It was participated in by members of the ASSPUK, JISGE and UK KFA from London , Stole on Trent and also an international guest from Greece.Andy Brooks general secretary of the New Communist Party participated in the meeting .
Opening the meeting Dr Dermot Hudson President of the Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK , Chairman of the JISGE and chairman of UK KFA said that
dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN is loved and respected by the world people. His name is known throughout the world whereas hardly anyone had heard of the present or past rulers of south Korea ! If you put in the name KIM JONG UN into google many hundreds of thousands of articles come up.Dr Hudson also said that " Recently , a cafe in Gaza(Palestinian territory illegally occupied by the Israeli Zionists) carried a picture of Marshal KIM JONG UN and offered an 80 per cent discount to any DPRK citizen. This reflects of course the prestige and respect that respected Marshal KIM JONG UN has amongst the oppressed people's of the world. The DPRK is one of the few countries outside of the Arab world that does not recognise the Zionist entity of Israel( in fact right from the start the DPRK never recognised Israel unlike the Soviet Union ) so Palestinian people , long victimised by the Israelis, admire the DPRK and Marshal KIM JONG UN for this . The DPRK has always supported the Palestinian and Arab peoples in their struggle against imperialism and Zionism. During the 1973 war the DPRK sent pilots of the Korean People's Army to fight with the Egyptian Air Force against the Zionist aggressors . Respected Marshal KIM JONG UN has ensured that the DPRK has kept up the tradition of support for Palestine,still refusing to recognise Israel and adhered to the line of anti-Zionism, anti-imperialism. The DPRK Foreign Ministry issued a statement denouncing Trump's insane scheme to
move the US Embassy in Israel to the city of Kuds ,which is a grave affront and insult to the Palestinian people.
In December 2017 the Communist Party of India (Marxist), which is one of the biggest parties in India used the image of Marshal KIM JONG UN on one of its election posters in Kerala state . A few years ago Russian demonstrators carried the portrait of Marshal KIM JONG UN .
What all the above shows this shows is that the fact that dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN is acknowledged as a defender of socialism, great anti-imperialist and champion of the poor and oppressed of the world.
When dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN took the reins of leadership at the end of 2011 , the imperialists and capitalists hoped that he would abandon the road of Juche , the road of socialism and go for 'reform ' and 'opening up ' , introducing capitalism . The mainstream or imperialist media spread persistent rumours about this . However respected Marshal KIM JONG UN pledged to follow the lines and ideas of the great leaders comrades KIM IL SUNG and KIM JONG IL . He visited
the historic Seoul Ryu Kyong Su no 105 tank division of the Korean People's Army on January 1st 2012 the very place where the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL began his Songun revolutionary leadership on August 25 1960. This signalled to the world that Marshal KIM JONG UN would continue the Songun Revolutionary leadership. Moreover on the 15th of April 2012 , the 100th anniversary of the birth of the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG , respected Marshal KIM JONG UN declared that 'The permanent strategy of our revolution and its final victory lie in going straight along the road of independence, the road of Songun, the road of socialism, indicated by President Kim Il Sung and General Kim Jong Il. '. Thus Marshal KIM JONG UN made independence , Songun and socialism , the basic cornerstones of his policies and leadership . Later in
2013 he defeated the modern factionalist gang that had evilly schemed to restore capitalism in the DPRK and made the DPRK a colony of US imperialism and Chinese revisionism.
People's Korea under the leadership of respected Marshal KIM JONG UN is known to the people's of the world as a socialist fortress . It is inspires the world progressive people with confidence . In the DPRK people-orientated policies are being carried out such as virtually free housing , free education, free health and full employment . The DPRK is looked up as a model of socialism .
Respected Marshal KIM JONG UN made sure that the DPRK stuck to line of anti-US,anti-imperialist struggle . He has taken a firm and uncompromising stance against US imperialism and turned the DPRK into a nuclear power of Juche and an advanced rocket power .A the same time
anti-imperialist ,anti-US ,class education has been stepped up for example the Sinchon Museum was rebuilt and expanded , a Central Class Education Hall built near to the Fatherland Liberation War Museum and new anti-US posters produced . Probably the DPRK is most anti-US,anti-imperialist country in the world rivalled by none !
For all these achievements dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN is respected loved by the world people."
