UK KFA Pickets of the US and south Korean puppet embassies 25.05.2017

The UK Korean Friendship Association together with the Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK and Juche Idea Study Group picketed the south Korean puppet embassy and US embassy on the 25th of May 2017. Pickets were attended by members of the UK KFA, ASSPUK and JISGE. The pickets were carried out in difficult conditions created by the terrorist incident in Manchester and the imposition of semi-martial law by the reactionary government of Theresa May(troops,including the Parachute regiment, have been now deployed on the streets of the UK) The south Korean puppet embassy was was picketed from 3.30 to 4.30 . Dr Dermot Hudson President of the ASSPUK , chairman of the JISGE and chairman of UK KFA made a speech opposing the deployment of THAAD in south Korea saying it invites the danger of nuclear war on the Korean peninsula. Furthermore he said that south Korea is a colony and a puppet of the US where US troops lord it over the south Korean people. He said that the south Korean people and peace activists staged a protest against the deployment of THAAD at Seongju in south Korea on the 13th of May . Dr Hudson praised the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front of south Korea saying that "AINDF will wage more dynamic anti-US anti-war struggle together with the progressive people of the world and will bring about a new victory in the struggle to realize independence of south Korea and the national reunification, holding higher the banner of the June 15 joint declaration under the brilliant beams of the Songun politics of Marshal Kim Jong Un" The Reunification Flag along with the DPRK flag and UK KFA banner were raised high outside the south Korean puppet embassy . Placards reading NO TO THAAD and US OUT OF KOREA and VICTORY TO THE AINDF ! were diplayed From 5pm to 6.30pm UK KFA together with the ASSPUK and JISGE picketed the the US Embassy. A member of the Central Committee of the New Communist Party was also present . Dr Hudson said that they were there to " protest against US war threats and sanctions against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea which is the fortress of independence and socialism in the world and homeland of the Juche idea The fascistic Trump administration is threatening the DPRK with aircraft carriers and now apparently increased UNSC sanctions (well we have just been to the DPRK and seen that the sanctions have zero effect , absolutely zero effect) . Sanctions represent an undeclared war against the country that they target. Trump has sent a 2nd aircraft carrier to Korean waters as well as 2 submarines. There is talk of pre-emptive strikes against People’s Korea with Trump saying that he does not rule out the military option . Recently George Friedman of Geopolitical Futures stated that “The US is preparing to attack North Korea” and pointed out that he USS Carl Vinson supercarrier and USS Ronald Reagan were both within striking distance of North Korea. Additionally, more than 100 F-16 aircraft are conducting daily exercises in the area, a tactic that foreshadowed the beginning of Desert Storm in 1991. F-35 aircraft have also been deployed to the area, and US government representatives are expected to brief Guam on civil defense, terrorism, and Korea on May 31. Trumps threats against the DPRK are a disgusting example of a big power trying to bully a small country into submission with its strength. Visiting the DPRK in April this year our delegation concluded that Korea will indeed be reunified under the leadership of respected Marshal KIM JONG UN and that the US , Britain , UNSC and others need to accept this and not go to war as it will be a senseless waste of lives . In the past Britain sent troops to fight in the Korean war and also in Malaya, Cyprus, Yemen and northern Ireland , the deaths of British service people could have been avoided if they had stayed at home. Today the US occupies south Korea with over 30,000 troops stationed there and a 1,000 nuclear weapons . The south Korean people are forced to pay colonial tribute to the US in the form of upkeep expenses. People’s Korea is a peace loving state that does not have a single overseas bases but the US has hundreds of overseas bases and troops which form a global empire straddling across the world. We are here to demand the US stops its war threats against People’s Korea. The US needs to pull back its aircraft carriers and nuclear submarines as a most basic first step but it also needs to completely and unconditionally withdraw it troops and weapons from south Korea . It needs to revoke the sanctions against the DPRK and end its hostile policy towards the DPRK ! US OUT OF KOREA ! NO TO SANCTIONS NO TO WAR ! Dr Hudson also made a speech praising the launch of the Hwasong-12 saying that the DPRK had the right to self-defence and the Hwasong-12 rocket was the proud fruit of Juche and self-reliance . Picketers chanted US OUT OF KOREA ! YANKEE GO HOME ! NO TO SANCTIONS,NO TO WAR ! KOREA IS ONE ! DEFEND PEOPLE'S KOREA ! LONG LIVE PEOPLE'S KOREA! VICTORY TO THE KOREAN PEOPLE'S ARMY LONG LIVE JUCHE ! The DPRK flag , UK KFA banner and placards were raised. Placards read US OUT OF KOREA ! NO TO SANCTIONS , NO TO WAR ! Leaflets were handed out
