The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK), the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE) and the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA) today issued a joint statement in support of the White Paper of the Korean Jurists Committee issued on the 14th of August;
We strongly support the White paper of the Korean Jurists Committee as it draws attention , a timely manner, the danger posed by the revival of Japanese militarism as exemplified by the moves to change various Japanese laws. The danger of Japanese militarism is all too often ignored or underestimated by many in the world. The changes to Japanese laws will tear away the mask of the so-called 'Pacifist Constitution ' and enable the Japanese reactionaries to embark on an expansionist and militarist programme and to intervene in other parts of the world . This is a grave threat to world peace and the sovereignty of many nations particularly those in the Asia- Pacific region who suffered so much due to the aggression of Japan. It would a disaster for the world people if Japanese armed forces intervene in other countries openly .
Japan is a war criminal state that committed untold crimes before and during the Second World War . It is no exaggeration to say that its crimes actually exceeded those committed by the Nazis in Europe . Moreover Japan has never paid reparations or compensation to its victims unlike Germany .
The 1945 Potsdam declaration by the allied powers stipulated the disarmament of Japan and also stated "Japan shall be permitted to maintain such industries as will sustain her economy and permit the exaction of just reparations in kind, but not those which would enable her to re-arm for war". The revision of laws put forward by the Abe clique in Japan are totally contrary
to this .
Japan is also revising internal laws along fascist lines in order to stifle dissent against the emerging militarism .
The world should not be threatened by the spectre of the Japanese empire, the 'East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere 'rising from the dead to stalk the earth once again.
We believe that the White Paper of the Korean Jurists Committee needs a wide readership . A worldwide campaign against the revival of Japanese militarism must be activated.
