50 years along the road of Juche and struggle for anti-imperialist independence in south Korea -special article by Dr Dermot Hudson to mark the 50th anniversary of the foundation of the AINDF of south Korea.

                                         

                                                 
August 25th marks the 50th anniversary of the foundation of the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front of south Korea(AINDF). The AINDF is an anti-imperialist resistance organisation in south Korea guided by the great Juche idea and fights for the independent reunification of Korea . It supports the Democratic People's Republic of Korea . The imperialist mainstream media who are hand in glove with the south Korean reactionaries like to blank out the existence of the AINDF and paint a false picture that there is no support for the Juche idea in south Korea which is not true although of course Juche idea fighters and anti-imperialist face repression in south Korea under the draconian National Security Law , a fascist type McCarthyite style law.
  The story of the AINDF is very much an untold one as far as a lot of the Left in Western countries are concerned.It is a story of a group of dedicated revolutionaries fighting against repression and tyranny, There is a false view that somehow south Korea is a "democracy" or just a bit authoritarian but in fact it is a fascist state which has been ruled by a series of pro-US fascist dictators such as Syngham Rhee , Park Chung Hee, Roh Tae Woo  and Park Geun Hye . These despots heavily repressed the people , drowning the uprisers on Cheju Island in 1948 and in Kwangju City in 1980 in a sea of blood . Any sympathy for communism could be punished by a prison sentence or even the death sentence.
  The AINDF was originally formed as the Revolutionary Party for Reunification on the 25th of August 1969 ,it became the National Democratic Front of south Korea in 1985 to reflect the realities of the emerging mass democratic struggles in south Korea and in 2005 became the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front of south Korea. The AINDF has missions in Pyongyang and in Tokyo, Japan. I am proud to have visited the Pyongyang mission of the AINDF 12 times since 2008.
                                   
   When Korea was liberated from Japanese imperialist colonial rule in 1945 , south Korea was occupied by the US imperialists shortly after liberation. One of the first things the US occupiers did was to ban the Communist Party and dissolve the People's Committee's . During the anti-Japanese armed struggle units of the Korean People's Revolutionary Army(KPRA), led by the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG  had been active in south Korea and political workers of the KPRA were in south Korea. After 1945 the communist and revolutionary movement in south Korea not only had to face severe and bloody repression but the disruptive actions of US intelligence agents such as Pak Hong Yon and also factionalists, revisionists and opportunists .
   At the 4th Congress of the Workers Party of Korea which was attended by a delegation of south Korea revolutionary organisations which included comrade Zo Il Min , who I met many times , the
great leader President KIM IL SUNG said " The people in south Korea must have an independent workers’ and peasants’ party, a party deeply rooted in the broad masses, and they must win legal status for it.
This political party to be organized by the working people in south Korea will have to unite all patriotic forces and fight for the realization of a thoroughly anti-imperialist, anti-feudal program, and for the satisfaction of the urgent demands of the south Korean people".
  Later in February 1964 President KIM IL SUNG made the speech '"Let us strengthen the revolutionary forces for reunification in every way to achieve the cause of reunification of the country" With his deep insight into the requirements of the rapidly-changing situation in south Korea and the development of revolution in the 1960s, the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung taught, that the revolutionary forces in north and south Korea, the internal revolutionary forces, should be built up and solidarity with international revolutionary forces strengthened, in order to drive out the US imperialists and achieve national reunification and nationwide victory in the revolution.  The great leader comrade Kim Il Sung stressed that the decisive factor was the internal revolutionary forces , the revolutionary forces of north Korea and the revolutionary forces of south Korea. He said that
"It is important ,above all, to firmly build up the main force of the revolution.The main force of the revolution means the main classes which can be mobilised in the revolution , and a Marxist Leninist Party deeply rooted among them. Revolution is only crowned with victory when  workers and peasants , main classes in society are mobilised under the leadership of a Marxist-Leninist Party "
                               
 Inspired by the teaching of President KIM IL SUNG the south Korean revolutionaries formed a
Preparatory Committee for the foundation for the Revolutionary Party of Reunification on the 15th of March 1964. The organisations of the Preparatory Committee for the RPR waged active struggles including the struggle against the south-Korea-Japan talks and the visit of the US vice president.  All kinds of struggle including armed struggle were carried out. The Preparatory Committee for the RPR formed united front bodies such as the  Front for the Liberation of the Fatherland and the Front of the National Liberation. It also published Chongmaek and Hyokmong Chonson(Revolutionary Front)
  Finally in 1969 the Revolutionary Party for Reunification was formed after a long struggle . It declared its adherence to the great Juche idea and published a 14 point platform which called for the
abolition of  the colonial rule of the US imperialists and establishment  an independent and democratic government. President KIM IL SUNG hailed the formation of the the RPR saying that
"As a united Marxist-Leninist party , a party of the working class was born in the hard revolutionary fight of the south Korean revolutionaries and people against the US imperialists and their stooges . With its emergence , broad masses of the oppressed and exploited people in south Korea acquired a genuine defender of their class and national interests. The south Korean people today have a reliable political general staff in their revolutionary battle for freedom and liberation"
 The leaders of the RPR were martyred by the vile reactionary puppet fascist regime of the US imperialists . On the 25th of January 1969  Comrade Choi Young-do, chairman of the RPR South Cheonnam Province Committee heroically died in prison and on the 10th of July 1969 Comrade Kim Jong Tae , chairman of the RPR Seoul City Committee heroically died in prison. As he was being executed by the degenerate fascist ruffians comrade Kim Jong Tae shouted 'Long live the Juche idea, Long live the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG !".  President KIM IL SUNG had the Pyongyang Electric Locomotive Factory renamed the  Kim Jong Tae Electric Locomotive Factory and the Haeju University of  Education renamed Kim Jong Tae  University of EducationLater in 1972 other leaders of the RPR including comrade Kim Jil Rak were murdered by the diabolic puppet fascist regime .
                                     
         
  Despite intense and heavy repression as well the dirty tricks of opportunists, worshippers of big powers , revisionists and traitors the RPR and its successors the NDFSK and AINDF upheld the great Juche idea and the teachings  of the great leader President KIM IL SUNG , Chairman KIM JONG IL and dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN . They formed secret reading circles to study the Juche idea and the Juche idea is being widely disseminated in south Korea
   Also the RPR and its successor organisations take part in many mass struggles . For example on the 28th of May 1980 the RPR issued Appeal to the south Korean people” referring to the fact that the Gwangju popular uprising was suppressed by the Chun Doo-hwan fascist homicidal clique and as a result the situation developed to a convulsive turmoil. The appeal called on all patriotic people of south Korea to brace themselves up in order to wipe out the brutal Chun Doo-hwan clique and hasten the dawn of democracy by firmly uniting under the banner of  anti-fascist salvation.
  Despite repression and weight of anti-communist , anti-DPRK, anti-Juche propaganda in south Korea the AINDF, the successor of the RPR is unbowed and unbroken , it is fighting for independence , democracy and reunification. Our UK KFA , Juche Idea Study Group and Association for the Study of Songun Politics , are deeply proud to have relations with the AINDF and to have met them many times. 
   We are sure that the day will come when the south Korean people led by the AINDF, their vanguard , will rise up in the final struggle for independence and reunification  . Only victory and glory await the great AINDF guided by the immortal Juche idea !
KOREA IS ONE  !
LONG LIVE THE AINDF !
LONG LIVE THE SOUTH KOREAN REVOLUTION !

  18th   of August  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 the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification in Korea (BSCPRKP)issued a joint statement  on the occasion of the 50th  anniversary of the foundation of the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front of south Korea on the 25th of August 2019
  For 50 years the Revolutionary Party for Reunification(RPR) and its successor organisation the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front of south Korea have proudly marched along the road of Juche and have fought for independence and reunification. The formation of the RPR on the 25th of August 1969 dealt a great blow to the US imperialists.
                                 


  The RPR declared the foundation of its Central Committee in Seoul on the 25th of August and published its manifesto .  The RPR declared that it was guided by the immortal Juche Idea of the great revolutionary leader President  KIM IL SUNG.
     As the great leader President KIM IL SUNG said "As a united Marxist-Leninist party , a party of the working class was born in the hard revolutionary fight of the south Korean revolutionaries and people against the US imperialists and their stooges . With its emergence , broad masses of the oppressed and exploited people in south Korea acquired a genuine defender of their class and national interests. The south Korean people today have a reliable political general staff in their revolutionary battle for freedom and liberation"
(KIM IL SUNG Selected Works Vol V p480)                                        

   Thus the existence of the Revolutionary Party for Reunification was announced to the world and shook the south Korean puppet fascist regime like thunder.
   The RPR fully embodied the great Juche Idea and adopted the wise teachings of the great leader
President KIM IL SUNG on the national liberation,people's democratic revolution.
   Since its foundation  49 years ago  the RPR and its successors , the NDFSK and AINDFSK , have unremittingly carried the anti-fascist , anti-imperialist struggle in south Korea despite the vile fascist suppression of the south Korean puppet cliques.
                                 

         
                                             

Leaders of the RPR such as Kim Jong Tae and Choi Young Do were murdered by the south Korean puppet fascist regime becoming martyrs for the south Korean revolution and the reunification of the country . The RPR fought hard against the south Korean puppet regime and the US imperialists using all forms of struggle , legal and illegal, violent and non-violent . The RPR carried out daring operations such as the Blue House raid and attacks on US and south Korean puppet troops.
     The RPR , guided by the great Juche Idea, not only struggled against the south Korean fascist  puppet regime  but also against revisionism, flunkeyism ,great power chauvinism, opportunism, dogmatism and factionalism.
             The RPR in order  to reflect the mass democratic struggles in the 1980s against the fascist Chun regime of south Korea became the National Democratic Front of south Korea . The NDFSK played a valiant role in the struggle to democratise south Korea and overthrow the Chun-Roh fascists. During the late 1980s south Korean students and youth , risking jail or even death, studied the Juche Idea.
                               
      Today the AINDF is bravely fighting  for independence against neo-colonialism and  it is fighting hard for independent reunification, true liberation, It upholds the leadership of  the dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN , lodestar of national reunification in high esteem   and strives to embody Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism in its work. Guided by the great Juche Idea the AINDF will win final victory.
   Our organisations, the ASSPUK, JISGE  UK KFA and the  British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification in Korea (BSCPRKP) are very proud to have fraternal relations with the AINDF and will strive to strengthen them .Glory to the AINDF on its 50th anniversary !
Long live the AINDF!
Long live the south Korean revolution.!
Korea is One !
Yanks out of south Korea
Long live Korean reunification !
Long live the Juche Idea !

  18th of August  Juche 108(2019)

 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 on the Korean Peninsula (BSCPRKP) issued the following joint statement on the upcoming Day of Songun , the 59th anniversary of the start of the Songun revolutionary leadership in the DPRK ;
                                                   

The Songun revolutionary leadership began 59 years ago with the guidance of the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL to  the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su Guards no 105 tank divison of the Korean People's Army. The No 105 tank division is an army unit of the KPA steeped in revolutionary history as it was the first KPA unit to rush into Seoul during the great Fatherland Liberation War of  1950-1953.   August 25th is now proudly celebrated in the DPRK as the Day of Songun . Dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN wrote
" The Day of Songun, when General Kim Jong Il started his leadership of the Songun revolution, is, together with the day of the founding of the KPA (Korean People's Army), a historic day when an important milestone was set up for the history of building up our revolutionary armed forces and the history of our country. As there was this significant day, a historic turn could be brought about in developing our revolutionary armed forces and implementing the cause of the Juche revolution, and the history and traditions of our sacred Songun revolution that had been pioneered and developed by force of arms, achieving victory, could be carried forward continuously"
  The Songun revolutionary leadership of the great generalissimo KIM JONG IL began at a time when the US imperialists were causing tension all over the world such as the Vietnam war and the Cuban missile crisis. The modern revisionists , the agents of the imperialists in the international communist movement and the socialist camp, had capitulated to imperialism and were even putting pressure on the DPRK to give up its anti-imperialist stand and disarm itself , melting down tanks and guns , under the banner of 'peaceful co-existence ' and 'peaceful co-operation' with the imperialists. The great generalissimo's KIM IL SUNG and KIM JONG IL  declared that the DPRK would not go down this road but would build up the people's revolutionary armed forces on the basis of self-reliance. Dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN explained
  Regarding the strengthening of the KPA as the most important of affairs in the Songun revolution, he raised the KPA as the buttress, the main force, of our revolution and achieved the historic victory in the grim anti-imperialist, anti-US showdown in defence of the country's security and socialism by training the KPA to be the army of the leader boundlessly faithful to the cause of the WPK (Workers' Party of Korea), to be an invincible revolutionary army.
    The great leader generalissimo KIM JONG IL carried forward the cause of Juche-army building and Songun revolutionary leadership pioneered by the great leader President KIM IL SUNG . During the five decades of Songun revolutionary leadership the heroic Korean People's Army was built up splendidly in all field not just in terms of weaponry and technique but in terms of ideology and morale. The KPA became the pillar of the Songun revolution.
   Under the Songun revolutionary leadership the KPA  discharged its role of defender of the gains of socialism with honour. In the confrontation between the DPRK and the imperialist forces after the Fatherland Liberation War , the independence and security of the DPRK was safeguarded and the defence power increased.
  Thanks to the Songun revolutionary leadership of the great leader President KIM IL SUNG and eternal Chairman KIM JONG IL , DPRK became a strategic state.
  Dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN has continued with the Songun revolutionary leadership saying that "The permanent strategy of our revolution and its final victory lie in going straight along the road of independence, the road of Songun, the road of socialism". Thanks to Songun peace on the Korean peninsula has been secured.Led by dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN the Korean people will win final victory  !
Glory to the Songun revolutionary leadership !, long may it continue !
Glory to the memory of the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL!

Adventurous war game

Adventurous war game



The United States and south Korean authorities have finally started the joint military exercise targeting the DPRK.

The first joint military exercise "Focus Lens" was conducted in south Korea in 1954, the year after the conclusion of the Armistice Agreement. All the U.S.-south Korea joint military exercises which have been annually conducted during the past 65 years since then were unexceptionally aggressive war exercises simulating the surprise and preemptive attack on the DPRK.

The U.S. increases hostile military tension against the DPRK by deploying a large amount of latest offensive military equipment in south Korea, in disregard of its commitment to suspend joint military exercises made at summit level on such occasions as the Singapore DPRK-U.S. summit and the Panmunjeom DPRK-U.S. summit.

Even after the Singapore DPRK-U.S. summit, the U.S. and south Korean authorities continuously staged all kinds of aggressive war exercises targeting the DPRK, such as Marine Corps Joint Exercise, "Alliance 19-1", Joint Aerial Drill, "Proliferation Security Initiative".


The U.S. did not hesitate to conduct the missile interception test simulating an interception of our ICBMs and the test-fire of ICBM "Minuteman-3" and SLBM "Trident 2 D-5."


The U.S. also made clear, in "its nuclear deterrence policy report," its policy position to oppose the ban on nuclear first use against the DPRK and it dared to expose the repugnance towards the DPRK by branding the latter as a "rogue state" and a "proliferator" of nuclear technology, chemical weapons and ballistic missiles.


Recently, "F-35A" stealth fighters were brought into south Korea and the U.S. nuclear strategic submarine "Oklahoma City" came into port of Busan. In the meantime, the U.S. is pushing forward the move to introduce even high-altitude reconnaissance drone "Global Hawk" into south Korea.


This is an undisguised denial and a flagrant violation of June 12 DPRK-U.S. Joint Statement, Panmunjeom Declaration and September Pyongyang Joint Declaration, all of which are agreements to establish new DPRK-U.S. relations and build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.


The Korean nation at home and abroad and the world progressives are sharply condemning the US and south Korean authorities which have no political volition to implement joint declarations committing the improvement of the DPRK-US and inter-Korean relations and are engaging in reckless war games and arms buildup. 


Ever-growing anti–Japanese feeling



Early in July, south Korean people’s anti-Japanese feeling is spreading as Japan removed south Korea from white list.
Members of the People’s Action against Abe called a news conference in front of the Japanese embassy in Seoul on August 2 to denounce Japan which passed a bill removing south Korea from the white list, chanting slogans against Japan.
A series of protest against Japan’s economic retaliation took place in Seoul.
Civic organizations including the Korea Confederation of Trade Unions and the Solidarity for Progress held a candlelight rally against Japan in sultry weather.
15 000 people urged the south Korean authorities to abolish GSOMIA and agreement on comfort women by repaying a billion ¥.
  On the same day, they chanted anti-Japanese slogans carrying bulletin board at the candlelight rally held under the sponsorship of the People’s Action against Abe.
They chanted slogans “Let’s write a new history by dint of people”, “Let’s achieve victory by candlelight resistance” and “Apologize, aggressive domination”.
On August 3, a meeting against Japan was held beside the Japanese consulate. More than 600 people took part in the meeting. There was a speech made by a student in Busan and art performance.
They called for the people to sweep away pro-Japanese forces.

Swimming against peace




The US and south Korea have staged joint military exercise "Alliance 19-2" against the DPRK in August.
The US is claiming the exercise is a simulation to verify the capacity of the south Korean army for taking over wartime operations.
However, it is an actual maneuvers and a rehearsal for war aimed at militarily occupying the DPRK by surprise attack and rapid dispatch of large-scale reinforcements on the plea of “containment” and “counteroffensive” in case of emergency.  
The suspension of joint military exercises is what President Trump, commander-in-chief of the US forces, personally committed to at the DPRK-US summit talks in Singapore under the eyes of the world and reaffirmed at the DPRK-US summit meeting at Panmunjeom.  
Less than a month after the DPRK-US summit meeting at Panmunjeom the US plans to resume the joint military exercise it directly promised to suspend at the highest level.  
It is an apparent violation of the main spirit of June 12 DPRK-US Joint Statement and a naked pressure upon the DPRK.
