DPRK FM Spokesman on Revised "U.S.-Japan Defense Cooperation Guidelines

 Pyongyang, April 30 (KCNA) -- Diplomatic and military authorities of the United States and Japan held a security meeting on April 27 to revise the "U.S.-Japan defense cooperation guidelines".
    In the new "guidelines" the U.S. set major five sectors for security cooperation with Japan ranging from "peace time" to "contingency", calling for such strengthened role of the Japan "Self-Defense Forces" (SDF) as ballistic missile interception, logistic support to the U.S. forces worldwide, guarantee of maritime security, search and mine sweeping, non-proliferation of WMDs, inspection of vessels and anti-terrorism operation.
    After all the U.S. expanded to the whole world the sphere of SDF's activities, which had been limited to the vicinity of Japan, and made it possible to get military support from Japan during its military operation in any part of the world.
    In this regard, a spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry issued a statement on Thursday condemning the revised guidelines.
    What cannot be overlooked is the fact that the U.S. pulled up the DPRK, contending that the revision was needed to "deter any provocative action" of the latter, the statement said, adding:
    The U.S. asserted that the revised "guidelines" are to cope with "threat" from the DPRK.
    But it is the ulterior objective of the U.S. to lessen its heavy burden of military spending with the strengthened role of SDF, use Japan as a shock brigade for realizing its ambition for world supremacy, encircle and contain its rivals in Eurasia by force of arms and maintain its hegemonic position.
    The U.S. has fanned up Japan's revival of militarism to attain its goal, in disregard of the world concern over the latter's attempt to embellish and deny the past history.
    The strengthened U.S.-Japan military alliance will inevitably harass the stability of Northeast Asia, foment confrontation and friction in the region and spark off disputes and arms race.
    No matter how the structure of relations among neighboring countries may change, the DPRK will invariably hold fast to the Songun politics and the line of simultaneously developing the two fronts and bolster up its capabilities for self-defense with the nuclear deterrent as a pivot unless the U.S. gives up its hostile policy aimed to stifle the former. -0-

U.S. Moves to Plug S. Korea into MD System under Fire

    Pyongyang, April 30 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Disarmament and Peace Institute of the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK Thursday released a statement denouncing the U.S. for running the whole gamut of intrigues to plug south Korea into the U.S.-led missile defense system by deploying THAAD in south Korea under the pretext of "threat" from the DPRK.
    The statement said:
    The U.S. and south Korean puppet authorities at a recent KIDD meeting confirmed an operation plan for deterring "threat from north's nukes and missiles" in the light of coordinated operation and agreed to operate the U.S.-south Korea "deterrence strategic committee."
    The U.S. is attempting to deploy THAAD in south Korea for the first time in the wake of its deployment on the mainland and Guam. This is related to the establishment of MD, an important part of the strategy for dominating the Asia-Pacific region.
    The ulterior aim sought by the U.S. in the projected deployment of THAAD in south Korea under the pretence of "threat" from the DPRK is to forward-deploy high-performance radar in south Korea in order to rapidly monitor and chase the movements of missiles of the rivals in the Eurasian region.
    The U.S. deployment of THAAD in south Korea would result in unilaterally weakening or disabling the deterrent force of strategic forces of neighboring countries and, consequently, upsetting the existing deterrence balance between the U.S. and surrounding countries. This would spark off mistrust and friction between the surrounding countries and the U.S. and south Korea which allowed its deployment and would entail irretrievable baneful consequences and new danger to the security environment in the region.
    The escalating tension in the region would make the south Korean puppet forces having the shackling "alliance" with the U.S. increasingly dependent on it.
    In the final analysis, through the deployment of THAAD the U.S. seeks to achieve its military purpose and, at the same time, strain the relations between south Korea and surrounding countries to put Seoul under its tighter control.
    The surrounding countries warn that deployment of THAAD in south Korea would go beyond the "red-line" and south Korea would become a target of nuclear attack from other countries. This fully reflects their concern and caution of other countries against THAAD.
    The deployment of THAAD in south Korea would further increase the danger of conflict among powers in Northeast Asia. This will compel the DPRK to bolster up its military capability to cope with it as the DPRK will be exposed to its threat. -0

Don't believe the tired old lies

More anti-DPRK lies from the south Korean puppets and the imperialist media ! The south Korean "National Intelligence Service " which is very much the centre of anti DPRK plots and lies is claiming that '15 top officials' in the DPRK have been executed. Needless to say no names are given nor the actual dates or places or details of trials. The only person to be executed in the DPRK in recent years was tried first by a Special Military Tribunal of the Ministry of State Security of the DPRK after been first denounced and removed from positions by a majority decision of the Political Bureau of the WPK , So why no reports ? Well the answer is obvious , no executions have taken place and the whole thing is another pack of lies by the south Korean puppets !

A critique of"Dangerous, isolated and primed for war? North Korean clichés debunked"

At first sight many friends of the DPRK would welcome Professor Hazel Smith 's "Guardian " article "Dangerous, isolated and primed for war? North Korean clichés debunked " as it apparently demolishes the crude propaganda demonising the DPRK . For example Prof Smith correctly refutes charges that the DPRK is involved in drug production and smuggling as she writes "The major source in the public arena for alleged DPRK narcotics production and smuggling is an unverified list of incidents from a 1999Intelligence Section report by the United States Drug Enforcement Agency.
Such reports acknowledge the tentative nature of the evidence: “data should be considered a ‘far cry’ from anything that might be remotely considered as evidence in a US court of law”, an official US report said on the DPRK’s alleged drug trafficking. "
Prof Smith refers to the DPRK's achievements in wiping out illiteracy and points that 35% of DPRK school students go to higher education (a very high percentage, one of the highest in the world I believe) . Smith also points as we in UK KFA have pointed out that a number of DPRK students study abroad including a number in the UK
However the article whilst being an exposure of crude tabloid style near racist propaganda about the DPRK promotes a different kind of propaganda against the DPRK. It is very much a case of the liberal "Guardian " putting a distance between itself and the tabloids and ultra-right wing broadsheets such as the "Daily Telegraph ". Prof Smith herself has written a number of anti-DPRK books , on one occasion she attacked the KFA and was also awarded a medal by the US. As well a Professor at the University of Lancashire she is on the staff of the US Wilson Center and was on the Honorary Committee of US NGO along with George W Bush and former US bureaucrats . For many years Smith was on the staff of Cranfield University which specialises in "security and resilience "(readers may wish to draw their own conclusion as to what this means).
Various weasel words have crept into Prof Smith's article such as the following " The television footage of weeping crowds after Kim Jong-il’s death in 2011 was not balanced by images of the millions more who did not stop all their activities and rush onto the streets to engage in public mourning, for example." How would Prof Smith know this ? Was she there , what is her source ? It is actually an insult to the people of the DPRK who deeply respected and revered the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL. It is also trying to create an impression that people in the DPRK do not support the system.
Prof Smith also implies that the DPRK is comparable to Saudi Arabia ! This is a statement ignorant of the fact that the DPRK has an advanced socialist system centred on the popular masses with true independence whereas Saudi Arabia is a reactionary feudalistic regime which is a puppet of US imperialism.
What Prof Smith represents a the pragmatic viewpoint of some within the establishment. Much of the anti-DPRK propaganda has been designed to demonise the DPRK in such a way as to hype people up to fight a war against the DPRK. It is similar to the anti Serb propaganda before the bombing of Yugoslavia or the propaganda against Saddam and Iraq before the Iraq War . Now once the imperialist war-hawks got their war against the DPRK the results for them would be disastrous - this writer has every confidence that the KPA under supreme leader Marshal KIM JONG UN could liberate south Korea and reunify Korea (this would deprive the US its main foothold in Asia and possibly spark a domino effect) , even if this was not the immediate result south Korea would be destroyed and there would be tens of thousands of US causalities. The US , Japan , Germany , the UK, France and others would see billions of dollars worth of investments incinerated . Not a good idea . So some in the establishment are not keen to gamble on a "big bang " confrontation with the DPRK but instead favour an insidious war of attrition , a war of pressure and trying to destroy the socialist system of the DPRK by other means.
Clues to this can be seen in Prof Smith's article as she seems enthusiastic about the so-called "free flow of information " in other words imperialist ideological and cultural infiltration. Some people hope to effect the so-called "peaceful transition " or "peaceful conversion" strategy (sometimes called the "Dulles Plan " or "Kennedy Doctrine " ) against the DPRK whereby socialism is destroyed by stealth , by ideological, cultural and economic infiltration and psychological warfare rather than physical conflict .
We in UK KFA stand by the DPRK 100% and defend Juche socialism and are vigilant against false friends of the DPRK who hope to destroy Juche socialism by covert and stealthy methods.

Japanese PM Accused of His Reckless Remarks to Cover up Past Crimes

  Pyongyang, April 29 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry Wednesday gave the following answer to the question put by KCNA as regards Japanese Prime Minister Abe's crafty behavior to cover up Japan's past crimes while insulting the victims of the sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army:
    Abe on his trip to the U.S. termed sexual slaves "victims of flesh traffic" in a recent lecture and at a press conference he let loose a spate of reckless remarks asserting that sexual slaves were results of flesh traffic.
    What Abe uttered was an intolerable insult to the victims.
    Explicitly speaking, the sexual slaves for the Imperial Japanese Army were victims of the sexual slavery systematically enforced by militarist Japan by force, not victims of flesh traffic.
    The hideous crimes committed by Japan against humanity during its occupation of Korea and World War II are stark historical facts that can neither be concealed nor be covered up.
    Abe and other Japanese right-wing conservative forces are working hard to totally negate their past crimes and evade responsibility for them through such crafty wordplay. This can be done only by hooligans devoid of morality and human conscience and psychopath bereft of elementary normal sense.
    Abe's reckless remarks that shielded the hideous crimes against humanity in disregard of the international community strongly urging Japan to make an apology and reparation for its past crimes including the issue of sexual slavery vividly showed the moral vulgarity and impudence of Japan.
    Abe reportedly said Japan would donate funds to the UN for the protection of women's rights. This is also a base act of making mockery of mankind as it means bargaining on inviolable human rights with a petty amount of money.
    If the Japanese authorities persist in putting under the carpet the past crime-woven history of Japan and repeating it, it will never escape destruction more shameful than its defeat in the past war.
    The Abe-led Japanese authorities should drop their anachronistic way of thinking and honestly admit and apologize and make reparation for all the inhuman crimes including the sexual slavery as demanded by the international community. -0

CPRK Secretariat Holds U.S. and S. Korean Puppet Regime Chiefly Responsible for Nuclear Proliferation

 Pyongyang, April 29 (KCNA) -- Shortly ago, the U.S. and the south Korean puppet regime concluded their negotiations on amending the "atomic energy agreement" which have been under way since 2010 and initialed the proposal for its amendment.
    The amendment will help the puppet regime more frantically step up the moves for developing nukes while ever more undisguisedly reprocessing spent nuclear fuel and enriching uranium which have been done so far in secrecy with the backing of the U.S.
    The Secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea (CPRK) in its bulletin No. 1092 Wednesday terms this a dangerous criminal move which will escalate tension on the Korean peninsula and spark off nuclear proliferation and nuclear arms race in Northeast Asia.
    It goes on:
    The U.S. had already concluded the deceptive "atomic energy agreement" with the south Korean regime in the 1950s. Since then it has connived at and patronized the latter's nuclear development under the signboard of "controlling nukes."
    Under the "south Korea-U.S. sci-tech agreement", the U.S. has systematically transferred the technologies applicable to the development of nuclear weapons to the puppet regime and has now gone the lengths of enabling it to enrich uranium, reprocess and recycle spent nuclear fuel.
    Consequently, the U.S. has fully revealed its true colors as the chief culprit of nuclear proliferation after throwing off the mask it has worn for years to systematically transfer sensitive technologies, manpower and equipment necessary for nuclear development to the puppet regime behind the scene.
    It is shameless, indeed, for the U.S. to take issue with someone's nukes and express "concern over nuclear proliferation".
    The U.S. and the south Korean puppet regime has now neither justification nor excuse to pull up the DPRK over its nukes nor can they evade their responsibility as the chief culprits of nuclear proliferation and nuclear arms race.
    The DPRK will further bolster up its self-defensive nuclear deterrent for defending the dignity of the nation, its sovereignty and global peace and security to cope with the reckless nuclear hysteria of the U.S. and the puppet regime. -0-

Rodong Sinmun Brands U.S. as Worst Human Rights Abuser

Pyongyang, April 29 (KCNA) -- A white policeman mercilessly killed a defenseless black man in South Carolina State of the U.S.
Rodong Sinmun Wednesday observes in a commentary in this regard:
The U.S. talks a great deal about "protection of human rights", but it can never cover up its true colors as the world's worst human rights abuser.
It is not the first time that white policemen killed black men.
The latest murder of the black man by a white policeman goes to clearly prove that the U.S. is the worst tundra of human rights in the world.
Not content with the above-said crimes at home, the U.S. makes no scruple of violating human rights in other countries.
Shortly ago, the Italian Ministry of Justice sentenced two U.S. service members to six years in prison each on charge of raping a 24 years old Romanian woman who was six months pregnant at a local city of Italy in July of last year.
The U.S. is apt to pull up other countries over their "human rights" issues and dictate them to do this or that whenever it opens its mouth. This clearly proves once again that the U.S. is not a human rights champion but the worst human rights abuser and the cruelest human butcher.
The U.S. accuses other countries of their "human rights issues," while shelving its own human rights abuses. This is aimed to calm down the international criticism of the human rights abuses in the U.S.
The U.S. should stop making vain efforts to cover up its crimes and its true colors as the worst human rights abuser through the hypocritical call for "defending human rights" and face the world's stern judgment for its human rights abuses. -0-

Special Article on the recent corruption scandals in south Korea and their significance- ASSPUK , JISGE and UK KFA

    London 29th of April Juche 104(2015)
             The recent resignation of the south Korean puppet prime minister Lee Wan Koo  after the revelation  by south Korean businessman Sung Wan-jong that he had accepted a £27,000 bribe  just goes to show just how corrupt south Korea is and what a load of nonsense it is to describe south Korea as a "democracy " or an "advanced state" or a "welfare society " ,. In fact south Korea is an extremely corrupt anti-popular fascist state , which years ago would have been described as a "banana republic " . Many refer to south Korea as the "republic of the Jaebols "(Jaebols " are the giant monopoly capitalist corporations of south Korea such as Samsung and Daewoo) . All south Korean puppet regimes have been corrupt starting with Syngham Rhee . He gained notoriety, even before the US put him into power as their puppet, as he embezzled the funds of Korean nationalists . The father of Park Geun Hye, current south Korean puppet ruler , the fearsome fascist dictator Park Chung Hee was very corrupt (like father ,like daughter some would say ). During Park's rule the south Korean puppets even  tried to bribe US congressman with money from US aid  !The military successors to Park Chung Hee (who was shot by his own security chief in 1979) Chun Do Hwan and Roh Tae Woo were both corrupt and served time for corruption. The civilian fascist dictator Kim Yong Sam's son Kim Hyun Chol took bribes amounting to millions of dollars from the Hanbo company.
                         Under the Park Geun Hye puppet regime , corruption is getting worse. A report by the Political and Economic Risk consultancy of Hong Kong in 2013 showed that south Korea is the most corrupt country in all of Asia  an official said "“the more serious problem is that south  Korea’s leniency to corruption contributes to corruption ‘beyond south Korea’s borders’. The roots of corruption in south Korea stretch to the highest levels of government and business.” Park Geun Hye herself spends more time outside of south Korea on foreign trips than she does inside south Korea. The crisis around the latest corruption scandal occurred while Park was on a trip to Latin America spending south Korean taxpayers money and shaking hands with the blood-soaked Colombian fascist oligarchic regime(birds of a feather and all that ). South Korea has a huge gap between the rich and the poor which is becoming wider day by day .
               It is inevitable that corruption should be endemic in south Korea as the puppet regime was originally forced on the south Korean people by the US imperialists at the point of a bayonet . All south Korean puppet regimes have simply been instruments of US neo-colonial rule and have exploited the south Korean people.
It is no use trying to reform or tinker with the south Korean puppet ruling system  it needs to be overthrown completely and for independent reunification with the DPRK to take place.

KCNA Commentary Slams U.S. Daydream

    Pyongyang, April 28 (KCNA) -- The United States is kicking up much fuss, claiming that the DPRK's army has reached the level of making a nuclear strike at the U.S. mainland.
    William Gortney, commander of the U.S. northern forces, in a press conference held at the U.S. Defense Department said that the U.S. military judged that "north Korea is capable of firing ICBMs tipped with smaller nuclear warheads at the U.S. mainland".
    The commander of the U.S. forces in south Korea and the commander-in-chief of the U.S. forces in the Pacific echoed Gortney's utterances at the Senate Armed Services Committee.
    In the past the U.S. refused to admit the existence of nuclear weapons in the DPRK, negating its access to nuclear weapons.
    The U.S., however, made a U turn, working hard to build up public opinion on the DPRK's smaller nukes and its capability to make a nuclear strike at the U.S. mainland. Then why?
    It is seeking to attain its aim by periodically escalating the tension on the Korean peninsula.
    It merits attention that the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee let loose a litany of invectives against the DPRK, asserting that the "threat from north Korea makes the situation on the Korean peninsula unpredictable and it is a main factor of making the situation there unstable" in the same place where the commander of the U.S. forces in south Korea and the commander-in-chief of the U.S. forces in the Pacific made a hue and cry over "north Korea's missile strike at the U.S. mainland."
    In a word, lurking behind the above-said claim is a sinister intention to gain a double purpose of smoothly pushing forward the pivot to Asia-Pacific strategy by staging a charade for straining the situation on the peninsula and bringing bigger profits to the U.S. munitions monopolies.
    The assistant secretary of State for disarmament verification blustered at a recent seminar sponsored by the U.S. Centre for Strategic and International Studies that the U.S. and south Korea were not negotiating for the deployment of THAAD at present but its deployment in south Korea would prove a decisive force for "coping with north Korea's missiles".
    Commenting on this, U.S. media said that those remarks reflected the U.S. Administration's "strong political will" to deploy THAAD on the peninsula at any cost under the pretext of "countering the nuclear missiles of north Korea".
    As it is well-known to everybody, the deployment of THAAD in south Korea constitutes a main link in the chain efforts to implement the U.S. pivot to Asia-Pacific strategy.
    By deploying THAAD in south Korea the U.S. seeks to disable the strategic nuclear forces of potential rivals in Asia-Pacific region, notably Russia and China, and hold a military edge over the region.
    The deployment of very costly THAAD would bring a windfall to the U.S. munitions monopolies.
    In the final analysis, the U.S. required the spread of fiction about "nuclear missile threat from north Korea" and periodical escalation of tension on the peninsula to serve the purpose of THAAD deployment.
    The U.S., however, had better discard its daydream of achieving a double purpose.
    The service personnel and people in the DPRK keep high vigilance against the U.S. cunning scenario to fish in troubled waters by employing a trite method.
    The U.S. would be well advised to bear in mind that it will meet a tragic fate of ruin, if it behaves recklessly, failing to properly know who its rival is. -0-

Quote on the south Korean revolution by the great leader President KIM IL SUNG

The basic contradiction in south Korean society at the present stage is the contradiction between US imperialism and its accomplices—the landlords, comprador capitalists and reactionary bureaucrats—on the one hand and the workers, peasants, urban petty bourgeois and national capitalists on the other.
Therefore, to attain freedom and liberation, the people in south Korea must drive out the US imperialist forces of aggression and destroy their accomplices—the landlords, comprador capitalists and reactionary bureaucrats. Of these US imperialism is the No. 1 target of struggle for the south Korean people.
There can be no freedom and liberation for the people or social progress, nor can the reunification of our country be achieved, until the US imperialist aggressive troops are driven out and its colonial rule is abolished in south Korea.

The revolution in south Korea is a national-liberation revolution against the foreign imperialist forces of aggression, and a democratic revolution against the forces of feudalism.


The great leader President KIM IL SUNG on south Korea

Since the first days of their occupation of south Korea, the US imperialists have pursued a policy of military aggression and colonial enslavement. As a result, south Korea has been completely turned into a colony, a military base of the US imperialists.
The south Korean “regime”, since it is a puppet regime installed by he US imperialists by force of arms, is nothing but a docile instrument for executing the instructions of its US overlords.
Through this puppet regime and with their so-called “aid” as bait, the US imperialists have placed all the political, economic, cultural and military spheres of south Korea under their control.



South Korea the most corrupt country in the world and the hypocrisy of the Western media

Well folks one place that the Western media are not calling for "regime change " or "human rights investigations " or for a colour revolution is south Korea , Recently a leading south Korean "businessman " Sung Wan-jong committed suicide after being placed under investigation for corruption . His suicide note revealed a list of 8 names that he had given bribes to , including south Korean "prime minister " Lee Wan-koo. Lee had been given a bribe of £27,000 . Of course this is the tip of the iceberg as south Korea is the one of the most corrupt societies on earth where the rich get ever richer and the poor get ever poorer but you never get the bleeding heart writers of the "Guardian " and "Independent " going on about how there needs to be change in south Korea and how Ms Park should be brought down , Oh not they just bang on and on about "human rights " in the DPRK and never notice what is going on in south Korea !

The Reactionary anti-socialist , anti-communist and anti-people nature of the UN Report on "Human Rights " in the DPRK.

A lot has been said on the subject of the so-called UN "Commission of Inquiry " report into "human rights " in the DPRK . The report has been pulled apart and refuted many times over . However it is relevant to make a few more comments on it as it apparently takes issue with the DPRK's treatment of "landlords, capitalists, collaborators with the Japanese colonial government " . This shows the absurdity of the report and its deeply reactionary nature . Why shouldn't those(and their descendants) who collaborated with the cruel and barbarous colonial rule of imperialist Japan be punished ? What is wrong with this ? Those who betray their country and co-operate with imperialism need to be dealt with sternly . Similarly the DPRK was absolutely correct to crush exploiters like landlords and capitalists who exploited the people and made their lives a misery . In fact the DPRK dealt with such elements in an even, fair and proportionate manner . Visiting the DPRK in 2013 I spoke to my guide on about the land reform and the landlords . The landlords were not shot or hung but their land was confiscated without compensation and distributed free . The landlords by and large were not even imprisoned , they were moved and resettled in other areas . They were even given a piece of land to work (what could be more fairer) . The trouble was that being a bunch of lazy useless idle rich parasites the landlords refused to work .
Under socialism it is necessary to crush the remnants of the exploiting class who try to restore the old exploitative system , in doing so it actually increases the freedom of the working people to live free from exploitation . As the great leader President KIM IL SUNG said "Also, within our social system subversive counter-revolutionary influences infiltrate from without and the survivors of the overthrown exploiter classes agitate within; so, the class struggle is necessary to suppress these counter-revolutionary activities.
In this way, there is, in a socialist society, a form of class struggle exercising dictatorship over both external and internal enemies, along with the basic form of class struggle which aims to revolutionize and remould the workers, peasants and working intellectuals through cooperation so as to achieve unity and solidarity
Thus the criticisms of the DPRK by the "Commission of Inquiry ", apart from being fabricated and based on the words of a handful of treacherous turncoats , also reveal a deep anti-socialist , anti-communist bias.  At the end of the day the report is an anti-people report !

ASSPUK and JISGE on the 3rd anniversary of the publication of The Great Kim Il Sung Is the Eternal Leader of Our Party and Our People"

London 26th of April Juche 104(2015)
        The Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK and JISGE published the following joint statement on the occasion of the recent (20th of April) 3rd anniversary of the publication of the work "The Great Kim Il Sung Is the Eternal Leader of Our Party and Our People" by the dear respected Marshal  Kim Jong Un on the 20th of April 2012;
                                  Dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un in the  work makes it clear that the people of the DPRK  will uphold the great leader President Kim Il Sung as their eternal leader . President Kim Il Sung was truly unique as his revolutionary career started in his teens and ended in his 80s, his life spanned the 20th century . Moreover as dear respected comrade Kim Jong Un points out in the work ;
He was a great leader of the people, who put forward the masses, once oppressed and exploited, as the master of history, and raised their dignity and value to the highest level possible.

His was a noble life of a people’s leader, who regarded “The people are my God” as his motto, applied it to his ideas and leadership and turned it into reality. For him, the masses of the people were always a teacher, and he was their loyal son. He began his revolutionary activities by going amongst them; the revolutionary activities were conducted always by relying on them, and they were dedicated, from beginning to end, to defending and achieving their independence. Thanks to these activities, the masses’ demand and aspiration for independence became ideas, theories, lines and policies, and the most revolutionary and scientific guidelines, which were easily understood by them and which indicated the true roads for them to take to shape their destiny, were provided."
                                        This distinguishes President Kim Il Sung from other political leaders and statesmen of the 20th century. It was not simply the fact that the great leader President Kim Il Sung's career spanned the century but his unswerving adherence to independence as well as his deep love for the people  which were intimately inter-twinned. President Kim Il Sung was the greatest of great leaders.
As dear respected comrade Kim Jong Un explains the road of the DPRK was not an easy one but an acute struggle, a class struggle against the various forces that schemed to hold back or stifle the DPRK such as imperialism , sycophancy , dominationism and revisionism . The DPRK is the legacy bequeathed by the great leader President Kim Il Sung. The socialism of the DPRK established by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung is the most independent socialism which combines socialism with the national character and independence and it is the most invincible socialism.
In the work the dear respected leader Marshal Kim Jong Un First Secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea maintains that the DPRK and WPK must follow the road of independence, Songun and socialism.
"The times may pass and we may encounter ordeals, but we must invariably advance along the road of independence, the road of Songun and the road of socialism, which Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il followed throughout their life, and thus fulfil the mission and duty as befits the descendants of Kim Il Sung and soldiers and devoted followers of Kim Jong Il"
           This is a sledgehammer blow to those who want to derail Juche-orientated
socialism . It is a militant declaration that the DPRK will follow the road charted
by the great leaders generalissimo's Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il. Dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un has strongly upheld the continuity of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung's leadership and is leading the struggle to dye the whole of society with the monolithic ideological of Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism.
                               Some three years have passed since the publication of the work     "The Great Kim Il Sung Is the Eternal Leader of Our Party and Our People " during which its validity and correctness has been proved with each passing day. It certainly  charts the road ahead for the DPRK and Juche idea followers of the world. We highly commend the work and call for an intense study of it.

The Korean People's Army militant revolutionary anti-imperialist force of Songun !-special article by ASSPUK and JISGE leader Dermot Hudson

      London 25th of April Juche 104(2015)
April 25th is the anniversary of the foundation of the Korean People's Army . It was actually founded as the Anti-Japanese People's Guerrilla Army which then became the Korean People's Revolutionary Army in March 1934. The great leader President KIM IL SUNG who inherited the 2 pistols from his father keenly realised that Korea could not achieve independence simply by begging for it or by peaceful means so embarked on the road of armed struggle, the road of Songun saying " Weapons are our life and soul , oppose armed force with armed force "

Right from the start the Anti-Japanese People's Guerrrilla Army(AJPGA) of Korea was an anti-imperialist revolutionary armed force composed of the workers and peasants which fought for national liberation but also proletarian revolution.  As the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG said "Let us all raise higher the red banner of the revolution and launch a vigorous armed struggle against Japanese imperialism in order to win the historic cause of national liberation"
  The AJPGA was based firmly on the Juche Idea The AJPGA fought in the revolutionary  spirit of self-reliance. They either captured  weapons from the Japanese imperialists or made their own . Once some people had the hope then the then Soviet Union would supply them with a grenade factory but such a thing never materialised so instead the AJPGA partisans made their own grenades , the "Yanji bomb" or "Yongil bomb ". Nowadays the successor of the AJPGA the Korea People's Army has its own nuclear 'Yanji bomb'  made with 100% Korean resources and labour and ready to deter any imperialist aggression !
   The AJPGA was transformed into the Korean People's Revolutionary Army  in March 1934. Under the command of the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG , a gifted military strategist and ever-victorious iron-willed brilliant commander , the KPRA fought many battles against Japanese imperialism  including the famous battle of Pochonbo. The guerrillas of the KPRA were vastly outnumbered by the Japanese imperialists who also had huge supplies of military hardware and modern weapons but led but the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG they did not flinch or waver but fought in the spirit of militant anti-imperialism and the spirit of fighting the enemy without  compromise. The Juche theory on warfare teaches that the outcome of war is not decided merely by weapons alone but those who hold those weapons .

     During the great victorious Fatherland Liberation the regular revolutionary armed force of the DPRK , the Korean People's Army (founded on the 8th of February 1948) fought against the US imperialists and their south Korean puppets and also troops from 15 satellite states of US imperialism such as the UK . By applying Juche-orientated tactics and Songun based tactics the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG led the KPA and Korean people to a great victory over US imperialism the first time that the US imperialists had been defeated.
After the Korean war the US imperialists continued their provocations against the DPRK but were smashed each time by the heroic KPA under the command of the great revolutionary leader generalissimo KIM IL SUNG. This included the "Pueblo" incident of 1968, the EC121 incident, the Panmunjom incident and others.
The great leader generalissimo KIM IL SUNG not only put forward the concept that the People's Army is the army of the working class,the army of the revolution and the army of the party but also that each soldier is a match for a hundred .The line of making the army a cadre army in which each member could carry out the duties of the next rank. The line of arming the whole people and fortifying the nation was also implemented. Of course the modern revisionists seized with fear of imperialism and obsessed with "peaceful co existence" got their lackey in the DPRK the anti party counter revolutionary factionalists to oppose the slogan " a match for a hundred" but the rank and file KPA soldiers responded by chiselling the slogan into a rock.
   Self-reliant defence is one of the central pillars of the Juche ideology. The DPRK developed self- reliance in defence and was not dependent on other countries for its defence. The great leader comrade Kim Il Sung realised both through the experience of the anti- Japanese revolutionary struggle and the Fatherland Liberation War as well incidents outside the country such the Cuban missile crisis(in which the revisionist USSR betrayed the Cuban people by doing a deal with the US imperialists) that a country should only rely on itself for defence and not outsiders.
   Great generalissimo KIM JONG IL, the son of partisans, continued splendidly the cause of Juche army building and developed the Songun revolution in depth . He began giving on the spot guidance to the KPA on the 25th August 1960 when he visited the Ryu Kyong Su Guard no 105 tank unit(the KPA tank unit that was first to liberate Seoul in June 1950) . He took a keen interest in military affairs and wrote a lot of works on military affairs. He became the supreme commander of the KPA in 1991.
   The KPA grew even stronger under the leadership of Songun supreme commander comrade KIM JONG IL. The KPA faced down the US imperialists in the first and second 'nuclear crisis' .The US imperialists were also humbled in the 1994 'helicopter incident' in which a KPA soldier brought down a Yank helicopter with a single shot.
The KPA is a strong army,patient  but strong. The US imperialists and south Korean puppets ceaselessly carried out war provocations in 2010 .The KPA repeatedly warned them to desist. The foolish south Korean puppets ignored the warnings. Recklessly in November they carried out live fire exercises in the West Sea area and fired shells into the territory of the DPRK damaging houses. The KPA retaliated blasting Yongphyong Island. The puppets and the US imperialists blustered about retaliation etc but in reality could do nothing against the mighty KPA of Songun commanded by the great leader generalissimo KIM JONG IL and general KIM JONG UN .

Today the KPA inheriting the militant anti-imperialist revolutionary spirit of the 
anti-Japanese People's Guerrilla Army upholds the anti-US, anti-imperialist and proudly carries on its tanks and military hardware the slogan "Let Us Wipe 
out the US imperialist aggressors , the sworn enemy of the Korean people ". No other army in the world has such a militant anti-imperialist line  and indeed we see the spectacle in so many countries of selling-out and  betraying the revolution, of people embracing and grovelling to their enemies .
   The KPAcommanded by the dear respected leader Marshal KIM JONG UN stands ready not only to deter US imperialist aggression but to reunify Korea . As dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN said "Counter a provocation with a prompt counterattack and a war of aggression with a great, just war for national reunification!' This is our principled stand and steadfast will."
Thus the Korean People's Army is the militant revolutionary anti-imperialist force of Songun. Glory to the KPA on its 83rd anniversary.

KFA Official Delegate Addresses Southampton Meeting

A meeting of the Southampton Morning Star Readers and Supporters Group was held on the 9th of April. It was chaired by the secretary of the Southampton and Hampshire branch of the Communist Party of Britain(CPB), The chair they support  DPRK they support the DPRK against US imperialism.
                            Addressing the meeting Dermot Hudson UK KFA and JISGE chair said that  the US imperialists are carrying out military exercises in south Korea against the DPRK and Ashton Cater US defence boss is visiting south Korea at present.
                       The US imperialists have kicked up the "human rights  " racket against the DPRK with the aim of stifling the DPRK. The UN human rights report cooked by the US imperialists was based entirely on false testimony of human scum defectors.
                       Dermot Hudson said that the real human rights abusers are the US imperialists who discriminate against black people in the US. Moreover the US committed horrendous crimes in the Korean War including germ warfare and also in recent years the US CIA has carried out torture.
                The CPB secretary and chair of the Southampton Morning Star readers and supporters group said the US imperialists were hypocrites as they support the feudal regime is Saudi Arabia.

Questions and discussions followed.

A resolution denouncing the US anti-DPRK human rights campaign was adopted.

CPRK Secretariat Assails S. Korean Authorities' Suppression of Demonstrators

    Pyongyang, April 24 (KCNA) -- The Secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea (CPRK) on Friday made public information bulletin No. 1091 in denunciation of the south Korean authorities' suppression of demonstrators honoring the memory of the victims of the ferry Sewol disaster.
    The information bulletin termed the ongoing anti-"government" actions staged in south Korea one year since the ferry Sewol disaster with broad sections of people involved entirely just ones as they were an eruption of the south Koreans' pent-up grudge and anger at the puppet conservative group.
    It went on:
    The puppet group, however, cracked down on the bereaved families and demonstrators ruthlessly, far from lending an ear to their voices. This was a thrice-cursed crime against humanity and hideous human rights abuse that revealed its despicable nature.
    It was unprecedented in the world that the puppet group hurled riot police into the operations to ruthlessly suppress the bereaved families grieving over the death of their children claimed by the horrible disaster for which it is responsible and the guiltless inhabitants sympathetic with them after labeling them "undesirable forces" and "political agitators." At a time when bereaved families of victims of the ferry Sewol disaster and demonstrators were dragged to police stations, shedding blood due to tear liquid sprayed by fascist police and the whole of south Korea turned into a mourner's house shaking with angry cries, the present chief executive started her overseas trip, paying no heed to them, and enjoyed herself wining and dining in her gorgeous dress. This despicable behavior stunned the world.
    However, the puppet group is hell-bent on the suppression, threatening to ferret out the masterminds and core members involved in the "violent rallies" to the last one and take legal actions against all of them, far from making an apology and reflection on the crackdown.
    All these facts go to prove that the puppet group is hordes of cruel human butchers and human rights abusers.

U.S.-S. Korea Confab for Preemptive Nuclear Attack upon DPRK Assailed

Pyongyang, April 23 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the All-Koreans Emergency Measure Committee for Opposing the North-targeted Nuclear War Drills released a statement on Thursday in denunciation of the U.S.-south Korea confab for mounting a preemptive nuclear attack upon the DPRK.
The U.S. secretary of Defense and the south Korean puppet minister of Defense asserted at the meeting in Seoul on Apr. 10 that the DPRK's technologies for manufacturing smaller nukes and mobile ICBMs have reached the acme.
At the seventh KIDD meeting held in Washington on Apr. 14 pursuant to the proposal made for coping with those technologies the U.S. and south Korean puppet group agreed to set up the U.S.-south Korea "deterrence strategy commission" to cope with nuclear missiles of the DPRK and "threat from its WMDs."
They are now elaborating on the "conception of 4D operation" against DPRK's ballistic missiles to round off it as "op-plan" in contingency on the Korean peninsula.
Terming this another unpardonable military provocation against the DPRK and a blatant challenge to all Koreans and other peace-loving people in the world calling for peace and stability on the Korean peninsula and in other parts of the region, the statement goes on:
The story about "threat from north's nukes and missiles" floated by the U.S. and the puppet group is no more than a plot to justify the deployment of THAAD in south Korea and tighten the U.S.-Japan-south Korea military nexus.
The desperate efforts of the chieftains of provocation and war maniacs to deceive and mock at the public at home and abroad through fictions about "provocation" and "threat" will only bring into bolder relief their ulterior design.
It is, indeed, ridiculous for the U.S. and the puppet group to dare talk about a preemptive attack upon the DPRK as it is no more than an act of inviting a nuclear disaster which would only precipitate their final ruin.
The DPRK will never tolerate any reckless attempt of the U.S. and the south Korean war maniacs to mount a preemptive nuclear attack but blow up all the bases of provocation through a merciless preemptive strike of its own style. -0-

Pyongyang City of Calm

One thing about visiting Pyongyang is that it is really peaceful, quiet and calm(except for big keynote celebrations) . When you are in Pyongyang you rarely hear sirens of emergency vehicles racing up and down nor do you get police helicopters hovering above making lots of noise, In the DPRK the civil police of the Ministry of People's Security are unarmed and do not walk around with bulky machine-guns like some people in London , their function is simply controlling the traffic.

           Which is more threatening (see below )

UK KFA statement on the 83rd anniversary of the foundation of the KPA



London 23rd of April 2015
The UK Korean Friendship Association issued the following statement on the occasion of the foundation of the of the Anti-Japanese People's Guerrilla Army , the forerunner of the modern Korean People's Army.

83 years ago, on the 25th of April 1932, the great leader President KIM IL SUNG  founded the Anti-Japanese People’s Guerrilla Army (AJPGA)which became the Korean People's Revolutionary Army in March 1934 and formed the regular armed force of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea in 1948.
                    The foundation of the KPA  as the KPRA in 1932 marked the birth of the first people's armed force in Korea. The KPA was and is distinguished from the armies of imperialist countries because it is a people's army composed of the sons and daughters of the workers and peasants. It protects the lives of the people and their independence  It is also distinguished from other armies because it is based on Juche and self-reliance.The fighters of the AJGPA fought many battles against the marauding Japanese imperialists  often virtually barehanded without the support of an external power and without a stable rear base.
                              The KPA inherited the fine traditions of the anti-Japanese partisans . Under the command of the great leader leader generalissimo KIM IL SUNG it vanquished the US imperialist invaders. It faced down the continuous provocations of US imperialism throughout the period following the Korean war . Under the command of generalissimo KIM JONG IL it won victory in the 'war without gunshots' against the US imperialists in the 1990s and 2000s.
                                 Now the KPA under the command of dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN is defending the independence of the DPRK and its socialist system against all manner of threat, provocation and pressure by US imperialism and other  imperialists. The KPA is not only defending the independence and dignity of the DPRK but is also participating in construction projects and is the creator of the people's happiness. We believe that the KPA will become stronger and stronger under the wise leadership of dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN.

" New nice buildings have sprung up on the socialist paradise "-DPRK Supreme leader dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN


 Kim Jong Un Provides Field Guidance to Wonsan Baby Home and Orphanage Close to Completion

   Pyongyang, April 22 (KCNA) --
Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, provided field guidance to Wonsan Baby Home and Orphanage close to completion.     Enjoying a bird's-eye view of the baby home and orphanage, he expressed great satisfaction, saying those buildings look nice when watching only those exteriors and that just frames stood on dusty land when he inspected them two months ago but the project is close to completion and this area has undergone a dramatic change.
    New nice buildings have sprung up on the socialist paradise where fairylands are appearing one after another, making it possible to realize another long-cherished desire of the great leaders who were always considerate towards orphans, he said.
    Looking round various places of those buildings, he learned in detail about their construction.
    He praised the builders for constructing all rooms of those buildings in the best quality including nursing and educational rooms, a children's library, room for observing nature, room for playing with intelligence toys, amusement room, playing hall, wading pool, bath, barber's and clinic.
    He said that all facilities were arranged in a reasonable way so that they might be available for bringing up and educating those children and promoting their growth and developing their intellectual faculties, and that all of them were well built in such a way as to suit their feelings and help them cultivate their creativity and independence.
    He noted with pleasure that the baby home and orphanage have been built at the world's level as the builders used not only tiles for exterior and interior walls and sanitary ware but also outdoor rubber plates, all made at home. This is a proof that a lot of successes have been made in the efforts to implement the party's policy on locally producing building materials, he added.
    The longer I watch the baby home and orphanage, the more fashionable they look both in interior and exterior, he said, noting the construction of these splendid edifices proves that designing and building are making a leap forward in the country with each passing day.
    He underscored the need to make good preparations for operating the baby home and orphanage including the work to build up well the ranks of nurses and kindergarteners and sufficiently provide school things, utensils, materials for their operation, etc. as their construction is near completion.
    Enjoying a bird's-eye view of the baby home and orphanage again and again, he said with joy that they stand impeccable when they are viewed from their front and back. He noted he was pleased to see a nice palace for children to be proud of in the world, crystal of the party's love for the rising generation and future. He added that he felt as if he had seen orphans cheerfully playing free from worries and as if he had plucked a star.
    Saying that the soldier-builders made a lot of efforts, working hard day and night to bring joy to the people, he asked officials to convey his greetings to them. He extended the thanks of the KPA Supreme Commander to them.
    He called upon the soldier-builders to perfectly finish the remaining project so that they may take responsibility for the safety of the project and guarantee its absolute quality for all eternity and thus hold a ceremony for the completion of Wonsan Baby Home and Orphanage with splendor on June 1, the international children's day.
    He was accompanied by KPA Vice Marshal Hwang Pyong So, director of the General Political Bureau of the KPA. -0- 


             It is really impressive that dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN is leading the Korean people to build a socialist paradise by their own efforts and Juche self-reliance. This orphanage has been built without aid from outside the DPRK or NGOs or by the IMF or World Bank 

Great new anti-US imperialist poster from the DPRK "Don't Forget Wolf-like U.S. Imperialists"

New Poster Produced
Pyongyang, April 22 (KCNA) -- New poster "Don't Forget Wolf-like U.S. Imperialists" was produced by the Mansudae Art Studio recently.
The poster depicts a woman bitterly condemning the U.S. imperialist aggressors, infuriated by the monstrous massacres of Koreans committed by them after bringing a war disaster to the peaceful land and a baby pitifully crying in her arms when she was tortured by the aggressors during the last Korean war.
It also depicts brave Korean people unyieldingly fighting against aggressors even on guillotines, holding flags of the DPRK till the last moments of their lives, and wolf-like U.S. imperialists brutally killing them.
It teaches once again the service personnel and people of the DPRK the immutable truth that they should not have even an iota of illusion about the U.S. imperialists but settle accounts with them by arms only no matter how much water may flow under the bridge. -0-

Their Aspirations Should Be Realized

Their Aspirations Should Be Realized
Fifty five years ago the south Korean people launched a mass struggle to put an end to the colonial rule of the US imperialists and the fascist rule of their stooges and achieve an independent life. This struggle, called the April Popular Uprising, occupies a significant page in the history of the movement of the south Korean people.
The uprising swept across south Korea involving several million people. It was an outburst of the pent-up indignation of the south Korean people who were under the colonial rule of the US imperialists and the fascist rule of their stooges for 15 years after Korea’s liberation.
The traitor Syngman Rhee who had maintained his “regime” by dint of the fascist police rule with the backing of the US revealed his wild ambition to win another term in the fraudulent election held on March 15, 1960. Meanwhile, not only workers and citizens but students of secondary and higher schools staged demonstrations, shouting “Reject the fraudulent election” and “The current election is void. Don't count the votes”.
Dumbfounded, Syngman Rhee placed the whole of south Korea under martial law and issued an order to put down the demonstrations. This enraged the south Korean people of different social strata including youth and students to rise up in the struggle against the crackdown. The participants in the struggle fought against the fascist oppression at the risk of their lives, shouting “Corrupt politics must retire!”, “Down with the Syngman Rhee regime!” and other slogans, and eventually overthrew the dictatorial Syngman Rhee regime, pro-American, flunkeyist and traitorous.
Through the uprising the south Korean people demonstrated that a fascist regime which depends upon pro-Americanism and flunkeyism would inevitably fall into a cesspool of history. The uprising gave a telling blow to the US which had pursued a policy of colonial subjugation in south Korea and showed that a patriotic force would be easily able to defeat any dictatorial group if they wage a stubborn struggle in unity.
Since then 55 years passed, but the aspirations of the south Korean people for independence, democracy and national reunification have not yet been realized.
The achievements the participants in the uprising made at the cost of their blood to democratize the south Korean society have been flagrantly trampled upon by the United States and the pro-American conservative forces of south Korea.
It is the consistent strategy of the US to place the whole of the Korean peninsula under its control and realize its ambition to hold sway over the Asia-Pacific region using south Korea as a foothold.
Proceeding from this strategy, the US has stood in the way of the movement of the Korean people for national reunification and constantly aggravated tension on the Korean peninsula, while tightening its political and military grip on south Korea.
As an example, it decided to indefinitely delay its transfer of wartime operation right to south Korea. Now it is seeking to deploy the THAAD in south Korea. In particular, it is resorting to the machinations to isolate and stifle the DPRK with a foolish scheme to drive it to a collapse in the long run, finding fault with its “nuclear and human rights issues.” In the meantime, it is reinforcing its aggressive armed forces in south Korea and is ceaselessly staging joint military exercises with south Korea in a bid to threaten the DPRK militarily and mount a nuclear war against it. Through large-scale joint military exercises with its puppet bellicose forces of south Korea which are targeted at aggression on the DPRK the United States is driving the Korean peninsula to a touch-and-go situation.
Given to flunkeyism and dependence on foreign forces, the present puppet ruling forces of south Korea are selling out the national dignity and interests, very often referring to the need to tighten the alliance with the US. They are a group of traitors without the slightest national self-respect who bring disgrace on their fellow countrymen by shamelessly fawning on their American master and carry forward the dirty history of toeing the line of outside forces. Hence, the US is intensifying its domination and subordination over south Korea. Moreover, all the elementary achievements for democracy won by the south Korean people at the cost of their blood are being trampled upon.
Recently it has been made public that south Korea and the US cooked up a plot of political terrorism aimed at offending the leadership of the revolution, army-people unity and dignified socialist system of the DPRK. Some spies of south Korea perpetrated espionage against the DPRK under the manipulation of the US and the south Korean puppet group. The largest-ever case is sparking off soaring indignation among the Korean army and people.
As long as the US military occupation and control of south Korea and the traitors who try to curry favour with the aggressors are left intact, the south Korean people will not be freed from misfortunes and sufferings and the Korean peninsula escaped from the danger of war once and for all.
The reality demands that the south Korean people turn out in the patriotic struggle for independence, democracy and national reunification while strongly opposing and rejecting the US domination and intervention and the moves of the puppet conservative group steeped in pro-Americanism and flunkeyism and confrontation with fellow countrymen, following the example of the participants in the uprising.
Herein lies the way to realize the aspiration of the participants, as well as the long-cherished desire of all the south Korean people for independence, democracy and national reunification.

ASSPUK, JISGE and UK KFA on the 55th anniversary of the south Korean April Popular Uprising

        London 20th of April Juche 104(2015) 
Today Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK a, the Juche Idea Study Group and  the UK Korean Friendship Association,ssued a joint statement on the occasion of the 55th  anniversary of the April Popular Uprising in south Korea.(referred to in south Korea as the "April 19th Revolution").
In April 1960 a mass uprising against the corrupt rule of south Korean puppet fascist dictator Syngham Rhee took place .Rhee had lived in the US in the 20s and 30s and had been brought back to south Korea in the 1940s by the Americans as their puppet.His rule was oppressive, corrupt and dictatorial and also turned south Korea into a colony and dependency of the US. Millions were killed by the Syngham Rhee puppet regime.

The April popular uprising was an explosion of the peoples wrath against Syngham Rhee and against the colonial rule of the US in south Korea.It was an anti-US anti- fascist struggle as well as a struggle for the independent reunification of Korea.
   As the great leader President KIM IL SUNG said
"The massive Popular Uprising in April 1960, in which the student youth of south Korea played the central role, overthrew the puppet government of Syngman Rhee, an old minion of US imperialism. This was an initial victory in the south Korean people’s struggle, and it dealt a heavy blow to the colonial rule of US imperialism.
The collapse of the puppet Syngman Rhee government signified, above all, the bankruptcy of all its anti-popular policies and its notorious “march north” outcry.
In their heroic struggle the people of south Korea demonstrated the revolutionary mettle of the Korean people, gained valuable experience id lessons and were greatly awakened politically.
After the April Popular Uprising, the situation in south Korea rapidly developed in favour of the revolution, and the masses became ore courageous to fight against US imperialism and its lackeys, for the dependent, peaceful reunification of the country"
The April Popular Uprising was a great anti-fascist , anti -imperialist uprising that opened a new chapter in the  history   of the struggle of the south Korean people for independence, democracy and reunification. It showed that  the'peaceful road' to change is but an illusion and that only by a violent uprising can the popular masses liberate themselves and achieve independence.
                    The April Popular Uprising was a great inspiration to the peoples of Asia in their liberation struggle and also to national liberation struggles throughout the world.
We(UK KFA,ASSPUK and JISGE) solemnly remember those who died in the struggle and pay a high tribute to their memory.The spirit of the April Popular uprisers is still alive today.
Today south Korea is still ruled by a corrupt dictatorship . In south Korea  the richer get ever richer and the poorer ever poorer and  fascist puppet rule and US imperialist troops still remain in south Korea 50 years after the April popular uprising.Let there be a 2nd  ,a 3rd and a 4th April Popular uprising in south Korea to overthrow the Park Keun Hye puppet fascist regime and drive US troops into the sea !

We support the struggle of the Anti- Imperialist National Democratic Front of south Korea and south Korean revolutionaries to realise democraticisation,independence and  reunifica

ASSPUK and JISGE on the 83rd anniversary of the foundation of the Korean People's Army (as the Anti-Japanese People's Guerrilla Army )

   ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF SONGUN POLITICS UK email                                                              

             London 12th of April Juche 103(2014)

The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK and Juche Idea Study Group of England issued the following joint statement on the occasion of the 83rd anniversary of the foundation of the Korean People's Revolutionary Army(KPRA) the forerunner of the modern Korean People's Army on the 25th of April.

       We Juche idea-Songun idea followers in the UK applaud the 83rd anniversary of the foundation of the KPA(25 April 1932) at a time when the KPA commanded by dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un is defending the achievements of Juche Korea from US imperialist aggression and is standing in acute confrontation with US imperialism. It is the KPA that is the only armed force in the world to have the slogan "Let Us Wipe Out the US imperialist aggressors ,sworn enemy of the Korean people". This is a most militant anti-imperialist revolutionary slogan that expresses the uncomromprising will of the KPA soldiers to settle accounts with US imperialism.

The foundation of  Anti-Japanese Peoples Guerrilla Army, in 1932, by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung, a gifted military strategist and ever -victorious iron willed brilliant commander, constitutes the bedrock of the Songun reovolution .

The Korean People’s Army, under the wise leadership of the great leader Marshal Kim Il Sung, took over and carried forward the traditions of the anti Japanese armed struggle. It is based solidly on revolutionary comradeship. Moreover a tradition of army -people unity was created and today flourishes in Songun Korea

Under the wise leadership of the great generalissimo's  Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Ilthe KPA grew into steel strong ranks each soldier being a match for a hundred enemy soldiers.The KPA inflicted a crushing defeat on the US imperialists in the great Fatherland Liberation War of 1950-1953.The KPA also defeated the US in the ‘Pueblo incident’,'EC121 incident’, ‘Panmunjom incident’ of 1976 and the 1994 elicopter downing incident

The KPA became a true Juche orientated revolutionary armed force and is the army of the party,the working class and the leader. New theories of warfare have been created.'Moreover under the leadership of the great leader generalissimo Kim Il Sung the KPA stuck to class and revolutionary principles, the revisionist and opportunist " non class" theories were soundly smashed, The leadership of the party over the armed forces was maintained and enhanced unlike some countries where socialism was frustrated,

                 The might of the KPA was further strengthened under the leadership of supreme commander Kim Jong Il ,who practised Songun politics giving priority to the KPA regarding it as the central pillar of the revolution. The KPA under the Songun revolutionary leadership of the great leader the KPA grew stronger in terms of ideology and politics but also materially. It is now equipped with the latest weaponry and has its own independent deterrent force. The KPA under the command of the Songun supreme commander Kim Jong Il and respected general Kim Jong Un smashed the provocations of the south Korean puppets in November 2010 turning Yongphyong island into sea of flames The KPA  now possesses the most up to date military hardware  including long range missiles and a nuclear deterrent.        

The 83 years of history of the Korean People's Army have been 83 years of victory and glory , The KPA , the vanguard force of the Songun revolution, has defeated the imperialists many times, and under the leadership of supreme commander Kim Jong Un will defeat them again.
                                       The glorious KPA the inheritor and continuer of the traditions of the Korean People's Revolutionary Army is the guerrilla army of dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un ready to win the  great war for national reunification.                                                                                                     
Today the destiny of world socialism depends on the rifles of the Korean People's Army headed by respected supreme commander Kim Jong Un. The DPRK is on the frontline of the struggle between socialism and imperialism. It stands guard over the independence of the DPRK and the people-centred socialism , the authentic socialism.  . We are convinced that the KPA can reliably defend the DPRK and win final victory under the leadership of Marshal Kim Jong Un.
