In memory of two girls

On Dec. 1, the students of the Progressive Federation of Students of south Korea held memorial service for two girls who was killed by an armored car of the US forces in south Korea 17 years ago.
The two girls were brutally killed by the armored vehicle of the US forces in south Korea in 2002. At that time, the nationwide candlelight rallies took place across south Korea to express their anger to the US.

They paid silent tribute to the schoolgirls. They denounced that the US army covered up the case without informing the bereaved families, the contents of joint investigation with the US was not true, and the outrageous attitude of the then US President Bush to the south Korean people who demanded apology of the US President and revision of SOFA.
The nationwide candlelight resistance has been started with the death of two schoolgirls and it has been developed into the ones against import of the US beef and for impeachment of Park Geun-hye, they said.
The unequal south Korea-US relations should be terminated as the US has put pressure on south Korea to increase the defense cost sharing by five times, contaminated environment of the US military bases and carried out illegal germ weapon test, they stressed.
And they demanded withdrawal of the US troops from south Korea.

A REVOLUTIONARY LIFE – REMEMBERING COMRADE KIM JONG IL by James Taylor, KFA UK.

A REVOLUTIONARY LIFE – REMEMBERING COMRADE KIM JONG IL by James Taylor, KFA UK.
                                         


“Expect no change from me”. So said Comrade Kim Jong Il at a time when the imperialist world was talking of the possibility of ‘reform and opening up’ taking place in People’s Korea, when the revisionist socialist countries had submitted to capitalist barbarity and their achievements torn up in the face of an onslaught of shock privatisations, unemployment, increasing homelessness and despair. The working classes of Eastern Europe and Russia were finding out the hard way how neoliberalism imposes itself. Comrade Kim Jong Il ensured that Korea continued down the victorious road of socialist construction and wisely made no apologies for it, elucidating his views in numerous important works, from On the Juche Idea in 1982 and, more extensively, in his 1994 treatise Socialism Is A Science - an essential work for defending the gains of socialism and showing how the Juche and Songun ideas have safeguarded the Korean revolution against the betrayals that occurred elsewhere, an analysis anyone who wants a better world should read. He inherited the noble cause of Kim Il Sung and carried it through, attacking all forms of flunkeyism and dogmatism (not enough socialist leaders have recognised how damaging these traits can be), frustrating the plans of US imperialism to stifle and strangle the DPRK and built a strong, prosperous socialist country that survives to this day as an example to progressives and revolutionaries throughout the world. For this he was demonised by the imperialist world throughout his lifetime, and each one tried to outdo each other for how cheap, racist and low they could go in their attacks. But as he also received 401 decorations, medals and honorary titles from foreign countries throughout his lifetime, many of which can be seen in the International Friendship Exhibition, it’s unlikely the attacks of these lesser men made any difference.
Kim Jong Il  was  born  as the son  of  President  Kim Il Sung  and the  anti-Japanese  war  heroine Kim Jong Suk at the Paektusan Secret Camp on February 16, 1942. He came from a revolutionary family of patriots that also included his great-great-grandfather Kim Ung U, who performed great feats in the sinking of the US merchant ship General Sherman. His grandmother Kang Pan Sok fought for the emancipation of women and for Korea’s liberation. His granduncle Kim Hyong Gwon, his uncle Kim Chol Ju, and maternal uncles Kim Ki Jun and Kim Ki Song threw themselves in the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle and dedicated their lives to the cause of national liberation. But it was his father Kim Il Sung who became the liberator of Korea, first from Japanese colonialism and then from US-led imperialism, who forged the Korean revolution into a communist proletarian revolution under the Juche and Songun ideas that ensure Korea would remain independent and rely on itself for its own self-defense. The division of Korea has caused great suffering for Koreans, and Kim Jong Il upheld Kim Il Sung’s instructions to work hard for national reunification and the expulsion of all imperialist troops from the Korean peninsula, the only way to guarantee peace and independence.
Throughout his childhood and student years he taught his compatriots the works of his father - organising a study group for the biography of Kim Il Sung - and worked to establish Juche amongst his rising generation. He later accompanied his father on trips around the country, observing his guidance of the revolution and construction. He attended Kim Il Sung University and was admitted to the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) on July 22, 1961, later appointed an officer of the WPK Central Committee in June 1964 and successively held the posts of section chief, deputy department director and department director of the WPK CC, before being elected member of the WPK CC at the Fifth Plenary Meeting of the Fifth WPK CC in October 1972, and secretary of the WPK CC at the Seventh Plenary Meeting of the Fifth WPK CC in September 1973. The army and people of the DPRK held Kim Jong Il in high esteem as the eternal General Secretary of the WPK and the eternal Chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission at the Fourth Conference of the WPK in April 2012 and at the Fifth Session of the 12th SPA in April 2012, respectively.
It’s worth quoting from his excellent treatise Socialism is a Science, mentioned earlier, on a subject that the western media often berated him for. He gives an unarguable response:
"The "human rights" advertised by the imperialists are privileges of the rich, privileges to do anything on the strength of money. The imperialists do not recognize the right of unemployed people to work, or the right of orphans or people without support to eat and survive, for instance, as human rights. As they do not grant working people elementary rights to existence and as they pursue anti-popular policies and policies of racial and national discrimination and colonialism, the imperialists have no right to speak about human rights."
As well as his revolutionary activities, his writings stretch to many volumes, covering subjects from politics to architecture, cinema, opera and music. It was his last wishes that the whole of society be modelled on the Juche Idea and Korea firmly stay on the course of genuine socialist construction. This has been taken up by his successor, Marshal Kim Jong Un, who has declared the whole of society will be modelled on the principles of Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism. It is under this banner that we followers of the DPRK will march under today, and more proudly than ever. We mourn the passing of Comrade Kim Jong Il, but know his immortal contributions will live forever in the hearts and minds of all revolutionaries and communists.
LONG LIVE PEOPLE’S KOREA!
LONG LIVE GENERAL KIM JONG IL!
LONG LIVE THE JUCHE AND SONGUN IDEAS! MANSE!






Speech to the 7th of December meeting Remembering comrade KIM JONG IL a great fighter for independence by Dr Dermot Hudson

Today we mark the solemn occasion of the 8th anniversary of the passing away of the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL . Our UK Korean Friendship Association and Juche Idea Study Group of England upholds the memory of comrade KIM JONG IL and remembers his great revolutionary activities. The achievements of comrade KIM JONG IL are varied and manifold so it is difficult to recount them in a short space of time.
Throughout his life the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL worked hard , day and night for the people saying that if the people want it then we must make flowers bloom on a rock.
Chairman KIM JONG IL passed away whilst working ( he actually worked past retirement age in the DPRK) on the cold wintry day 17th of December 2011 .
Chairman KIM JONG IL was a true people's leader who worked all his life for the people often denying himself rest and sleep , he never took it easy .He was always dressed in simple clothes. He immersed himself in giving on the spot-guidance ,travelling some 669,844 miles which is the equivalent of going around the world 17 times.
   
Comrade KIM JONG IL was the successor to the great leader comrade
KIM IL SUNG . When comrade KIM JONG IL started working at the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea in June 1964 comrade KIM JONG IL made sure the ideology of comrade KIM IL SUNG , the core of which is the Juche idea . Juche does not simply mean self-reliance , it stipulates that humans are the masters of their destiny and have the power to carve it . Juche , therefore, rejects all kinds of superstitious and fatalistic notions about the fate of humans either being predetermined or controlled by an unseen mysterious deity existing outside time and space .comrade Kim Jong Il defended the purity of the Juche Idea and developed it in depth. He systematised and enriched the Juche idea in his historic 1982 thesis "On the Juche Idea ". This work constitutes an almanac of the Juche idea which clarified its philosophical essence and that man has independence, consciousness and creativity. Thus the Juche idea shines out a philosophy for achieving the independence of the popular masses . The Juche idea is a powerful weapon for achieving human emancipation from all kinds of misery and oppression. Today the Juche Idea is studied by people in many parts of the globe , 1,000 Juche Idea Study groups exist in the world including our very own Juche Idea Study Group of England.
When comrade KIM JONG IL took the baton of supreme leadership in the mid 1990s the DPRK faced multiple challenges , difficulties and obstacles .The country was mourning the loss of the great leader President KIM IL SUNG, repeated severe natural disasters hit the DPRK continuously ,the imperialists tightened their sanctions against the DPRK , the world socialist market collapsed depriving the DPRK of 80 per cent of its foreign trade and there was no one willing to lift a finger to help the DPRK . The doom mongers of the imperialist media predicted the end of the DPRK. Others claimed that the DPRK would 'reform' and 'open up' but Chairman KIM JONG IL declared "Expect No Change from Me " . The imperialist scenario for the DPRK was for the overthrow of the socialist system in the DPRK or for a policy change which eventually led to the dismantling of the socialist system in the DPRK . Comrade KIM JONG IL resisted it .Comrade KIM JONG IL was determined to stick to the Juche idea come what may  and the Juche idea is the bedrock of the DPRK’s independence and its durability.
 The DPRK’s resistance to imperialist regime change is a great example for us when you consider that some progressive regimes like Bolivia were overthrown almost with a snap of the finger.
   Indeed comrade KIM JONG IL should be remembered for opposing imperialist globalisation.He wrote the excellent work “On Preserving the Juche Character and National Character of the Revolution and Construction" which was a powerful anti-imperialist manifesto against globalisation .Comrade KIM JONG IL wrote “We must smash up the vicious and cunning policy of the imperialists who seek to obliterate nations and the reactionary doctrines which try to justify this policy.”


 Comrade KIM JONG IL  rallied the people to overcome the difficulties . During this difficult period the DPRK was able to construct the Anbyon Power station and other large structures as well as launching its first artificial satellite the Kwangmysong 1 on the 31st of August 1998. Comrade KIM JONG IL stressed that self-reliance was the key to overcoming difficulties and smashing the blockade of the imperialists . Self-reliance is the secret weapon of People’s Korea against the imperialists . In my opinion the imperialists fear self-reliance more than nuclear weapons , indeed it is more powerful than a 1,000 nuclear weapons.
   Comrade KIM JONG IL also practised the Songun  or Army-first policy in order to defend People's Korea and secure its independence .
  Thanks to the leadership of comrade KIM JONG IL the situation was turned around and the DPRK prospered . Some of the countries that had conspired to isolate and stifle the DPRK even opened diplomatic relations with the DPRK , one after the other . The fortitude of comrade KIM JONG IL brought about the first -ever inter-Korean summit,in 55 years , on June 15 2000  .
   The legacy bequeathed to history by the great leader comrade 
KIM JONG IL is today’s People’s Korea which is led by dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN who is continuing with the lines and policies of comrade KIM JONG IL  . This year I have visited the DPRK 3 times including in October when I visited with a delegation of the Juche Idea Study Group of England , Juche Idea Study Group of Scotland and UK KFA . During my visits I did not see one homeless person or beggar . There appeared to be no effect of the sanctions as shops seemed well stocked . The prices in the hotel shop were the same as in September 2018. The price of a Pyongyang Metro ticket is about 3p in British money and is unchanged from at least September 2012 . We were able to see self-reliance in action at the KIM JONG SUK Textile Mill , a big factory near the centre of Pyongyang which has 1,600 workers , where the machines were DPRK made and not imported plus extensive recycling and use of waste products was being carried out. 
  We also visited the Party Foundation Monument in East Pyongyang which was built under the guidance of comrade KIM JONG IL in 1995 to mark the 50th anniversary of the Workers’ Party of Korea .  People who want to read more can find reports by myself and James Taylor on the internet.
 My visits to the DPRK this year reaffirmed my faith in the Juche idea  which is deeply associated with the life and work of the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL . Seeing the achievements of People’s Korea made me recall the exploits of comrade KIM JONG IL who worked so hard to defend the independence of the country and to build it up as prosperous self-reliant socialist nation.
GLORY TO THE MEMORY OF THE GREAT LEADER COMRADE
KIM JONG IL
   

KIM JONG IL -mastemind of self-reliant socialism -special article by Dr Dermot Hudson

                                                           

As we approach the 8th anniversary of the demise of the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL  we reflect more and more deeply on his great achievements which were indeed very vast as comrade
KIM JONG IL was truly a master of all trades ; ideology , philosophy, politics , economics , military affairs , literature , art and much more . During my recent visits to People's Korea I have witnessed the DPRK overcoming the imperialist and UN sanctions by upholding the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance under the leadership of respected Marshal KIM JONG UN the great successor to the Chairman KIM JONG IL.
 Self-reliance is very much associated with the leadership and ideas of comrade KIM JONG IL. Back in the 1970s , on the 25th of December 1978  comrade KIM JONG IL made a speech titled "Let Us Increase the Party's Fighting Efficiency and Bring about a Fresh Turn in the Building of Socialism " which put  forward the strategic slogan "Let Us Live our own way !. He said that "It is only when one displays a great revolutionary spirit of self-reliance that one can have faith in one's own strength, exploit the internal resources of one's country to the maximum and conduct the revolution and construction with success. Experience shows that only when one gives full play to the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance can one surmount every manner of difficulty and ordeal.

Even though the anti-Japanese guerrillas received no assistance from a regular army or from a state in the past, they, by displaying to a high degree the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance, overcame manifold difficulties and hardships, defeated the brigandish Japanese imperialists and accomplished the noble cause of national liberation. In the period after the Korean War our party members and working people rehabilitated the devastated economy by our efforts and transformed our country into a powerful socialist industrial state in a short span of time.

The situation we are in today demands that we display to a high degree the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance. At present no country is willing to help another nor is any country in a position to help another, even should she want to".
   This eloquently shows that self-reliance is both an absolute necessity and at the same time the most correct way to build socialism . It also demonstrates the deep and unswerving commitment of comrade KIM JONG IL to self reliance .
  In the 1990s the DPRK faced a very difficult situation when the world socialist market disappeared owing to the frustration of socialism in the USSR and elsewhere , moreover at the same time  the imperialists tightened their sanctions and blockades against the DPRK  and worse still the DPRK was hit by repeated natural disasters which wiped out huge amounts of crops . Some wanted the DPRK to become an aid dependency of imperialism or to "reform' and "open up" but instead Chairman KIM JONG IL , the successor to the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG who had passed away in 1994, raised high the banner of self-reliance . Comrade KIM JONG IL said in 1994 that "Leading economic officials in every sector and at every unit should,based on a clear understanding of the Party’s intention, fulfil the economic tasks assigned to them by displaying the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance and fortitude" and that " We should, by holding higher the banner of the Juche idea, adhere  to the principle of independence, and at all times live our own way."
 This was a decisive rebuff to anyone who urged Juche Korea to abandon its principles and discard self -reliance . The DPRK under the leadership of comrade KIM JONG IL carried out huge construction projects such as the Anbyon Power station all by itself without any outside help. Comrade KIM JONG IL rallied the people to carry out socialist construction in the spirit of self-reliance . The DPRK press carried an number of articles urging greater self-reliance and rejecting 'reform' and 'opening up' . A national meeting of pace-setters in self-reliance was held in 1998 .
  I remember visiting Mt Myohyang in 1996 and going for a walk with my guides by a river and coming across  the words written in Korean characters ' by our own efforts ' chiseled into the side of a pathway .
    Comrade KIM JONG IL went to Jagang province in the far northern part of the DPRK , there he kindled the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance saying that " the people of Jagang province are giving full play to the spirit of self-reliance and fortitude , they are strong-willed and never seem to get pessimistic ". Comrade KIM JONG IL also visited the Chollima Steel Complex , the birthplace of the Chollima movement ( Chollima was a legendary flying horse of Korea which could cover a big distance in one day so the name was given to the mass innovation movement of workers in the DPRK) and other key industrial complexes and factories.
                             
Comrade KIM JONG IL  made sure that the production of Juche fibre(Vinalon) , Juche fertiliser and Juche steel were stepped up. He attended the rally for the re-opening of the February 8th Vinalon Complex in 2010 and gave on-the-spot guidance to the complex several times.
   Today the self-reliant People's Korea is the legacy of the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL and the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance is carried forward by dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN,

genuine Human Rights for People from naenara.kp

http://www.naenara.com.kp/

December 10 is World Human Rights Day.

On this occasion, the Korean people are filled with great pride and self-confidence in leading a life under the socialist system which reflects most correctly their demands for human rights and fully translates them into reality.

The DPRK, which gives top and absolute priority to the people’s interests and regards it as the mode of its existence to make selfless, devoted efforts for the good of the people, formulates and implements all its lines and policies on the principle of fully ensuring their right to independence. It has established such advantageous socialist human rights system as the law codifying human rights as the people’s right to independence, the well-organized State machinery for thoroughly realizing their right to independence and the advanced educational and publicity structure for raising their awareness of human rights.

The Korean people substantially exercise all the rights as social beings, including political freedom and rights and the rights to work, rest, learn and promote their health.

The election of deputies to the 14th Supreme People’s Assembly of the DPRK was held on March 10, Juche 108 (2019). 99.99 percent of all the electors registered on the voter rolls across the country attended the election and 100 percent of them cast their ballots for the candidates for the deputies. Among 687 persons elected to the SPA are workers, cooperative farmers and service personnel that account for 16.2%, 9.6% and 17.2% respectively. Ninety-two percent of them are holders of academic degrees and titles, including professors and doctors, and other technical and expert qualifications. This clearly shows that workers, teachers, researchers and other people are fully exercising their rights to freely take part in the State administration.

The country enforces the system of free education, including the universal 12-year compulsory education involving one-year pre-school education. The right to education in the DPRK is ensured on the most advanced level worldwide. All the people enjoy the benefits of free medical care. The State builds dwelling houses and distributes them free to the people. Workers, teachers, researchers and other working people lead a happy life in modern houses, including those in Ryomyong Street and Mirae Scientists Street. Such fact can be found only in the DPRK.

The third-stage renovation of Samjiyon County and other construction projects, including the Wonsan-Kalma Tourist Resort, are now in full swing in the country. All of them are geared to providing its people with better material and cultured life.

Genuine human rights can never be realized of their own accord. Many people across the world fail to exercise elementary human rights but fall victim to violations and oppression of human rights. Worse still, human rights are being misused by reactionary forces for realizing their ulterior purpose to intervene in the internal affairs of sovereign states and invade them, and infringe human rights of peoples in other countries.

Human rights are the right to independence people should exercise in the political, economic, ideological, cultural and all other sectors of social life. Genuine human rights can be realized and guaranteed by the political and social system of an independent state.

The DPRK will steadily expand the scope of its people-oriented policies to ensure human rights in the future, too.

The Korean people will make a greater stride in exercising their genuine human rights along with the dynamic drive to promote the building of a powerful socialist country.

Self-Reliance Is Invariable Path for Country's Development: Rodong Sinmun


Pyongyang, December 10 (KCNA) -- The records of the revolutionary activities conducted by Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un in 2019 are shining with his energetic guidance instilling into the minds of the Korean people the idea that self-reliance serves as an eternal lifeline and invariable path of the Korean revolution, says Rodong Sinmun Tuesday in an article.

Self-reliance and self-supporting national economy are the foundation of the existence of Korean-style socialism, the engine for its progress and development and the eternal lifeline of the Korean revolution, the article points out, and goes on:

No matter what path others may take and what mode of development they may opt for, we have no other way or mode of development but to ceaselessly strengthen the might of the self-supporting national economy provided by President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il and depend on it in our drive for building a powerful socialist nation.

Self-reliance is the best way to firmly defend the independent dignity of our state and people's life and bring about a shortcut to its prosperity by making greater leaps forward more rapidly.

The ideas and theories of the Supreme Leader have become an engine for the Korean people to unflinchingly advance along the only road of self-reliance.

They include the idea of prioritizing self-reliance as a vital demand of development, the idea of opening up the period of a decisive turn in the drive for socialist construction leaping forward with self-reliance by making uninterrupted innovation, progress and offensive in the revolutionary spirit and working manner of self-reliance and the idea of making efforts for increasing creativity and development capacity to the effect that no obstacle and challenge can ever check or disturb our advance. -0-

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 British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification (BSCPRKP)  issued a joint statement supporting the statement issued by
Kim Yong Chol, chairman of the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee(KAPPC) of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea:
 Despite the warning given by the DPRK on the 5th of December , in the statement of 1st vice Foreign Minister  Choe Son Hui,  Trump the US president has persisted in the use of provocative language even going to say that the DPRK has everything to lose if takes certain actions. This statement is a profound insult by the US president to the supreme leadership of the DPRK , to the system of the DPRK and to the people of the DPRK . How can the DPRK lose everything  when the US has imposed sanctions on it  . Indeed the DPRK has nothing to gain from the US, it can live well and prosper without the US !.
  Comrade Kim Yong Chol  rightly says that "We have nothing more to lose.Though the U.S. may take away anything more from us, it can never remove the strong sense of self-respect, might and resentment against the U.S. from us". This is very true indeed.
 Time is running out for the US .
 We support the due warning of the chairman of the KAPPC of the DPRK.

Vice-Chairman of WPK Central Committee Issues Statement

Pyongyang, December 9 (KCNA) -- Ri Su Yong, vice-chairman of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, issued the following statement on Monday:

It seems that Trump is very anxious to know what we are thinking of now. And he feels very fretful about what will be done by us.

The recent words and expressions spouted one after another by Trump sound like a threat to someone at a glance but they are a corroboration that he feels fear inside.

Trump might be in great jitters but he had better accept the status quo that as he sowed, so he should reap, and think twice if he does not want to see bigger catastrophic consequences.

Our final judgment and decision which will soon be made at the end of this year are to be done by the Chairman of the State Affairs Commission, and he has neither clarified any stand yet nor made any ironic and irritating expressions toward the other party as done by someone.

Trump would be well advised to quit abusive language which may further offend the Chairman. -0

Chairman of Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee Issues Statement

Pyongyang, December 9 (KCNA) -- Kim Yong Chol, chairman of the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee, issued the following statement on Dec. 9:

The U.S. president continues using inappropriate and highly risky words and expressions even after our Dec. 5 warning.

On Dec. 5 we made clear our stand that we would keep watching the U.S. president whether he repeats irritating expressions stoking the atmosphere of confrontation or not, and that we would view the issue from a different angle in case he deliberately uses odd words and expressions against us again.

As well known to the world, at a press interview and in an article he posted on December 7 and 8, Trump let out loads of words and expressions with implicit threat to someone without any calculation that he doesn't think north Korea wants to interfere in the U.S. election but will keep watching it, he will be surprised if north Korea takes hostile action and it will lose everything if it does so.

Such language is, indeed, disappointing.

This naturally indicates that Trump is an old man bereft of patience.

From those words and expressions we can read how irritated he is now.

As he is such a heedless and erratic old man, the time when we can not but call him a "dotard" again may come.

We make clear once again that the Chairman of our State Affairs Commission has not used any irritating expression towards the U.S. president as yet.

Of course it could be a sign of self-restraint but there has not been any yet.

But if thing continues to go this way, our Chairman's understanding of Trump may change, I think.

If Trump's acts and words were meant to be addressed toward us, he must understand that his own style bluffing and hypocrisy sound rather abnormal and unrealistic to us and that every word made by him is heard with derision.

After receiving his erratic utterances, we have no intention to reconsider what we should do in the future, and will not feel worried about our future action.

Trump has too many things that he does not know about the DPRK.

We have nothing more to lose.

Though the U.S. may take away anything more from us, it can never remove the strong sense of self-respect, might and resentment against the U.S. from us.

Trump said that if we undertake an action, he would be surprised, and of course he will be astonished.

Our action is for his surprise. So, if he does not get astonished, we will be irritated.

This year is closing.

If the U.S. has will and wisdom to stop the second-hand of clash, it would be a better option for it to spend time to calculate in anguish for it rather than choosing bluffing and threatening expressions as now.

Stalling for time is not a ready-made solution.

If the U.S. has no will and wisdom, it can not but watch with anxiety the reality in which the threat to its security increases with the passage of time. -0-

Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un Attends Ceremony for Completion of Hot Spring Cultural Recreation Center







Pyongyang, December 8 (KCNA) -- A ceremony for the completion of the Yangdok Hot Spring Cultural Recreation Center took place with splendor.

Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and supreme commander of the armed forces of the DPRK, attended the ceremony.

The hot spring resort is a combined hot spring therapy facility and multi-functional sports and cultural complex conducive to promotion of the people's health and their leisure activities. It is another gift presented by the Workers' Party of Korea to the people.

Service personnel of the People's Army and other builders completed the city-like resort at a high level to be representative of the nation's hot spring culture in less than a year.

When Supreme Leader of the Party, state and armed forces Kim Jong Un arrived at the venue of the ceremony, thunderous cheers of "hurrah!" reverberated through the mountain ranges of Yangdok.

Among the participants in the ceremony were Choe Ryong Hae, member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the WPK, first vice-chairman of the SAC of the DPRK and president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly, and Pak Pong Ju, member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the WPK, vice-chairman of the SAC of the DPRK and vice-chairman of the Central Committee of the WPK.

Also present there were Kim Yong Nam, Yang Hyong Sop, Choe Yong Rim, Kim Ki Nam and Choe Thae Bok, veteran cadres who worked for a long time at the important posts of the Party and the government.

Present there were Pak Kwang Ho, Ri Su Yong, Pak Thae Dok, Pak Thae Song and Kim Yong Chol, vice-chairmen of the WPK Central Committee, Kim Tu Il, chairman of the South Phyongan Provincial Committee of the WPK, officials of the WPK Central Committee, officials concerned, builders, employees of the resort management office, officials, working people and children in the province including those of Yangdok County.

Also seen among the participants were Army General Pak Jong Chon, chief of the General Staff of the Korean People's Army, and other commanding officers of the KPA and soldier builders.

Choe Ryong Hae made a speech.

He said it is a significant event giving great pleasure to the people throughout the country and heralding the successful conclusion of this year's drive that a hot spring resort of peculiar features has been built in Yangdok area, as intended by the Party.

Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un initiated the project of building a resort where visitors can have hot spring bath and enjoy skiing and horse-riding, which no one had ever thought of, and energetically led the whole course of construction so that it was built at the best quality level, the speaker said.

He noted that the successful completion of the resort is a clear manifestation of the might of the single-minded unity of Juche Korea breaking through any harsh challenges by dint of the strong unity of the leader and the people, and a great victory of the line of self-reliance which once again declared to the world that steady development and prosperity can be achieved even in the worst adversity.

Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un cut a ribbon of completion.

He looked round the Yangdok Hot Spring Cultural Recreation Center.

Feasting his eyes on the resort, he said that now it has become possible to bring into a reality the desire of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il who were always considerate of turning the Yangdok area famous for hot spring into a cultural recreation center and providing it to the people.

He hardly repressed his happiness, saying that it has become possible to provide people with new culture, and one more plan of the Party to make our people enjoy high civilization under socialism as early as possible has come true.

He specified detailed issues for providing visitors with better service, looking at the working people having a hot spring bath in the indoor hot-spring hall.

Next, he went to the skiing service complex. In front of a paraphernalia service counter, he examined skiing paraphernalia, saying that people will be greatly happy as they can enjoy skiing service together with hot spring treatment.

He went up to the top of the skiing ground by a cable car and had a bright and contented smile all over his face, looking at the young people skiing down the slopes.

Then he went to the horse-riding park and a vaulting-horse ground where he saw young boys and girls enjoying horse-riding. He had a photo taken with them.

Our Party is the guide leading our people to the modern civilization, the Supreme Leader said, adding that the completion of the Yangdok Hot Spring Cultural Recreation Center is a bright fruition that can be made only by the WPK which goes through all challenges by dint of the most correct leadership.

It is a very happy event to provide the new hot spring culture, hot spring civilization to the people but it is further pleasing to find that soldiers of the People's Army created such civilization with their own hands, he noted. Calling it a miracle and perfect edifice that can be created only by the People's Army that carries out the orders given by the leader with all devotion in the spirit of strong gust of wind, and praising the People's Army for doing one more worthwhile thing for the people, he expressed great satisfaction and bestowed great solicitude, which will be conveyed generation after generation, on the soldier builders.

The People's Army has honored its obligation as creators of the people's happiness and pioneers of high civilization, he said, emphasizing that it is the great trust of the party put in them to call them to such a huge creation ground, the zone for a worthwhile work of creating people's happiness, and it has to rise like a mountain, responding to the Party's call with a loud answer of "Yes" in the future, too. -0-

KCNA Report on Completion of Yangdok Hot Spring Cultural Recreation Center

Pyongyang, December 8 (KCNA) -- Thanks to the steadfast idea of the Workers' Party of Korea of believing in the people as in Heaven and its energetic leadership, the remote mountainous area in Yangdok, which remained intact for thousands of years, has turned into a splendid hot spring cultural recreation center.

Soldiers of the People's Army and other builders worked a construction miracle by showily building a comprehensive hot spring cure center, multi-functional sports and cultural complex conducive to promoting the civilized life and health of the people in a matter of less than one year.

The modern service facilities, single- and multi-storied dwelling houses, a skiing ground, a horse-riding park, etc. perfect in terms of formative art, reciprocity, connectivity and practicality are organized nature-and environment-friendly. Therefore, the Yangdok Hot Spring Cultural Recreation Center has become the icon of the Korean-style architecture and construction to which the Juche-oriented idea of architectural beauty with the people-first principle, Korean nation-first principle as a core is thoroughly applied.

The Korean Central News Agency Saturday released a report stating that the Yangdok Hot Spring Cultural Recreation Center is a proud creation of the new times, which was built by the noble love of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un for the people and his energetic leadership.

The report said that Kim Jong Un, with a plan to let the people fully enjoy cultural and leisure activities having hot spring bath and doing skiing and riding, devoted himself to developing the hot spring resort, scrutinizing a distribution chart of hot springs across the country.

He visited hot spring area in Yangdok County in August and October, Juche 107 (2018) and chose the area of Onjong-ri as the right and the best place for hot spring recreation. Then he unfolded a grandiose blueprint for successfully building a wonderful and comprehensive resort conducive to the promotion of the people's health and their leisure activities.

He gave instructions to push forward the resort development project at a high level to be a national example and representative of the hot spring culture of the country. He also clearly indicated correct directions and ways for completing the project in the shortest time and took measures to provide strong building forces and materials.

Thanks to the great trust in the People's Army placed by the Supreme Leader who said that the project would be hastened as planned and intended by the Party when the People's Army undertakes it, the People's Army became the main force for the project.

During his visit to the resort under construction in April, he said that the people would like it if a skiing ground was built nearby, and saw to it that all the problems in building the skiing ground were solved.

The field-guidance given by him in August, October and November brought about a gigantic creation and change, further stirring the construction site of creating a new culture for the people.

Kim Jong Un guided up to 2 000 layouts of the resort to make sure that it is built into an icon and standard of modern architecture, in which Juche character, national character and originality are in perfect harmony.

His outstanding leadership was the driving force for victory.

The report dealt with the feats of service personnel and the people of South Phyongan and Kangwon Provinces, noting that they launched the building project in Yangdok in Nov. 2018.

It also elaborated on the efforts made by the railway workers to build a railway section leading up to the resort, the fact that youth shock brigade members gave full play to their mettle and courage in the building of a new railway station and that the People's Army, ministries and national institutions upgraded local industrial establishments so as to contribute to strengthening the material and economic foundations of Yangdok County.

The report stressed that the miraculous victory that crowned this year's struggle left in history the iron truth that the people-first principle maintained by the WPK and its great idea of self-prosperity and its powerful guidance will always bring victories despite whatever severe storms and that socialist Korea will be prosperous forever as all the people staunchly advance, rallied behind the leader in single mind. -0-

                        London 7th of December Juche 108(2019)
The ASSPUK , Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE)  and the  UK Korean Friendship Association (UK KFA ) a  issued the following statement on the 6th anniversary of the liquidation of the anti-party, counter-revolutionary factional clique in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea(DPRK);
   On the 8th of December it will be five years since the modern day factionalist clique of the anti-party traitor were defeated and liquidated. The DPRK, under the leadership of dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN  defeated an attempt by modern day factionalists to ovethrow the state and socialist system of the DPRK. The anti-party counter-revolutionary factionalists were ideologically aligned to US imperialism and world imperialism (also to international revisionism and big power chauvinism ) . The factionalists  would have turned the DPRK into a colony of imperialism . As dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN  said
"The identity of the modern version of factionalist group is that it was an ideologically degenerate entity which was outwardly overcome with fear for the pressure by the imperialists and inwardly contaminated with bourgeois ideology and culture."

The action that the DPRK took was entirely just and correct  as the most dangerous enemy a country can face is the enemy within . One enemy inside is equal to a hundred outside.
The DPRK is on the road of final victory  as Marshal KIM JONG UN said
" Historically speaking, great victory was won in the Fatherland Liberation War after the purge of an anti-Party, counterrevolutionary factionalist clique following the Fifth Plenary Meeting of the Party Central Committee; the Chollima upswing was brought about in the course of eliminating the August 1956 factionalist group; and world-startling successes were achieved in the showdown with the United States and the socialist industrialization drive after the anti-Party revisionists were exposed and purged at the 15th Plenary Meeting of the Fourth Party Central Committee."

Now under the leadership of dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN the DPRK is stepping up anti-imperialist class education .  The DPRK will be ever-victorious under the leadership of dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN !
   The DPRK is now stepping up education in the revolutionary traditions of Mt Paektu and holding high the banner of self-reliance.
The 6  year since the defeat of the modern factionalist clique have been years of advance and growth which has seen the rapid economic growth of the DPRK and the emergence of People's Korea  as a proud independent  power of Juche. At present open and hidden enemies of People's Korea are increasing their efforts to destroy the Juche-based socialist sytem of the country but we have every confidence that the DPRK led by dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN will smash them !

In demand of abolition of GSOMIA



The south Korean people have held rallies to denounce the south Korean authorities for renewing the general security of military intelligence agreement (GSOMIA).
 The south Korean authorities have disturbed peace, the desire of people, by offering military information to Japan. After all they succumbed to Japan, the US and Hwang, the head of LKP, the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions criticized through the statement issued on Nov. 22.
                                    
                 
The government’s decision on the renewal of GSOMIA accelerates vigorous struggle of the people. Unless the south Korean authorities exercise its sovereignty, the workers and people would launch the struggle, the statement stressed.
It said that the KCTU will carry on struggle continuously with the people, condemning the Moon government following the policy of world hegemony pursued by Abe and Trump.
On the same day, the KCTU and the Solidarity for Progress held candlelight rallies to denounce the decision to extend GSOMIA which is the shameful one without taking consideration of the public sentiment.
The students’ organizations including the Progressive Federation of Students of South Korea had rallies to impeach the decision of the authorities.

Ridiculous hunger strike


Ridiculous hunger strike

Hwang Gyo-ahn, the representative of Liberty Korea Party, fasted in demand of abolition of GSOMIA and reform of election system but the public sentiment turned their cold back to him.
The result of public opinion with Hwang’s fast comes out negative result that almost 70 percent people don’t sympathize with it. Due to this the approval rate of the LKP falls down than before.
The ruling Democratic Party and other opposition parties are denouncing his fast as stubbornness of a political novice and a hunger strike to avert crisis and press him to come to the negotiation table for amendment of law.
  
Civic organizations condemned Hwang as traitor who sells out the fellow countrymen and pro-Japanese betrayer near his fasting place through the conference and rallies.
The LKP included pregnant woman in the hunger strike, is it to be called the hunger strike with supply of nutrient? Hwang knows nothing but only tonsure and hunger strike, Internet homepages and mass media ironically described.
The members of LKP blamed that it’s shameful for the representative of the opposition party persists in the hunger strike, the mode of the weak, it isn’t helpful to the party, he is weak and incompetent representative.
It’s quite natural that hunger strike of Hwang lost public favor and the face of the LKP.

That Fateful Day in December -special article in memory of the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL by Dr Dermot Hudson

                                                           


It was about 5.30 am on a cold and bleak winter morning on Monday 19th of December 2011. It was pitch black outside . I woke up to find a text message from a supporter of our Juche Idea Study Group of England , which read , as I remember , ‘very sad loss, condolences to all “ . I was very tired hardly awake . I was puzzled by the message , who could it refer to . 

   So I turned on the Radio and heard the news that the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL had suddenly passed away .17 years before in July 1994 I heard the news of the demise of the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG starkly announced on BBC Radio Four.
    I found it hard to believe that comrade KIM JONG IL who had been seen giving on the spot guidance to the Kwangbok supermarket  a few days before could have passed away so suddenly , it did not seem possible . I turned my computer on and checked with KFA comrades and also went onto the KCNA website . The news was true .It added to the bleak and empty nature of that day.
  Comrade KIM JONG IL had passed away suddenly on train whilst giving on the spot guidance to key economic sectors, The train is preserved and kept today in the Kumsusan palace of the Sun in Pyongyang , His desk is exactly as he had left it on the fateful day he passed away, giving the impression that he had just gone for a rest and was coming back .
  The Korean nation went into deep mourning . Juche idea followers and friends of People’s Korea sent messages of condolence . I myself  went and visited the DPRK Embassy in Acton Town , in west London . I placed flowers in front of the portrait and bowed . 
  I reflected on the great exploits of Chairman KIM JONG IL . comrade KIM JONG IL  defended and developed the purity of the Juche Idea . He systematised and enriched the Juche idea in his historic 1982 thesis "On the Juche Idea ". This work constitutes an almanac of the Juche idea which clarified its philosophical essence and that man has independence, consciousness and creativity. Thus the Juche idea shines out a philosophy for achieving the independence of the popular masses . The Juche idea is a powerful weapon for achieving human emancipation from all kinds of misery and oppression.
When socialism was frustrated in some countries owing to the treachery of modern revisionism the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL energetically defended socialism and wrote brilliant works such as "Our Socialism Centred on the Popular Masses Shall Not Perish , "Abuses of Socialism are Intolerable" "Socialism Is A Science , " Giving Priority to Ideological work is essential for accomplishing socialism" and many others  provided a source of hope for the people aspiring to socialism.

   The great leader comrade KIM JONG Il developed in depth the Songun idea an embodiment of the Juche Idea and treasured sword for defending socialist Korea . The Songun Idea and Songun politics are the cutting edge of the anti-imperialist class struggle in this era. The great leader comrade KIM JONG IL fully administered  Songun politics as supreme commander of the Korean People's Army comrade KIM JONG IL led the work of defence up-building and continued the cause of Juche-army building pioneered by the great leader President KIM IL SUNG. Stressing the importance of the anti-imperialist military front led the DPRK to victory in the DPRK-US confrontation smiting the reactionary US imperialists by carrying out 2 nuclear tests so that the DPRK became a global nuclear power , a proud independent socialist nuclear power of Juche. Thanks to this legacy bequeathed by comrade KIM JONG Il the DPRK can sit  down and negotiate with the USA as an equal partner.
  Chairman KIM JONG IL was loved by the people but hated by the imperialists because he did not bend down to them and because he did not betray socialism .
   Under the leadership of dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN the successor to the Juche revolutionary cause  the Korean people turned . sorrow into strength . Marshal KIM JONG UN has defended and carried forward the great ideas of comrade KIM JONG IL and built a prosperous socialist country under the banner of self-reliance . The ideas of chairman KIM JONG IL burn ever bright in People’s Korea !

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 British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification (BSCPRKP)  issued a joint statement in support of the statement made by the 1st Vice Foreign Minister of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea(DPRK), Ms Choe Son Hui :
  Recently US president Trump not only threatened People's Korea with military action but also slandered and insulted the supreme leadership of the DPRK . Such a thing is intolerable and outrageous . It shows that Trump is going back to the rhetoric of 2017 which tensions between the DPRK and US were very high , so high that in fact many people assumed war would break out sooner or later . Trump's remarks will only serve to inflame the situation and bring about the complete and final collapse of DPRK-US talks. It is a fact that not only has the DPRK implemented fully its side of the DPRK-US agreement but it also show a lot of restraint and perseverance but now Trump has trampled on this completely.
  As Ms Choe Son Hui rightly states "If, if such phrases emerge once again and they are once again confirmed to be a calculated provocation of the U.S. against us, we will also start harsh words against the U.S. to counter it.

If any words and expressions stoking the atmosphere of confrontation are used once again on purpose at this crucial moment, it must really be diagnosed as the relapse of the dotage of a dotard."
  We totally agree with what the 1st Vice Foreign Minister says and uphold her words . The DPRK will be right to counter the slanders of the US with words of their own choice , we support this .
  The DPRK worked for peace but at the same time had no illusions about the US or Trump. The aggressive nature of US imperialism has never changed nor has the hostile policy of the US towards the DPRK.
We support the just stand of the DPRK as expressed by 1st vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui.
 DEFEND PEOPLE'S KOREA !

First Vice-Foreign Minister of DPRK Choe Son Hui Makes Statement

Pyongyang, December 5 (KCNA) -- Choe Son Hui, first vice-minister of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK released the following statement Thursday:

The phrase "use of military force" against the DPRK which emerged during the NATO summit a few days ago has created a great splash worldwide, arousing concerns.

What makes us feel further worse is that the figurative style was dare used at random with no courtesy when referring to the supreme leadership of dignity of the DPRK.

This has prompted the waves of hatred of our people against the U.S. and the Americans and they are getting higher and higher.

As reported, the Korean People's Army immediately clarified its strong stand on it.

We, Foreign Ministry, too, can not repress displeasure over the utterances made by President Trump inappropriately at the most sensitive time.

It would be fortunate if the utterances of the use of military force and the title of figurative style made by President Trump were a careless verbal lapse, but matter becomes different if they were a planned provocation that deliberately targeted us.

If this is meant to make expressions, reminiscent of those days just two years ago when a war of words was fought across the ocean, surface again on purpose, it will be a very dangerous challenge.

We will watch whether the phrase i.e. use of military force and title of figurative style emerge again.

If, if such phrases emerge once again and they are once again confirmed to be a calculated provocation of the U.S. against us, we will also start harsh language against the U.S. to counter it.

If any language and expressions stoking the atmosphere of confrontation are used once again on purpose at a crucial moment as now, that must really be diagnosed as the relapse of the dotage of a dotard.

The Chairman of our State Affairs Commission has not yet made any statement toward President Trump. -0
