The eighth round of all-people candlelight rally

The 8th round of all-people action was staged in Seoul and over 80 parts of south Korea simultaneously on Dec. 17, with attendance of 770 000 people of every degree.
In Seoul, hundreds of thousands of people conducted various actions for the immediate resignation of Park before holding candlelight rally.

650 000 protesters thronged into Gwanghwamun Plaza to hold a rally in demand of Park’s resignation and punishment of accomplices.
They strongly criticized Park for presenting a written refutation denying the reason of her impeachment to the “Constitutional Court”.
They noted that it is unbecoming for Park, adding that they should liquidate the Park regime that had been engrossed in the abuses of governance in tandem with the business groups, conservative media and the “National Intelligence Service”.

Prime minister Hwang Gyo-an has acted for the presidency to show his attitude against the public feeling without reflection, they censured, chanting slogans “Step down, Hwang who is pushing policy for Park” “Early impeachment” and “Arrest accomplices”. 
They said that it is high time to display the mettle of people and urged the “Constitutional Court” to make a prompt decision on impeachment of Park.
They turned out their candlelight for a minute during the rally and shouted slogans in demand of resignation of Park and prime minster Hwang Gyo-an. They marched to the Blue House, the official residence of the prime minister and the "Constitutional Court" after the end of rally.
Timed with the rally in Seoul, similar candlelight actions were held in Busan and all other parts of south Korea.
Tens of thousands of people marched along the street after the end of the rally, chanting slogans demanding the resignation of Park, arrest of business tycoons, the disbandment of the Saenuri Party and the speedy settlement of Park’s impeachment of the “Constitutional Court.”  
The south Korean people harden their determination to wage uninterrupted strong action until Park is faced a stern punishment by history, given that the conservative force has made desperate bid to reverse the current situation.  

Time Will Prove DPRK's Option Is Right: KCNA Commentary

 Pyongyang, December 24 (KCNA) -- World public is increasingly admiring the DPRK's push for building a socialist power.
    On December 17, the U.S. online Fox News in an Associated Press article dealing with change in the DPRK over the past five years said the DPRK's political base has been further consolidated under the guidance of supreme leader Kim Jong Un and great progress was made in the economy, national defence and cultural life.
    North Korea became a nuclear weapons state thanks to its line of simultaneously pushing forward economic construction and the building of nuclear force, the article noted, adding over the past five years north Korea's nuclear capacity was bolstered up and this period witnessed three of five nuclear tests conducted by it so far including the most powerful nuclear test and H-bomb test.
    The DPRK has now access to nuclear weapons capable of striking the U.S. forces in south Korea and Japan and on Guam and even the U.S. mainland, and has invigorated its domestic economy and made drastic achievements in cultural field, the article pointed out, adding: Now it is trying to conquer the moon within ten years.
    Media of Spain and Kuwait also gave wide publicity to the eye-opening successes registered by the DPRK during the past five years.
    This can not but be clear understanding and appreciation by the world society of the great successes made by the DPRK in building a socialist power under the wise guidance of Marshal Kim Jong Un and validity of the DPRK's cause advancing toward the final victory.
    Over the past five years the U.S. has enforced hostile policy toward the DPRK to bring it down, after setting it as the first target of attack for realizing the U.S. strategy for aggression and domination over Asia-Pacific.
    It has cooked up gangster-like "sanctions resolutions" one after another while persistently clinging to its "strategic patience" aimed at bringing down the DPRK's social system.
    It has run amuck to start a nuclear war while conducting war exercises under various codenames every year after shipping huge nuclear strategic assets into the Korean Peninsula and its surrounding areas.
    In those days nobody checked the U.S. nuclear threat and arbitrary practices against the DPRK and no one kept it from encroaching upon the latter's sovereignty, vital right and right to development.
    The DPRK turned out in all-out confrontation with the U.S. imperialists while simultaneously pushing forward economic construction and the building of nuclear force by dint of self-reliance and self-development in the face of the latter's daily-increased moves for a nuclear war and nuclear threat and blackmail.
    In this period it had access to H-bomb and passed through the final gate for rounding off its national nuclear force by conducting a nuclear warhead explosion test.
    Today the Korean people are continuously making world-startling miracles in building a socialist power with full confidence in victory being backed by the powerful war deterrence.
    The reality clearly proves the validity of the DPRK's idea and cause that the powerful nuclear force guarantees peace and prosperity and dignity of the nation.
    The DPRK's just option will remain unchanged for all ages. -0

    A lot of factories and enterprises witnessed the production of a great number of those who fulfilled plans for two years and three years and pacesetters of Mallima spirit and also the practice of heroic deeds.
    Kim Il Sung University and more than 110 universities across the country put teaching on pragmatic, integrated and modern basis and put classrooms and experiment and practice rooms on a multi-functional basis, and progress was made in enforcing the universal 12-year compulsory education system and scientific and technological dissemination bases were arranged in a great number of factories, enterprises and co-op farms.
    Woman footballers raised two World Cups one after another and literature and art pieces of high ideological value and artistry were created, notably song "Advancing Socialism", lengthy novel "Field Train" among the cycle of novels "Immortal Guidance", music and dance story "Life Story of Youth" and feature film "Story of My Family".
    The press report stressed that the general goal of the 200-day campaign was attained and, thereby, a firm ground was laid for attaining the goal of the five-year strategy for national economic development. -0-

ASSPUK,JISGE, UK KFA and UK Preparatory Committee For the 2017 Gathering to Praise the Great Persons Born of Mt Paektu hail the publication of " On Improving the Role of the UAWK in Accomplishing the Juche-Oriented Socialist Cause"


London 16th of December Juche 105(2016)
     The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK),the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE),the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA) and the UK Preparatory Committee For the 2017 Gathering to Praise the Great Persons Born of Mt Paektu issued a joint statement on the publication of the work of dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN "On Improving the Role of the UAWK in Accomplishing the Juche-Oriented Socialist Cause" on the 8th of December.
  In the work which takes the form of a letter to  the participants of the 8th Congress of the Union of Agricultural Working People of Korea. What the work shows is the high importance that dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN  and the  Workers' Party of Korea pay to agriculture and agricultural working people.
   Respected Marshal KIM JONG UN gives an important definition of the UAWK ,its and missions
" The UAWK is a mass-based political organization of our socialist agricultural workers which was founded and has developed under the wise guidance of the great leaders, and a reliable transmission belt and peripheral organization of the Party."
 Basically the UAWK is firstly a mass organisation, secondly an organisation of socialist agricultural workers , thirdly it has developed under the guidance of the great leaders President KIM IL SUNG and Chairman KIM JONG IL, and fourthly  it is the transmission belt of the WPK. It is important that respected Marshal KIM JONG UN has defined the working farmers of Korea as 'socialist agricultural working people' as distinct from peasants. Moreover liberalistic tendencies of separating mass organisation from party leadership are decisively rejected.
   The traditions of the  UAWK go back to the days of the anti-Japanese armed struggle when the great leader President KIM IL SUNG founded  a revolutionary and patriotic and Juche-orienatated peasants organisation.
   Respected Marshal KIM JONG UN recalled the great exploits of the great leaders comrade KIM IL SUNG and comrade KIM JONG IL in building the UAWK  right from the days of the Agarian Reform right through to the days of building a thriving socialist country.
    In the work respected Marshal KIM JONG UN puts forward the central and programmatic tasks of the union
 " Today the UAWK and agricultural workers are faced with the heavy and yet honourable task for making a contribution to hastening the final victory of the Juche-oriented socialist cause by carrying out the socialist rural theses true to the programme of modelling the whole society on Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism advanced at the Seventh Congress of the Workers' Party of Korea"
  The "Theses on the Socialist Rural Question " is the great strategic programme for building
Juche-based  socialist agriculture. That was laid down by President KIM IL SUNG  , it is most significant that respected Marshal KIM JONG UN is not stepping back from implementing the
Socialist Rural Theses but energising  the UAWK to carry it out . With a clear vision respected
Marshal KIM JONG UN says that the the UAWK must carry out the three revolutions , that is the ideological revolution, cultural and technical revolution.Very correctly the primacy of the ideological revolution is stressed by the Marshal. He urges that members of the UAWK equip themselves with the spirit of self-reliance and self-development and the revolutionary soldier spirit . This is like a tonic to stop the inroads of imperialism into the DPRK's socialist agriculture. Vigilance against
ideological and cultural infiltration is urged "They should steadily intensify ideological education and struggle among the agricultural workers to thwart the imperialists' moves for ideological and cultural infiltration so as to allow no room for the capitalist ideology and culture and alien lifestyle to infiltrate and to ensure that various kinds of outdated ideological remnants and non-socialist practices are not revealed among them"
   Dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN also recognises the crucial need to increase agricultural
production ,linking it with the defence of socialism saying that "The agricultural front is an outpost in the battle for defending socialism. We must farm well and thus solve the problem of food for the people; only then can we defend our style of socialism and build a powerful socialist country successfully."
   Once the lines and policies of dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN  outlined in the letter are
fully carried then the DPRK will decisively smash the lies and slanders about Juche-based socialist agriculture and crown the struggle to build a thriving socialist country with victory and glory.
  To conclude the work ""On Improving the Role of the UAWK in Accomplishing the Juche-Oriented Socialist Cause"is a very important and valuable work that is a guide for the work of building the UAWK as the authentic Kimilsungist-Kimjongilist socialist agicultural working people's organisation and developing agriculture.

Report of ASSPUK and JISGE Meeting to mark the 5th Anniversary of the passing away of the great leader comrade KIM JONG Il


The ASSPUK, JISGE and UK KFA held a meeting on the 10th of December  to commemorate the 5th anniversary of the passing away of the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL . The meeting was attended by members of the ASSPUK, JISGE and UK KFA as well as the New Communist Party of Britain headed by its National Chairman Alexander Kempshall. It was also attended by diplomatic representatives of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea in London.
    Chairman Dr Dermot Hudson opened the meeting saying that " December 17th is recalled by the Korean people as a day of great national loss , and it is recalled by the world people , particularly friends of People's Korea , as a day of sadness . It was on this day some fives years ago that the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL, chairman of the National Defence Commission of the Democratic People's Republic and general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea , passed away whilst on a train giving on the spot-guidance . He had been working hard to develop the national economy of the DPRK and improve living standards of the people." Chairman Dr Hudson also read out a message from David Munoz UK KFA Organisation Secretary which said "Comrade Kim Jong Il was undoubtedly the great communist of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, when comrade Kim Jong Il after the demise of President Kim Il Sung in 1994 and the colapse of the socialist camp said, "Do not expect changes of me´´ Despite the isolation of a criminal blockade, sanctioned, unsupported and during the hard years of the Arduous March, the Korean people instead of letting themselves be carried away with the defeatism and revisionism towards the capitalist course as other countries, The DPRK worked harder thanks to their great ideological awareness to defend and develop their socialism, the envy of the world today
    Dr Hudson also referred to the 25th anniversary of the election of the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL as supreme commander of the Korean People's Army saying " The great Leader comrade Kim Jong Il administered Songun politics fully by building up the KPA as the core force of the Korean revolution. He ensured that the KPA was not only strong in arms but strong in ideology and politics. . Supreme Commander KIM JONG IL fully promoted the revolutionary soldier spirit, the epitome of the militant Songun ideology, which pulsated throughout society leading to world-startling feats like the construction of the Anbyon power station. Thus the 25 years of leader's Kim Jong Il's command of the Korean People's Army were years of great achievements in which the KPA has been strengthened greatly
 Shaun Pickford secretary general of the Juche Idea Study Group of England and chairman of Staffordshire KFA addressed the meeting and said in part ". KIM JONG IL correctly understood the pivotal role of philosophy in the development of society, that in other words, the revolution and socialist construction can only be successful with an ideology reflecting the independent aspirations of the popular masses. To continue with the proceeding working class ideology was not enough to keep up with the demands of the 21st century. KIM JONG IL greatest contribution to the evolution of philosophy, was to systematized the Juche Idea of KIM IL SUNG into to a comprehensive structure. "On The Juche Idea", published in March, 1982 by KIM JONG IL can be regarded as a manifesto of the Juche ideology. Since the early 1960s, KIM JONG IL published many hundreds of works on the Juche Idea and on the originality of the Juche philosophy. Such works as "Let Us Advance Under The Banner Of Marxism-Leninism And The Juche Idea", "On Problems Of Education In The Juche Idea", "Abuses Of Socialism Are Intolerable" and "Socialism Is A Science", have made an immense advancement to the growth of revolutionary ideology. KIM JONG UN formulated Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism as a single ideological system and consolidated the philosophy of the President and the General.
Comrade Kim Song Gi Minister Counsellor of the DPRK Embassy said that the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL embodied the most noble patriotism. Comrade KIM JONG IL taught people to value even a blade of grass and everything in the country. Now the Korean people are winning victory after victory by applying KIM JONG IL's lofty patriotism. Even though the imperialists are stepping up sanctions the Korean people will win by applying the patriotism of KIM JONG IL
  Alexander Kempshall National Chairman of the New Communist Party delivered a message of greetings from the New Communist Party Alexander Meads spoke about the 99th anniversary of the birth of Madame KIM JONG SUK saying that "Comrade KIM JONG SUK an indomitable communist revolutionary fighter blazed a trail for the women's emancipation movement in Asia and the world . She serves as a role model for anti-imperialist women revolutionaries throughout the world, her teachings show the correct way forward for the women's movement even in the imperialist countries. Today in the DPRK women are playing an increasing role in society thanks to the leadership of the dear respected Marshal KIM JONG  UN who is helping to make sure that the ideas of Madame KIM JONG SUK on women's emancipation are carried forward."
 Dr  Dermot Hudson said that the DPRK is the true model of women's liberation and is carrying forward the ideas of Madame KIM JONG SUK. Dr Hudson spoke about the 5th anniversary of the appointment of dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN as supreme commander of the Korean People's Army pointing out that " As a result of the assumption of the position of Supreme commander of the Korean People's Army by the dear respected leader Marshal KIM JONG UN the continuity of the Songun revolutionary leadership has been maintained. The KPA has been built up as an even more powerful revolutionary armed force. Dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN is following in the footsteps of the great generalissimo’s of Mt Paektu KIM IL SUNG and KIM JONG IL"
  Dr Hudson speaking about the south Korean situation warned that although Park Geun Hye is impeached it is no use to replace one puppet with another , a change of system is needed. Henrik Nydquist gave a report on the Pyongyang International Film Festival and Wonsan Air Festival. Q and A was held. There was a discussion on what Trump's election means and also about expanding and consolidating the activities and base of the ASSPUK, JISGE and UK KFA.

ASSPUK, JISGE, UK KFA and UK Preparatory Committee For the 2017 Gathering to Praise the Great Persons Born of Mt Paektu on the 44th anniversary of the DPRK Socialist Constitution

   London 16th of December Juche 105(2016)
    The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK),the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE),the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA) and the UK Preparatory Committee For the 2017 Gathering to Praise the Great Persons Born of Mt Paektu issued a joint statement on  the 44th anniversary of the Socialist Constitution of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK)on the 27th of December ;                
     In a few weeks from now on the 27th of December  the DPRK will mark the 44th anniversary of the Socialist Constitution. The DPRK Socialist Constitution provides genuine human rights for the people not paper ones or tickbox exercises.
  The Socialist Constitution of the DPRK is a unique Juche-orientated constitution unknown in the world as not only defines the character of the state and rights and duties of citizens but is also programme for building socialism and consolidating the rights of the Korean people. It provides  a solid legal framework for the building of socialism in the DPRK . It was authored and drafted by the great leader President Kim Il Sung and adopted by the Supreme People's Assembly of  the DPRK on the 27th of December 1972. Its  promulgation  legally clarified the nature of the advanced socialist system centred on the people  of the DPRK.
   Under the Socialist Constitution the people of the DPRK are guaranteed independence and creativity. They have legal rights unknown in capitalist countries,the right to work Article 70 ,right to relaxation article 71 right to free medical care article 72,right to education article 73.  At present in the capitalist countries there are many unemployed and also people starving. Under the provisions of the DPRK Socialist Constitution(Article 25) taxation has been abolished and the material wealth used for improving the living standards of the people.
   The DPRK Socialist Constitution expressly prohibits child labour in Article 31. Women are guaranteed equal rights with men in Article 77.Citzens are guaranteed the inviolablity of the person in Article 79.
  Moreover unlike bourgeois states deputies to the Supreme Peoples  Assembly(the highest law-making body) are accountable to the people and can be recalled if they lose the trust of the people Article 7. This is a contrast to the capitalist countries where elected representatives are out of touch with the people and just rake in huge salaries(£74,000 per year in the UK which is more
than 11 times the amount of what is paid to old age pensioners) and expenses for doing nothing at all. In the DPRK there is real people's democracy , socialist democracy not the fake democracy of capitalist states where people just vote for the lesser of the two evils  every 5th or so year.
   The Socialist Constitution of the DPRK is a most superior constitution that gives people rights that are unheard of capitalist countries . The  Socialist Constitution is the bedrock of human rights in the DPRK. It shows that the allegations about human rights in the DPRK are false and that real human rights are guaranteed by law.
  Today under the Songun revolutionary leadership of dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un the Korean people are achieving further success in the implementation of the provisions of the Socialist Constitution. The people of the DPRK are forging ahead in the struggle to build a thriving socialist nation.

Social Care for the Elderly -the difference between Britain and the DPRK

"A typical band D council tax bill of £1,530 this year would rise by £46 next year to fund social care, on top of a discretionary general increase of 2%." this is capitalist Britain's way of funding care for the elderly. A measure that I suspect will prove extremely divisive as it pits the old against the young and middle aged. What is needed a socialist solution to the elderly care crisis which would consist of redistributing wealth . The billions in City banks and hedgefunds could pay for the costs of funding welfare for the elderly rather than forcing workers to pay more taxes.
In the Juche and socialist DPRK, the people's paradise, there is no taxation but the DPRK provides wonderful facilities for the elderly such as this rest home

The Daily Mirror joins in the anti-DPRK lie campaign-commentary by ASSPUK, JISGE and UK KFA

Image result for dprk children
real children in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Recently the "Daily Mirror " along with other UK tabloid newspapers carried
reports about to so-called "forced child labour " in the DPRK alleging "human rights" violations .
   The "Mirror" ran a story on the 14th of December claiming it had film and pictures of "child labour " in the DPRK, that the DPRK Supreme Leadership was making children as young as five years old 'build a railway line'.
   The footage was pretty suspect and dubious to say the least. Nothing in the picture actually identified the place as the DPRK, there were no obvious DPRK symbolism or slogans to be seen. Some of the children appeared to wear Western style clothes and were not in the distinctive uniform of the Korean Children’s Union nor did they have the badges of the Korean Children's Union. Another question is were the adults forcing the children to do this work? or at least giving them some supervision ?. Is this because in fact this  is not what the authors claim it is but has been deliberately staged so the adults are the ones actually behind the camera directing the children in the "drama" .It is quite possible that this has been filmed using actors in a third country.Some anti-DPRK documentaries have actually been filmed in south Korea,China, Thailand and even northern Ireland.In some case real footage of the DPRK has been mixed with fake material to give it a look of authenticity.
   A smoking gun in the article is that it supposedly comes from secret "informers ".So we are in the realm of the "dodgy defectors ",shadowy figures who claim various things like people being executed only for the said person to appear alive and well a few months later.This has the hallmarks of the south Korean "National Intelligence Service ",an organisation that has little to do with real intelligence but churns out false stories about the DPRK on a daily and even hourly basis.
  Child labour is strictly illegal in the DPRK.It is prohibited by several different laws.Article 31 of the Socialist Constitution of the DPRK expressly forbids child labour. Child labour is,according to the article 15 of the Socialist Labour Law and article 19 of law on children’s rights, strictly prohibited and institutions, enterprises,entities and individuals cannot employ children.Those who employ minors under working age are subject to criminal responsibility,according to article 181 of the criminal law.This makes the DPRK's position on child labour  very clear.Moreover it would surely be counter-productive to have a railway line built by children because the work would then have to checked by adults and possibly done over again.
  In fact the DPRK highly values children.The great leader President KIM IL SUNG called them the"kings of the country",indeed there are palaces for the children in the DPRK.In Pyongyang there is the state of the art Mangyondae Children's Palace and the Pyongyang Children's Palace.Visiting the DPRK many times we saw wonderful places for children such as the Changgwang Kindergarten and the Pyongyang Orphans School.It is totally inconceivable that the DPRK would ill treat children.
  The Sun "and "Mirror" are running anti-DPRK stories daily as part of the psychological preparation for British forces to be involved in a second Korean War .The "Sun" tends to be read by British squaddies and their WAGs ,families etc and to a lesser extent so is the Mirror. Both are inciting hatred of the DPRK and the supreme leadership amongst their readers to make them hate the DPRK and accept the idea of war against the DPRK.Both the "Sun" and "Mirror" are part of the monopoly capitalist media lie machine.
  As to the "socialist " or "Labour " Daily Mirror in reality this paper has always been close to the British establishment:  "And the most famous whistleblower of all, Peter (Spycatcher) Wright, revealed that MI5 had agents in newspapers and publishing companies whose main role was to warn them of any forthcoming “embarrassing publications”. Wright also disclosed that the Daily Mirror tycoon, Cecil King, “was a longstanding agent of ours” who “made it clear he would publish anything MI5 might care to leak in his direction”. Selective details about Wilson and his secretary, Marcia Falkender, were leaked by the intelligence services to sympathetic Fleet Street journalists. Wright comments: “No wonder Wilson was later to claim that he was the victim of a plot” King was also closely involved in a scheme in 1968 to oust Prime Minister Harold Wilson and replace him with a coalition headed by Lord Mountbatten
Hugh Cudlipp, editorial director of the Mirror from 1952 to 1974, was also closely linked to intelligence, according to Chris Horrie, in his recently published history of the newspaper. David Walker, the Mirror’s foreign correspondent in the 1950s, was named as an MI6 agent following a security scandal while another Mirror journalist, Stanley Bonnet, admitted working for MI5 in the 1980s investigating the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. "The Mirror was
also owned for a long time by Robert Maxwell , a MI6 and Mossad asset.The "Mirror " ran a false story about former Miners leader Arthur Scargill.
  We ask of the "Mirror "did MI6 tell you to run this story ?how much did the south Korean puppets pay you to print the story? Shame on the "Daily Mirror" !

The seventh round of all-people candlelight rally

The all-people actions against Park Geun-hye were launched again in Seoul and at more than 80 places in south Korea on Dec. 10.
1.04 million people took part in the candlelight actions.
Broad segments of people conducted preliminary rallies in different parts of Seoul, yelling out Park’s resignation.
After the rally, hundreds of thousands of people flocked to the Gwanghwamun Plaza and started march from three routes to reach up to one hundred meters before the Blue House.
They chanted slogans “Prompt step down of Park” and “Arrest Park Geun-hye, Kim Gi-choon and Woo-Byung-woo” toward the Cheongwadae.
A candlelit action took place at the Gwanghwamun Plaza.
Protesters thronged into Gwanghwamun Plaza and the turnout swelled to over 800 000 people.
The speakers at the rally said that the motion on Park’s impeachment was passed through the parliament, but it is no more than the start and warned Park that the people fix their eyes on her.
Calling upon the people to call the passage of the motion on Park’s impeachment as the “civilian revolution”, they asserted that Park should leave office immediately at the bidding of the people.
They conducted propaganda activities in demand of Park’s arrest.
The protesters threw away pictures of lawmakers of the pro-Park faction within the Saenuri Party, who came out against the motion on Park’s impeachment, on the ground of the plaza to tread their pictures down.
Darkness closed in the plaza, however, shouts of “Park, Out” were heard.
They launched the second candlelit action towards the Cheongwadae.
The people held a meeting before Cheongwadae till late at night to urge Park Geun-hye's resignation.
Such actions were also staged in Busan, Daejeon, Daegu and other areas.
The south Korean people impeached Park from the beginning of their candlelit rally with the result that the National Assembly approved the motion on her impeachment, they noted.
As Park said that she would respect the intention of the parliament, she should step down herself before the Constitutional Court makes a decision, they noted.
The retirement of head of Saenuri Party from his parliamentary career and political circle is the last apology to the people, they said.
Noting that the conservative force would raise their heads if the people are careless of their moves, they stressed that they would hold lighted candles until Park is ousted from the presidency and corrupted elements such as the Saenuri Party and conglomerate are liquidated.

Roaring Candlelight



Five years on the 30th of December 2011 dear respected comrade KIM JONG UN the Political Bureau of the Workers’ Party of Korea, the ruling party of People's Korea representing millions of members, took the decision to appoint to the dear respected leader Marshal KIM JONG UN as Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army.
  The question of the successor is one that is a key one in the revolution. Indeed the question of the successor determines the fate of the revolution. Dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN is the great successor to the Songun revolutionary cause. He visited the historic Seoul Ryu Kyong Su no 105 tank division of the Korean People's Army on the 1st of January 2012, this is the unit where the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL began his Songun revolutionary leadership (and is also the first tank unit to go into Seoul during the liberation of south Korea during the last Korean war). This action signified to the whole world that the Songun revolutionary leadership would continue. It smashed the dreams of the hidden enemies of  People's Korea who wanted to see the Songun revolutionary  line of independence derailed and the DPRK opt for "reform" and "opening up". People's Korea would continue along the path of Songun, independence and socialism.
  Respected Marshal KIM JONG UN has performed truly amazing and remarkable exploits as the Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army during the past five years. He has visited many frontline units in areas that were tense and flashpoints defying the US imperialists. On one occasion he visited a far flung island travelling on a small boat on a rough sea.

  In March 2013 when the situation on the Korean peninsula became very tense due to the war exercises of the US imperialists and south Korean puppets Respected KIM JONG UN convened an emergency operation meeting in the supreme headquarters concerning the firing mission of the strategic rocket units of the KPA on March 29, 2013.
Saying that the strategic units of the KPA should attack the bases of the US aggressive troops in the mainland of the US, Hawaii, the Guam and operation area of Pacific Ocean and those stationed in south Korea if the US imperialists deploy huge strategic forces to fire recklessly toward the DPRK, respected KIM JONG UN examined the attacking plan of the KPA strategic rocket units and put a final signature on it. This resolute approach of KIM JONG UN frightened the US imperialists out of their wits and they backed down .
During 2014, the respected Marshal KIM JONG UN gave unceasing on-the-spot-guidance to the KPA units, including strategic rocket units, in defiance of the threat of the US imperialists.
   In August 2015 when another very tense situation arose dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN ordered frontline units of the Korean People’s Army to go over to a semi-wartime state from 17:00 hours on Friday 21st of August 2015. Again the determined and resolute stance of Supreme Commander Marshal KIM JONG UN thwarted the aggressive moves of the south Korean puppets and US imperialist masters.
    Supreme Commander KIM JONG UN saying that "However fair-minded and just we are, we may become a bargaining chip for the strong and our precious history inherited with blood will loose  its shine in a moment if we are weak", has built the self-defence potentials of the DPRK at a great rate particularly the line of building the economy and nuclear force in parallel. Under the leadership of dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN the DPRK has carried out a total of three nuclear tests; one on the 13th of February 2013, the test of the DPRK’s first H bomb on the 6th of January 2016 and the successful test of the nuclear warhead on the 9th of September 2016. Great advances have been made in the field of missile technology . The DPRK has joined the unique club of nations that have submarine launched ballistic missiles.

    Visting the DPRK in September 2016 I was there when the nuclear test was conducted and was able to see on the TV the successful test of a road launched ICBM conducted in the presence of dar respected Marshal KIM JONG UN.  It was a sight to behold , the missiles soared majestically into the sky one after the other , a demonstration of the Juche-orientated firepower of the Korean People's Army commanded by dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN. Thus the DPRK has built up a powerful Songun-based nuclear strike force capable of striking back at the US imperialists who have so many times threatened to incincerate the DPRK and lay waste to the land of the Morning Calm . Whether the US , UNSC, UK , Japan or anyone else likes it , the DPRK is now a fully fledged nuclear power with effective deterrent capablities.
  The US imperialist experts who once dismissed the DPRK’s military capabilities now admit that it only a matter of time before the DPRK has the capability to mount a nuclear strike on the US mainland and destroy it.Thanks to respected Marshal KIM JONG UN  People's Korea will not be a bargaining chip for anyonese nor will it fall a victim to competition between big powers.
  There is no doubt that dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN  is a most dynamic and energetic supreme commander who personally oversees missile tests like no other leader in the world .Marshal KIM JONG UN is the man that the US imperialists fear the most.
   Supreme Commander Marshal KIM JONG UN is ready to liberate south Korea and reunify Korea should the south Korean puppets and US imperialists be foolhardy enouugh to ignite a war(of course the DPRK has put proposals for peaceful reunification on the table and earnestly seeks the independent  and peaceful reunification of Korea). In August 2012 he declared "Counter provocations with an immediate counteroffensive, and an aggressive war with a war of justice for the country’s reunification–this is our principled stand and unshakable will." !
 More recently dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN watched  a drill of the KPA Special Forces to capture the storm the Chongwadae or Blue House (the south Korean puppet "presidential "mansion) showing that the Korean People's Army can liberate south Korea , smash the south Korean puppet ruling organs and reunify Korea.
Dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN a daring and audacious iron-willed brilliant commander of Songun who will reunify Korea!

Immortal Feats for Building Revolutionary Militia Forces

Pyongyang, December 15 (KCNA) -- In the DPRK, the Worker-Peasant Red Guards (WPRG) is one of the self-reliant national defence forces, together with the Korean People's Army.
    Members of the WPRG have fulfilled their sacred duty in building a socialist economic power and defending the country, each taking a rifle in one hand and a hammer or sickle in the other.
    President Kim Il Sung created the tradition of building militia forces in the flames of anti-Japanese armed struggle.
    Leader Kim Jong Il carried on the President's idea of building the Juche-oriented militia forces to further strengthen the WPRG.
    He made public such famous works as "The Worker-Peasant Red Guards Is Powerful Militia Forces of Our Party" and "On the Invincibility of the All-People Defence System" to prove in a scientific way that the all-people defence system set forth by the President was a new-type defence system established in the DPRK for the first time in history.
    He also indicated the tasks and ways for further strengthening the WPRG.
    In late January Juche 51 (1962) when visiting Ohyon-ri in Yonan County, South Hwanghae Province with the President, Kim Jong Il gave precious instructions for intensifying combat and political training of WPRG members to defend their birthplaces and working sites.
    In his days at Kim Il Sung University, he personally took part in a WPRG column of the military parade held on the occasion of the 30th founding anniversary of the Korean People's Army.
    He also guided the training of WPRG members and wisely led the work to fully establish the well-organized commanding and training systems and revolutionary military climate in the WPRG.
    In September Juche 100 (2011), the last year of his great life, he saw to it that the 63rd anniversary of the DPRK was splendidly celebrated with the WPRG parade to demonstrate the validity and vitality of the military line of self-reliant defence of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) and the great strength of militia forces all over the world.
    Now, the WPRG is displaying its might as the revolutionary armed forces of the WPK under the wise leadership of Marshal
Kim Jong Un. -0-

Puppet’s disgraceful behavior

Wednesday, 14 December 2016



Monday 19th of December 2011 is a day that is etched in my mind permanently along with the 9th of July 1994.It was a cold, bleak and miserable December morning. In December the days are too short and weather cold. To me December is always an unlucky and fateful month(my father died in December).I awoke early from an uneasy and unrefreshing sleep at around 6am . It was pitch black outside.

   I found on my phone a text message from a friend which read something like "Very sad , a great loss ,condolence's to all" . I did not understand what this meant, who could have passed away ?. I staggered to the kitchen and turned the radio on . BBC Radio Four announced starkly and in a rather disrespectful tone that the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL had passed away ! I could not believe it. It reminded me of some 17 years before on the 9th of July when the great leader President KIM IL SUNG passed away and I heard that announcement on BBC Radio Four. I resolved to check whether the news was true as the BBC have lied on many occasions or simply parroted the propaganda of the south Korean puppets. I struggled to my computer and logged onto the KCNA website. With a deep sigh I saw there in black and white on the KCNA website that the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL had passed away whilst on a train going to give on-the-spot guidance on December 17th. I later learnt that the dear respected leader Marshal KIM JONG UN had the Innocent of the demise delayed because he did not want ruin the Korean people's day off on Sunday with the announcement.
   I watched the scenes of unparallelled and deep grief on the TV with tears coming into my eyes feeling a deep sense of loss. Later I went with other progressives and Juche idea followers to the DPRK Embassy in London and laid some flowers in front of the portrait of the great generalissimo KIM JONG IL.

  What made the loss even more deeper was that it was only a few months before the 70th anniversary of the birth of the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL on the 16th of February 2012 and Korean people and world Juche idea followers had planned the World Juche Congress. Moreover March 2012 would see the 30th anniversary of the publication of the immortal treatise "ON THE JUCHE IDEA "
   The great leader comrade KIM JONG IL was a truly great and remarkable leader . The period of his leadership over the Korean revolution spanned several decades. Indeed from the start of the Songun-based revolutionary leadership on the 25 of August 1960 to the demise of the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL the period was 51 years and taking the start of work of the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL at the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea the period was 47 years , no other world statesman or leader  had such a long span of leadership. For example Lenin only led the Soviet revolution for 4 years and Stalin led the Soviet party and government for about 30 years.

  Visiting the DPRK in June 1994 I witnessed the celebrations of the 30th anniversary of the start of work of the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL at the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea .We visited an exhibition of his works. My eyes were caught by a copy of "ON THE JUCHE IDEA ". This is without doubt one of the most important works that have ever been written in history . I remember reading it for the first time in the 1980s. I had become a convert to Juche in the mid 1980s after spending tortuous years without purpose looking for the correct road and the path of a truly human philosophy. At the time blockheaded and obstinate dogmatists tried to block the study of the Juche Idea ,even sneering at and deriding the great Juche idea.Such dogmatists insisted on only Marxism-Leninism and that only the Soviet Union had the true path to socialism and even that socialism could not be built in a small country !!! One day I opened a copy of the "JUCHE IDEA " that  I had got  and read the following passage " the Juche idea makes it possible to apply and develop the preceding revolutionary theories to suit the requirements ofrevolutionary practice in our time. In particular, it maintains the position of firmly defending and realizing the independence of the working class and other working masses, and thus makes it possible to accurately identify and eliminate all kinds of opportunism, including revisionism which gives up the cause of revolution halfway or denies class struggle, and uphold the class principle and the spirit of uninterrupted revolution in the revolutionary theories of the working class. "
  Thus I can to learn that rather from being "deviation from the class struggle " as the dogmatists prattled  the Juche Idea was(and is ,and always will be )  a class based and totally revolutionary theory. Indeed the dogmatists came unstuck as the Soviet Union collapsed but Peoples Korea guided by Juche and led by the great leaders President KIM IL SUNG and KIM JONG IL held high the socialist  red flag, the red flag of Juche. Reading  the treatise "ON THE JUCHE IDEA " proved to be a great revelation to me and at the same a great inspiration. I I have never looked back since then
   Great generalissimo KIM JONG IL was well known as the great successor to the Juche revolutionary cause started by the great leader President KIM IL SUNG .After the great leader
President KIM IL SUNG passed away in July 1994 and the DPRK was hit by natural disasters as well the blockade and sanctions of the imperialists. Some wicked forces of the imperialist world entertained the idea that there would be what they called a "change " in the DPRK  or a 'policy switch' what they of course really meant was that the DPRK would be go the same way as the USSR after JV Stalin died and Molotov , Malenkov and Kaganvich were purged from the leadership or
China after Chairman Mao died .Comrade KIM JONG IL declaring "Expect No Change from Me " made sure that the DPRK stuck to the socialist road come what may and confounded the imperialists, reactionaries , revisionists and traitors !. 

     The great leader comrade KIM JONG IL  defended the independence of the DPRK that was under threat from the imperialists by administering Songun (military first ) politics. He faced down the US imperialists in the showdown without gunfire . After the disappearance of large parts of the socialist camp, the imperialists clamoured about the DPRK being "isolated  " but the great leader
comrade KIM JONG IL's skillful diplomacy backed up by the Songun politics opened up a new era of diplomatic relations for the DPRK in which it established diplomatic relations with many states  such as the UK, EU and other countries. The Songun politics of KIM JONG IL led to a breakthrough in the struggle for reunification  and the June 15 era of "By Our Nation itself " came about leading to gains in inter-Korean co-operation and reconciliation.
   The DPRK faced unprecedented challenges and difficulties in the 1990s but comrade KIM JONG IL proved to be a most skillful leader and guide who led the people to recover from the damage caused by floods and typhoons and onto the path of steady self-reliant economic growth. 
  This is why we Juche Idea and Songun idea followers of the UK remember the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL and why his achievements will shine for tens of thousands of years , in fact they will shine until the end of the earth !
