"WITH FIRM CONVICTION, WE WILL EXPAND THE ACTIVITY OF STUDY AND DISSEMINATION OF JUCHE IDEA AND THE ACTIVITIES TO DEFEND INDEPENDENCE OF KOREA.
Honoured Academicians of KASS
Firstly, please allow me to say how great it is to be here in Pyongyang, the capital of Juche Korea, the capital of the world’s most independent and anti-imperialist country, to celebrate the 105th anniversary of the birth of the great leader President Kim Il Sung and the 5th anniversary of the election of the dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN as the supreme leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
The great leader President KIM IL SUNG led the anti-imperialist national liberation struggle of the Korean people against Japanese imperialism and won independence for the Korean people. They became masters of their own destiny .President KIM IL SUNG authored the Juche Idea the acme of progressive ideas of humanity. He was the founder of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the founder of the great Workers’ Party of Korea .Throughout his life President KIM IL SUNG was a tireless fighter against US imperialism and also against modern revisionism and all forms of opportunism. The great leader President KIM IL SUNG was indeed a giant of the international communist movement and its elder statesman. He was a true people’s leader who always mixed with the people and believed that “The people are my god “.President KIM IL SUNG established an advanced socialist system in Korea centred upon the popular masses making Korea into the model country of socialism. President KIM IL SUNG was the greatest of great leaders.
The Juche revolutionary cause of the great leaders President KIM IL SUNG and Chairman KIM JONG IL is today continued by the dear respected leader Marshal KIM JONG UN, the Chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea. Dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN who embodies the true spirit of Mt Paektu is leading the Korean revolution forward at Mallima speed by applying the self-development first idea and the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance . The self-development first idea is an application of the great Juche idea.
As dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN stressed "Worship of big countries and dependence on foreign forces is the road to national ruin; self-development alone is the road to sustaining the dignity of our country and our nation and to paving a broad avenue for the revolution and construction”
These are very wise words spoken by dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN who is distinguishing himself as a great leader of the Korean people. In order to successfully carry out the revolution and construction the worship of big countries and dependence on foreign forces must be absolutely rejected. Following the twists and turns of the big powers only leads to defeat in the revolution and dependence on foreign forces is the road to ruin as shown by the experience of those countries that have depended on outside forces . Juche Korea is a shining beacon of independence that is defying the US imperialists and the big power chauvinists.
Today inspired by the Juche idea and upholding the self-development first idea the Korean people are forging ahead in the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance . In the years since the holding of the holding of the historic World Juche Congress the progress of the DPRK has been beyond remarkable , it has been truly spectacular , street after street has been completed and everything all kinds of cultural and recreational facilities have been created . Moreover the Korean people are carrying out the line of simultaneously the building of the economy and nuclear force in parallel as decided by the March 2013 plenary meeting of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea. Several nuclear tests including the test of the Hydrogen bomb have been carried out and the DPRK has considerably upgraded its ballistic missile technology. Thus the self-defence capabilities of the DPRK have grown meaning that the DPRK can honourably defend its independence against the aggression of US imperialism. This is testimony to the validity and durability of the Juche Idea and Songun Idea.
The socialism of Juche in People’s Korea is a most superior people centred socialism in which people enjoy virtually free of charge housing , free medical care, free education, full employment and social insurance without paying a penny of tax.
Seeing the great achievements of Juche Korea which are made despite the unprecedentedly harsh sanctions and blockades of the US imperialists and other hostile forces we have been become even more firmly of the absolute truth of Juche, believing that it is the ideology that everyone should follow. There is no doubt that the Juche Idea is the most revolutionary anti-imperialist idea that shows the way to independence and liberation as well as the building of a new society that is free from exploitation , oppression ,domination and subjugation . The Juche Idea is valid not just for the Korean people or the third world but for also for the people of the imperialist countries as well. The imperialists and reactionaries oppose the Juche Idea but its attraction is growing stronger and stronger even though the enemy does everything to obstruct the study of the Juche Idea.
Therefore we resolve to further expand our study and dissemination of the Juche idea , the great idea that lights the way to independence. Over the past year the Juche Idea Study Group of England and Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK have found new ways of improving our study of the Juche Idea such as organising seminars using Skype(video link) in addition to our seminars and meetings . It is a very important task devolving on us Juche Idea and Songun idea followers in the UK to massively expand our activities in studying the Juche idea both in scope and depth. We plan to further expand our activities over the coming year.
These days the independence of Juche Korea has come under harsh and abnormal attack by the US imperialists as well as the big power chauvinists and international revisionists, who had betrayed the cause of socialism and long time ago. The US imperialists and their followers have imposed sanctions after sanctions either through the UNSC or independently. Together with their south Korean puppets they have carried out large scale military exercises against the DPRK . They have also created the anti-DPRK human rights campaign .
It is therefore an important task to increase our activities in to defend the independence of Juche Korea against this unprecedented threat. In the UK we have had pickets of the US and south Korean puppet embassies as well as the British defence ministry and the Malaysian embassy. We must step up this kind of activity and we urge Juche Idea followers and true friends of Juche Korea in other countries to do the same. Defence of Juche Korea should be the number one priority of progressive people throughout the globe.
We hope that this gathering will make a grand and significant contribution to the study and dissemination of the Juche Idea and the defence of the independence of Juche Idea!
GLORY TO THE MEMORY OF THE GREAT LEADER
COMRADE KIM IL SUNG !
LONG LIVE THE DEAR RESPECTED LEADER MARSHAL KIM JONG UN !
LONG LIVE JUCHE KOREA , CITADEL OF INDEPENDENCE AND SOCIALISM !
