ASSPUK, JISGE , UK KFA and BSCPRKP on the 66th anniversary of the Korean People's Victory in the Fatherland Liberation War



               22nd of July 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 on the 66th anniversary of the victory of the Korean people , led by the great leader Generalissimo Kim Il Sung , in the great Fatherland Liberation War against the US imperialists;
   66 years agothe Korean people led by great generalissimo Kim Il Sung defeated US imperialism on the battlefied .On July 27th  is celebraed by the Korean people as their second liberation day .It is an inspiration not only for the Korean people but for Juche idea followers, Songun idea followers and anti-imperialist fighters the world over so July 27th is celebrated across the globe from Bogotá to Belfast !
  Dear respected Chairman Kim Jong Un said "Our July 27 is the second Day of Liberation when our people defended with honour their country's dignity and sovereignty from the brigandish aggression by the U.S. imperialists, and also the day of proud victors that put the U.S. imperialists, who were recklessly attempting to gain hegemony in the world and enslave it, on a downhill march towards ruin."

  The heroic and glorious KPA commanded by the great leader Marshal Kim Il Sung tore the guts out of US imperialism.The US imperialists lost over : 1,567,128 men including 405,498 US soldiers, 1,130,965 south Korean puppet troops, and 30,665 soldiers of their satellite states were killed, wounded or captured; 12,224 airplanes includ­ing "air fortress B-29" were downed, damaged or captured, 7,695 guns, 3,255 233 tanks and armoured cars were lost; and 564 warships and vessels including the heavy cruiser Baltimore and the flagship of the Seventh Fleet Missouri were sunk or damaged. The loss suffered by the US imperialists was nearly 2.3 times greater than what they had suffered in the four years of the Pacific War during World War II. Even official US statistics showed during each of the three years of the Korean war they lost double the troops for each year of the Vietnam war.
    US general Mark Clark lamented mournfully that he was the first US commander to conclude an armistice without a victory .
   The Fatherland Liberation War of the Korean people was an unequal battle as the US imperialists threw in huge armed forces plus the troops of 15 of their satellite countries as well the Japanese militarists not too mention the south Korean puppets. The US imperialists used barbaric methods of warfare exceeding those of the Hitlerlite Nazis. They used germ and chemical warfare and carried out horrendous massacres. All these failed to subdue the Korean people who under the wise leadership of the great revolutionary leader Marshal Kim Il Sung achieved a great victory. The forces of the heroic KPA defeated the so called "Invincible US 24th Division", taking its commander General Dean prisoner. Dean was the first US general to be captured by an opposing side. The KPA turned Height 1211 into a hill of heartbreak for the US imperialist aggressors.

   The KPA and Korean people fought in the revolutionary spirit of self- reliance based on the Juche Idea.The great revolutionary leader Marshal Kim Il Sung stated“We must solve our problems no matter who is helping us and what help we get......Victory must be won by our strength” " It was their efforts that were primary in defeating the US imperialist aggressors"
   In the Fatherland Liberation War commanded by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung ,the reactionary bourgeois military theory was smashed by the Juche- orientated revolutionary military strategy and theory. Generalissimo Kim Il Sung continually stressed that the outcome of war is not determined by weapons or technology but by those who wield the weapons. The Fatherland Liberation War was a burning crucible of Songun. The victory of the Korean people led by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung shattered  revisionist and pacifist theories about peaceful co-existence and 'non-violence'
 The Korean People's Army commanded by the great leader generalissimo Kim Il Sung was a true people's army, an army of justice and liberation. It assisted  the people . A strong spirit of Army-People unity prevailed throughout  society. Summing up the significance of the victory in the Fatherland Liberation War. The great revolutionary leader Marshal  Kim Il Sung said
"In this great struggle our people fought determinedly as one in mind under the correct leadership of the party and government and thereby withstood the harsh trials of war honourably and won a historic victory inflicting an ignominious defeat on US imperialism and its running dogs"
The great leader comrade Kim Jong Il said
 "It was a great revolutionary war of worldwide significance, a war in which our people defended their motherland and inflicted the first-ever defeat on US imperialism, the ringleader of world imperialism, by waging a national, heroic struggle."
 Dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un said that the victory in the Fatherland Liberation War " was a military miracle unprecedented in the war history of mankind and a great feat of historical significance never seen before in the nation's history spanning 5 000 years."
     The Fatherland Liberation War ended in victory due to the Juche orientated military tactics, Juche-orientated military thought and Songun revolutionary leadership of the great leader supreme commander generalissimo Kim Il Sung and the sublime heroism of the KPA. The myth of US invincibility was smashed to smithereens in the Fatherland Liberation War.  The victory in the Fatherland Liberation War inspired national liberation and revolutionary movements all over the world to struggle against the colonial system of the US-led imperialists bringing about an era of decline for  US imperialism  an era of anti -imperialism . US imperialism's defeat in Korea preceded its defeat in Vietnam and elsewhere. The Korean people's victory in the Fatherland liberation war was a great contribution to the world revolutionary movement as it showed that US imperialism could be stopped in its tracks and beaten.                  
   Glory to the Korean people and the KPA on the occasion of the 66th anniversary of the victory in the great Fatherland Liberation War against the US imperialists.

Superiority of Juche-based , popular democratic local elections in People's Korea


Local elections have just taken place in People's Korea yesterday (21st of July) . The people of the DPRK elected new deputies to provincial (municipal), city (district) and county people's assemblies which will democratically run local government in the DPRK.
99.98 per cent of electors voted . Compare to this to the average turnout of 35 per cent in local elections for England in 2018 .
People in the DPRK vote in elections because they have a genuine stake in society , they are exercising people's power rather deciding on which incompetent is going to put up council tax . In the DPRK deputies to local people's assemblies are not just representatives of the people , they are servants of the people.

Genuine Welfare Policy Impossible in Capitalist Society: Rodong Sinmun

Pyongyang, July 21 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Sunday stresses in an article that it is an out-and-out deception and daydream to build a "welfare society" in capitalist countries where the gap between the rich and the poor is extremely widening and all sorts of social evils are rampant.

The article says that the building of "welfare society" much touted by politicians in capitalist countries is nothing but an advertisement for covering up the inequality and anti-popular nature of the capitalist society.

It goes on:

A tiny handful of capitalists suppress and dominate the popular masses in the capitalist society. The state power is seized by monopoly capitalists and reactionary ruling quarters serving them.

There is no representative of workers and peasants in parliaments of capitalist countries. The same is true of governmental organs.

Politicians in capitalist countries are all mouthpiece for the interests of business giants and their servants.

They make all sorts of pledges during presidential and parliamentary election campaigns to curry favor with electors, but deny all of them after taking power.

Class antagonism and conflict reach an extreme in the capitalist society.

It is self-evident that capitalists can never have mercy on the working masses as the former remains hostile to the latter.

Therefore, the enforcement of genuine welfare policy for the people is impossible in the capitalist society. -0-

KCNA Commentary Hits Japan for Its Unreasonable Restrictions on Exports to South Korea

Pyongyang, July 19 (KCNA) -- Amid the ever mounting anti-Japanese sentiment in south Korea over the restrictions on exports to south Korea, the chief Cabinet Secretary of Japan said on July 16 that the restrictions were not a retaliatory measure but they were taken for "appropriate control of exports aimed at security".

His remarks are no more than vague explanation made by the guy who was upset by bitter public protest against issues like "suspicions of south Korea's exports of strategic materials to north Korea", all of which Japan described as pretexts for the restrictions after the south Korean court decisions ordering Japanese companies to compensate victims of forced labor during Japan's colonial rule.

Question is, just how the Japanese authorities explained, why they chose the present juncture for the restrictions on exports to south Korea.

Externally Japan finds itself isolated in the international arena, marginalized by the trend of peace in the Korean peninsula and the region, and faces an important political event, that is, the election of the House of Councilors at home.

It can be said that now is a crucial political moment for the Japanese politicians.

The Japanese reactionaries versed in drawing water to their mill at the sacrifice of others try to sacrifice south Korea, which they consider as an entity easy to deal with in the region, in a bid to get rid of their crisis at home and abroad.

And they are trying to destroy the trend of peace on the Korean Peninsula by putting pressure upon south Korea through the restrictions in a bid to create a political atmosphere favorable for realizing their wild militaristic ambition.

Furthermore, they seek to attain a medium- and long-term goal to deal a blow at the south Korean economy, arouse dissatisfaction at the authorities among south Koreans and thus help the south Korean pro-Japanese traitors, who were driven into a tight corner, come back to power.

On the other hand, they have carefully calculated to make their master undesirous of the aggravated south Korea-Japan ties consider the interests of Japan marginalized over the issue of the Korean peninsula.

They also seek to give a positive impact on the unity of and support for the rightwing forces at home through tightened restrictions on exports to south Korea so as to hold elections of the House of Councilors without difficulties and realize their long-desired aims including the revision of the Constitution.

Doing so will suffice Japan's political and diplomatic interests to help it make up for the loss from the deteriorating south Korea-Japan relations.

South Korean media and civic and public organizations stage a courageous struggle to lay bare the shameless sinister aim of Japan and protest against the unreasonable retaliatory economic measures.

This is the eruption of towering hatred and anger of the south Koreans towards the Japanese reactionaries attempting to wreck the hard-won peace in the Korean peninsula and the region by realizing their sinister political ambition at the sacrifice of south Korea.

All the fellow countrymen should take this opportunity to properly show the sworn enemy the strong spirit and mettle of the Korean people who love justice and never tolerate injustice. -0-

Japan Should Atone for its Past Crimes for Its Future: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, July 19 (KCNA) -- The shamelessness of Japan denying its past criminal history has reached the extremes.

As it is known, the Japanese authorities responded to a south Korean court's ruling for reparation to the victims of the forcible drafting with such economic retaliatory measure as restrictions on exports to south Korea.

Japan totally denied the decision that targeted private businesses and responded to it with state retaliatory measure.

This is a clear revelation of Japan's intention not to make any acknowledgement, repentance and reparations for the thrice-cursed crimes committed by the Japanese imperialists against the Korean nation in the past.

So tremendous crimes did Japan commit against history and humanity.

In the past century, the Japanese imperialists deprived Korea of its sovereignty. They abducted and drafted a lot of Koreans to drive them to the sites of slave labor and wars of aggression, massacred more than one million and enforced the sexual slavery for their imperial army to reduce 200 000 Korean women into "preys" for its lecherous soldiers.

Every page of Japan's crime-woven history is stained with the blood of the Korean nation.

Japan can never compensate fully to the Korean nation for human, material and moral damage, even though it offers its whole territory.

This being a fact, the Japanese reactionaries are doggedly sidestepping the settlement of the past, far from making a thorough apology and reparation to the Korean people, but are justifying the heinous crimes.

What cannot be concealed is the Abe group's sinister intention to create a political climate favorable to the forthcoming election for the House of Councilors and the militarist revival by fleeing from the past crimes forever and diverting elsewhere the domestic criticism focused on it.

Japan is legally and morally obliged to atone for its crime-woven past before the Korean nation and humanity.

The Japanese reactionaries are shamelessly calling for dialogue, though they are keen on committing sins only to anger the Korean nation.

Firm is the stand and will of the DPRK on the issue of Japan's atonement for its past crimes.

Japan has to make a proper apology and reparation for all the damage and suffering it inflicted on the Korean nation and it should clearly understand that without the apology and reparation, it will never get a ticket for Pyongyang.

Japan should atone for its crime-woven past for its future. -0-
