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 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 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 .!
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
