KCNA Commentary Censures Japanese Reactionaries for Distorting History

Pyongyang, July 1 (KCNA) -- Shortly ago, Japan opened to the public the industrial heritage information center in Tokyo where data denying the forced labor of Koreans in the Hashima coal mine is exhibited.

The Japanese reactionaries have long tried to register forced labor sites for exploiting Koreans including the Hashima Island as UNESCO's world cultural heritage. But they faced strong opposition at home and abroad and were compelled to admit the forced labor of Koreans in July, 2015 and commit themselves before the international community to taking a proper step to keep the memory of the victims and establishing an information center telling the whole history.

At that time the UNESCO's World Heritage Committee, considering Japan's such attitude, adopted a decision on advising Japan to make public the history about the forced labor of Koreans in every site.

However, just after attaining their purpose, the Japanese reactionaries openly exhibited fabrications denying the forced labor of Koreans, far from the above-said commitment and decision.

This is another unpardonable mockery of the Korean nation and the international community and unethical crime as it is an impudent distortion of history.

As far as the Hashima coal mine is concerned, it had been called by even Japanese a hell from the outset of its development owing to its poor living and labor conditions.

The Japanese imperialists brought some 1 000 Korean people to the island without source of edible water and forced them into painful slave labor of more than 12~14 hours every day. The Koreans were the targets of all sorts of national discrimination and maltreatment.

The testimonies by a Korean who had a narrow escape from the island of death and the Japanese who lived on its neighboring islands and a book written by Eidai Hayashi, a Japanese writer, go to clearly prove the crimes of the militarist murderers who maltreated and massacred Koreans brutally on the Hashima Island.

This being a hard fact, the Japanese reactionaries are spreading false information, describing it as "testimonies" by islanders, terming such act the one following the resolution and advice from the UNESCO's World Heritage Committee. This is, indeed, an unpardonable provocation to the mankind calling upon the island nation to sincerely atone for its crime-woven past.

The Japanese authorities are desperately resorting to distortion of history while labeling the proper understanding of the criminal history of the Japanese archipelago as "self-tormenting outlook on history".

Their purpose is to evade their responsibility for atoning for the unethical crimes at any cost and to keep the Japanese people in ignorance, so as to use them as a shock brigade for overseas invasion again.

This is, indeed, outrageous.

The more desperately the Japanese politicians try to deny their past history and revive militarism, the bitterer denunciation and hatred of the international community they will meet, and this will cast a shadow on the future of the archipelago state.

In the final analysis, they are rejecting "self-tormenting outlook on history" to write another history of their self-ruin.

The Abe regime would be well advised to stop the useless act, though belatedly, and sincerely reflect on the past crimes and make due reparation for them as it is legally and morally obliged to do so. -0-

He was a tireless fighter who battled against imperialism all his life, leading the Korean people first against the rapacious Japanese imperialists, then against the barbaric US imperialists . President KIM IL SUNG waged a 15 year long  armed struggle against the Japanese imperialists becoming a legendary general distinguished by his adroit guerrilla tactics.He gave the Korean people independence and liberation ,something that is so precious it cannot be bartered for billions of tons of gold bullion.
   President KIM IL SUNG was the ever-victorious iron-willed brilliant commander and gifted military strategist who defeated the US imperialist aggressors who had tried to crush People's Korea when it was in its cradle .Thus again he defended the independence of the people.
    Under the leadership of  the great leader President KIM IL SUNG ,two stages of revolution were carried out : the anti-imperialist,anti-feudal democratic revolution and the socialist revolution.He founded the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) , an unique socialist state of Juche centred on the popular masses ,a peoples paradise.The DPRK has proved to be a most durable ,stable and harmonious socialist state.
                                   
                                       

    The great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG ensured that Rightist and Leftist deviations were avoided in the construction of socialism. Moreover socialism in Korea was not a copy of another country but Korean-style socialism, an independent Juche socialism. The DPRK upheld socialist principles when others introduced capitalist-style methods.
   Independence, independence and independence was the creed of the great leader President KIM IL SUNG . He authored the Juche Idea which lights the road of independence for the popular masses and teaches us that man is the master of everything .The Juche idea captivated the anti-imperialists and revolutionaries throughout the world .Thousands of seminars on the Juche idea have been held all over the world.
    The Songun idea initiated by the great leader generalissimo KIM IL SUNG  in  the fiery days of the anti-Japanese armed struggle  is based on the concept that independence is achieved by arms and the victorious revolution is defended by arms .The Songun idea , which has been implemented by the worthy successors of the great leader generalissimo KIM IL SUNG, eternal general secretary KIM JONG IL and dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN , is the treasured sword that defends the independence and dignity of People's Korea the bastion of world socialism.

The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK), the British Group for the Study of the Juche Idea (BGSJI) , the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA) and the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification on the Korean Peninsula (BSCPRKP) issued the following joint statement on the occasion of the 48th  anniversary of the historic July 4th north-south joint statement.
  The July 4th joint statement stands out as a great landmark in the history of the struggle for the reunification of Korea.It was this statement that established the  three basic fundamental principles of national reunification, that became the three charters of national reunification namely independence, peace and great national unity. It was signed thanks to the persevering efforts of the great leader President  KIM IL SUNG who made reunification the central task.
    The 4th of July joint statement was a creative application of the great Juche idea to the question of the reunification as laid down the principle that reunification should be achieved by the efforts of the Korean people without interference from outsiders. Thus the Juche-orientated thought of the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG was fully  realised by  the 4th July statement.  The 4th of July statement fully reflected the will and aspirations of the Korean people to reunify Korea independently . It set out a most realistic policy to peacefully reunify Korea.
The hopes of the entire Korean people north and south for reunification which rose higher because of the 4th of July statement were torn asunder by the fascist puppet regime of Park Chung Hee.n.
 Despite several round of inter-Korean summits in 2018  inter-Korean  relations remain tense because the south Korean side has not implemented its side of the agreements and because  of US interference . We believe that Korea should be reunified on the basis of independence and peace according to the principles laid down in the July 4th joint statement.
KOREA IS ONE!

Extreme Misanthropy and Racism - Evil Practices in U.S. Society

Pyongyang, July 1 (KCNA) -- Amid the continued anti-racism protests, white policemen's murder of black people broke out one after another in the U.S., enraging the public.

27-year old black man was shot dead by a policeman in Atlanta, Georgia and corpses of black men were found in succession near Los Angeles, California, greatly shocking the public. There is a suspicion that the method of committing crimes is similar to the one used by Ku Klux Klan, the organization advocating white supremacy, against black people in the past.

On the other hand, white men are even ridiculing and insulting the protestors in public.

This clearly shows deep-rooted misanthropy against black people which is rampant in the U.S. society.

In the U.S. the black people are regarded as "inferior race" and becoming the targets of contempt, rejection and oppression for the only reason that they have different skin color.

There are many ultra-right misanthropic organizations in the U.S. and among them Ku Klux Klan is ill-famed at home and abroad for inciting extreme white supremacy and indiscriminate slaughter.

What matters is that the law and the social system of the U.S. are encouraging such organizations' racist crimes and human rights abuses, far from suppressing them.

Under the patronage of the U.S. legal system based on so-called "impartiality" and "justice", white policemen's firing at black people has become an almost daily occurrence and 99 percent of the police killers have gone scot-free.

One third of all prisoners in the U.S. are black men while the black people only account for an eighth of the total population.

All the facts prove that all kinds of racist crimes including murders of black people committed in the U.S. one after another are the inevitable product of its reactionary and unpopular social system.

Many experts and media across the world, international bodies and even those in the U.S. are laying bare and scathingly censuring such filthy situation of the "exemplary human rights-loving state" where serious human rights abuses are committed institutionally.

CNN said that George Floyd in Minnesota is only one person among lots of Americans killed by policemen. Noting that the number of the people killed by the police every year is not clear, but it is really shocking to see only estimated data, CNN added that the data not only show the explicit and serious situation of the U.S. but also the reason why the protestors have long called for the reform of police and judicature.

Against this backdrop, the issue of institutional racism and human rights abuses rampant in the U.S. was discussed as an urgent agenda item and a protest resolution adopted at a recent meeting of the UN Human Rights Council.

UN experts on human rights issued a joint statement to censure the recent violent suppression of the anti-racism protests in the U.S. They stressed that firing tear gas at peaceful protestors and beating them won't help gag them but only reaffirm the urgency of the struggle for police reform and racial justice in the U.S.

Chinese media carried a commentary under the title of "It is the time to unmask the U.S.", which said that the actual human rights performance in the U.S. has been betrayed under the eyes of the 7 billion people of the world. It has been proved that the "human rights diplomacy" of the U.S. served as its lever for interfering in other countries' internal affairs and as its "moral weapon" for attaining its geopolitical and political goals and maintaining its domination, the commentary pointed out.

False propaganda of the U.S. under the slogan of "equality for all" can not work any more.

The U.S. had better mind its poor human rights situation before accusing others. -

From the Korean Committee For Cultural Relations on the 26th anniversary of the passing away of the great leader President Kim Il Sung



the day of July 8th, the 26th anniversary of demise of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung, approaches by every day, with an irresistible yearning for a nation's father we come to recollect with deep emotions the immortal exploits performed during his lifetime.

Looking back to his noble life, we cannot stop admiring him. Indeed, he was the great man of all greats recognized and revered by not only the Korean people, but the whole world.

The chairman of the Swedish Communist Labour Party in 1990s, wrote once about President Kim Il Sung's exploits as follows: "There is a world-famous 'one thousand nights' story, but to turn the President's imprints left in the foreign relations arena into the night stories, even ten thousand nights would not be sufficient."

It would not stand to reason to try to have all episodes from the President's foreign activities on this email, so today we will confine in delivering a story about his noble human love and faithfulness.

You probably still have in memories an incident related to Erich Honecker, taken place upon an absorption unification of GDR by Western Germany. When he was caught in a difficult situation at his age of 80 having just had cardiac surgery, it was only our President Kim Il Sung who didn't forget the treasured friendship with him and organized a special flight to bring him to Korea for his treatment and took necessary measures for an intensive diplomatic offensive to make the world recognize an adequacy of humanitarian aid rendered to him by Korea.

The then member of the Supreme Council of the National United Party of Malaysia commented on this incident as follows: "Respect to the President's fidelity.

When Honecker was in power, every country welcomed him as a state guest, but once was thrown out from the power, he was just dismissed. …

I'm so impressed that your country treasured friendship with him and agreed to receive him and provide treatment."

The US journalist addressed to President his letter:

"Y.E. President, I am so amazed that you took a humanitarian measure for Honecker, who was found in a miserable destiny. Respect for this.

When Honecker was brought back from the power and became no more valid as a politician, all his allies dismissed him, but it was only you, Y.E. President.

Y.E. President,

What makes me so impressed is your noble benevolence shown towards the old friends regardless the outcome of their destiny. This great sense of fidelity is hardly found in our current world."

Indeed, the human love, benevolence and fragrance as a human being, all embodied in our President Kim Il Sung, was so deep and wide to mesmerize even the politicians from the hostile countries.

Thus in 1994 the US ex-president Jimmy Carter, after having met President Kim Il Sung, stated that President Kim Il Sung was greater than George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln, the most illustrious in the founding and development of the US, put together.

And when President Kim Il Sung passed away in July 8th 1994, the French President Francois Mitterrand recalled President Kim Il Sung as the great state marshal, stating that he was the most outstanding great person among all active politicians known from the World War II."

As Those with Strong Spirit of Self-Reliance and Self-Development

From Voice of Korea website http://vok.rep.kp/


All the service personnel and other people of Korea were brought up as those with strong spirit of self-reliance and self-development under the energetic leadership of the respected supreme leader Kim Jong Un.
On July 19, Juche 104(2015) Kim Jong Un visited the Kim Jong Thae Electric Locomotive Complex and gave it a task to make modern underground electric car of Korean style by itself. And he guided its miniature and paid deep concern to the problems arising in its development and production.
It was not easy for the complex to develop and produce a new modern underground electric car of Korean style by itself.
The workers, scientists and technicians of the complex showed in practice the truth that all things are precious and shining all the more when they are made with our own strength and technology and in our own way.
The newly-developed underground electric car made by the workers themselves was so precious that Kim Jong Un saw it time and again, highly appreciating their revolutionary spirit of self-reliance. And he called them the vanguard of self-reliance and self-development.
Creations were made one after another thanks to his devotion and efforts to bring up the workers as those with strong spirit of self-reliance and self-development.

At the Fourth Plenary Meeting of the Seventh Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea held in April Juche 108(2019), Kim Jong Un clarified once again that it is a steadfast political line of the Party to build a powerful socialist country under the banner of self-reliance.
The banner of self-reliance he held higher was the motive force that enabled the Korean people to make the greatest successes in a multiple and consecutive way despite the worst adversity in so short a period.

The Korean people will rely on their own efforts and persevere indomitably under the leadership of Kim Jong Un, opening up the broad avenue of prosperity and bringing earlier a good future

Against Dogmatism and Revisionism -from the Stoke On Trent branch of the British Group for the Study of the Juche Idea

Although I do favour the concept of recycling for environmental reasons, however in the fields of ideology regurgitating the same dogmas can be counter-productive and stultifying. There are those with closed minds and approaches who are hooked to the dogmatic thinking of the 1950s, and dismiss all ideological innovation out of hand. More in the case of the Juche Idea, where just the mention of this thought leads these leftists into a total denial of any possible merit of this ideology. These elements dismiss any viability of the Juche Idea because it has originated on the Asian continent, thus displaying their innate Euro-centrism and chauvinism (whatever Marxist credentials these individuals proclaimed). Another trope or two these critics of Juche bang on about is the "North Korean Personality Cult", "North Korean philosophical idealism" etcetera. A favourite tactic used by those on the Left who want to dismiss any relevance of the Juche Idea is to take various quotations and texts from the historical works of the DPRK leaders out of context and distort their original meaning aswell as using material from both bourgeois academia and the tabloid press so as to allegedly back up their assertions. On many issues and not just Juche, Modern Revisionism, Dogmatism and Ultra-Leftism have alot in common and act as twins in their dispute with anything fresh and revolutionary. Let us have more honest debates and investigations in regard to Juche and its place in the thought of the International Proletariat without any prejudice and distortions.

  90 years ago President KIM IL SUNG addressed a meeting of the leading activists and cadres of the Young Communist League of Korea and the Anti-Imperialist Youth League . In those days the Korean people were looking for a new way to successfully conduct the revolutionary struggle for independence and national liberation as well as the struggle for class liberation . In the past bourgeois nationalists had
tried to conduct the independence movement by relying on big powers and also just among a few top-level leaders . The emergence of the communist movement in Korea had proved to be a false dawn because it became quickly split into rival factions who competed against each other for recognition from the Communist International  and did not conduct revolutionary struggle among the masses . People groaned in despair.
    The young President KIM IL SUNG keenly realised that this was not the way forward . He stressed that the Korean revolution should be carried out independently and by relying on the popular masses.
 In his speech  'The Path of the Korean Revolution  ' he explained his ideas and put forward the Juche -orientated line of the Korean revolution. In the speech he castigated the factionalists and flunkeys
and said that " “The masters of the revolutionary struggle are the masses of the people, and only when they are organized and mobilized can they win the revolutionary struggle.”
   This is the basis of the Juche idea and it can be said that the Juche Idea was first proclaimed to the world  in the speech made at Kalun .
  In the speech President KIM IL SUNG set forth the revolutionary line of armed struggle, original line of the anti-Japanese national united front and Juche-oriented policy of party founding for the first time in the history of the national liberation struggle in colonial countries, and dynamically led the revolution along the road of Juche.
  Since then the Korean revolution has never looked back and never marked time. Thanks to the correct line set down at the Kalun meeting , the line of Juche , the Korean people gained independence and built an independent socialist power of Juche .
  Today People's Korea  is advancing under the banner of the Juche idea  smashing the sanctions of the US-led hostile forces !

KCNA on Truth about Japan's Absurd Story of "Kidnapping"

Pyongyang, June 30 (KCNA) -- The truth behind absurd story of "kidnapping" has been disclosed one after another in Japan.

Shortly ago, the police of Toyama Prefecture of Japan officially admitted that two women, "the possibility of whose kidnapping by north Korea" was thought to be hard to be excluded after they went missing in 1996, were found dead in the country.

The dead bodies of the two women were reportedly discovered in a car which was lifted up from the bottom of the sea off a port in the prefecture in March of this year and their identities were confirmed through DNA examination.

With this, the number of "kidnapping" victims touted by the Japanese reactionaries has decreased and clear examples proving the nonsense and deceitfulness of "kidnapping" have increased.

This being a hard reality, they assert that the number of specified missing persons, whose possibility of having been "kidnapped" by the north can not be excluded, has reached hundreds throughout the country. This is an absurd jargon.

The problem of missing persons, an inevitable product of the reactionary social system of Japan, is clearly an issue pertaining to the country and it has nothing to do with kidnapping even in the light of its conception.

If there is no result after a fixed period of investigation, all the people reported missing are automatically painted as victims of kidnapping in Japan.

This is not just an issue related to the incompetence of police authorities but part of the hostile policy toward the DPRK sought by the Japanese reactionaries who are working hard to draw water to their mill after maximizing and internationalizing the issue of missing Japanese as a political and diplomatic one.

In fact, Japan is neither justified to put up any conditions nor is entitled to raise the issue in the relations with the north.

As shown by the history, Japan is the kingdom of deep-rooted kidnapping.

It is a hideous unethical criminal state as it occupied Korea and abducted, kidnapped and drafted more than 8.4 million young and middle-aged men and 200 000 women to battlefields and construction sites and mercilessly killed at least one million of them in the last century.

Japan tries to present itself as a victim, not an assailant in a bid to evade the past liquidation at any cost and legitimize its hostile policy toward the DPRK through "kidnapping" that has already been solved.

The Japanese reactionaries are seeking to steadily publicize the hackneyed "kidnapping" issue to cover up the reality of unpopular social system troubled with steadily increasing number of suicide and the missing cases and divert the anti-government spirit in the country to abroad and, furthermore, create an atmosphere favorable for realizing its ambition of reinvasion.

This is the essence of "kidnapping" that the Japanese authorities tout as a "core issue pending" and a "top-priority item".

Japan is well advised to stop cunning acts aimed to shirk off its fault onto others. -0-

THE PATH OF THE KOREAN REVOLUTION- KIM IL SUNG



  

Report to the Meeting of Leading Personnel of the Young CommunistLeague and the Anti-Imperialist Youth League Held at KalunJune 30, 1930



 Comrades,

We young communists are now faced with the important task of leading the Korean revolution along the right path to meet the prevailing situation.
The current internal and external situation is very complicated and tense.

Fearing the growing might of the Soviet Union and the ever-increasing revolutionary struggle of the oppressed peoples, the imperialists are frantically manoeuvring to stamp it out. Moreover, finding themselves in the vortex of a worldwide crisis, they are faced with severe political and economic difficulties, and in order to overcome them they are strengthening their aggressive and predatory policy with regard to other countries.

The Japanese imperialists caught up in the worldwide economic crisis at present are trying to find a way out by accelerating war preparations to invade the Asian Continent and, at the same time, by further intensifying the colonial repression and plunder of Korea.

In order to quench the Korean people’s anti-Japanese spirit and crush their desire for independence once and for all, the Japanese imperialists are covering the whole of Korea with military, gendarme, police, intelligence networks, and are enacting various evil laws to arrest, imprison and slaughter Koreans at will. Our fellow countrymen thrown behind prison bars by the Japanese imperialists number tens of thousands.

More than ever before the Japanese imperialist marauders are intensifying economic plunder as well as political repression in Korea.

By seizing Korea’s key industries, the Japanese imperialists are putting a brake on the development of the national industry and are robbing our rich resources including gold, silver, coal and iron ore without restraint. In particular, these aggressors are making desperate efforts to ruthlessly exploit the cheap labour in Korea. As a consequence, the Korean workers are leading a wretched life as wage slaves, as colonial slaves.

The Japanese imperialists are exploiting the countryside even more ruthlessly while maintaining the feudal landownership in Korea. They not only seized vast tracts of land by force, but shipped off as much as seven million sok of rice last year alone, while pursuing a coercive, predatory policy to obtain grain in the name of the “increased rice production plan”. Owing to the cruel expropriation of the Japanese imperialists and feudal landlords, our peasants are barely subsisting on grassroots and tree-bark.

The Korean nation is facing a question of life or death today—it either perishes for ever under the colonial yoke of the Japanese imperialists or rises up in a fight to survive. If it merely laments over its ruined land and tolerates the unheard-of Japanese tyranny, our nation will fall never to rise again, but if the whole nation rises up and fights defying death, it will greet the dawn of liberation.

The Korean people who are at a dead end because of the harsh colonial rule of the Japanese imperialists, are now waging a vigorous mass struggle against them across the country.

Following the general strike of dockers in Wonsan last year, the workers of the Pusan Textile Mill went on strike this year, and there were solid May Day strikes by workers in Seoul, Pyongyang, Taegu, Inchon, Hungnam, Chongjin and all other parts of the country. More recently the workers of the Sinhung Coal Mine came out on strike in force.

Together with the struggle of the workers, the struggle of the peasants is growing in intensity. Last year alone there were scores of tenant disputes and the peasants fought against the Japanese imperialists and pro-Japanese landlords in various places.

The students in Kwangju and youth and students throughout the country are also fighting resolutely against the Japanese imperialists’ policy of colonial slave education, their policy of obliterating national culture and their policy of obscuration and assimilation.

As mentioned above, the mass struggles of workers, peasants and youth and students against the Japanese imperialists and their lackeys take the form of uprisings everywhere. But they meet one setback after another in the face of the brutal armed repression of the Japanese imperialists, due to the lack of leadership based on the correct line and policy.

After the Korean Communist Party was dissolved in 1928, most of the factionalists—the self-styled “leaders” of the Korean revolution—gave up the revolutionary movement and turned philistines for their own comfort. On the other hand, some factionalists prompted by political ambitions and a desire for higher positions drove the people into a reckless uprising only to shed blood in vain. A typical example is the recent May 30 Uprising in east Manchuria. Without correctly analysing and assessing the revolutionary situation, the factionalists forced the peasants to join the reckless uprising. And so the barehanded rebels were brutally mown down by the bayonets of the Japanese imperialist army and police and the reactionary warlords, with the result that the revolutionary forces suffered tremendous losses and the revolution faced overwhelming difficulties. The uprising exposed and destroyed many revolutionary organizations, the revolutionary spirit of the anti-Japanese masses was lowered, and we had to experience bitter trials in our revolutionary struggle.

All this was due to the lack of correct leadership in our revolution.

Comrades.

The situation thus created urgently demands that our revolution be led along the road to victory on the basis of a correct revolutionary line, strategy and tactics.

We are young communists who have set out on the road of sacred struggle with a single purpose in mind to save the country and people, so we should solve this pressing demand of the times.

In order to lead the Korean revolution to certain victory, we must learn serious lessons from the stern reality that our people’s mass struggle against the Japanese fails time after time and our revolution undergoes ordeals.

Those who professed themselves to “guide” our people’s anti-Japanese national-liberation movement were divorced from the masses; they gathered together a few high-ranking officials solely to indulge in empty talk and quarrel, instead of mobilizing the masses of people for the revolutionary movement.

It is true that large numbers of people have taken part so far in various anti-Japanese movements. But they were scattered and unorganized.

The masters of the revolutionary struggle are the masses of people, and only when they are organized and mobilized can they win the revolutionary struggle. Therefore, the leaders of the movement must go among the masses and awaken them so that they themselves wage the revolutionary struggle as masters. But the self-styled leaders of the communist movement merely indulged in a war of words harmful to the revolution, and gave no thought to awakening the masses and mobilizing them for the revolutionary struggle.

Without organizing the masses for revolutionary struggle, is it possible to achieve the sacred cause of liberating the country from the vicious Japanese imperialist colonial yoke?

The so-called “leaders” of our people’s anti-Japanese national-liberation movement not only failed to mobilize the masses for revolutionary struggle but, being infected with flunkeyism towards great powers, brought serious harm to our revolution.

Since our aim is to carry through none other than the Korean revolution, we should solve all problems arising in the course of that revolution by our own efforts, proceeding from the specific conditions in our country.

But the factionalists who have infiltrated into the ranks of the communist movement are so imbued with flunkeyism that they have solved none of the problems facing our revolution but, rather, put obstacles in its way.

Let us see how the factionalists acted in connection with the problem of party building in our country. This problem concerns the correct fulfilment of the Korean revolution, so Korean communists have to solve it by themselves to suit their actual conditions. We need not get someone else’s approval to our revolutionary movement. Whether anyone approves or not, we will succeed if we conduct our revolution properly. Nevertheless, the M-L group, the Tuesday group, the North Wind Association group and other factions, each insisting that it is the only “orthodox” and genuine “Marxist” group, approached the Comintern for approval, instead of building up the Party. Thus the Korean Communist Party did not set down roots among the masses deeply enough to overcome Japanese imperialist oppression and, in the long run, was expelled from the Comintern.

After the Korean Communist Party was dissolved, the factionalists put up the signboard of “Party reconstruction’” and were engrossed solely in expanding their own factions and in the scramble for leadership. Then each of them without any foundation fabricated the “Party centre” and again tried to get approval from the Comintern. This clearly shows how completely saturated the factionalists were with flunkeyism.

The losses flunkeyism inflicted on our revolution were indeed serious. As already mentioned above, the May 30 Uprising was merely the brain child of the factionalists to satisfy their political ambitions, and from beginning to end took an ultra-”Left” direction under the instigation of the “Left” adventurists. This put up big obstacles in the path of our revolution.

Experience shows that in order to lead the revolution to victory, one must go among the masses of people and organize them, and solve all problems arising in the course of the revolution independently on one’s own responsibility in accord with the actual conditions, instead of relying on others.

Drawing on this lesson we regard it as most important to take the firm standpoint that the masters of the Korean revolution are the Korean people and that the Korean revolution should by all means be carried out by the Korean people themselves in a way suited to the actual conditions of their country.

Only when we adopt this standpoint towards the revolution can we map out a correct line and policy and achieve the sacred cause of national liberation.

In order to guide the Korean revolution correctly, we must know clearly what the character and tasks of the Korean revolution are at present.

How, then, can we define the character of the Korean revolution at the present stage? This question should likewise be solved on the basis of our specific situation.

Korea today is a colonial semi-feudal society occupied by the Japanese imperialists, a society where the normal development of capitalism is retarded and feudal relations are predominant. The Korean people are not only subjected to all sorts of national contempt, exploitation and oppression as Japanese colonial slaves but also suffer untold hardships in the shackles of feudal relations maintained by the power of the Japanese imperialists.

Unless we overthrow the foreign aggressors, the Japanese imperialists, we can neither free our nation from the yoke of colonial slavery nor abolish feudal relations. For this reason our people’s first and foremost task is to fight against the Japanese imperialists. The problem of launching an anti-Japanese struggle was already advanced by us as the immediate task when forming the Down-with-Imperialism Union.

While combatting the Japanese imperialists, we must struggle to abolish feudal relations. Only then can we free the peasants from the chains of feudalism and succeed in undermining the foundation of Japanese imperialist colonial rule.

Our people’s urgent demand is to carry out the tasks of the anti-imperialist revolution and of the anti-feudal revolution, the former being to fight against the Japanese imperialists and the latter against their accomplices, the feudal landlords. These two revolutionary tasks are closely connected with each other. The main task of the Korean revolution, therefore, is to overthrow the Japanese imperialists and win independence for Korea and, at the same time, to liquidate feudal relations and introduce democracy.

In view of the main task of the Korean revolution, its character at the present stage is anti-imperialist, anti-feudal democratic.

Broad sections of the anti-imperialist forces such as workers, peasants, youth and students, intellectuals, petty bourgeoisie, conscientious non-comprador capitalists and religious communities can participate in this revolution. By mobilizing all the anti-Japanese patriotic forces, we must strike down the Japanese imperialists and their accomplices—landlords, capitalists, pro-Japanese and traitors to the nation—and win national liberation and independence.

After defeating the Japanese imperialists, we must establish a government that will protect the interests of the workers, peasants and other broad masses of people. Only when we set up a people’s government, can we liquidate completely the remnant forces of imperialism and all the other reactionary forces, and successfully carry out the tasks of the anti-feudal democratic revolution.

We must not mark time after carrying out the anti-imperialist, anti-feudal democratic revolution, but press on with the revolution to build a socialist and communist society and, further, carry through world revolution, too. To complete the Korean revolution in a responsible manner is tantamount to being faithful to world revolution and to accelerating it.

In order to guarantee success in the Korean revolution, we must, first of all, organize and wage an armed struggle against the Japanese imperialists.

As the historical experience and lessons of the anti-Japanese struggle show, no one can bring us independence on a tray; we can never vanquish the Japanese imperialists and win national independence by peaceful means.

Moreover, the present situation urgently demands that we wage an organized armed struggle against the Japanese imperialists. Since the Japanese imperialists are intensifying their suppression without precedent and we are dealing with an enemy armed to the teeth, we must gradually build up the violent mass struggle into an organized armed struggle.
In colonies an armed struggle against imperialism is the law of the development of the national-liberation movement. Owing to its intrinsic aggressive and predatory nature, imperialism will never withdraw from the colonies of its own accord, and will always resort to brutal violence to maintain its colonial rule. So the imperialist forces of aggression must be smashed by revolutionary armed forces.

We must overthrow the Japanese imperialist aggressors and achieve national liberation and independence by our own efforts. Therefore, we must rapidly build up our strength by making good preparations for organizing and waging an anti-Japanese armed struggle.

To prepare ourselves well for an armed struggle, we must first organize a Korean Revolutionary Army.

We must form the Korean Revolutionary Army, a revolutionary armed organization, out of young communists educated and trained in revolutionary organizations  including the Young Communist League and the Anti-Imperialist Youth League. We must thus accumulate the necessary all-round experience for armed struggle.

In order to make the Korean revolution a success, we must also arouse and unite all the anti-Japanese patriotic forces and marshal them for the sacred struggle against the Japanese.

In essence, revolution is a struggle to liberate the masses of people, so it cannot triumph without the participation of the broad masses. Moreover, since we intend to defeat the Japanese imperialists and free the whole nation by relying on the efforts of the Koreans themselves, we must unite as one all the forces opposed to the Japanese imperialists.

That is why we must rally under the anti-Japanese banner all the forces with anti-Japanese tendencies, including men of religion and conscientious non-comprador capitalists, to say nothing of the workers and peasants.

Next, in order to guarantee success in the Korean revolution, we must step up the work of founding a party.

For the Korean revolution to be victorious there must be a Marxist-Leninist party, the General Staff of the revolution. Only a revolutionary party can formulate a correct line, strategy and tactics, mobilize the broad masses for a struggle against the Japanese imperialists, and build a socialist and communist society.

We must derive serious lessons from the dissolution of the Korean Communist Party and make an effort to found a party on a sound basis. To do this, we must not try to proclaim the founding of a party right away without any preparation or to gain the approval of the Comintern, as the factionalists did. We cannot by any means build a revolutionary party in the way the factionalists do; even if we formed a party it could not discharge its mission properly nor could it continue to exist in the face of a counter-revolutionary offensive.

We must not fail to found a new revolutionary party for ourselves. We must make ample preparations for the purpose. If thorough preparations are made, the approval of the Comintern is a foregone conclusion.

In going ahead with the formation of a party, we must, for a start, set up basic party organizations. This is of great significance not only in making general preparations for party building more substantial, but in striking deep roots among the broad masses as soon as the party comes into existence. We must form the party not by proclaiming the party center first but by setting up fully prepared basic party organizations and steadily expanding them.

We must closely link preparations for forming a party with the struggle against the Japanese imperialists. Only when we combine preparations for party founding with revolutionary practice, can we rear fine communists tried and tempered in struggle and carry out the Korean revolution successfully.

Comrades,

Whether we lead the Korean revolution to victory along the right path or not depends on how we implement the revolutionary tasks before us.

Since we are having to deal with difficult revolutionary tasks never tackled by anyone before, we must be ready to encounter numerous obstacles and hardships and, whenever they stand in the way, we will have to surmount them for ourselves as the masters of the Korean revolution.

Let us all fight stubbornly to hew the path of the Korean revolution.

Written Contribution of the Juche Idea Study Group of Ireland to the Online Meeting 28.06.2020

Dear Comrades,


I would like to convey my greetings to all Comrades present at this seminar on behalf of the Juche Idea Study Group of Ireland.


On the 25th June 1950, the Fatherland Liberation War began with the south Korean puppet army firing the first shots in anger,and invading DPR Korea, leaving the Korean People’s Army no choice but to respond back defending the People and it’s Republic against the imperialism forces of the south Korean puppets and United States imperialists.


Prior to the Fatherland Liberation war we must understand the conditions which were set for it! It was nearly five years since Korea was liberated from Japanese imperialism, one month after the aggressive forces of the United States entered Korea, thus sabotaging the minds of the Korean people in the south of the country which caused reactionary behavior. The intentions of the United States imperialists wasn’t that of helping Korea to come together but one of making it their “state” and sadly we still see this in south Korea.


The Soviet Red Army had declared in August 1945 it wouldn’t interfere in Korea and begin it’s withdrawal to leave the Korean people to unite their country.


However events in the south took a turn for the worst when an imperialist puppet master called MacArthur decided to seize the south and turn it into a facist reactionary dictatorship putting the Korean people of the south into a living nightmare, and “americanising” the south with English being the official language thus ripping away the rich culture and tradition of Korea and putting a deep division between the north! The imperialists quickly installed it’s own puppet government headed by the traitor Syngman Rhee.


With these conditions set in the south and an aggressive invasion force waiting to cross the 38th Parallel to invade Socialist Peaceful Juche Korea it was no wonder that war was inevitable.


The Korean People’s Army fought many heroic battles against imperialist forces thus resulting in a glorious win for People’s Korea against the imperialists. The imperialist forces were beaten and had no choice but to sign an armistice. As the saying goes “They were sent with their tails between their legs” This showed that the might of a People's Army and the masses are unbeatable! Today we are witnessing the same with sanctions against People’s Korea but thanks to the People being one mass they just brush it off and keep continuing.


We are inspired by the actions of President KIM IL Sung, Chairman KIM JONG IL and Respected Supreme Commander Marshal KIM JONG UN. Should the imperialists try again which they have threatened many times… they will be sent with “their tails between the legs” and humiliated.

Heroic Anti-Imperialist Struggle of Korean People is a Shining Example to all Progressive People of the World-speech made by KFA Serbia to Online Meeting 28.06.2020


Momentous 7 decades have passed since the start of the great Fatherland Liberation War. And even though the world has changed so much since then and so many years have passed, heroic deeds of the soldiers of Korean People’s Army under the leadership of General Kim Il Sung determined to defend their homeland and people from vile claws of imperialist forces continue to shine throughout generations and generations as proof of iron-willed determination and patriotism.
When the DPRK was provoked in the early morning of June 25th by the traitor collaborationist regime in the south and their puppet masters, the Korean People’s Army moved quickly and responded thunderously, annihilating enemy forces on the peninsula in just a couple of months. Even though they were vastly outnumbered by the US colonial forces, the heroic soldiers of the Korean People’s Army, armed with firm determination to liberate their homeland from colonial occupation, managed to pull incredible feats and deal devastating blow after devastating blow to occupying units stationed there.
In order to try and defeat the DPRK, the US and their collaborationists then turned to unconventional warfare tactics and weapons against civilians in order to break the spirit of  Korean people. The doctrine of “Scorched Earth” employed by the US military implied that every building along the way must be burned to the ground, showing complete disregard of Korean people as well as their south Korean puppets. Napalm was employed and in infamous air-raids approximately 20% of population (about 2 million civilians) were killed in the northern half of Korea alone as evidenced by US air force members of staff.
The US threw everything in their might into defeating Korea, they intended to, very much like the Japanese, use Korea as a base to conquer the continent of Asia, as well as a base for their nuclear weapons which they intended to use against the peoples of Asia. DPRK stood as the defender of peace and lives of millions in their own country and also abroad. The defeat in Korea, the US politicians spoke, would mean the defeat in Asia for US.
But even in the darkest of days the Korean people never backed down, confident in the socialist ideal and leadership of the great General they fought back the imperialists with everything they could and would eventually force them to sign a ceasefire, humiliating the American empire and stopping it in its tracks to enslave millions in Korea and Asia as a whole.

Heroic and selfless deeds of the soldiers of the Korean People’s Army who laid their lives determined to defend their homeland and people of the world, inspired by socialist ideas and benevolent spirit of international solidarity as well as their General and his wise leadership in the war, will go on to inspire many anti-imperialist fighters in Vietnam, anti-colonial movements of Africa and the rest of the world.

The heroic anti-imperialist fight of the Korean people continues to this day under the leadership of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un. The Korean people are determined more than ever to follow their Supreme Leader to final victory in single-hearted unity, defending their homeland and uniting around the Great Revolutionary Ideas of Juche and Songun. The Korean People’s Army is ready as ever to answer any and all provocations of the imperialists and defend their homeland with thunderous response annihilating any enemy that dares cross their path. Inspired by the spirit of the anti-imperialist fighters of the Fatherland Liberation War, with iron determination and discipline, soldiers of the Korean People’s Army are ready to again commit heroic deeds as their predecessors were in defense of their homeland and humanity from imperialism and reactionary forces!

Let Us Forever Be Inspired by the Heroic Soldiers of the Korean People’s Army,
Let Us Forever Remember those who Laid Their Lives on the Battlefield Against the Imperialists in the Fatherland Liberation War!

Speech of Dr Dermot Hudson to the Online Meeting on the Anniversary of the provocation of the Fatherland Liberation War (held on 28.06.2020)

Now seventy years , some seven decades, have passed since the US imperialists provoked the Fatherland Liberation War which is referred to by the mainstream media as the  Korean War , although it was not a war between Koreans but between a small country , the DPRK , and the American empire. Indeed it was a war against Korea , against the Korean people .
  It is not the purpose of my speech to either give a blow by blow account of the Fatherland Liberation War from start to finish , this may be the topic of another meeting . Nor it to examine the cause of the war and the issue who started it . To me it is pretty self-evident that the war was provoked by the south Korean puppets and the US imperialists . I would recommend people read the excellent ‘ The US imperialists Started the Korean War ‘ and “ DISTORTION OF US PROVOCATION OF KOREAN WAR’  . However for those of you who doubt this I will just tell you a story told to me by an old teacher of mine . On June 26th 1950 he was taking a party of children from his school around the offices of the ‘Daily Herald ‘ ( a long defunct newspaper ) when they started the visit the ticker tape coming out said ‘ south Korea attacks north  Korea’ ‘ but when they were finishing the visit this had been changed to ‘north Korea attacks south Korea’ . It just shows you even then how the media manufacture the news ! . I would also point  out that John Foster Dulles , US envoy , was in south Korea 7 days before the war broke out . If the US did not provoke the war what was he doing there ?
The US threw into the war unprecedented numbers of troops and amounts of materials , including  troops from 15 of their satellite countries including to our eternal shame those from Britain .Prescription charges were introduced by the government to pay for the cost of sending British troops which showed that the aggressive war against the Korean people was paralleled by reactionary policies at home.
  In fact 73 million tons of war materials were used by the US in the war .The war raged on until July 27th 1953 when the US kneeled down and signed the Armistice Agreement.
The US imperialists, the ringleader of the world imperialism and international reactionaries, provoked a war in Korea on the 25th of June 1950 by instigating their south Korean puppets to attack the young Democratic People's Republic of Korea. The US imperialists were hungry for profits and conquest. The US imperialists fought an unjust aggressive war against the Korean people. The US imperialists launched a war of conquest against the DPRK , a war to destroy the Juche-based people's democratic system in the DPRK as well to destroy socialism in Asia and the world.
    President KIM IL SUNG summed up the Fatherland Liberation War as follows

The Fatherland Liberation War waged by our people was a fierce ,anti-imperialist , anti-US struggle against the allied forces of world reaction headed by US imperialism and a bitter class struggle against the enemies of the people”
  The war was a struggle against US imperialism  and the allied forces of world which unfortunately included the British Labour government but significantly fascist , reactionary and feudal regimes such as Apartheid South Africa, Colombia of the death squads, fascist Greece , Haile Selaissie's Ethiopia .Surely it was not a coincidence It was no coincidence that George Lincoln Rockwell the founder and leader of the American Nazi Party served as a lieutenant commander in the US imperialist forces during the war!

 It was also a class struggle against the capitalists and landlords in south Korea and former capitalists and landlords within the DPRK who wanted to restore  the capitalist system
The Fatherland Liberation War of the Korean people proved to be a fiery crucible of the Songun idea and the Juche idea of self-reliance.
The barbarity of the US imperialists during the war was beyond human description.At least 1.2 million people were killed  by the US 35,383 people were murdered by the US at Sinchon -ri and 1,050 people at Susan-ri (one third of the population of the area), just to give a few examples.
I myself have visited the Sinchon museum 5 times , 3 times to the old museum and the new expanded and modernised museum twice . I have met survivors of the massacre by US troops and also participated in an international rally a Sinchon in 2013 . In 2017 I actually made a speech at Sinchon.
The US imperialists tried to exterminate the Korean people by carrying out the war that they long planned .
The war exposed the barbarity and decadence of US imperialism . As President KIM IL SUNG said ‘Engels once called the British army the most brutal army. During the Second World War, the German fascist army surpassed the barbarism of the British army. No human brain could ever imagine more diabolic and terrible cruelty then those done by the Hitler gangsters at that time. But in Korea, the Americans have far exceed the Hitlerites!

The aggressive and predatory nature of the US hostile policy towards the DPRK remains after even 70 years .
 We must do more to expose it and campaign  against it .

SOLIDARITY RESOLUTION ON THE OCCASION OF THE 70TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE PROVOCATION OF THE FATHERLAND LIBERATION WAR



Seventy years have passed since the US and south Korea provoked the Fatherland Liberation War known as the Korean War in some countries . Today a fragile armistice agreement is in place but no peace treaty has been signed. US troops remain in south Korea and US threats against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea still persist despite the US saying it wants dialogue and negotiations with the DPRK .
  Recently the  Institute for Disarmament and Peace of DPRK Foreign Ministry issued a paper titled ‘ Withdrawal of U.S. Hostile Policy towards DPRK - Indispensable Prerequisite for Peace and Stability on Korean Peninsula’ which concluded as follows “

Under the condition where the U.S., the biggest nuclear power and the only user of nuclear weapons, clings to the pathological and inveterate hostile policy towards us, while indulging itself in extreme nuclear threats and blackmail, we will continue to further build up our strength to contain the persistent nuclear threats from the U.S. and we will never shrink from this road we have chosen”

This meeting supports the DPRK’s resolve to build its strength to counter the US nuclear threat.
 Moreover we demand
Withdrawal of US troops from south Korea
Withdrawal of all US nuclear weapons from the Korean peninsula and adjoining regions
Conclusion of a DPRK -US peace treaty
We support the struggle of the DPRK and also the south Korean people led by the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front of south Korea . We urge that more should be done to expose the criminal nature of the US occupation of south Korea.

Report of Online Meeting on the 70th anniversary of the provocation of the Fatherland Liberation War by the US imperialists and south Korea puppets


The UK Korean Friendship Association together with the British Group for the Study of the Juche Idea and Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK hosted an online international seminar on the 70th anniversary of the provocation of the Fatherland Liberation War by the US imperialists . The online meeting was held on the 28th of June at 1500 hours . It was participated in by UK KFA members from London , Stoke On Trent and Scotland , also by representatives of KFA Serbia and KFA Italy . The Juche Idea Study Group of Ireland sent their greetings to the meeting and submitted a written paper. Greetings were also received from the Brazilian Centre for the Study of Songun Politics and the Bangladesh Songun Politics Study Group
Dr Dermot Hudson chairman of the British Group for the Study of the Juche Idea and Chairman of the UK Korean Friendship Association said that ' Now seventy years , some seven decades, have passed since the US imperialists provoked the Fatherland Liberation War which is referred to by the mainstream media as the Korean War , although it was not a war between Koreans but between a small country , the DPRK , and the American empire. Indeed it was a war against Korea , against the Korean people ...

The aggressive and predatory nature of the US hostile policy towards the DPRK remains after even 70 years .

A representative of KFA Serbia said in his speech that 'But even in the darkest of days the Korean people never backed down, confident in the socialist ideal and leadership of the great General they fought back the imperialists with everything they could and would eventually force them to sign a ceasefire, humiliating the American empire and stopping it in its tracks to enslave millions in Korea and Asia as a whole."

A representative of KFA Italy Piedmont Region and deputy director of deputy director of the Juche idea Study Centre in Milan said that the work of Professor Bruce Cummings of the US and Italian Professor Maurizio Riotto had proved that the US imperialists had started the Fatherland Liberation War .


Shaun Pickford Chairman of the Staffordshire branch of the UK Korean Friendship Association and secretary of the Stoke On Trent branch of the British Group for the Study of the Juche Idea said that the US imperialists committed many crimes in Korea . He had read the confessions written by the captured US pilots who admitted to the use of biological weapons in Korea . He went on that the Juche -orientated tactics of President KIM IL SUNG showed great flexibility . The DPRK also introduced free medical care during the Fatherland Liberation War . Comrade Pickford concluded that The epochal defeat inflicted on US imperialism during the Fatherland Liberation War by the Korean people led by the Great Kim IL Sung was an inspiration to the oppressed peoples of Asia, Africa and Latin America in their struggles with colonialism and neo-colonialism. The July 27th, 1953 victory was a textbook of liberation struggle for all anti-imperialist resistance fighters everywhere.
The written contribution of the Juche Idea Study Group of Ireland read in part 'We are inspired by the actions of President KIM IL Sung, Chairman KIM JONG IL and Respected Supreme Commander Marshal KIM JONG UN. Should the imperialists try again which they have threatened many times… they will be sent with “their tails between the legs” and humiliated.'

Speaking about the the 4th anniversary of the election of respected Marshal KIM JONG UN as chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK Dr Hudson said that the DPRK under the leadership of Marshal
KIM JONG UN had become an independent nuclear power and had successfully built up the economy.

The representative of KFA Italy Piedmont Region and deputy director of deputy director of the Juche idea Study Centre in Milan said that thanks to comrade KIM JONG IL the DPRK had avoided the revisionist degeneration that occurred in other socialist countries . In particular it avoided the error of disbanding the farm machinery stations.

A letter to respected Marshal KIM JONG UN was adopted .
Also a letter to the Pyongyang Mission of the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front of south Korea and a solidarity resolution was adopted

Leading the DPRK to victory.
