                    24th  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 in Korea (BSCPRKP) issued a joint statement supporting the statement issued by the DPRK Foreign Ministry concerning the exclusion of Korean nursery schools from free education in Japan;
   The recent measure by the Japanese authorities to exclude Korean nursery schools from the system of free education in Japan is a deeply racist and discriminatory measure . As the DPRK Foreign Ministry states ' This unfair discrimination by the Japanese reactionaries is a fascist act unprecedented in history, designed to throw all the Korean residents in Japan into the vortex of national chauvinism and obliterate by all means the nationality within the community of Korean residents in Japan.'.It is also an unfair action as Korean residents in Japan pay taxes.
   It shows Japan's true colours as a racist state.
   We support the will of the DPRK as expressed by the Foreign Ministry statement to defend the rights and interests of Korean residents in Japan who are organised in the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan(CHONGRYON).

DPRK Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho: Pompeo is a poison of US diplomacy

Sanctions Will Never Work on DPRK

Pyongyang, August 24 (KCNA) -- Jong Hyon on Saturday made public the following article titled "Sanctions will never work on the DPRK":

The prestige of the DPRK advancing on the strength of self-reliance is drawing the worldwide attention.

At this time, the director of the CNA Institute of the United States said that sanctions will be futile in the future, too, not only at present in an article posted on website The Hill recently. There he maintained that the U.S. conservative rulers must admit that their maximum pressure policy failed and sanctions will not make north Korea change its mind.

This can be viewed as a frank assessment of the U.S. sanctions and pressure that never work on the DPRK.

It seems that the U.S. has not yet been departed from its old way of thinking, when considering various statements from political circles in Washington D.C.

The U.S. is resorting to military acts hostile toward the DPRK on the one hand and on the other hand is calling for "more pressure and sanctions" while terming the DPRK's exercises of its full-fledged right to self-defence provocations.

The Research Service of the U.S. Congress in a report on August 5 said in case all sanctions are lifted, tools for pressurizing north Korea can be reduced.

Time never stops and those, carried away by anachronistic delusion, still linger on the sanctions and pressure and consider sanctions relief as a big "concession" or "gift" to the DPRK. We can not help but laugh at it.

The international community is greatly surprised by the economic construction achievements made by the DPRK since the enforcement of its new strategic line and acknowledges that it has entered a new phase of the socialist cause, despite the unprecedented pressure.

The DPRK has built its might and won its inviolable position, defying the hostile forces' sanctions and blockade.

We are stepping up the construction of a powerful socialist country, developing economy and improving the standard of people's living despite the severest isolation and blockade in human history.

We have the strength and foundation and our own style fighting strategy and mode of creation for bringing the brighter future of socialism by dint of self-reliance.

The U.S. should clearly understand that we do not have a lingering attachment on sanctions relief and that we will never barter the strategic security of the country for the sanctions relief.

The U.S. must have felt that sanctions, pressure and sanctions relief are just like useless tatters and that they will not lead us to any "change."

Before it is too late, it has to break with the old way of thinking and face up to the reality. -0-

Nationwide anti-Japanese feelings

Nationwide anti-Japanese feelings

A nationwide action against Japan’s economic invasion is taking place across south Korea ahead of the 74th anniversary of Korea’s liberation. 

A candlelight rally criticizing Japan took place under the sponsorship of the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions and the People’s Action against Abe in Seoul on August 15.

More than 100, 000 people, in rain, chanted slogans “No Abe!”, “Liquidate pro-Japanese elements!” and “Abolish GSOMIA!”

When I was 14 years old, a principal of the Japanese school said that he would make her attend middle school, if she didn’t obey his words, he would put her parents behind the bars, Unable to refuse his words, I went to Japan, far from attending the school, I had worked all day long without pay, Yang Geum-dok, (aged 91) a draftee of forced laborer in the past, testified.

After the end of the rally, they marched along the street and the Japanese embassy, chanting slogans. 

Prior to this, a civic organization held a rally to demand Japan’s apology and compensation.

The US is bulldozing the south Korean authorities to increase upkeep for the US forces in south Korea and looking on Japan’s economic invasion with folded arms and putting pressure upon south Korea not abolish the GSOMIA, they noted. They stressed that the workers would maintain the principle of national independence.

After the end of the rally, they marched to the embassies of Japan and US carrying a statue of draftee of forced labor.

Fixed Will

A meeting was held in Seoul on August 14 to demand abolition of south Korea-US alliance and peaceful peninsula free from the US forces and oppose Abe.

An art performance was held with participation of the reunification vanguard and people across south Korea.

The head of reunification vanguard of the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions said that they travelled across south Korea to launch action to erect a statue of draftees of forced labor, the activity of the reunification vanguard end by tomorrow but they would intensify a vigorous action for movement for national independence after they return their workplaces and native homes. 

Peasants failed to take part in the meeting as farming is busy, our peasants would make utmost effort to reunify the country, said the head of peasant reunification vanguard.

We will stand in the van until the GSOMIA is abolished and peace is settled, the student reunification vanguard noted after the end of the art performance.

Candlelight is the only answer to removal of treacherous group, let’s us prevent foreign aggression on the strength of national cooperation, the head of reunification vanguard of the Solidarity for People's Sovereignty raised his voice. 

A new era of reunification is impossible unless the conservative force, which is being parasitic on the US and Japan and fattened on national division, is eradicated, let’s us open a fresh age of reunification by abrogating the Liberty Korea Party, they stressed.     

Let us open a new era of peace in the Korean Peninsula free from the US army in the spirit of national independence, they pointed out.

Proud course of 50 years

The Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front greets its 50th birth anniversary at a time when south Korean revolutionary movement marks a new turning-point.

The Revolutionary Party of Reunification, founded on August 25, 1969, was renamed the National Democratic Front of south Korea and then the organization has its current name of the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front since March 2005. The AINDF has traversed hard and bloody path to achieve independence, democracy and reunification under the banner of Juche for five decades.

During the period the AINDF has led the south Korean revolutionary movement to victory under the banner of Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism. The AINDF has performed its mission as a patriotic vanguard leading the south Korean people’s sacred struggle for national liberation, democracy and independent reunification.

The AINDF has carried out the revolution along the path of Juche, regarding the immortal Juche idea as the only guiding ideology, undergoing all tempests of history.

 The AINDF has positively supported the proposals for independent and peaceful reunification and vigorously waged actions against vicious moves of the anti-reunification elements at home and abroad to stoke inter-Korean confrontation and war maneuvers, true to noble intention of the peerless great men. 

In each period and at each stage of the revolutionary movement, the AINDF has released statements on political situation and pending issues of south Korea to cast light on direction of the people’s movement by declaring its stand and will throughout the world.   

The leading figures of the AINDF such as comrades Kim Jong-tae and Choi Young-do were brutally killed by south Korean fascist authorities, however, the AINDF has dynamically conducted its activities.

The righteous assertion and remarkable struggle enjoy positive support from the Korean nation and international anti-imperialist forces of the world and its influence continue to expand highly. 

In particular, groups for the study of Juche idea and organizations of Britain, Switzerland and Spain are launching actions to support the struggle of the AINDF and south Korean people.

The AINDF vanguard fighters and south Koreans are greatly inspired by organizations of the world and they are grateful for it.

The AINDF’s proud course of 50 years and its high prestige is attributable to wise guidance of the peerless great men. It is an inevitable fruition in following the path of Juche.

The AINDF is faced with important task to put an end to century-long occupation rule of the foreign force and transform social climate fraught with injustice and corruption. It should accelerate the struggle for achieving the people’s desire for peace and reunification.

The south Korean people have craved for a new society, politics and life, however, their desire have not yet been realized owing to obstructive moves of the hostile elements within and without.

The south Korean warlike force is widely introducing up-to-date war hardware with stupendous amount of war expenditure. Meanwhile, it is escalating the tension by conducting war games against the DPRK in pursuit of the foreign force.

The south Korean conservative group have put a brake on people’s advance, while openly disturbing the implementation of historic inter-Korean declarations. Meantime, they have made desperate efforts to revive its age of treacherous conservatism.

The prevailing situation requests the AINDF vanguard fighters and people from all social standings to further intensify their righteous struggle without interruption they have conducted for decades.  

We will lead the struggle to victory to build an independent and righteous society where the people are masters of it by putting an end to the domination of foreign forces and liquidating pro-US and Japanese rule and conservative force.

We, regarding the proposals for reunifying the country as the most reasonable milestone, will accelerate the campaign for realizing the independent reunification and intensify a vigorous action to foil vicious moves of the anti-reunification forces within and without.

The course of struggle is rough, however, the cause of the AINDF is invincible as it is advancing under the leadership of the peerless great persons.

Glasgow Juche Idea Study Group holds meeting


Having formed on Saturday June 1st 2019, the Glasgow branch of the Juche Idea Study Group of Britain held it's first group study meeting on Wednesday August 21st.
The meeting commenced at 6pm. In attendance were members of KFA Scotland
The first aspect of the Juche Idea to be studied was the philosophical principle that Man is a Social Being.
Using material from KFA USA's Juche Idea Study Course we each took turns to read out parts bit by bit and then discuss each part. We learnt that it was Marxism which clarified man as social being for the first time claiming “man is, in essence, totality of social relations” against the unscientific and reactionary viewpoint that regarded man as a simple material or biological being or mental being. We discussed the fact that Marxism explained that man is a being defined by the social relations but failed to explain what the essential features of man are. It was inevitable for Marxism to have considered social being as the material conditions of human activity and mode of production, attaching decisive significance to them. But it was the Juche idea which raised it as an important philosophical task to explain the essential features of man and for the first time in history gave the most correct answer to it and thus established a perfect philosophical understanding of man.
As part of this section we came across the oft said point of the Juche Idea that man has three essential attributes.
These three essential attributes of man (which no other material thing has) will be the subject matter for the next group study session.
All in all it was a very productive study session and the meeting concluded at 7.50pm
We hope to hold group study sessions fortnightly.
