KCNA Detailed Report on All-People Resistance in S. Korea

Pyongyang, March 21 (KCNA) -- The Korean Central News Agency issued a detailed report Tuesday to inform the people of the historical facts of all-people resistance in south Korea which dealt a heavy blow at heinous traitor Park Geun Hye and shook the pro-U.S. fascist dictatorship to its every foundation.
    The report said:
    The all-people resistance that lasted more than 130 days since the end of October 2016 was an eruption of the pent-up wrath and indignation of the south Koreans against Park Geun Hye, chieftain of dictatorship and kingpin of corruption and irregularities, who pursued unpopular rule and sycophancy toward outsiders and escalated confrontation with the fellow countrymen in the north.
    Wrath against Park mounted high across the south Korean society as she turned south Korea into the medieval dark land and the barren land of democracy, livelihood and people's rights through the revival of "yusin" dictatorship and unpopular rule while treating people as dogs and pigs.
    It was against this backdrop that there broke out Park Geun Hye-Choe Sun Sil scandal, the hideous case of abuse of power, in October last.
    All the people, young and old, including workers, farmers, lawmakers from the opposition parties, professors, housewives, the aged, and university, high and middle school students and pupils and children, took to the streets holding candlelight.
    The declaration on the situation made public by the students and teachers of Ehwa Woman's University became a starting point of the movement for issuing declarations on the situation that swept universities.
    This movement was joined in by high school students, to say nothing of workers, farmers, academic and cultural and arts organizations across south Korea.
    Repugnancy against Park and distrust in the present regime grew even among the conservative forces.
    The candlelight action of south Koreans was unprecedented all-people resistance.
    The people's emergency action for resignation of Park Geun Hye regime was formed with the involvement of more than 1 550 organizations across south Korea, including the 2016 Headquarters for People's All-out Action and the Joint Council of Civic and Public Organizations, on Nov. 9 last year.
    The number of organizations that joined in the emergency action increased to more than 2 300 with the steady expansion of the ranks of protesters.
    All the people, irrespective of affiliation, political view, sex and age, took part in the action for impeachment of Park.
    In the period from the first candlelight action on Oct. 29 to the sixth candlelight action on Dec. 3, a total of over 5.03 million people took part in rallies and demonstrations in Seoul while a total of more than 1.28 million in provinces.
    The number of participants in more than 20 massive candlelight actions that began from the end of October last and lasted on March 11 to celebrate the impeachment of Park hit an all time high of a total of 17 million.
    The all-people resistance was held in diverse forms and ways.
    Media including newspapers and broadcasting services reported the candlelight actions as breaking news, detailing the public demand and stand.
    In keeping with the south Koreans' candlelight actions for the impeachment of Park, Koreans residing in different parts of the world including the U.S., Japan, Canada, France and Germany held solidarity candlelight actions, movement for issuing declarations on the situation and demonstrations.
    The all-people resistance of south Koreans for bringing about new society of independence, democracy and reunification, was a fierce battle against sycophants and traitors and conservative forces.
    The puppet group of conservatives issued a white paper praising the administrative records of Park in a desperate bid to maintain the worn-out policy against the nation, reunification and people.
    Puppet acting president Hwang Kyo An, an accomplice of Park, checked special investigation into Chongwadae and stood against the extension of the investigation period and the puppet Intelligence Service saw to it that mobile phones of high-ranking officials were scrapped to remove evidence of crimes.
    The civic and public organizations including the people's emergency action and people from all walks of life intensified their actions, saying that the candlelight revolution should not end as an uncompleted civic revolution just like the June resistance in 1987, and calling for bringing down Park by force if words do not work.
    In the face of determined struggle waged by the awakened people, the special investigation and the "constitutional court" could not but confirm the crimes of Park and make a final decision on impeachment on March 6 and 10.
    The all-people resistance which left a clear mark in the history of the south Koreans' struggle proved that force of injustice going against the desire of people and trend of the times while lording it over the people is bound to ruin and nothing can match the united strength of people based on justice and truth.
    The detailed report stressed that the miserable fate of Park and the conservative group is a deserved one they faced for the thrice-cursed crimes committed through sycophancy toward outsiders, escalated confrontation with the fellow countrymen, unpopular rule, fascist dictatorship and corruption and irregularities. -0
