UK KFA on the 71st anniversary of Korea's liberation


                               London 8th of August 2016
  The UK Korea Friendship Association issued the following statement today on  the occasion  of the 71st anniversary of the liberation of Korea from Japanese imperialism Korea was liberated from the iron chains of Japanese imperialism thanks to the struggle carried out by the heroic guerrilla fighters of the Anti-Japanese People's Guerrilla Army(later known as the Korean People's Revolutionary Army) led and commanded by the great leader President Kim Il Sung. Korea's liberation was not the gift of an outside force but achieved by its own efforts.
   Imperialist Japan, an ally of Nazi Germany and fascist Italy, had annexed Korea in 1910 . They had severely repressed the Korean people even forbidding the use of the Korean language in Korea as well as plundering Korea of valuable resources. The Japanese imperialists committed unspeakable   atrocities such as forcing Korean women into sexual slavery and killing many Korean people.
     The 20 year long  anti-Japanese armed struggle led by the great leader general Kim Il Sung was a thunderbolt of independence that shattered forever the oppression of Japanese imperialist colonial rule over Korea. Korea became a nation once again  instead of being part of the "Greater East Asia Prosperity Sphere" of the deranged fascist Samurai's. It was on the 9th of August 1945, that the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung gave the order for the  units of the Korean People's Revolutionary Army(KPRA) to start the final operation for  the liberation of Korea. Under the blows of the heroic KPRA led by the great leader President Kim Il Sung  , Japanese imperialism crumbled and Korea became independent on the 15th of August. Cheers of the 30 million Korean people reverberated the length and breadth of the land.
   With the achievement of independence on August 15th 1945 the Korean people gained a new life of independence and creativity becoming masters of their own fate. A new era of national resurrection under the banner of the Juche idea and self-reliance . The 70 years of independence have seen many great achievements. The DPRK has become a global nuclear power and a satellite launcher.
   Today under the leadership of respected Marshal Kim Jong Un and the Workers' Party of Korea the DPRK is conssolidating its independence under the banner of Songun and is rushing forward to the bright morrow of a thriving socialist country.

   UK KFA congratulates the Korean people on the 71st anniversary of their liberation from Japanese colonial rule .We wish them well in the work to defend independence under the banner of Juche and achieve  reunification independently and peacefully under the leadership of dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un
