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
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
This movement was joined in by high school students, to say nothing
of workers, farmers, academic and cultural and arts organizations across
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
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
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
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
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
