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 British Committee for Peace and Reunification on the Korean Peninsula (BSCPRKP) issued a joint statement in support of the 2017 Report on Human Rights Abuses in South Korea" issued by the DPRK National Reunification Institute (NRI) :
We applaud the DPRK NRI for issuing this very important and timely report on the human rights
situation in south Korea. These days the DPRK is falsely slandered and accused of having "confrontation camps " and "repression " , none of which is true, but the mainstream media ignore the fact that in fact massive human rights violations occur all the time in south Korea .
The south Korean people have fallen victims to US colonial rule and suffer under the new style colonialism of the US imperialists. Crimes against humanity such as murder, rape, violence and robbery committed by GIs present in south Korea steadily increase. The south Korean people are also doubly and triply exploited by the US imperialists.
Many people had hoped that the change in regime in south Korea that occured in May of this year would herald a new era in human rights as well in advancing towards reunification. However the hopes and dreams of the south Korean people have been dashed because the new south Korean puppet regime carries is the same as the preceding ones , however the former leader of the dissolved Unified Progressive Party and leader of the south Korean Korean Confederation of Trade Unions and many other prisoners of conscience are still in though they were detained for no reason under the preceding Park Geun Hye fascist regime. The new 'liberal ' regime has not cancel the ban on the teachers union and legalised it.
The south Korean puppets have refused to repatriate the DPRK citizen Ms Kim Ryon Hui who is detained in south Korea but wants to return to her family in the DPRK . The south Korean puppets are also holding the DPRK waitresses who were abducted and refusing to return them or allow them to meet their families from the DPRK.
South Korea stands out as the worst ever human rights abuser in the world . We hope that this report will get a wide readership. We believe that the progressive , labour , peace and anti-imperialist movements should do more to expose human rights abuses in south Korea and campaign in support of prisoners of conscience in south Korea and democratic organisations in south Korea.
