26 Years of Great Leader Comrade Kim Il Sung’s Passing- speech of the Brazilian Centre for the Study of Songun Politics to the online meeting to remember President Kim Il Sung

                             

Today, the 7th July of the year 2020, we remember the 26 years of the passing of the Great Leader Comrade Kim Il Sung. We’ve been living difficult times, that are daily intensifying. Not only in Brazil, but all over the world, with an even stronger economical crisis in several countries, the increasing of poverty, hunger, the suppression of labor and social rights, and also the growth of fascist ideologies in politics. This pandemic is showing us the true face of capitalism, company owners, politicians and the so said “countries leaders” and “presidents”. People are not their aim, and they are making it clear for us everyday. Many political groups don’t seem to think on something to do about that, and just talk. Some, don’t even have a model, someone to think about as an example of what to do. In this date, we should remember Comrade Kim Il Sung as an example and model, and here’s why:

The Korean Peninsula was dominated by the Japanese empire in 1910, in an extremely repressive and violent regime, which was a real nightmare in the lives of Koreans. Imagine not being able to speak your own language, practice your own culture and customs, traditional religion, having to adopt a name in the colonizer language instead of yours, being considered a sub-citizen, being enslaved in many ways, seeing horrendous things with your own eyes, practiced by people who simply took possession of the territory and identity that belonged to you? That was what happened at that time. Two years after the beginning of this domination, a boy was born from a peasant family who grew up in this reality. At the age of fourteen, he could not bear to go through any of this anymore (at that time you became an adult early, especially because of the way they treated Koreans) and decided to join boys of his own age to fight against this empire. His desire to change everything, which scholars in his life call “will of steel”, made him succeed in awakening in people the desire to overthrow the Japanese empire and free them from all this horror. In a short time, there were already a few hundred people in a true guerrilla army that, under the command of this young boy (I repeat, with only fourteen years old) managed to lead the battle that removed the colonizer from their lands. Its affiliation with the ideology of Marxist socialism added to this struggle against imperialism the goal of the total liberation of the Korean people, and the establishment of a popular government, in the models of Marx and Lenin. This young man, comrade Kim Il Sung, after all these significant battles managed, with his revolutionary army, to make this ideology a reality, raising more and more arms in the struggle for the final victory.

Even with imperialism (this time as a new enemy: the Americans) trying to counter extremely cowardly attacks, which claimed the lives of many of his brothers and sisters in Korea, the Great Leader of that battle, Comrade Kim Il Sung, managed exceptionally to command his great popular army to end this threat. And not only did he win, but the imperialists had to make an armistice agreement to stop the combats, and divide the peninsula into two sides: north and south. Now, President Kim Il Sung led the newly founded country with great strength, firmly, and putting people first because, according to him, “people are my God”. He performed incredible feats to increase the quality of life of his people, and he was successful. His will of steel did not allow imperialism to attack his country again, despite all the threats and sanctions, and his ideas of self-determination and self-sufficiency (which he called Juche) were what made this nation prosper. Kim Il Sung was a man devoted to the people, to the revolution, and his routine was only the growth of the people as a nation, and as owners of their own destiny. He made friends with leaders of different nations, even though he did not agree in many points with the ideologies of many of them, he won everyone's sympathy and helped them on their way for the progress of their peoples, as well as receiving help for this. He was a highly respected revolutionary leader, and considered an example for all those who followed the same path.  His revolutionary contributions were vitally important to the whole world. He sent aid to countries struggling for independence in Africa, Asia and the Americas and believed in the cause of people far from Korea when no one yet believed in victory. Thanks to President Kim Il Sung, several countries have freed themselves from colonialism and the world has become a better place.

The fact that the Democratic People's Republic of Korea is still standing today defending its Revolution is the final proof that the Juche Idea, developed by President Kim Il Sung, is the right line and his leadership was correct to materialize the revolutionary cause of the people Korean. In this year in which we remember the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Workers' Party of Korea, the result of President Kim Il Sung's work, his memory is even more acclaimed as the memory of a unique and unforgettable personality.


Comrade Kim Il Sung is the eternal Sun of Humanity!

Comrade Kim Il Sung, even having disappeared physically, remains alive in the hearts of all Koreans and revolutionaries across the planet to this day. His high ideals of building a new, free and independent world continue as the noblest revolutionary thoughts ever defended in Humanity. He was a true sun that lit up Korea and the world at a time when fascism and imperialism threatened working people.


In times of difficulty, ideas are not very clear, and we end up wanting to give up many things. But, we must always remember that we are the masters of our own destiny, we have all the strength to shape and modify it the way we want, because we are powerful, and masters of our own path. This is the lesson that this Great Leader leaves for us, and left throughout his life, in examples and more examples that serve us all today. To end difficult times, let us develop the strength of revolutionary leaders, and model ourselves on good examples, such as that of Great Leader comrade Kim Il Sung! Let us develop the will of steel!

Speech on the 90th anniversary of the Kalun Meeting and the work ' The Path of the Korean Revolution '

One basic misunderstanding about the Juche idea ,even among friends of People’s Korea is that it only began in the mid 1960s or in 1955 when President KIM IL SUNG made the speech ‘ On Eliminating Dogmatism and Formalism and Establishing Juche In Ideological Work’ ( something which some people on the British left need to do )
.
  In fact Juche goes back to the historic Kalun meeting of June 1930 and the speech ‘ The Path of the Korean Revolution’
President KIM IL SUNG addressed a meeting of the leading activists and cadres of the Young Communist League of Korea and the Anti-Imperialist Youth League . In those days the Korean people were looking for a new way to successfully conduct the revolutionary struggle for independence and national liberation as well as the struggle for class liberation .
 In the past bourgeois nationalists had tried to conduct the independence movement by relying on big powers and also just among a few top-level leaders . The emergence of the communist movement in Korea had proved to be a false dawn because it quickly split into rival factions who competed against each other for recognition from the Communist International  and did not conduct revolutionary struggle among the masses . People groaned in despair.
    The young President KIM IL SUNG keenly realised that this was not the way forward . He stressed that the Korean revolution should be carried out independently and by relying on the popular masses.
 In his speech  'The Path of the Korean Revolution  ' he explained his ideas and put forward the Juche -orientated line of the Korean revolution.
In the speech he castigated the factionalists and flunkeys saying that
“Experience shows that in order to lead the revolution to victory, one must go among the masses of people and organize them, and solve all problems arising in the course of the revolution independently on one’s own responsibility in accord with the actual conditions, instead of relying on others."
 Drawing on this lesson we regard it as most important to take the firm standpoint that the masters of the Korean revolution are the Korean people and that the Korean revolution should by all means be carried out by the Korean people themselves in a way suited to the actual conditions of their country.
   This is the basis of the Juche idea and its starting point. The idea that the masses are the masters of the revolution was first voiced at Kalun in 1930 . President KIM IL SUNG stressed that “ The masters of the revolutionary struggle are the masses of the people, and only when they are organized and mobilized can they win the revolutionary struggle.”.
  President KIM IL SUNG also defined the Korean revolution as being an anti-imperialist , anti-feudal democratic revolution rather than as being  a socialist revolution or a bourgeois revolution.
  In the speech President KIM IL SUNG set forth the revolutionary line of armed struggle,  the original line of the anti-Japanese national united front and Juche-oriented policy of party founding for the first time in the history of the national liberation struggle in colonial countries, and dynamically led the revolution along the road of Juche.
  Since then the Korean revolution has never looked back and never marked time. Thanks to the correct line set down at the Kalun meeting , the line of Juche , the Korean people gained independence and built an independent socialist power of Juche .
It can be said that the Juche Idea was first proclaimed to the world  in the speech made at Kalun .
  Today People's Korea  is advancing under the banner of the Juche idea  smashing the sanctions of the US-led hostile forces

Speech Made by Dr Dermot Hudson to the online seminar to remember the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG 07.07.2020

I remember that fateful day in July 1994 when the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG left us  . I first heard the news that the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG had passed away on the 9th of July when I was visiting my mother's house at Winchester, Hampshire. It was announced suddenly and abruptly on the Radio . I did not believe the news reports , I thought they must be false. When I  heard the stark announcement my heart beat fast and I felt ill. I walked up my mother's garden to calm down. After all only a few days before on Sunday the 3rd of July I had returned from People's Korea travelling via Beijing , China. We had actually left the DPRK on Saturday 2nd of July . Our visit to the DPRK had been very successful .During our visit , virtually each day we saw the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG on the tv giving either giving on-the spot guidance or meeting foreign guests  such as Ludo Martens the then head of the Workers' Party of Belgium . Each time he met foreign guests on tv the theme "Long live Marshal KIM IL SUNG" ! was played which gave a certain grandeur , a real sense of presence  He looked healthy and vigorous .To me it was impossible  and unimaginable that comrade KIM IL SUNG leave us  so soon.
   At 2am in the morning of the 8th of July 1994 comrade KIM IL SUNG had passed away suddenly whilst still at work even though it was 2am in the morning . I believe he had been working on documents about the economy and national reunification . When the news was announced by KCNA and DPRK TV people in the DPRK rushed  to the statues of the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG .They were in tears and some threw themselves to the ground , how could they be parted from President KIM IL SUNG ? A lot of people in the West totally fail to understand the reverence of the Korean people for the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG .As one Korean explained to me  they wore the badge with the image of the  President  with pride and devotion  because  without  the President there would no be no Korea . President  KIM IL SUNG  had fought the Japanese imperialists for more than a decade to win the independence of Korea and start to build a new nation. Indeed President KIM IL SUNG  was the father of  modern Korea and the founder of socialist Korea. Moreover he was like a father to the Korean people as he established a socialist system which gave them  full employment , free education , free health care , housing and many other things that in other countries are regarded as an impossibility. President KIM IL SUNG also worked for the independent reunification of Korea , in fact he had been planning a summit with the south Korean chief executive before he passed away . President KIM IL SUNG fought for world peace and global independence .  For the people of the DPRK losing President KIM IL SUNG was like losing their parents .

The reason why it seems like only yesterday that comrade KIM IL SUNG passed away rather than a quarter of a century ago , is that his memory burns brightly . Comrade KIM IL SUNG is alive as the   Juche idea, the idea of independence and self-reliance and alive in the pulsating reality of People's Korea .
                         
   The great leader President KIM IL SUNG worked all his life for the independence of the people. . He was a tireless fighter who battled against imperialism all his life, leading the Korean people first against the rapacious Japanese imperialists, then against the barbaric US imperialists . President KIM IL SUNG waged a 15 year long  armed struggle against the Japanese imperialists becoming a legendary general distinguished by his adroit guerrilla tactics.He gave the Korean people independence and liberation ,something that is so precious it cannot be bartered for billions of tons of gold bullion.
   President KIM IL SUNG was the ever-victorious iron-willed brilliant commander and gifted military strategist who defeated the US imperialist aggressors who had tried to crush People's Korea when it was in its cradle .Thus again he defended the independence of the people.
    Under the leadership of  the great leader President KIM IL SUNG ,two stages of revolution were carried out : the anti-imperialist,anti-feudal democratic revolution and the socialist revolution.He founded the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) , an unique socialist state of Juche centred on the popular masses ,a people's paradise.The DPRK has proved to be a most durable ,stable and harmonious socialist state.
                                 
                                     


    The great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG ensured that Rightist and Leftist deviations were avoided in the construction of socialism. Moreover socialism in Korea was not a copy of another country but Korean-style socialism, an independent Juche socialism. The DPRK upheld socialist principles when others introduced capitalist-style methods.
   Independence, independence and independence was the creed of the great leader President KIM IL SUNG . He authored the Juche Idea which lights the road of independence for the popular masses and teaches us that man is the master of everything .The Juche idea captivated the anti-imperialists and revolutionaries throughout the world .Thousands of seminars on the Juche idea have been held all over the world.
    The Songun idea initiated by the great leader generalissimo KIM IL SUNG  in  the fiery days of the anti-Japanese armed struggle  is based on the concept that independence is achieved by arms and the victorious revolution is defended by arms .The Songun idea , which has been implemented by the worthy successors of the great leader generalissimo KIM IL SUNG, eternal general secretary KIM JONG IL and dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN , is the treasured sword that defends the independence and dignity of People's Korea the bastion of world socialism.
   The great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG always struggled uncompromisingly against US led world imperialism . He upheld unity against division when the international communist movement and socialist camp suffered from sharp differences. The great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG held high the red flag of socialism when others abandoned it. He was a great revolutionary true to his faith until the very last moments of his life. President KIM IL SUNG put forward the line of global independence and was known as the sun of the world revolution.
  The great leader President KIM IL SUNG put forward  correct policies for independent national reunification as well for the south Korean revolution.
 We remember  great  President KIM IL SUNG as the eternal leader of the Korean people and WPK ,  the greatest of great leaders who was the author of the Juche idea, the benevolent liberator of the Korean people, the ever-victorious iron-willed commander and the outstanding leader of the world revolution. The ideas and cause of the great leader President KIM IL SUNG is being faithfully carried forward by dear respected leader  Marshal KIM JONG UN , who is identical to the great leader President KIM IL SUNG.
THE GREAT LEADER PRESIDENT KIM IL SUNG IS ALWAYS WITH US !

Dear Comrades,


It is an honour to be given the chance to speak about the life of Great Comrade Eternal President Kim Il Sung.


I’d like to begin by describing President Kim Il Sung in a few words, Comrade, Friend, Statesman and Father of the Korean People.


Whenever one watches videos of the Great Comrade Kim Il Sung giving field guidance or meeting heads of states, and friends of Korea he is always smiling. Comrade Kim Il Sung had the time for everyone, he was always working for the people improving their lives and making the people the strong willed people they are today.


As Comrade Kim Il Sung said “The people are my God”


The Great Comrade Kim Il Sung fought ferociously against Japanese imperialism as a young man. Even as a young man he was an inspirational man among the masses, wherever he went he brought people together for the greater good of man, woman and child.


When Comrade Kim Il Sung and the masses kicked out the Japanese imperialists from their land. He immediately started his work for the peaceful reunification of Korea!


From the start he was faced with many challenges but he rose above these challenges like a Great Leader does! I quote from a speech he gave at the 25th Meeting of the Central Committee of the Democratic National United Front of North Korea dated March 9th, 1948


“Friends,


By pressure from the US government, the “UN Little Assembly” adopted a resolution in February holding on holding a separate election in south Korea for the so called “national government of Korea”


The resolution of the “UN Little Assembly” is a reprint of the US resolution submitted by US Secretary of State Marshall.


According to the resolution the election for a separate government in south Korea will be held under the supervision of the “UN Commission on Korea” and the election regulations will become effective only when Lieutenant General Hodge, US army commander in south Korea approves them.


This illegal resolution serves the aggressive policy of US imperialists who wantonly trample on the sovereignty of the Korean people and try to perpetuate the division of our country”   


Great Comrade Kim Il Sung mentioned many times that the peaceful reunification of Korea is one that can only be achieved by the Korean people themselves without the interference from hostile forces with their anti communist agendas and imperialistic ideals. He had proposed the path towards reunification which was peaceful and realistic. I am sure Comrades you know the path which was planned out and I am sure you can agree it is one which all can agree on!



Comrade Kim Il Sung was a master of statesmanship in his life I recall his meetings with former US President Jimmy Carter and without a doubt one can tell that Jimmy Carter had changed his mind on President Kim Il Sung which he quoted saying President Kim Il Sung was a very sincere man and would listen to what he had to say.

Such statesmanship is why President Kim Il Sung is a master of statesmanship and indeed revered by the world for his statesmanship even to this very day!


We at the Juche Idea Study Group of Ireland remember Eternal President Kim Il Sung as not only the inspiration of our work but as a driving force behind our work. As we are facing a very uncertain time in the world due to COVID 19 I would like to end this speech with a quote from Comrade Kim Il Sung which he said “Pleasure follows hardship”


We will remember always the Great Comrade Kim Il Sung!


Korea is one!


Long live the Juche Idea!


Thank you for taking the time to listen to this Comrades

Commentary of AINDF spokesman- on US-sk military exercises in August and Covid 19

Commentary of AINDF spokesman

In recent, broad segments of south Koreans strongly demand suspension of south Korea-US joint military exercise scheduled to be conducted in August of this year.
It is a righteous assertion reflecting the unanimous will of the south Korean people from all social standings who know riskiness and seriousness of the joint war game destabilizing peace and security of the Korean Peninsula.
Nevertheless, the south Korean trigger-happy group is laying bare its intention to carry out the joint maneuver under the pretext of the return of wartime operation control, running counter to the public feelings. 
All the military rehearsals have been suspended due to worldwide spread of COVID-19 and ceasefire is proclaimed in dispute-torn areas.
The number of infection cases of COVID-19 is on the steady increase in south Korea. Moreover, COVID-19 cases are being confirmed among the US forces in south Korea.
It is beyond doubt that the joint military exercise would derail the situation of the Korean Peninsula as it is a military provocation against the same brethren.
The current situation goes to prove that the south Korean military group persist in the tension of the peninsula and inter-Korean confrontation, regardless of the people’s safety and peace of the peninsula.
It is quite natural that the south Koreans of various circles are calling for an immediate stop to the joint war game, the root of coiling up the tension of the Korean Peninsula, expressing their strong opposition to belligerent moves of the US and south Korean military.
The AINDF, together with the people desirous of peace, would launch a vigorous action against the military provocation pursued by the pro-US elements.
