Speech of Dr Dermot Hudson to the meeting to celebrate the Day of the Shining Star 15.02.2020

Comrades and friends,
Today we are here to mark the birth of a great revolutionary  comrade Kim Jong Il , at the same time it is a gesture of support for the Korean people in their struggle to achieve greater self-reliance in order to defeat the sanctions and blockades of the imperialist hostile forces.
   The life of comrade Kim Jong Il was associated with the Juche idea and the spirit of self-reliance , the idea of “Let Us Live Our Own Way “ . It can be said that Juche and self-reliance are the secret weapons of the Korean people in their struggle against the sanctions and blockades .

Comrade Kim Jong Il was born the son of guerrillas on February 16th 1942.  A UK KFA  delegation visited his birthplace at Mt Paektu in August 2017 .He did not come from a privileged background but was brought up in clothes made from old uniforms and spent his childhood in a simple log cabin. He witnessed the severe anti Japanese war and later as a young boy also witnessed the Fatherland Liberation War against the American imperialist aggressors the sworn enemy of the Korean people.
 Comrade Kim Jong Il  lived a most simple life . As a student he participated in the construction of Pyongyang. He also worked at a textile machinery factory at the number 26 lathe. When you visit the DPRK you will sometimes see machinery bearing the mark  No 26. Thus comrade Kim Jong Il was a true people's leader , always with the people sharing both hardship and joy with them. Often comrade Kim Jong Il did not celebrate his own birthday and dressed in an old parka.
  At the beginning of the 1960s Kim Jong Il gave guidance to the historic Seoul Ryu  Kyong Su 105 Guards Tank Division of the KPA . In June 1964 he started work at the central committee of the Workers' Party of Korea. As well as  practical day to day leadership he developed the ideology and theory of the WPK . He systematised and developed the Juche idea , producing the definitive work “ On the Juche Idea “ in March 1982, which I urge everyone to read if they have not already read it.
. Because of his skills as a theoretician and ideologist plus his modest style as a people's leader he was acclaimed as the successor to the great leader President  Kim Il Sung .

Comrade Kim Jong Il was  also deeply involved in the work of art , literature and culture in the DPRK . He created the seed theory of literary creation saying that “ If a writer is to produce a good piece of work, he must first select the right seed, which is the core of a literary work. “. Comrade Kim Jong Il wrote classic treatise “ On the Art of the Cinema “ even one Western academic  Alzo- David West had to concede that the On the Art of the Cinema  “ showed an  “understanding of the constructive elements of the literary text”
                                                                       

The great leader comrade Kim Jong Il steered the DPRK through the difficult period of the "arduous march  ". Even though the DPRK faced severe difficulties he made sure that a high level of social benefits was maintained . Vans with soya milk for children were always seen on the streets of the DPRK in this period.There was no austerity or cutbacks in the DPRK during that period , no hospitals or schools or welfare facilities closed down. Indeed a leading comrade of the British Group for the Study of the Juche Idea was able to receive medical treatment at a DPRK hospital in 1996.
                                                               

    The ideas of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung on national reunification were thoroughly applied and developed in depth by the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il . He made a decisive breakthrough in the struggle for national reunification by having the June 15 Declaration signed with the then south Korean chief executive Kim Dae Jung in 2000.
     Declaring "Expect No Change  from me!" , comrade Kim Jong Il combated the pressure and machinations of US imperialism . He upheld the banner of Juche  further supplemented it with the Songun idea and Songun politics  the treasured sword for defending independence.
    Today the DPRK is the world's most independent country . It is seen as a country that does not take nonsense from any imperialists or big powers .It is a country “that lives its own way “. Through self-reliance the DPRK is holding its own against the sanctions and blockade. This is the legacy of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il, a legacy that is today further developed and carried forward by the dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un , the one and only successor to the Juche cause.
    We  join with the Korean people and world progressives  in commemorating the great leader generalissimo Kim Jong Il on the 78th anniversary of his birth .

Kim Jong Il and His Exploits for Global Peace-from DPRK Embassy (contribution to the meeting to celebrate the Day of the Shining Star)


February 16 is the birthday of Kim Jong Il, eternal Chairman of the National Defence
Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
When the day comes round every year, many people of the world recall him with deep
emotion.
Kim Jong Il devoted his whole life for the cause of global peace.
He led the struggle to build a new world free from aggression and war upholding the
banner of anti-imperialist independence.
In the closing period of the last century when many socialist countries collapsed, he
wrote many works including The Historical Lesson in Building Socialism and the
General Line of Our Party (January 1992), Abuses of Socialism Are Intolerable (March
1993) and Socialism Is a Science (November 1994), scientifically proving the
truthfulness, validity and inevitability of the socialist cause and dealing resolute blows to
those who were trying to block the cause of global independence.
At the time even the so-called big countries were trying to avoid outrageous
high-handedness and arbitrariness of the imperialists, but Kim Jong Il dealt decisive
blows to them and defended independence and socialism of his country.
Whenever the situation of the Korean peninsula, one of the hot spots in the world, was
brought to the brink of war, he confronted the threat of aggression and high-handedness
of the hostile forces with a harder-line approach, disheartening the enemies and
honorably defending the sovereignty and dignity of his country.
In the 1990s when the situation was teetering on the brink of war, the DPRK gave a
fatal blow to the hostile forces by issuing a bombshell declaration of withdrawal from the
NPT, making a breach in the old international order based on the superiority of strength,
and ushering in a new age for the cause of global independence and peace.
Kim Jong Il was a peerlessly great man, whom everyone got fascinated with.
He actively engaged in external activities for the development of the international
relations and for the unity among states and nations; in his lifetime he met many heads of
state and party and even many of the countries hostile to the DPRK, including former US
President Clinton, Secretary of State Albright, and Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro
Koizumi.
Those who met him even once all got attracted to his intelligent and scientific view and
great personality, irrespective of their nationalities, religious beliefs, ideas and political
views.
He strengthened and developed the bond of friendship with many countries of the
world under the ideals of independence, friendship and peace.
His several rounds of visit to China and Russia and the fruits of his devoted efforts like
the DPRK-Russia Moscow Declaration exerted great influence to the development of
international relations and political situation of the world. Thanks to the devoted efforts,
the cause of global peace advanced vigorously along the road of independence.
Kim Jong Il defended the blue sky over the planet and the mankind on the strength of
Songun.
He challenged the old political structure of the world, characterized by domination,
subjugation, aggression and high-handedness, with his unique Songun politics, firmly
defending peace and security of the Korean peninsula, Northeast Asia and the rest of the
world. As many politicians and political figures recognized, his most outstanding exploit
was that he prevented the outbreak of a thermonuclear war and saved billions of people
from the crisis of nuclear catastrophe.
It is a logical conclusion that the start of a war on the Korean peninsula, a gate and
bridgehead to the Asian Continent and one of the hottest spots in the world, would lead
immediately to the start of another world war, bringing damage to the whole world.
However, a third world war or thermonuclear war did not break out.
Then, who prevented this war and brought peace to the world?
To this historical question, Vishwanath, a former political figure of India, answered: It
was none other than Chairman Kim Jong Il, a world-famous military commander, who
prevented the war and ensured global peace for over half a century by turning his country
into one with matchless military strength.
If, and only if, a war had broken out on the Korean peninsula, no one could have
imagined the three major transformations–the highest level of material prosperity,
technological advance and spiritual civilization–achieved by many countries for more
than half a century under the blue sky.
This exploit achieved by Kim Jong Il indeed made mankind advance one or two
centuries forward.
The exploits of Chairman Kim Jong Il will shine for ever in memory of many people of
the world.
