Statement of the Juche Idea Study Group of England on the 40th anniversary of the foundation of the International Institute of the Juche Idea
London 21st of March Juche 107(2018)
The Juche Idea Study Group of England (JISGE) today issued a statement on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the foundation of the International Institute of the Juche Idea on the 9th of April.
Following the international seminars on the Juche Idea that were held in September 1976 in
Antananarivo in the Democratic Republic of Madagascar and the historic international seminar on
the Juche Idea and in Pyongyang in September 1977 a decision was taken to establish an international co-ordination and guidance body for the study and dissemination of the Juche . The Pyongyang
international seminar on the Juche Idea in 1977 was attended by 89 delegations from 73 countries, a fact that reflected the growing attraction and significance of the Juche idea . The seminar declared that "ours is a new era of history , the era of independence , in which the people, once oppressed and humiliated have emerged as masters of the world and are hewing out their destinies independently and creatively " . The seminar adopted a declaration calling for the formation of an international
body for the study and dissemination of the Juche Idea . Thus in April in 1978 the International Institute of the Juche Idea(IIJI), with its headquarters in Tokyo , was founded amidst great acclaim. Veteran Juche Idea followers such as Kaoru Yasui and Genaro Carnero Checa played a big role
in the foundation as did the Indian public figure Dr Vishwanath .
The foundation of the IIJI fully reflected the fact that the Juche Idea had spread beyond the borders of Korea and had taken root in many countries of the world . The first Juche Idea study group was
formed in Mali, Africa in 1969 and Juche Idea Study Groups were formed in many countries of the world. Delegation after delegation visited Pyongyang . Revolutionaries in many countries earnestly sought the writings of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung .
Without a doubt the IIJI has played the vanguard role in the study and dissemination of the Juche Idea . Figures of the IIJI such as the late director general Dr Vishwanath and secretary general
Ogami Kenichi have worked tirelessly to promote the Juche idea. The IIJI has organised world Congresses on the Juche Idea , International and regional seminars involving many people including leading academic and political figures.
Our Juche Idea Study Group of England has participated in the events held by the International
Institute of the Juche Idea . We participated in the World Congress for Anti-imperialism and independence held in Caracas, Venezuela in 2005 and a delegation of the Juche Idea Study Group
of England was greatly honoured to participate in the World Congress of the Juche Idea in April 2012 and speak at it . We also participated in European Regional Seminars on the Juche Idea in 2003,
2014 and 2017.
We always remember the teaching of Dr Vishwanath the late director general of the IIJI " study the
Juche Idea , it costs you nothing but will pay in plenty " .
The Juche Idea Study Group of England salutes the IIJI on the 40th anniversary of its foundation
and wishes it every success for the future.
LONG LIVE THE JUCHE IDEA !
LONG LIVE THE INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE OF THE JUCHE IDEA
