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.
