Leader Kim Jong Il, Chairman of the National Defence Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, always found himself on the train and spent his lifetime in field guidance for the sake of the fatherland and people.
The data show that there have been 1 700 media reports on leader Kim Jong Il’s revolutionary activities since the demise of President Kim Il Sung, of which 160 are for the year of 2011 alone.
Thus leader Kim Jong Il worked so energetically all the year round until the last moment of his life despite of the sultry and cold weathers, that he could not recover from the fatigue and passed away to the deepest regret of the people.
From the first day this year he refused to rest and gave spot guidance to different fields of national economy regardless of his birthday and national holidays, thus leading the struggle to build a thriving socialist nation.
His last trip was also made to an establishment that would make contribution to the people’s life. He died of sudden heart attack on his way to another place for field guidance.
The Korean people grieved at the news of his death were even more anguished by the weather records of December 16 and 17 from the weather station, which said:
“The highest daytime temperature on December 16 and the lowest morning temperature on December 17 were the lowest ever recorded up to December 21, this year. The day’s temperature was the lowest in the past 26 years since 1985 ever recorded as the highest daytime temperature.”
His days of successive field guidance for the people were spent more in nasty days than in fair days
Wishing leader Kim Jong Il good health the Korean people would sing a song:
Snows and rains falling on this land
We are ready to go through
Lest you walk sloppy roads
But the last train he was on had to run in the coldest day of this year.
On December 17, 2011 leader Kim Jong Il, Chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK passed away too early of a sudden illness on a train on his way to field guidance for the people.
At the sad news of his death on December 19, the Korean people, who wanted to see him, were at a loss.
It was because there was no statue for them to cry their heart out looking up to.
In his lifetime leader Kim Jong Il saw to it that the President Kim Il Sung’s statues were erected everywhere in Korea thinking of the President only. But he refused erecting his own statue. He also denied the production of any feature film depicting him.
However earnestly the Korean people wanted, he did not walk onto the public forum in marshal’s uniform to deliver a speech receiving congratulations from the people.
Leader Kim Jong Un suggested making a celebrated picture of leader Kim Jong Il with broad warm smile wearing the field clothes he used to put on in his endless field guidance tour.
Artists are said to have completed his portrait, missing leader Kim Jong Il who was smiling broadly on blizzardy Mt. Paektu.
The portrait of leader Kim Jong Il was thus produced representing the burning desire of the KPA servicemen who would march proudly across the grand festival square upholding it together with that of President Kim Il Sung marking the 100th birthday of the President on April, 2012.
Nobody then expected it would be hung in a few days over the sea of tears of national mourning.
On Dec. 20 the portrait was to be found at many places in Pyongyang.
Those places were all of a sudden crowded with endless streams of people, roads and residential districts around them turning into the waves of people.
The smiling President Kim Il Sung’s picture, which was perfected under the direct guidance of leader Kim Jong Il and presented to the Korean people grieving at the death of the President Kim Il Sung 17 years ago, made all the people shed tears. His smile is still vivid in the hearts of the mankind.
Now the great leader Kim Jong Un prepared the picture of smiling leader Kim Jong Il for his people.
It was leader Kim Jong Un’s announcement that Kim Jong Il will always be with the people and his lifetime aspiration for building a thriving socialist state for the people will be realized at any cost.
Leader Kim Jong Il who devoted his all for the fatherland and people will live forever as the sun in the hearts of the mankind with his bright smile.
Leader Kim Jong Il, Chairman of the National Defence Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army, passed away on December 17, 2011 of acute disease on the way to field guidance.
Sites for mourning ceremony were established across the country. Lamenting bitterly over the sudden death of leader Kim Jong Il the Korean people felt all the more painful and unfilial, for they had not erected any statue of leader Kim Jong Il.
Here is a story how they could not set up his statue.
The Korean people, with deep respect and admiration for leader Kim Jong Il who achieved great exploits for the country and the people, had long since planned to erect his statue.
The issue became a matter of an utmost urgency entering 1999.
Letters from the servicemen of the Korean Peoples Army and the people, sent to the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea on the occasion of the 60th birthday of leader Kim Jong Il, unanimously called for the erecting of his statue. The Korean revolutionary veterans actively joined them, too.
The followers of the Juche idea and Songun idea as well as the progressive people fighting for socialism across the world also sent letters to leader Kim Jong Il suggesting it.
The Mansudae Art Studio, the top dignified fine art producer in Korea, made drafts for the statue and submitted them to the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea.
Leader Kim Jong Il, nonetheless, was opposed to any of them: he would never tolerate their suggestions.
Sharply criticizing those who were busy with setting up the statue, Kim Jong Il said: Now I think of nothing but how to reunify the country and build a thriving nation on this land carrying forward the revolutionary cause of the President. I wonder why you are so lost in the statue issue, which I myself don’t want.
Leader Kim Jong Il honored those who made contributions to the cause of country’s liberation, socialism and the building of a thriving nation as patriots and heroes and had their statues erected. He, however, never allowed anything for himself.
Leader Kim Jong Il was so humble a man that he dedicated his all for the people but wanted no honour nor fame.
Therefore the Korean people established the mourning sites with the portrait of leader Kim Jong Il hung at the places frequented by the masses.
Looking up to the portrait of leader Kim Jong Il smiling brightly like the sun, people cried and cried regretting their mistakes that they, taken up in happiness thanks to his warm care and solicitude, had not erected any statue of their leader.
But their tears were not the simple tears of lamentation and sorrow. They were the tears of firm determination to courageously overcome the grief to build at any cost a thriving nation, leader Kim Jong Il’s life-long aspiration, following respected leader Kim Jong Un.
Led by respected leader Kim Jong Un the Korean people will with credit carry on the Korean revolution to the end, the cause which had advanced victoriously under the leadership of leader Kim Jong Il.
London December 31 Juche 100(2011)
Today the ASSPUK , JISGE together with the UK Korean Friendship Association issued a statement in support of the joint calls made by the Central Committee and Central Military Commission of the Workers' Party of Korea on the occasion of the centenary of the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG, sun of Juche.
Although the DPRK suffered the greatest loss of the 21st century, this calls reflect the will and desire of the Korean people to turn sorrow into strength and celebrate with joy and splendour not only the 100th anniversary of the birth of the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG but also the 70th anniversary of the birth of the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL and the 80th anniversary of the glorious Korean People's Army founded by the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG.
The calls issued by the CC and CMC of the WPK will ensure that the DPRK and Korean people travel along the road of the Songun revolution and the Juche revolution as charted out by the great leaders comrades KIM IL SUNG and KIM JONG IL . They will win victories in carrying out the calls of the CC and CMC WPK under the leadership of the great successor
comrade KIM JONG UN.
The calls correctly stress the role of ideology. The Korean people will make the DPRK an even stronger ideological and political power , a veritable fortress of Juche repulsing all attempts from whatever quarter to undermine the political and ideological power of Juche.
"Frustrate the moves of ideological and cultural infiltration by the imperialists!Smash to pieces the practices that eat away at socialism! " This will hit back hard against the evil imperialist
reactionary forces trying to obliterate Juche-based socialism.
The calls made will also ensure that leading role of the Workers' Party of Korea in society is decisively increased and that it is built into a party strong in militancy and ideology. This is a powerful inspiration to the world's progressives as in many socialist countries the leading role of the Party was undermined and emasculated .
The CC and CMC of the WPK also call for the KPA and Korean people to resolutely smash for good the south Korean puppets if they ignite a war on the Korean peninsula and achieve national reunification. This will not only honourably defend Juche Korea and the people-centred socialist system but also achieve national reunification the decades old desire of the Korean people and also contribute to world peace by finally uprooting the source of war in north-east Asia.
The implementation of the calls of the WPK CC and CMC will decisively conribute to the building of a great prosperous , powerful socialist nation of Juche and building a people's socialist paradise in the 3,000 ri land of the Morning Calm.
The calls made by the CC and CMC of the WPK are a great inspiration to the Juche idea and Songun idea followers of the world as well all friends of the DPRK and people's who aspire to independence. We call on the Juche idea, Songun idea followers of the world to support, study and publicise them !
LONG LIVE THE GREAT JUCHE IDEA AND SONGUN IDEA
THE GREAT LEADER COMRADE KIM JONG IL IS IMMORTIAL

The joint calls are as follows:
Having seen out Juche 100 (2011) with the greatest national sorrow over losing too suddenly, too early and too regrettably the great leader Comrade

In the last 100 years an epochal change took place in our nation’s ideas and spirit and in the appearance, might and position of our country and a golden age of prosperity unprecedented in the 5 000-year history of our nation was ushered in under the wise leadership of the great leaders
Born of the working people in a simple straw-thatched house in Mangyongdae on April 15, Juche 1 (1912) and endowed with brilliant wisdom, outstanding leadership ability and ennobling virtues, which nobody had ever been possessed of, the great leader Comrade
He was an eminent ideo-theoretician and a great teacher who instilled in our people the ideological consciousness of independence and indomitable mental strength by authoring the immortal Juche idea, an ever-victorious, iron-willed commander who opened, by defeating two formidable imperialist powers, the way to revival for our nation when it was at the crossroads of life and death and a genius of revolution and construction who built on the debris a socialist country, independent, self-sufficient and self-reliant in national defence, by leading to victory two stages of social revolution, two rounds of reconstruction and several stages of socialist construction; his revolutionary exploits shine their brilliance in the 100-year history of Juche Korea.
He was not only the founding father of socialist Korea, he was the sun of the nation who provided the three charters and motive force for national reunification and gained exploits imperishable in the history of our nation’s reunification movement, and a pre-eminent leader of the world socialist movement and the lodestar of human emancipation who indicated the road of struggle for the progressive mankind by opening a new era of independence by means of the shining Juche idea and creating a worldwide model of revolution and construction.

In the face of the breakdown of the world socialist system, the passing away of the father of the nation, the vicious moves of the imperialist allied forces to encircle and suffocate the country and the severe natural calamities, he defended with honour the socialist gains, the valuable heritage bequeathed by the fatherly leader, by dint of Songun politics, and turned our country into an invincible political and ideological power based on single-hearted unity and a nuclear state with unrivalled military strength no enemy would dare challenge. This is shining as the greatest of his achievements.
By setting the ambitious goal of building a thriving country and vigorously making a high-intensity forced march for on-site guidance up until the last moment of his life, he stood in the van of an all-people advance for a great upsurge, ensured that the flames of the industrial revolution in the new century and the flames of Hamnam were spread across the country following the flames of Kangson, and thus opened a new vista for the building of an economic power.
He was held in boundless respect and high esteem by all the Korean people as the father of the nation and the lodestar of national reunification as he ushered in the June 15 reunification era by applying the noble ideal of By Our Nation Itself, and enjoyed high international prestige as a great defender of socialism and justice for the undying contributions he rendered to the world socialist movement and the cause of independence of mankind under the unfurled banner of anti-imperialist independence.
He was, indeed, a peerless patriot and the most outstanding veteran statesman in the present era, who, with the Supreme Headquarters on the frontline of the revolution, spent his whole life in the field, dedicating it entirely to the prosperity of his country, well-being of his people and the cause of global independence, thus accumulating achievements imperishable in the history of the Korean nation and mankind.
Despite the great feats he had performed for his country and people and for the times and history, the peerlessly great man disallowed setting up even one statue of his own, but his noble image and great exploits are enshrined in the hearts of our service personnel and people as a grand, eternal monument.

Pyongyang, December 31 (KCNA) -- The dear respected
Friday, 30 December 2011
London 30th December Juche 100(2011)
The ASSPUK , JISGE and UK KFA today issued a joint statement supporting the just and correct stand of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK as expressed in the statement of the 30th of December "Lee Myung Bak group of traitors accused of thrice cursed crimes.
The DPRK National Defence Commission statement gives a timely rebuff to the clamour of the imperialists and world reactionaries for "change " in the DPRK . Such "change" advocated by the foolish politicians of the imperialist allied camp simply means destroying the superior Juche-based socialist system centred upon the masses and restoring capitalism in the DPRK. This would bring misery to the people of the DPRK and mean the DPRK becoming a colony of US imperialism and international monopoly finance.
We also condemn the south Korean puppet traitors and flunkeys for insulting the memory of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il and refusing to allow ordinary south Koreans to send condolence delegations to the DPRK. The actions of the south Korean puppets are totally counter to basic morality and ethics and will do nothing to improve inter-Korean relations. We support and respect the stance of the DPRK NDC not to have relations with the dirty and evil scum of the Lee Myung Bak puppet clique.
Mention here needs to be made of the slanderous media coverage in countries of the imperialist West . The monopoly capitalist media slandered the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il even though he passed away and insulted Korean people in a racist manner. We denounce in particular the BBC (which should be known as the "British Brainwashing Corporation) for quoting so-called "defectors " during their coverage of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il's funeral.
We, ASSPUK , JISGE and UK KFA call for all Juche idea and Songun idea followers to rally around and defend the DPRK against the sinister moves of the world reactionaries and south Korean puppets.
VICTORY TO THE DPRK!
THE GREAT LEADER COMRADE KIM JONG IL IS IMMORTAL
LONG LIVE RESPECTED GENERAL KIM JONG UN
Thursday, 29 December 2011
The army and people of the DPRK lost the father of their large family on December 17 so suddenly and so early to their regret.
Their sorrow over the loss was so bitter and unbearable that the whole country turned into a veritable sea of mourners and even the mountains, rivers, plants and trees seemed to wail.
This is because leader Kim Jong Il was the great leader recognized by the world, iron-willed brilliant commander who defeated even the formidable enemies and tender-hearted father who brought up the servicepersons and people under his loving care.
Now not only the Korean people but the whole world will more keenly realize as the days go by what great and distinguished man they lost.
We feel grateful to the heads of state and party leaders, governments, organizations and personages of many countries of the world and compatriots at home and abroad for expressing profound condolences, sharing sorrow with us, and sending sincere sympathy and encouragement during the mourning period. We will never forget them.
When the whole nation is overcome with grief over the great loss, only the south Korean puppet group committed thrice-cursed crimes.
The DPRK National Defence Commission, above all, discloses before the world and the nation the truth about those crimes of the south Korean puppet group.
Though the country remains divided into the north and the south due to foreign forces, we are one nation.
The army and people of the DPRK, though suffering pain resulting from the division, have valued this homogenous nation more than anything else, always regarding as their faith the truth that the nation is above the ideology and system.
But this time the south Korean puppet group perpetrated such rash act as hurting the grief-stricken compatriots and rubbing salt into their wounds, determined to stop remaining as part of the nation of its own accord.
No sooner had the important report of the DPRK been released than the south Korean puppet group convened an emergency "state security meeting" and "state affairs meeting" and put even overseas missions on emergency alert duty, kicking off rackets to create the impression that a "contingency" was created as expected, and a "golden opportunity" presented itself to lead the north to "system change".
The south Korean authorities put the three services of the puppet army on an emergency alert and ordered them to adopt combat posture, creating a war-like atmosphere on the ground and in the seas and air. They let over 30 right-wing conservative reactionary organizations flock to the forefront areas to scatter anti-DPRK leaflets whose content was hurting the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK and inciting disturbance.
Traitor Lee Myung Bak spearheaded all these operations.
He sought to attain his foolish goal by taking the advantage of the mourning period, and if that fails, to lead the DPRK to "contingency" and "change of system".
From the olden times, it was considered inhumane to raise one's fist at the neighbor visited by misfortune and seek profits.
Even a foreign country which has no diplomatic relations with the DPRK stopped the planned military exercises being considerate of the sorrow of the army and people of the DPRK and set a mourning period to express condolences. In the light of this, the traitorous group's bullying acts can not but be viewed as one defying human ethics and morality.
Lee group's stepped-up show of enmity toward the DPRK culminated in its act of blocking south Koreans who wanted to visit Pyongyang to mourn the demise of leader Kim Jong Il.
South Koreans from all walks of life upon the news of Kim Jong Il's demise that came like a bolt from the blue strongly called for expressing condolences and dispatching mourners group regardless of whether they belonged to progressive or conservative camps and ruling or opposition parties.
The traitorous group of Lee turned down all the demands, describing south Koreans' request to express condolences as "sympathy to north's citizens separated from its regime". It banned the dispatch of mourners' group talking about "chaos of south Korean society". It foolishly tried to estrange the popular masses of the DPRK from its headquarters on one hand and totally ban the Pyongyang visits much hoped by broad south Koreans by taking the measures of "selected visits" and "restricting mourners groups" on the other hand.
Shared sorrow lessens while shared pleasure increases.
Expressing condolences and sending condolatory messages have been good manners and customs and ethical tradition peculiar to the Korean nation from the ancient times.
It is for this reason that we brand the evil act of the Lee group as treason bereft of elementary human reason and morality.
The group dared try to link the "final responsibility" for the warship "Cheonan" sinking and shelling on Yonphyong Island with the supreme leadership of the DPRK. They let loose such reckless remarks that the DPRK must present justifications for south Korea to move if it wants to have the "May 24 measure of the authorities" retracted and the north-south relations mended this time.
It is hideous crime that can never be pardoned in any case to dare hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK over its army's self-defensive shell-firing on Yonphyong Island for coping with preemptive provocation in the wake of the "Cheonan" warship sinking case which is not related to the DPRK.
The group of traitors even hatched a plot to prompt the DPRK make a "change", while talking about its non-existent "contingency" and "instability" of its dignified system and regime. This evildoing adds to the said crimes.
Upon joint authorization of the Party, state, army and people of the DPRK, the DPRK National Defence Commission clarifies the following principled stand on the group of traitors' hideous crimes committed at the time of the great misfortune of the nation:
As already declared, the DPRK will have no dealings with the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors forever.
To keep company with them is a disgrace for the clear and honest-minded Korean nation as they are ignorant in politics, vulgar in morals and lack elementary human nature.
We will surely force the group of traitors to pay for its hideous crimes committed at the time of the great national misfortune.
The veritable sea of tears shed by the army and people of the DPRK will turn into that of retaliatory fire to burn all the group of traitors to the last one and their wailing into a roar of revenge to smash the stronghold of the puppet forces.
The conservative media of south Korea would also face due punishment as they are backing and following the group of traitors in its treacherous act against humanity through false report, fabrication, speculation and presumption, oblivious of their mission to be fair speaker for the public and pioneer of true public.
The south Korean puppets and world reactionaries should no longer make a fool of themselves in their bid to lead the DPRK to "contingency" and make its "system instable", something unimaginable.
All the soldiers and people of the DPRK turned out to mourn the demise of leader Kim Jong Il since the announcement of his demise, an indication of the great unity of the party, army and people behind the headquarters of the revolution in single mind and invincibility of the Korean-style socialist system.
The army and people of the DPRK will unswervingly keep to the path of Juche indicated by Kim Jong Il true to the intention of President Kim Il Sung.
Taking this opportunity, we solemnly declare with confidence that the south Korean puppets and foolish politicians around the world should not expect any change from the DPRK.
The army and people of the DPRK will keep to the path of improving north-south relations and achieving peace and prosperity.
Mended north-south relations we want are not improvement based on "high-handedness" and "flexibility" as touted by Lee Myung Bak group of traitors or on crafty gimmick of those rhetorics.
The DPRK wants to improve relations with the south and bring peace and prosperity through the nationwide drive to implement the historic June 15 joint declaration and the October 4 declaration under the banner of independence, peace and reunification.
The world will see how the army and people of the DPRK win the final victory after turning their sorrow and tears into strength and courage, closely rallied behind the dear respected Kim Jong Un. -0-
Kim Il Sung Square was wrapped in a solemn atmosphere.
The dear respected Kim Jong Un, vice-chairman of the Central Military Commission of the WPK and supreme leader of the WPK, state and army, appeared on the tribune of honor.
Present there were members of the National Funeral Committee, Nam Sung U, vice-chairman of the Central Standing Committee of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan, officials of the party, state, armed forces and power bodies, public organizations, ministries and national institutions, men and officers of the KPA and the Korean People's Internal Security Forces, officials in the fields of science, education, culture, arts, public health and media, anti-Japanese revolutionary fighters, bereaved families of revolutionary martyrs, mourners delegations from all provinces, people of all social standings, a mourners delegation of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan, anti-Japanese revolutionary fighters in China, those related to the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle in China, families of Chinese related to the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle and their parties, mourners groups of overseas Koreans and other overseas Koreans, the chief of the Pyongyang Mission of the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front, diplomatic envoys of foreign countries, members of the military attaches corps and representatives of international organizations here and foreign guests.
All the participants in the memorial service observed a moment's silence in humblest reverence in memory of Kim Jong Il who worked heart and soul to accomplish the cause of building a thriving socialist nation till the last moments of his great life.
Kim Yong Nam, member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the C.C., WPK and president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly of the DPRK, made a memorial address.
Kim Jong Il, who devoted energies and tireless efforts to the accomplishment of the revolutionary cause of Juche, national reunification and global independence, passed away so suddenly and so early to our regret. This is the greatest loss to the WPK and the revolution and the biggest loss to the nation which no one could have ever imagined.
All the people, men and women of all ages, who suffered the greatest loss of the nation, unbelievable, visited the bier of Kim Jong Il and the mourning stations in the whole mourning period to mourn his demise in humblest reverence.
Born as the son of guerrillas in Mt. Paektu, the holy mountain of the revolution, Kim Jong Il led the revolution and construction to victory with his brilliant wisdom, outstanding ideas and theories, extraordinary leadership ability and noble virtues for a long period, performing the undying revolutionary feats for the country, the nation, the times and history.
He made a new history of accomplishing the cause of perpetuating the memory of President Kim Il Sung with his noblest revolutionary moral obligation, making sure that the lofty revolutionary life and feats of the President were enshrined in the hearts of the Korean people and mankind to shed rays forever.
The revolutionary career of Kim Jong Il was a history of a heroic epic of the Songun brilliant commander born of Heaven and peerlessly great man who defended the sovereignty of the DPRK and put the dignity of the country on the highest level while resolutely shattering the moves of the imperialist allied forces for sanctions, pressure and moves for a war with arms.
Not putting off a jumper all his life, he made forced marches with his indefatigable efforts for field guidance to bring a happy life to the Korean people, considering a day as ten, nay a hundred days. We can never forget this dedication and efforts made by him.
He was, indeed, an outstanding statesman, peerlessly great man and a great sage of the revolution who steadily advanced the Korean revolution along the road of victory.
Prompted by his noble mission to carve out the destiny of the country and the nation and the future of the revolution, he gave a steady continuity to the tradition of the revolutionary cause of Juche, the Songun revolutionary cause which started on Mt. Paektu.
He perfectly solved the issue of the succession to the leadership, the hardcore in succeeding to the revolutionary cause. This was the noblest feat he performed for the destiny of the country and the eternal prosperity of all generations to come.
Standing at the helm of the Korean revolution is Kim Jong Un, the successor to the revolutionary cause of Juche.
Kim Jong Un is the supreme leader of our party and army and people as he fully personified the ideas and leadership, personality, virtues, grit and courage of Kim Jong Il.
We will turn sorrow into thousand-fold strength and courage and tide over the present difficulties and more dynamically advance along the road of Songun indicated by Kim Jong Il under the leadership of Kim Jong Un.
We, who made a pledge in bitter tears before the bier of Kim Jong Il, will accomplish the cause of the Songun revolutionary cause, the cause of building a thriving socialist nation, holding Kim Jong Un in high esteem as another General and supreme leader.
The noble and august name of Kim Jong Il and his image with a broad smile on his face will shine for all ages and he will always live in the hearts of the servicepersons and people of the DPRK.
Kim Ki Nam, member of the Political Bureau and secretary of the C.C., the WPK, spoke at the memorial service on behalf of the WPK, Kim Jong Gak, alternate member of the Political Bureau of the C.C., the WPK and first vice director of the General Political Bureau of the KPA, on behalf of the KPA and Ri Yong Chol, first secretary of the C.C., the Kim Il Sung Socialist Youth League, on behalf of the youth and students.
While recollecting with deep emotion the immortal revolutionary career of Kim Jong Il and his revolutionary feats, dedication and efforts for the country and people, the servicepersons and people of the DPRK are keenly feeling once again under what great leader we have lived and struggled, the speakers said.
They made firm pledges to accomplish the historic cause of national reunification, the lifelong desire of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, without fail and carry to completion the revolutionary cause of Juche which started on Mt. Paektu generation after generation under the leadership of Kim Jong Un.
Similar memorial services took place in all provinces, cities and counties that day. -0-

In Defence of Songun Korea , the memory of the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL and the Songun revolutionary leadership
1)THE ROLE OF THE LEADER.
Modern revisionists mouth about the "cult of personality ". This was a term used by Khruschov to slander and vilify the late JV Stalin and the building of socialism in the USSR . Khruschov's so called secret speech to the 20th congress of the CPSU was leaked out to the imperialist countries and the term "cult of personality" became a stock in trade for anti-communist propagandists as well as revisionists and opportunists . The USSR and international communist movement suffered badly because of Khruschov's folly . The USSR swung right and a few decades later restored capitalism , that is where the theory of the "cult of personality" ends up. The essence of the theory of the so called "cult of personality" is an artificial separation of the leader from the masses. Bourgeois and revisionist commentators fail to realise that the leader is not an individual but the centre of unity of society.
Those who prate about the "cult of personality" are those who fail to see society as a collective, instead are influenced by a bourgeois concept of society which sees society as made up of atomised individuals, typically an extreme and nihilistic variant of these world outlook was expressed by ex premier M Thatcher who once claimed that "there is no such thing as society"
Indeed the leader is the supreme brain of the revolution , the supreme brain of society . Society is like a living organism or a body. The brain requires a brain , a body without a brain would be impossible . Yet some people think you can have a body without a brain. No one thinks of the brain enslaving their own body.
In the DPRK the masses , the party and the leader form an integral and harmonious whole the like of which has never been witnessed in any exploitative capitalist society and not in any revisonist countries either . People in the DPRK are united in a single heart and a single mind, they move as one.
2)DEMOCRACY, MASSES AND LEADER
Some of the sillier and most offensive propaganda comes from the imperialist media such as the BBC which talk of "state organised mourning" , this insults the pure feelings of Korean people grieving for the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il. It is possible to force people some things such as go to work but it is impossible to force people to cry . Some so called "leftists " join hands with them such forces complaining about a "concentration of power" and "hereditary principle" . Such people ignore the fact that comrade Kim Jong Un was elected vice-chairman of the Central
Military Commission of the Workers' Party of Korea at a party conference in September 2010. The WPK has over 3 million members, most families in the DPRK have party members within them. So basically Kim Jong Un's appointment as successor to the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il was democratically decided by a large number of people so there is no parallels with monarchies. Some foolish people speak of "feudalism " but in a feudal society organs like the Supreme People's Assembly and local people's assemblies simply wont not exist nor would the Workers' Party of Korea. Feudalism is defined simply by the Freedictionary Online as "political and economic system of Europe from the 9th to about the 15th century, based on the holding of all land in fief or fee and the resulting relation of lord to vassal and characterized by homage, legal and military service of tenants, and forfeiture.". In the DPRK feudal landlordism was abolished in 1946 by the Agrarian Reform law , which redistributed free of charge all land over 5 hectares ,one of the most radical land reforms in history Those who talk about "feudalism" are not only extremely ignorant of the DPRK's history and struggle only very ignorant of the DPRK's history and struggle but actually lack a Marxist understanding(just how can and when did feudal production relations come back when they had been abolished), just how stupid can revisionist and Trotksyite blockheads be ! The DPRK is often judged through the prism of imaginary socialist societies envisaged in failed revisionist programmes ( in 1951 we had the "British Road to Socialism" supposedly a creative application of Marxism, 60 years later we are still waiting for socialism)
In the DPRK organs of power such as the Supreme Peoples Assembly, provincial and city peoples assemblies are elected by direct and equal suffrage. The voting age is 17 years old. Usually in the DPRK the turnout for elections is virtually 100% (compare this to turnouts of 60% or 70% in capitalist countries or even less than 20% in local elections). Voting in the DPRK is seen as a demonstration of unity and harmony in which everyone participates, people even dance at polling stations, every section of society votes. In capitalist countries such as the UK there is a view that voting in elections is for rich people, intellectuals and the so-called 'chattering classes' Unlike the so-called Western democracies electors have the right to recall their representatives if they fail to do their job properly.
The DPRK fully practises the Chongsan Ri method and Chongsan ri spirit worked out by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung and fully embraced by the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il. The Chongsan ri method is best defined thus
"The basic requirement of Chongsan-ri spirit is to thoroughly defend the interests of the popular masses, rally the entire people around the Party and convert all the works into that of popular masses themselves. The main of Chongsan-ri method is that superiors help their subordinates, go out to the spot to grasp the actual conditions and find correct ways to solve the problems, give priority to the work with the people and fully mobilize the people’s revolutionary enthusiasm and creativity to carry out their assignment."
All cadres and officials are expected to do manual work. Officials live in ordinary blocks of flats.
The great leader comrade Kim Jong Il himself worked very hard ,cutting down on his sleep only taking naps and eating plain rice-balls. He died whilst on a tour of on-the spot-guidance.
The relationship of the masses to the great leader President Kim Il Sung and the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il was a close one which Westerners found hard to understand. They were like ties of blood , Korean people regarded Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il as their fathers. The role of the leader under Juche-orientated socialism is very different to politicians in capitalist societies. Often politicians in capitalist societies are simply front-men for the big monopoly corporations. Real decision making in done behind closed doors in the boardrooms of the City rather than parliament.
The great leader president Kim Il Sung declared "The People Are My God". The great
leader comrade Kim Jong Il also practiced this carrying out people-orientated policies , benevolent policies. The leader loved the people and the people loved the leader. This was clearly demonstrated when the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il passed away , no communist or socialist or progressive person should speak ill of this.
3)STRUGGLE AGAINST THE ENEMIES OF SOCIALISM
Daft revisionists and Trotskyites wilfully ignore the danger of US imperialism , the south Korean puppets , other imperialist powers such as Japan and assorted international reactionary forces trying to overthrow socialism in the DPRK ,not necessarily by direct force(though this is a possibility with US troops stationed in south Korea and Japan plus 1,000 nuclear weapons in south Korea) or sanctions but by trying undermine the DPRK from within. This was of course used in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. As a Rodong Sinmun article of 19th of January 20009 pointed out
"The lesson to be drawn from those east European countries which shrank back from the class struggle, harboring illusion about the class enemies is that if a country makes one step for concession and retreat in the acute class struggle, it will have to take ten or a hundred steps for concession and retreat and thus meet such tragedy as losing its socialist gains at the hands of the enemies, the article says, and continues:
An uncompromising struggle against the class enemies calls for properly understanding the target of the class struggle.
Imperialism is the no. one class enemy of socialism.
Imperialism represents brutes who cannot exist even a moment without invading other countries and nations. For imperialism aggression and plunder are means of its existence. Its aggressive nature and bestiality can never change.
We must not forget even a moment that there always exist the class enemies who are working hard to destroy the socialist system.
There are those who are opposed to the socialist system, those introducing the corrupt bourgeois way of life into society, taken in by the imperialists' anti-socialist propaganda, those abandoning the socialist principle for money and those divulging state secrets for money and others who try hard to undermine socialism. All of them are the class enemies of socialism.
The moves of the class enemies to disseminate unsound ideas into socialist society must be thoroughly frustrated.
It is necessary to solidly consolidate the socialist class base, strengthen the cohesion and unity of the revolutionary ranks and more firmly build up the armed forces of the class and the revolution, the article notes, urging the people not to be tricked by the talk about the super-class "human rights" and "humanitarianism."
In the 1960s revisionist Khruschov abolished the dictatorship of the proletariat and declared itself a "state of the whole people" abandoning the class struggle and giving up the revolution halfway . The great leader president Kim Il Sung severely criticised this theory in several important works such as the link below
The DPRK maintained that the struggle against the remands of the overthrown capitalists and landlords should be kept up. The DPRK in fact faced sabotage and trickery by spies of both the US and south Korea , for example in 2002 south Korea admitted it sent 7726 spies into the DPRK between 1953 and 1972, virtually 1 a day !
It would be disastrously naive for the DPRK to "open up" , for it to adopt pluralism and liberalism as some revisionists seem to think.
Some so called "ultra leftists " and Trotskyites go as far to repeat the claptrap of so-called defectors( in reality criminals and traitors) and CIA sponsored propagandaists such as the mysterious Ms Demick whose age and birthplace no-one seems to know and whose book is a 'novelised' rather than factual account. Such anti-DPRK rubbish is exposed in the short booklet "Behind the Mirror of Lies-the truth about the Democratic People's Republic of Korea"
4)SONGUN IDEA,SONGUN POLITICS AND SONGUN REVOLUTIONARY LEADERSHIP
The life of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il was closely bound up with the Songun idea, Songun politics and Songun-based revolutionary leadership. The Songun idea was based on the simple principle that arms guarantee the defence and advance of the revolution. This was the truth of the anti-Japanese armed struggle led by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung and was elaborated at the famous Kalun meeting of June 1930. The great leader comrade Kim Jong Il was born the son of guerrillas on Mt Paektu within the sound of the gunshots of the anti-Japanese war. Later during the severe Fatherland Liberation War against the Yankee imperialists he visted the KPA Supreme Command operations room. As it well known to the world , comrade Kim Jong Il started his Songun revoliutionary leadership on August 25th 1960 at the historic Seoul Guards Ryu Kyong Su no 105 Tank Division.
Songun was developed in depth by the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il . As he expounded
"By dint of Songun politics we have smashed the anti-DPRK, anti-socialist machinations of the imperialists step by step, defended the country and the revolution and exalted the dignity and prestige of socialist Korea in the eyes of the world.
The Songun-based politics of our Party is a politics the invincibility of which has been verified through severe historical ordeals, and an all-powerful sword for victory in the revolution. It is an invariable conviction and will of our Party to defend and carry forward by force of arms the sacred revolutionary cause which was pioneered and has won one victory after another by force of arms. The whole Party, the entire army and all the people must wage a resolute struggle under the banner of Songun and thus build a great, prosperous and powerful socialist nation, achieve national reunification and accomplish the revolutionary cause of Juche."
Songun fully recognises the basic fact that socialism is built in confrontation with imperialism. The DPRK itself is on the frontline of the struggle between socialism and imperialism.
During the 1960s US imperialism was inciting its puppets in south Korea to “march north” to attack the DPRK.
Imperialism had also penetrated the international communist movement in the form of modern revisionism. The modern revisionists caused splits and confusion.The socialist camp was split into two creating a dangerous situation. The modern revisionists compromised with the US imperialists and stifled the anti imperialist struggle Jabbering about ’peaceful co existence’ they embarked unilateral and one sided disarmament of the socialist camp. They melted down tanks and guns. In 1962 Khruschov betrayed Cuba to the US imperialists. Not only did they weaken the defence capacity of the socialist camp but they crippled communist and worker's parties throughout the world with their "peaceful road " theories.
Thus the need was for Korea strengthen and consolidate its self defence capablities a revolutionary line in opposition to both US imperialism and modern revisionism. The great leader President Kim Il Sung and the dear leader comrade Kim Jong Il knew that socialism could not be defended by just talking about “peaceful co existence” and other such flowery and effete phraselogy. The whole experience of the Korean revolution showed that the revolution was defended and advanced by the gun
The Korean People’s Army was fortified ideologically and politically. It was built up as the army of the leader,party and working class.As the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il said
“The People’s Army is the revolutionary armed force of the Workers Party of Korea and its mission is to defend with arms the revolutionary cause of our party”
It was also built into a strong army ,a revolutionary army of Mt Paektu fully inheriting the traditions of the anti Japanese armed struggle. It became an army in which each of its soldiers was a match for a hundred enemy soldiers(though the anti party revisionists tried to oppose the revolutionary slogan “ a match for a hundred”).
Leader Kim Jong Il taught as follows
“We must must inspire the entire Party membership and working people and soldiers of the People’s Army with a firm conviction of victory and dauntless fighting spirit so that if the enemy assaults us we shall rise as one as smite the aggressors violently for the honour of Juche Korea under the direction of the leader”.
Under the Songun based revolutionary leadership of leader Kim Jong Il the KPA and Korean people smited US imperialism with full force.In January 1968 the USS Pueblo an armed spy pirate ship of the US imperialist aggressors was captured by the KPA navy off Wonsan(the Pueblo can be seen today on the bank of the river Taedong).The US imperialists demanded the immediate return the ship falsely claiming that it was in “international waters” and the cowardly revisionists tried to advise the DPRK to send the ship and its crew back.
The great leader comrade Kim Jong Il said
"Nowadays people of a certain country are saying that if a war breaks out in Korea it will be serious problem,and “advising us” it would be better to have the Pueblo quietly released.This would mean making a concession to US imperialism,and we can never do such a thing.A concession to US imperialism means submission and surrender.Since the our People’s Arm“Ny did not capture the “Pueblo” on the sea off the United States,but when it was in violation of our country’s territorial waters and engaged in in acts of espionage,we need to neither make any concession to the Americans or pander to them”
The DPRK resolutely stood firm and refused to do so until an apolegy from the US was issued
In 1969 the US imperialist spy plane EC121 tried to infiltrate into DPRK but was shot down by the KPA airforce.In 1994 a US army helicopter infiltrated into DPRK airspace and was brought down by one shot by the KPA.
Since the end of the 1980s the US imperialists have invaded and trampled down the sovereignty of many nations-Panama, Somalia, Iraq, Yugoslavia, Afghanistan , Libya and others.
The US imperialists seeked to isolate and stifle the DPRK by inventing the nuclear issue on the Korean peninsula leading to the 1st ‘Korean nuclear crisis’ in the 1990s and the 2nd one in the 2000s.The DPRK refused to bow down and instead declared a semi war state and announced its intention to withdraw from the one sided and inquitous NPT in 1993. This move stunned the US and they had to enter into talks.
When Bush vocificated about a “rogue state” and “axis of evil” and raked up the 2nd nuclear crisis the DPRK under the Songun supreme commander comrade Kim Jong Il responded with a series of hardline measures namely withdrawing completely from the NPT and declaring itself a nuclear state.This was not mere words,the DPRK succesfully carried out nuclear tests in October 2006 and May 2009. The nuclear device was the fruit of self reliance based 100% on Korean resources and technology.
Thus under the Songun revolutionary leadership the DPRK has been fortified ever more strongly as powerful socialist state of independence.A country of Juche which is able to do what it likes and say what it like no matter what others may say or think.Comrade Kim Jong Il brilliant commander of Songun declared on the 1st of January 1995,at the Takasbol army post that the Korean people had a choice of either being an independent people adhering to socialism or colonial slaves of imperialism.Thanks to the Songun revolutionary leadership of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il the DPRK has been able to smash the unceasing pressure and moves of US and world imperialism to isolate and stifle the DPRK.The DPRK has carried proudly along the road of Juche defying the imperialists.The Songun revolutionary leadership has carried forward the Juche revolutionary cause and is propelling it ever onward to final victory.
Some people wanted the DPRK to laid down its weapons and disarm, it is all too clear what would have happened had the DPRK listened to them and abandoned.
5)THE SUPERIORITY OF JUCHE-BASED SOCIALISM OVER THE CORRUPT IMPERIALIST WEST.
Some say we should be modest about the DPRK achievements and its people centred socialist system , or indeed focus on problems rather than promote the achivements of the DPRK.
The DPRK's achievements are vast . Indeed each day it shows its superiority over the sick,decadent corrupt West. The funeral of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il though a sad and painful event demonstrated the unity ,disclipine and order of Songun Korea. Had any Western capitalist state tried to put that number of people on the streets it would resulted in chaos and disorder on a wide scale. In the UK it was impossible for shop sales to take place without 1 person being stabbed and killed. In the DPRK people can walk the streets safely at night and leave their doors unlocked. In the UK such a thing is impossible. Here criminal gangs threaten the safety of people and drug addicts openly take drugs on the street. Even right-wing
anti socialist philosophers such as Oswald Spengler admitted that the West was on the path of decline and eventual eclipse. The West will indeed be eclipsed by the new socialist civilisation of Juche Korea.
The social and economic achievements of Juche Korea, which are associated with the leadership of the great leaders comrades Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il are great. The DPRK has full employment,people are guaranteed the right to work by the Consitution and this is underpinned by socialist planning and the independent national economy.Taxation was abolished back in 1974 and the agricultural tax in kind was abolished in the period 1964-1966.Housing is supplied virtually free of charge.The Pyongyang Metro is one of the cheapest in the world with a flat rate fare of about 2p(compare this to £4 minimum fare on the London underground.
Education at all levels is free started from kindergarten right up to university level .DPRK university students are not burdened with heavy debts,their accomdation and clothing is supplied free of charge.Education has good quality facilites.This can be witnessed at the Changwang Kindergarten and universities such as the Kim Chaek University and Kim Il Sung university.A new state of the art e library has been opened at the Kim Chaek University built entirely with DPRK funds and resources.Children at the Changgwang kindergarten recieve 5 meals a day.Each child gets 120g of rice per day a far cry from the alleged starvation that the imperialists press claims takes place !
Health care is also free including prescriptions and dentistry.The DPRK public health system is a self reliant people centred socialist healthcare system.The DPRK public health service does not rely on low wage labour from outside the country,unlike the NHS !.There is no hidden fees or costs either in DPRK hospitals(such as parking charges,fees for single rooms,tv charges etc-all of which exist in the UK) It includes the section doctor system whereby doctors actually give check ups to patients in their homes and make rounds of localities.
Socialism in the DPRK is not a copy of the Soviet Union or China nor it is dependent on anyone.It is a Korean style socialist system centred on the popular masses. In the DPRK people are free from the evils of capitalist society such as exploitation, oppression, drugs, violence etc. thanks to the Juche idea independence and creativity are blooming.It is the system chosen by the Korean people themselves. This the legacy bequeathed by the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il which no-one should slander or disparage It will prosper even more under the banner of Juche and self- reliance and the Songun revolutionary leadership of respected General Kim Jong Un.
Let the slanderers of the DPRK and Songun be silent ! Let them eat their own words
LONG LIVE JUCHE-BASED SOCIALISM!
THE GREAT LEADER COMRADE KIM JONG IL IS IMMORTAL!
LONG LIVE RESPECTED GENERAL KIM JONG UN!
