   16th of January Juche 107 (2018)
 The Association for the Study of Songun Poltics UK(ASSPUK) , the Juche Idea Study Group of England (JISGE) and UK Korean Friendship Association Association (UK KFA) released the following article about the anniversary of the raid on the Chongwadae by south Korean armed guerrillas:
  On the 21st of January it will the 50th anniversary of the attack on the Chongwadae or Blue House the presidential mansion of south Korean fascist puppet ruler Park Chung Hee by a group of south Korean revolutionary armed guerrillas.
  On the night of the 21st of January a group of south Korean guerrillas advanced to within 500 metres of the Chongwadae and opened fire.In the ensuing battle more than 400 US troops were killed or wounded as well south Korean puppet troops.
   The south Korean puppets have falsely claimed that the incident was the result of "infiltration the north ". This is nonsense. For one thing it would have been extremely difficult to infiltrate across the heavily guarded De Militarised Zone with its minefields and get as far as Seoul. The fascist regime of Park Chung Hee was notorious for faking up spy cases and 'infiltration' incidents in order to jail or put to death dissidents (such as the two "People's  Revolutionary Party " cases )
   Armed guerrilla struggle in south Korea during arose because of the acute social, class and national contradictions  as well as the fascist oppression of the people by the south Korean puppet regime  and the double and treble exploitation  by the US imperialists  and comprador monopoly capitalists.  It did not come  as the result of outside forces or 'armed infiltration ' etc.The successive fascist dictatorships in south Korea denied the people of all possibilities for peaceful and democratic struggle so there was no alternative but to turn to armed struggle.Armed struggle had a long history in south Korea going back to the 1940s when there were armed uprisings against Syngham Rhee and the US imperialist overlords. After the end of the Korean war guerrillas such as Jong Sun Dok fought the south Korean puppet regime in the mountains until the 1960s. In the 1960s the militant anti-imperialists took up arms to fight against the Park Chung Hee fascist puppet regime that was oppressing and exploiting the people and selling out the country to its masters the US imperialists and Japanese militarists. These were righteous armed struggles.
    We salute the memory of the heroic guerrillas of south Korea who fought for liberation and national reunification and recall their exploits.
  They did not die in vain because the descendant of the murderous fascist dictator Park Chung Hee, Park Geun Hye , was overthrown as a result of the struggle of the Candlelight marchers.
 If the present south Korean regime takes the road of independence and breaks with the US imperialists then prospects for the peaceful reunification of Korea based on independence will open up !
