Pyongyang, April 3 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Tuesday dedicates an article to the 70th anniversary of the April 3 Popular Uprising on Jeju Island.
The April 3 Popular Uprising was a righteous anti-U.S., anti-fascist resistance to oppose the U.S. imperialists' colonial enslavement policy in south Korea and their moves for national division and achieve democracy of society and national reunification, the article says, and goes on:
The south Korean people do not allow their aspiration and demand, democratic rights and livelihood to be trampled down by the U.S. and the pro-American conservative forces. They are turning out to decisively punish the aggressors and traitors.
Just is their struggle to uproot the evils of the conservatives and realize the dream of new politics and new society.
70 years have passed since the April 3 Popular Uprising on Jeju Island in south Korea. Independence and democracy of the south Korean society and national reunification, so ardently desired by the uprisers, should be realized without fail.
The conservative group of south Korea is making last-ditch efforts to seek a way for revival while insulting the April 3 Popular Uprising as "riot by the leftist forces" and justifying its crime-woven history. A severe punishment should be given to the satanic group which is betraying the nation, beautifying the pro-U.S. sycophancy and fascist dictatorship and seeking a way out in confrontation with the fellow countrymen. -0
