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 a joint statement on the 51st anniversary of the capture of the US imperialist armed spy ship the "USS Pueblo" by the heroic Korean People's Army navy .
It is now 50 years since the "USS Pueblo "was captured by the navy of the heroic and invincible Korean Peope's Army , inflicting a defeat on US imperialism.
The captured ship is a symbol of victory in the anti-US, anti-imperialist struggle .The "Pueblo " is now on display at the Fatherland Liberation War Museum of the DPRK in Pyongyang . It forms the central part of the display of captured enemy weapons. It is the only US warship to be in the hands of an adversary of the US. The ship had remained in Wonsan for many years and then in 1998 was taken to the River Taedong in Pyongyang and moored at the site where the USS General Sherman was sunk by Korean patriots led by Kim Ung U the grandfather of the great revolutionary leader President Kim Il Sung . In 2013 it was moved to the reconstructed and expanded Fatherland Liberation War Museum on the River Potong.
A delegation of of the Juche Idea Study Group of England and the Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK has visited the "Pueblo " four time ,once in 2008 and at the new site in 2013 , October 2015 and April 2017. The "Pueblo " is a graphic and substantial demonstration of US imperialism's crimes against the Korean people .
The "Pueblo " was captured 7 miles off Wonsan on the east coast of the DPRK on the 23rd of January 1968 . Its crew were armed and so was the ship ,as it had a machine gun mounted at the stern . A small group of KPA sailors managed to overpower over 80 US personnel and capture them.
The US imperialists arrogantly demanded that the DPRK hand back both the ship and the crew , threatening to bomb the DPRK. The great leader President Kim Il Sung stood firm saying the DPRK would match all-out war for all-out war and that the only thing the US would get out of it was corpses and death . The modern revisionists,traitors and capitalutionists who are the agents of imperialism, had also suggested the DPRK hand back the ship and its crew but the DPRK stood firm and the "USS Pueblo " is still in Pyongyang 50 years after being captured .
The "Pueblo " is a living testimony to the bankruptcy of the US hostile policy towards the DPRK.
