Kim Jong Un Inspects Chongjin Bag Factory

Pyongyang, July 17 (KCNA) -- The respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un inspected the Chongjin Bag Factory.

In recent years he established production processes of materials for manufacturing bags including cloth and zip capable of satisfying the needs of the country one by one and, on the basis of them, set forth the task for pushing ahead with the work to successfully build an independent factory for production of schoolbags in every province and to mass-produce and supply bags of good quality with supplied materials as an important policy.

However, the North Hamgyong Provincial Party Committee did not sincerely accept the Party's policy on newly building a bag factory in line with the capacity while disregarding the work initiated by the Party to provide all necessary things for the schoolers with our own products, giving top priority to the education for the generations to come. It offered shabby rooms of the building at the Chongjin Regenerated Fibre Factory for a bag production base and thus caused great anxiety to Kim Jong Un who came to the factory to learn about the bag production in localities.

The Supreme Leader pointed out that the Provincial Party Committee is working in a perfunctory manner, disregarding an important policy to be prioritized by it and that its attitude toward the acceptance and implementation of the Party policy is very wrong and the committee has no revolutionary spirit and responsible attitude of working hard to implement the Party policy.

Looking round the sample room of the factory, he said that the factory's level of producing bags is high though its production began one and half a year ago and the skills of its employees are high and that the bags are diverse in color and size and they were well made with much care according to the ages.

He said it is necessary to make the shoulder straps of bags with thicker sponge, noting that they should be made with twice thicker sponge than now so that their users may not feel pain

Stressing the need to strive for further raising the quality of bags, he said that the central factories responsible for production of raw materials should produce the accessories of bags such as cloth, zip and tape with locally available materials and ensure their production on a high level.

He called for qualitative and meticulous sewing to produce quality bags so that they should not get unfastened or ripped though children and pupils handle them at random.

It is necessary to further reduce the bag production cost, he said, giving an instruction to reexamine the price of school things including Mindulle notebooks and bags being supplied to pupils.

Saying that even though the state has more burdens, it should not give inconvenience to the people, he stressed it is needed to correct the price after listening to the view of inhabitants.

He charged that there is a problem in the work of the Provincial Party Committee as it has not yet built a design room, paying no attention to a poor products show room.

Noting that he gave an instruction for provincial party committees to build a schoolbag factory in a responsible manner in every province and learned about the construction of bag factories in some provinces and they are considerably different in level, he said such difference should be considered as a gap in the officials' ideological attitude toward the Party policy, not difference in the economic power of provinces.

The overall economy of the country can vigorously progress when North Hamgyong Province with great industrial potentials stands up, he said, expressing belief that the Provincial Party Committee would rectify its faults as soon as possible and wage a dynamic struggle for implementing the Party policies and thus build up the province into a reliable key industry zone of the country and bring about a radical turn in improving the people's living standard.

He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, Jo Yong Won, O Il Jong and Kim Yong Su, senior officials of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea. -0-

ASSPUK, JISGE , UK KFA and BSCRKP call for abolition of south Korean "Defence Security Command "


http://www.uk-songun.com/index.php email juche007@yahoo.co.uk          
                                                       16th of July 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 concerning the revelations that a massacre of peaceful protestors was planned in south Korea:
   It has been recently revealed in south Korea,the former puppet fascist dictator Park Geun Hye who was deposed in 2017  had planned to use force and violence against the Candlelight marchers who were protesting against her corrupt fascist rule.
The "Defense Security Command"(DSC)planned to  open fire on the protesters and to declare martial law.
  Had Park Geun Hye not been deposed last year, a bloody massacre of peaceful protestors would have taken place , it would have been the 2nd Kwangju massacre
 The  DSC also had the relatives of the victims of the Sewol ferry accident blacklisted and supervised.The DSC  still targets the activists of the patriotic pro-reunification movement and is engaged in hostile confrontational propaganda against People's Korea
Park Geun Hye criminal  plans  for a massaacre of innocent protestors are remeniscent  her notorious father, the fascist military dictator Park Chung Hee
Only the timely overthrow of Parkcould prevent a bloodbath in south Korea.
  It is time for the current "liberal  regime" to finally and completely abolish teh  fascist "National Security Law," which represses and criminalizes the pro-reunification movement.Such a step would realise the ideas of the Panmunjom declaration of the 27th of April 2018
We are appalled, outraged and stunned at the monstrous criminal intent to massacre the demonstrators, and demand the strictest punishment of Park as well as the bosses of the "Defense Security Command".
Abolish the DSC
Abolish the NSL

ASSPUK, JISGE , UK KFA and BSCRKP on the 65th anniversary of the Korean People's Victory in the Fatherland Liberation War

              16th of July 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 65th 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;
   65 years the 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 65th anniversary of the victory in the great Fatherland Liberation War against the US imperialists.


Speech made by Dr Dermot Hudson to the meeting Working for Peace on the Korean Peninsula July 1st 2018

The recent summit between the supreme leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), respected Marshal KIM JONG UN , the chairman of Workers Party of Korea and the US president Donald Trump has caught the attention of everyone  and is a very hot topic.  The people of the world are pleased that the danger of a destructive nuclear war has been avoided thanks to the peace loving efforts of People's Korea and the world is breathing a most heartfelt sigh of relief . Moreover it is a startling fact that Trump was forced to sit down and sign a joint statement with the DPRK a country that only 9 months ago he was saying that he would destroy it with fire and fury . In fact successive US regimes have all had regime change and the destruction of People's Korea as their agenda both overtly and covertly . The US unleashed the Korean War in the 1950s and imposed sanctions on the DPRK  for decade after decade so here was the US finally giving the DPRK some recognition and legitimacy !
   Although the ordinary people have welcomed the DPRK-US summit and the joint statement , however it has been attacked by US ruling class and establishment through their media . A shadowy and enigmatic cabal of so-called "NGOs " , journalists , overpaid academics, so-called "strategic experts " and politicians are opposing the joint statement , jumping up and down making noise . A bizarre and unholy alliance of extreme right wing neo-Cons on the one hand and trendy liberals on the other hand has been formed and  is opposing the agreement .Amongst those sympathetic and supportive of the DPRK  a small minority of people have expressed unease and worry about what will happen to the DPRK . Some are asking  will Trump keep his promises to DPRK ? Will the agreement hold ? .
    What is needed is an analysis of the reasons why the US decided to de-escalate tensions with the DPRK and why the most unprecedented step of holding the DPRK-US summit was taken  ? As Trump himself said the DPRK-US summit avoided a nuclear war in which millions would die.
   Thanks to the Songun policy and the line of building up a nuclear deterrent People's Korea has emerged as a nuclear power , a strategic state . In reality  the US was begging the DPRK to hold dialogue with them  scared by the prospect of a nuclear  war. Last year the DPRK crossed the nuclear finishing line and became both a nuclear power and an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile(ICBM)  possessing power.
   The DPRK is said to possess between 20 to 60 nuclear warheads although this has never been confined . A limited nuclear strike of the DPRK consisting of 3 or 4 warheads would probably kill a 100 times or more the number that were killed in the September 11th incident of 2001 . Also even a limited nuclear strike by the DPRK could wreck or disable the electronic and virtual infrastructure  of the entire imperialist world. At the same time a war on the Korean peninsula would have  been tremendously destructive and would have seen  billions of dollars of US investments in south Korea including Trump's own investments , completely incinerated  . Despite talk by some hotheads and extremists in the US , the last thing the US wanted was a war with the DPRK . It had to be avoided at all costs.
    Basically this shows that the Songun revolutionary line developed by the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL  and carried forward by dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN was correct and also the policy of developing nuclear deterrence . It meant that respected Marshal KIM JONG UN went into the negotiations with Trump from a position of strength. The DPRK did not go into the negotiations with the US empty-handed but as a nuclear power.
  There is another reason why the US entered into negotiations with the DPRK .The other plank in the US's anti-DPRK maximum pressure strategy was sanctions . In the past few years the US piled on sanction after sanction against the DPRK  either unilaterally or through the UNSC security council. In the past 18 months the US imposed sanctions on the DPRK 12 times through Treasury Department and State Department targeting 65 individuals, 56 entities and 45 vessels of the DPRK, and 32 entities, 12 individuals and 9 vessels of other countries allegedly involved in transactions with the DPRK; 219 designations in total. Since 2006 the UN Security Council has imposed many sets of sanctions against the DPRK . The sanctions against the DPRK both by the US and UNSC failed to stop the DPRK from developing nuclear weapons and ICBMs. . Each time there was a DPRK nuclear test or a major ICBM test , the US and UNSC would impose more sanctions but the DPRK continued testing missiles and nukes . The sanctions became a joke . Moreover the sanctions failed in their hidden aim of economically strangling the DPRK  and destroying the socialist system of the DPRK . The DPRK undertook the construction of Mirae Scientists Street , Ryomyong Street , the gigantic
Sci-Tech Complex and many other projects. Even some ill-disposed bourgeois imperialist experts conceded that the DPRK economy was growing . So the sanctions policy that was meant to bring the DPRK to its knees and destroy its system  turned out to be a miserable failure.
   Thus the US had no choice but to enter into negotiations with the DPRK  including holding the first ever DPRK-US summit .
  Of course there should be no room for complacency .The imperialist mainstream  media in the US and Britain has been very hostile to the summit and its outcome. There is an unholy alliance of extreme neo-cons  and liberals  who are opposed to the DPRK-US summit including politicians from both sides in the US  .A shadowy anti-DPRK cabal  of NGOs , academics , journalists and politicians  exist. There is a danger of the DPRK-US  joint statement being either  voided , revised  or diluted  which could cause the situation to return to one of extreme tension, US troops remain in south Korea and a permanent peace treaty has yet to be signed . Therefore it devolves on  UK KFA to step up the campaign to defend People's Korea and Juche-based socialism as well as campaigning for the withdrawal of US troops from south Korea and a permanent peace treaty.
  One issue that might arise is that the US could attempt to indulge in hard or aggressive engagement of the DPRK and put forward demands for the DPRK’s civil nuclear power industry to be frozen or closed down , therefore we may need to campaign to defend the DPRK’s right to independent nuclear power.
  Although there is the possibility of the DPRK-US joint statement being ditched at the same time imperialist tactics towards the DPRK may undergo a long term change and may switch to the strategy " peaceful conversion " , "building bridges " etc. ( as tried in the old USSR and Eastern Europe )in an attempt to destroy socialism in People's Korea in new ways . In this case we must defend the Juche-based socialist system .However  none of this detracts from the fact that it was the DPRK's strength and the tactics of respected Marshal KIM JONG UN that pushed the US to the negotiating table.

KIM IL SUNG on Juche and internationalism


Our adherence to the Juche Idea does not in any way mean that we have become chauvinistic .The Juche Idea we advocate does not conflict with internationalism . Instead it is designed to promote internationalism for it leads to the development of sciences and the building of the economy to suit our particular conditions and thus contributes to increasing the strength of our country and the might of the socialist camp as a whole "
