PEACE IN KOREA, REUNFICATION IN KOREA, STAND WITH THE KOREAN PEOPLE
STAND, WITH THE DEMOCRATIC PEOPLES REPUBLC OF KOREA
It is with alarm that the Staffordshire Branch of the UK Korean Friendship Association views the present situation upon the Korean peninsula. The state of affairs in Korea and in North East Asia, has spiralled into a war type crisis. A war in Korea, would potentially develop into a global war, involving nuclear war weapons. So it is in the interests of world peace and security, that the situation in Korea remains peaceful.
What sparked off this current crisis was the false allegations made by the Pak Chung Hee Regime that the Korean Peoples Army had planted land mines in the southern half of the Demilitarized Zone. This assertion made by south Korea does not stand to any kind of logic. Using this false flag, the south Korean authorities resumed psychological warfare broadcasts aimed at the northern half of the DMZ. The population of the Kaesong area of the DPRK have to endure loud broadcasts going on 24 hours a days, 7 days a week. Violating The 1953 Armistice Agreement, the south Korean military fired 36 shells at civil police posts located within the northern side of the DMZ. The Pak Chung Hee appears hell bent on creating conditions of confrontation and conflict on the Korean peninsula, so to suppress aspirations of the population of south Korea who desire peaceful reunification with their brothers and sisters.
So in response to the extremely aggressive moves of the Pak Chung Hee Regime, the Supreme Leadership of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea put the frontline units of the Korean Peoples Army in a state of semi-war alertness, on August 21st. The Korean People want peace and independent reunification, but if attacked by the south Korean puppets and their US imperialist backers, the Korean People and Army will defend with determination, the bastion of socialism, independence and human dignity, the DPRK. If the forces of imperialism launch a war of aggression, the Korean People will raise up with a just war of liberation and reunification.
The Staffordshire Branch of the Korean Friendship calls upon the Peace and Labour Movements, and indeed all sectors of public opinion to stop the war manoeuvres of the south Korean regime and to express solidarity with the Korean People. We the friends of Korea in Staffordshire stand shoulder to shoulder with the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea, in defence of its socialism and sovereignty. Now is the time for all progressive people to rally around the just cause of Peoples Korea!
KOREA IS ONE!
LONG LIVE THE DEMOCRATIC PEOPLES REPUBLIC OF KOREA!!
