                     London 13th June Juche 104(2015)
The Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK, Juche Idea Study Group of England and the UK Korean Friendship Association today issued a joint statement on the 13th anniversary of the killing of south Korean schoolgirls Sin Hyo Sun and Sim Mi Son by the US imperialist aggressor troops in south Korea
              On the 13th of June 2002 two 13 year old school girls were run over by a US armoured vehicle and killed horribly. The US imperialist aggressor troops in south Korea are guilty of taking the lives of two innocent school children  who were walking home from school. This atrocity by the US imperialists took Sin Hyo Sun and Sim Mi Son from their families and friends. Had they lived the two girls would now be in their 20s , starting out in life with hopes and aspirations. However life with its opportunities and challenges was taken from them by the US imperialists. No one was jailed for the crime.

             South Korea does not have the right to try US soldiers who commit serious crimes on south Korean soil to try them. The US under the "Status of Forces Agreement " enjoys 'extraterritoriality'. This gives them colonial privileges in south Korea. It means that they can swagger around and commit serious crimes in south Korea and get off scot-free.
                                                         The killing of  Sin Hyo Sun and Sim Mi Son by US troops proves beyond doubt that the US imperialists are the sworn enemies of the Korean people with whom they cannot co-exist. The US imperialists killed millions of Korean people during the last Korean war including massacres at Sinchon Ri in the north and Nogun Ri in the south.
                                    The crimes of the US imperialists in south Korea continue to this day. Since the killings of Sin Hyo Sun and Sim Mi Son numerous crimes such as murder, robbery and rape have been committed by the US troops in south Korea.
 The presence of US imperialist troops in south Korea is intolerable for the south Korean people. The US imperialist troops in south Korea are the root of crimes and depravity .
          In the independent socialist DPRK there are no US forces and the people are free from the US occupation. Children can play happily without the fear of being killed or injured by Yankee soldiers or suffering a fate worse than death. The US imperialists falsely accuse the DPRK of human rights violations but it is the US imperialists who violate the human rights of the south Korean people on a daily basis.

  Although 13 years have passed since the killings of Sin Hyo Sun and Sim Mi Son no one has been held to account for their killings. We, the ASSPUK, JISGE and UK KFA, demand that a proper investigation is held and those responsible are fully punished . Furthermore we demand that the US troops, the root cause of the suffering of the south Korean people  are pulled out of south Korea at once and unconditionally.
