KCNA Commentary Rebukes "Conservatives' Mega-Merging" Farce


Pyongyang, November 20 (KCNA) -- A saying goes habit is a second nature.

The group of the "Liberal Korea Party" on the verge of collapse is keen on "mega-merging of the conservatives".

"National Assemblymen" from the traitorous party and coteries of its emergency measure committee, calling the present moment an "essential point for reorganizing conservative non-government camp," keep shouting hoarse for "rebuilding a bipartisan system structure" and "setting up anti-Moon Jae In solidarity".

Making eyes at the "Parun Mirae Party" on one hand, they are complimenting former "prime minister" Hwang Kyo An as "an asset of conservatives," being deeply engrossed in a persuasion campaign for "enrollment in the party".

The merging farce of the conservatives that aims at seizing power is not just simple reorganization of the political camp but an outright challenge and an open declaration of a war against the south Koreans who overturned the conservative regime through righteous candlelight resistance.

The candlelight vigil that brightened the land across south Korea was an eruption of the pent-up wrath and indignation of the south Koreans against the fascist dictator ill-famed for unpopular rule, sycophantic treachery and confrontation between the fellow countrymen.

But the accomplices who should have already been punished together with the kingpin of dictatorship, corruption and irregularities are whetting the sword of revenge.

They spit out invectives almost every day, calling on "conservatives to rally to end the leftist regime" and pledging to "punish the leftist regime to satisfy the grudge of the conservatives".

To rake up the conservative forces, they held the farce of admitting thousands of the "Thaegukgi Unit" into the "Liberal Korea Party," a group of ultra-right conservatives who took up the cudgels against the impeachment of traitor Park Geun Hye.

Chosun Ilbo, Dong-A Ilbo and other conservative media have been exploited to describe the candlelight actions waged by the broad segments of south Koreans as a "riot egged on by the pro-north leftist forces".

Clear is the aim sought by the group of the political philistines in crying out for the "mega-merging of conservatives," still going in high spirits, though they are forsaken by the people for their thrice-cursed crimes. That is to annihilate the democratic reformist forces as "pro-north leftist forces" and "leftist regime" and to go back to the era of nightmare-like conservative regimes.

This shows with added clarity that the merging farce is part of a political coup for the revival of fascist dictatorship.

Nothing can reverse the public inclination toward social justice, democracy, and independent reunification of the nation however desperate the sediments of history may try.

The south Koreans are sure to shatter the LKP's pipedream of "mega-merging" through more courageous anti-conservative actions. -0

Women's Rights in the DPRK

UK KFA Condemns FCO for stepping up sanctions on the DPRK

UK KOREAN FRIENDSHIP ASSOCIATION 
                                 


 Sunday  18th of November 2018



The UK Korean Friendship Association (UK KFA) takes issue with the connivance of the British government with the anti-DPRK sanctions of the US and UNSC.

Yesterday the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) issued a statement after a meeting with officials from the US State Department. It unjustly branded the DPRK's legitimate trading activities as "illicit" and even called on the maritime industry including insurers "to ensure they are taking all steps possible to cease any activities that may contribute to the DPRK’s ability to import refined petroleum, and export coal and other sanctioned items". It is especially noteworthy that the government are trying to rope in private companies into enforcing sanctions against the DPRK. This represents a move to further extend the sanctions against People's Korea; it is totally unjust and reactionary measure.

The sanctions on the DPRK by the US and the UN Security Council were wrong right from the very start as they sought to punish the DPRK for self-defensive activities which are allowed under the UN charter. Moreover the permanent members of the UN Security Council have themselves carried out nuclear and ballistic missile tests; therefore the sanctions against the DPRK are hypocritical ones.

The DPRK has suspended nuclear and missile tests so there is now absolutely no reason for the sanctions to continue to remain in force let alone being stepped up and intensified.

The DPRK has made moves towards peace this year such as holding the June 12th summit with the US president and holding three inter-Korean summits. This also negates any reason for sanctions against the DPRK. Indeed because sanctions are basically economic warfare, they could impede and imperil the peace process on the Korean peninsula.

The UK-KFA calls upon the British government to abandon its attempts to sabotage the momentum towards a regional rapprochement. Instead the UK should adopt a positive outlook to the DPRK; a mutually beneficial policy of constructive engagement and trade.
NO TO SANCTIONS ! NO TO WAR !
HANDS OFF PEOPLE'S KOREA !
KOREA IS ONE !

"Resolution" against DPRK under Fire

Pyongyang, November 17 (KCNA) -- The Permanent Mission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) to the United Nations issued the following press statement with regard to the forced adoption of the anti-DPRK "draft resolution on human rights" submitted by the European Union (EU) and Japan at the Third Committee of the 73rd Session of the United Nations General Assembly on 15 November 2018.

The Permanent Mission of the DPRK to the UN resolutely and totally rejects the anti-DPRK "resolution" (A/C.3/73/L.40) which was adopted forcibly at the Third Committee of the 73rd Session of the United Nations General Assembly.

The "resolution" has nothing to do with genuine human rights, as it is a product of political plot of hostile forces that try to disgrace the image of the DPRK and overthrow its social system.

"Human rights issue" mentioned in the "resolution" has never existed and cannot be allowed to exist in my country where we value most the dignity and independent rights of human being.

All materials contained in the "resolution" are nothing but the most despicable false words fabricated by a handful of "defectors" who escaped after having committed crimes to sustain their dirty lives and therefore, we don't feel any need to make even a word on it.

My delegation expresses deep concern and surprise at the fact that EU and Japan instigate confrontation by tabling "draft resolution" which is full of political criticisms and fabrication, at the time when the atmosphere of reconciliation and cooperation is prevailing on the Korean peninsula and efforts are being made for establishing a permanent and durable peace mechanism in the Korean peninsula.

The main sponsors of the "draft resolution", EU and Japan are neither qualified nor in a position to talk about other's human rights issues.

In those countries of the EU, the grave crimes against humanity continue to be perpetrated like Islamophobia, xenophobia, extreme racial discrimination and ill-treatment, worst-ever refugee crisis and neo-Nazism.

Especially Japan is the criminal state which militarily occupied Korea in the past and committed A-class crimes against humanity such as 1 million massacre, 8.4 million forced drafting and 200,000 sexual slavery for the Japanese army.

But not yet Japan implemented at all the recommendations of the UN Special Rapporteur on violence against women, Ms. Radhika Coomaraswamy, officially made in 1996 to the Japanese government for acknowledgement of the Japanese military sexual slavery crime, official apology and compensation to the victims, full disclosure of relevant document and materials, set up of special administrative tribunal and punishment of the perpetrators.

Japan must implement these recommendations of the UN Special Rapporteur on violence against women at the first, before talking about other's human rights issues.

The United Nations should, first of all, take issue with the crimes of human rights violation of these countries strictly and punish the perpetrators completely.

Today, in the DPRK all people are enjoying genuine freedom and rights to the full extent thanks to the politics of attaching importance to, respecting and loving the people unfolded by Chairman Kim Jong Un of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

We take great pride and confidence in our style socialism and the system of providing true human rights chosen with conviction and consolidated and developed by ourselves.

Although the DPRK remains in consistent position to attach importance to dialogue and cooperation for promotion and protection of human rights in the international arena, it will strongly respond to the end to confrontation and pressure of the hostile forces aimed at defaming its dignity and overthrowing its system with manipulation of non-existing "human rights issues", and will continue to defend our style socialist system centered on the popular masses. -0-

Brief Statement by ASSPUK, JISGE , UK KFA and BSCPRKP on the test of the advanced tactical weapon in People's Korea

ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF SONGUN POLITICS UK

http://www.uk-songun.com/index.php email juche007@yahoo.co.uk                                                                                          
                                      

                   London  16th of November Juche 107(2018)
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 British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification (BSCPRKP)  today issued a brief statement on the succesful test of the advanced tactical weapon in the DPRK:
  The test of the new advanced tactical weapon of People's Korea that was conducted under the guidance of the dear respected leader Marshal KIM JONG UN , is very great news . It is an assertion of the DPRK 's independence and shows that it has not been fooled or deceived by the tricky and cunning US imperialists and their false ballad of 'peace ' .
The weapons test is a great blow against imperialism and will strengthen the DPRK 's Juche-based independent defence capabilities .
Those who said that the DPRK was selling out have been proved wrong !
Long live Songun !
Long live Juche !
Long live the Korean People's Army
Long live respected Marshal KIM JONG UN !

Commentary by ASSPUK, JISGE , UK KFA and BSCPRKP on the UN "human rights" resolution

So the UN have passed yet another fake , reactionary human rights resolution against People 's Korea . This is not based on any real , hard , tangible evidence but on fabricated stories from so-called "defectors " who betrayed their Juche country and sold out for 800k dollars so will say anything they are told .
Really those countries who backed the resolution have no right to cast stones at People's Korea . Lets look at them , Japan is well known as a war criminal state and for endemic racism against ethnic minorities including Koreans in Japan . Japan has been shown to ill treat old people . Then you have the United States , a country of extreme inequality , a land where money buys everything . The US has thousands of homeless people .It has people begging on the streets and living in tents . The US is a land of racism with dozens of fascist and neo-nazi organisations who are unimpeded by law . Then you have south Korea which still has the National Security Law and still jails communists and Juche idea followers , South Korea has the longest working hours in the world and is known as the 'republic of suicide ' . Finally there is the EU one of the prime movers behind the resolution . This is an institution hated and rejected by the peoples of its member states who cannot wait to leave it ! All member states of the EU have high unemployment , poverty and homelessness.Far right fascist groups stomp the streets of EU member countries such Germany with its history of nazi-ism . Britain which is still an EU member state and has been active in slandering the DPRK's human rights record , has growing legions of homeless and people queuing up at Foodbanks !
Really the sponsors of the anti-DPRK resolution should be investigated for human right breaches . Human rights like charity should begin at home

Some research on the food issue in the DPRK-short article by JISGE

Image may contain: 4 people, people smiling, people standing, cloud, sky, nature and outdoor
Ever since the DPRK went through a difficult period in the 1990s due to extensive flooding , hailstorms plus the disappearance of the world socialist market and the intensification of sanctions and blockade against the DPRK (the DPRK faced a double and triple blockade as some trading partners demanded payment in dollars ) . These circumstances were used by the imperialists and other enemies of Juche to malignantly slander the socialist system .The reptile press talked about "famine " and "starvation" etc.
JISGE sent a delegation to the DPRK in 1996 and saw no signs of famine or starvation. We were castigated and criticised for telling the truth.
In fact prior to the 1990s the DPRK had been self-sufficient in agriculture . The great leader President
KIM IL SUNG pointed out in 1962 that " Comrades, formerly we had to buy grain from foreign countries every year. But, from this year on we need not do so because we had a good crop last year. What a good thing it is to harvest a good crop and lighten the burdens of our brother countries!".
Our delegation can remember visiting the Sunan Farm in 1996 and being told that 8 tons of grain per hectare were harvested and also seeing giant apples.
The DPRK was actually a grain exporting country . I remember a bourgeois reference book in a library in the 1980s showed that the DPRK was a major rice exporting in the 1970s .Checking the index mundi, an imperialist reference source that is by no stretch of imagination pro DPRK or pro Juche or pro communist , I found the following facts , in 1977 the DPRK exported 412,000 tons of milled rice along with 200,000 tons of corn . In 1975 and 1976 it exported a record 300,000 tons of corn . The DPRK exported 10,000 tons of milled rice in 1990 and 12,000 tons of corn.
So it it is nonsense to say that the DPRK cannot "feed itself " etc and dissmiss Juche socialist agriculture and self-reliance !
