourthly, visiting the DPRK many times we have seen no evidence of human rights violations . As we pointed out back in 2015
"The imperialists claim that there are hundreds of thousands of people held in camps in the DPRK , such camps would have to be massive and with a huge number of guards but I did not see such a thing in the DPRK countryside. Moreover the DPRK is very peaceful and calm you rarely see emergency vehicles rushing through the busy streets. If it what the imperialists say about "human rights " and " forced labour camps " in the DPRK was true, then you would say police or security personnel on the streets arresting many people and putting them in lorries to go to "labour camps " or "concentrations camps " but I saw no such thing happen. I did not see heavily armed police on the streets that you sometimes encounter in London , either on the streets or at railway stations or at airports . Indeed I was able to go for a walk near the Mansudae Assemby Hall the home of the DPRK Supreme People's Assembly  , the highest organ of legislative power in the DPRK and roughly equivalent to the parliament. Now in London the area around parliament is a restricted area where movement is controlled and armed police units patrol. However  in Pyongyang I see no police or security personnel in the area surrounding the Mansudae Assembly hall. Of course
the DPRK is a stable and harmonious unified society based on single hearted unity so there is no terrorism and no riots. In the DPRK there is unity between the  armed forces and civilians  so people do not fear or despise the armed forces.                              
 I did not see the police oppressing anyone on the streets . I did not see anyone get arrested or the police in the DPRK shoot anyone dead !  In the USA , the so called "land of the free "  , which is the country behind the clamour about " human rights in the DPRK , the police regularly shoot down people  most of them black. The British newspaper "The Guardian" said so far this year 944 people had been killed by police in the USA so far this  year ! . In the UK armed police units have been responsible for the loss of life notably innocent Brazilian electrician  Jean Charles De Menezes and Mark Duggan (which sparked the 2011 riots"
  In conclusion it is deeply regrettable that a time when there appears to be a lessening of tension on the Korean peninsula and the international prestige of the DPRK is soaring higher , Ms Alexander has chosen to recycle old imperialist rubbish about People's Korea.

Roar of anti-U.S. feeling

Roar of anti-U.S. feeling

Now the Korean nation and international community wish consistent détente of the Korean Peninsula and dialogue between the south and the north of Korea with the Winter Olympics as an occasion.
However, the U.S. is busy with its effort to drive the situation to the brink of a war by resuming large-scale joint military drills, saying the thawing season of inter-Korean relations would end after extinguishment of Winter Olympics torch. 
In this regard, broad segments of south Korean people vehemently criticize the move of the U.S. to destroy security and peace of the Korean Peninsula, branding it as a vicious plot to block the improvement of inter-Korean relationship.  
On March 3, an organization composed of 28 groups including the South Headquarters of the Pan-national Alliance for Korea's Reunification, the People’s Democratic Party and the movement headquarters for peace treaty held a rally to denounce the U.S. hamstringing the process of inter-Korean ties in front of the U.S. embassy in Seoul.
In order to avert a war and make a radical improvement of inter-Korean relations, the south Korean government, to begin with, should push forward inter-Korean dialogue with maintenance of national cooperation and independence, they said and continued that it should curb the U.S. intervention in the south-north relations.  
The U.S. should not poke its nose into internal affairs of the Korean nation and give up the U.S.-south Korea joint military exercises inviting the danger of a nuclear war for good, they asserted. 
They called for the people to hold a larger-scale rally against the U.S.-south Korea joint military games on April 7.
Going round the Gwanghwamun avenue and the U.S. embassy ended the rally. 
The above-said facts show that the U.S. is the author of inter-Korean confrontation, an obstacle to Korea’s reunification, wrecker of peace on the Korean Peninsula and the source of a war.

Quote from the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL on DPRK-US negotiatation


Recently we took the step of opening our territorial airspace to passenger planes from foreign countries. Having done so, we had to shoot down a US military helicopter that had intruded into our territorial airspace. The United States once again
submitted an apology to us. This was a great victory for us. We returned the pilot of the helicopter only after receiving the apology. Afterwards, the pilot said that he had not been confined to a jail or barracks but had been treated well and given good accommodation. We must entertain no illusions about US imperialism. We must not make concessions or retreat in the confrontation with the US imperialists, but set our face against them."

ASSPUK,JISGE , UK KFA and BSCPRKP on International Women's Day


                  London 8th  of March  Juche 107(2018)
  The Association for the Study of Songun Politics(ASSPUK) , Juche Idea Study Group of England (JISGE), the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA) and British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification on the Korean Peninsula (BSCPRKP)issued the following joint statement on the occasion of International Working Women's Day ;
  International Working Women' Day is celebrated throughout the globe , however it only has
real meaning in Juche Korea led by dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN . In Juche Korea women enjoy real equality .  Article 77 of the DPRK Socialist Constitution states ". Women are accorded equal social status and rights with men. The State shall afford special protection to mothers and children by providing maternity leave, reduced working hours for mothers with several children, a wide network of maternity hospitals, creches and kindergartens, and other measures. The State shall provide all conditions for women to play their full roles in society.".Other legalisation such as the
1946 Law on Sexual Equality  and the Socialist Labour Law guarantee equality for women .
  The great leader President KIM IL SUNG defined women as one of the two wheel of the revolutionary chariot , without them there can be no revolution.
  In Juche Korea prostitution was abolished in 1946,. There is no pornography , no sex industry nor
Western style 'sexual culture'  which degrade women.
  People's Korea is a model of true Juche-orientated women's liberation !

On the Issue of the recent talks between the DPRK and south Korea.-special article by Dr Dermot Hudson

The recent meeting between DPRK Supreme leader respected Marshal KIM JONG UN and the envoys sent by the south Korean chief executive are of great significance and were extremely successful.
The talks have defused tension , dashing hope of the US imperialists and neo-con reactionaries who had got excited by the idea of a war on the Korean peninsula. Certain right wing newspapers in the UK had blazing headlines "Third World War " every day . Now they are silent , cold water has been poured on the fire . The tension is melting away like snow in the spring .
The meeting came about because of the leadership of dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN . Marshal KIM JONG UN is determined to achieve Korean reunification . His stance is one of patriotism and independence . Respected Marshal KIM JONG UN has shown great skills and open minded statesman like no other leader. Despite the fact that he has been the target of vilification, abuse and slander by the south Koreans he welcomed the south Korean delegation to Pyongyang , even hosting a dinner for them .
    As a matter of fact respected Marshal KIM JONG UN should be awarded an international peace for the sterling work he has done to defuse tensions and promote peace.
Moreover the meeting came about because of the Songun policy and nuclear deterrent of the DPRK . The DPRK is able to negotiate from a position of strength, it does not pay to negotiate from a position of weakness . The British politician Nye Bevan said that one " should never go into the conference chamber naked ."Indeed one should bear in mind the old Latin maxim " Si vis pacem, para bellum  " meaning " If you want peace, prepare for war". Peace is guaranteed by the DPRK's nukes and ICBMs.
  Of course the DPRK's nuclear deterrent is purely defensive . The DPRK is committed to no first use of nuclear weapons . It has always made it clear that once the US hostile policy and nuclear threat against the DPRK is lifted , that it will talk about decnuclearisation.
Some have tried to claim that the DPRK 's position has changed but it has not. The Western media deliberately bury the fact that it was the DPRK a long time ago that proposed that the Korean peninsula should be a nuclear free zone . It was the US that introduced nuclear weapons onto the Korean peninsula in 1957 and the DPRK did not carry out its first nuclear test until 49 years later in 2006. The US had 49 years to solve the Korean nuclear issue but did not use the opportunity . Similarly hundreds of reunification proposals were put forward by the DPRK but were ignored by the south Korean side .
  It is nonsense to suggest as Trump and others do that sanctions have brought the DPRK to the negotiating table . If any sanctions hinder the inter-Korean peace process by blocking inter-Korean co-operation. Sanctions are a form of warfare and increase tension.
It is quite possible that the south Korean side have spin the story about denuclearisation simply to persuade their American masters they got something out of the DPRK . South Korea is not a free agent , it is a puppet of the US and its actions are limited by the need to have the approval of Trump for what they do. The DPRK is negotiating from a position of strength , a position of total independence whereas south Korea has to answer to the US for what it does .The DPRK is its own master ,it does not need to answer to anyone for what it does.
 If there are changes , these are in south Korea. A new regime is power , the regime of Moon Jae In which appears far more receptive to peace overtures from the DPRK that the former criminal puppet fascists Lee Myung Bak and Park Geun Hye . The Park regime was swept away by millions of "Candlelight marchers  " in south Korea who were angry at the extreme corruption of Park and her cohorts.The past far right fascist regimes in south Korea where prepared to push confrontation with the DPRK even at the cost of war and their own self destruction . However the new regime in south Korea realises that is not a good idea ,it does not want to see the destruction of south Korea . At the moment the south Korean regime is  like a tight rope walker trying to balance the demands for peace and reunification with  trying to please its American masters.If south Korea is prepare to break its dependence on the US for good and push out the US troops then permanent peace will reign and reunification will come.
   If the US troops are driven out of south Korea for good , then on the ruins of US colonial rule a new independent , powerful reunified Korea of 75 million people will rise up and display its grandeur before the world people.

U.S. Will Have to Pay Dearly for Its Military Provocation: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, March 7 (KCNA) -- The U.S. is openly pushing ahead with its preparations for igniting a war of aggression in an attempt to reverse the atmosphere of detente on the Korean peninsula.

Recently, Military Times and other U.S. media reported that the U.S. army set it as this year's primary task to increase its capability for emergency overseas dispatch of troops.

According to them, the U.S. army decided to intensively stage drills for urgent deployment for field manoeuvres by giving an order of emergency call to units in the U.S. mainland without prior notice, promptly bringing the troops and equipment to the Asia-Pacific region including the Korean peninsula and Europe within 18 hours, and submitted the relevant budget bill to Congress.

It is going to change the policy of dispatching troops overseas to ensure that veteran soldiers can be dispatched to the Korean peninsula and Europe as fast as possible from Iraq and Afghanistan.

It is also getting frantic with the deployment of U.S. troops on the Korean peninsula and their drills of getting familiar with its terrain and arms buildup there.

The U.S. marines kicked off the drill for getting ready with winter combat in the countries like Russia and Korea.

The U.S. military is pushing ahead with plan to constantly deploy company-scale MQ-1C ultra-modern drones and support forces in south Korea.

Such military moves for aggression of the U.S. which is crying for the resumption of joint military exercises with south Korea are a grave provocation aimed to deliberately deteriorate the situation of the Korean peninsula and again push it to the brink of war.

Witnessing the ill-minded behavior of the U.S. before and after the Winter Olympics, the international community has been seriously concerned about whether detente and dialogue brought about with much effort may continue even after the Olympics or not.

Such concern has become a reality.

Asserting that the "phase of thaw in frozen south-north relations" will end with the end of the Olympics, the U.S. is calling for kicking off the joint military drills. It makes no scruple of letting out such wild remarks that it cannot but enter the "second phase" if sanctions on the DPRK do not work.

The U.S. charge d'affaires ad interim in south Korea said that if there is no progress in the "denuclearization" issue, there will be no substantial improvement in south-north relations, adding that it is necessary to take a step for joint deterrence to threat from north Korea and it is available only through joint military exercises.

The U.S. revealed its colors as chief culprit of the inter-Korean confrontation, a stumbling block in the way to reunification, wrecker of peace on the Korean peninsula and source of war of aggression.

Tragedy is that the U.S. is still ignorant of the DPRK.

The U.S. ill-intention to stifle the DPRK only hardens the will of the latter to tackle it by dint of justice.

The U.S. will have to face all the disasters to be caused by its reckless racket of aggression.

It had better lend an ear to the advice of the international community that it will have to pay dearly for military action against the DPRK. -0-

Denouncing the U.S. machination

Denouncing the U.S. machination

Actions of south Koreans against the U.S. sanctions and war maneuvers against north Korea are getting stronger.
The Headquarters for the Actions against Trump and the U.S. held a press conference in Seoul on February 24 in protest against the U.S. new sanctions and moves for igniting a nuclear war against north Korea.
Speakers censured that Trump is making bellicose remarks wrecking peace on the Korean Peninsula and going to invade north Korea through war games.
The speakers at the conference slammed Trump for slapping the worst sanctions against north Korea and disturbing the peaceful reunification of the Korean Peninsula at a time when an atmosphere of peace and reunification was growing strong in the peninsula.
They stressed that the Korean nation will carry on actions until the U.S. completely stops war drills against north Korea and the U.S. troops are withdrawn from south Korea.
The Gwangju Regional Headquarters of the People's Solidarity for Sovereignty held a rally outside the U.S. military base in Gunsan on Feb. 26 to condemn the U.S. moves to hinder the improvement of inter-Korean relations and resume the war exercises against north Korea.
Speakers at the rally charged that the U.S. is putting economic and diplomatic pressure on south Korea to spoil the improved south-north relations.
Now is the time for the south Korean authorities to put an end to dependence on the U.S. and take an independent stand by the united efforts of the nation, they said and continued that the U.S. is afraid of the Korean nation’s enthusiasm for national concord.
On Feb. 27, members of the civic organizations held news conferences in denunciation of the U.S. hindering the process of inter-Korean rapprochement and unity.   
Pro-reunification and civic activists including the honorary chairman of the Association for Supporting Prisoners of Conscience of the Family Movement for Realizing Democracy, the chairman of the South Headquarters of the Pan-national Alliance for Korea's Reunification, the head of People’s Democratic Party and the director of the Society of April Revolution took part in the press conference.
They chanted slogans “Censure Trump hampering inter-Korean harmony!”, “Stop planned U.S.-south Korean military exercises!” and “No harshest sanctions against north Korea!”.
Pyeongchang Winter Olympics showed that who is disturbing peace and security of the Korean Peninsula and seeking for war and the U.S. is the author of exacerbating tension on the peninsula, they noted.  
A vigorous action should be waged against the U.S. hamstring the process of inter-Korean relations and poking its nose into domestic affairs, they said and called for the people to take part in the rally to be held on March 3 in denunciation of the U.S.
Now the broad spectrum of south Korean people renew their determination to conduct a dynamic action against the war and U.S.
