                  London 1st of March   Juche 109(2020)
  The Association for the Study of Songun Politics(ASSPUK) ,  the British Group for the Study of the Juche Idea  (BGSJI), the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA) and British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification on the Korean Peninsula (BSCPRKP)issued the following joint statement on the occasion of the 102nd  anniversary of the March 1st popular uprising in Korea
   The March 1st popular uprising of the Korean people was a heroic act of mass resistance to the barbaric imperialist colonial rule of Japan . It was the result of the bitter resentment of the Korean people towards imperialist Japan which had annexed Korea some 9 years before in 1910 after long coveting the land of Korea and planning to seize it by hook or by crook. The March 1st popular uprising was a just uprising against oppression and exploitation by Japanese imperialism.
  The great leader President KIM IL SUNG wrote in his reminiscences  "With the Century " that
"Through the March First Popular Uprising the Korean people demonstrated to the whole world that ours are a people with a strong spirit of independence who do not want to live as the slaves of others and that they are a people with indomitable stamina and ardent patriotism who fear no sacrifice in order to regain their country"
    The reactionary Japanese imperialists brutally suppressed the  uprising by force killing many innocent people. A total of 7 500  people were killed, 46 900 arrested and jailed and 15 900 wounded. This shows the gruesome barbarity of the samurai wielding bloodthirsty Japanese imperialists.
                                                    

     Japan has never apologized for its crimes nor has it paid reparations to the Korean people. Instead top Japanese politicians visit the shrine of the war criminals. Today Japan is the shock brigade of
US imperialism in Asia. Japan is being encouraged by the US to see itself as a regional power(not that Japanese militarism needs much encouragement)  Japanese imperialism is planning to make a comeback in Korea. It has laid claims to Tok Islet in south Korea. Japan also dominates the south Korean economy and jointly exploits south Korea with US imperialism . Japan pursues an extremely hostile policy towards the DPRK. Japan  commits acts of terrorism against Korean residents in Japan and is denying them the right to education.
      Although the March 1st popular uprising was brutally suppressed by the Japanese imperialists the independent spirit of the heroic up-risers is alive . Today that spirit of independence is represented by the Juche idea and the anti-imperialist Democratic People's Republic of Korea led by the dear respected leader Marshal KIM JONG UN , outstanding anti-imperialist leader of our epoch. South Korea lacks independence and the spirit of  Juche.  .True to the spirit of the March 1st Uprisers south Korea must become totally  independent and throw off all shackles.
    Our organisations urge  that Japan should apologise to the Korean people and compensate them for its crimes . Moreover Japan should take its hands off Korea and keep out ! Forward to a totally independent reunified Korea free from the domination of outside forces,.

 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 a joint statement about the recent 2nd Plenary Meeting of the 8th Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea
;

The 2nd Plenary Meeting of the 8th Central Committee of the Workers Party of Korea(WPK) was held in Pyongyang , DPRK from the 8th of February to the 11th of February . The meeting was presided over and guided by the general secretary of the WPK respected Marshal KIM JONG UN . The main purpose of the meeting was to discuss the implementation of the decisions of the historic 8th Congress of the WPK . The meeting was attended not only by members and alternate members of the Central Committee of the WPK but also heads of departments and local party officials .


The meeting discussed the implementation of the new five year plan during its first year . The meeting correctly criticised those who were not properly implementing the new five year and had tried to lower targets which had been set by the Congress of the WPK . The meeting defined the  abuse of power , bureaucracy and   irregularities  as ‘anti-Party, anti-state and anti-people acts’ . Moreover it considered acts of self-centeredness and self -preservation as the biggest obstacle to implementing party decisions . 


The meeting adopted new militant slogans for the implementation of the new five year plan . It was also resolved to further intensify the struggle against anti-socialist and non-socialist practices.


It is indeed very heartening that the WPK will step up the struggle against all anti-socialist and non-socialist acts . In the past the former revisionist led socialist  countries failed to struggle against anti-socialism and instead even connived at them , People’s Korea led by great Marshal KIM JONG UN and the great Workers’ Party of Korea will not fall into the same trap.


Hearing the news of the 2nd Plenary Meeting of the 8th Central Committee of the WPK our organisations feel very encouraged and inspired . We are sure that the decisions of the 2nd plenary meeting of the 8th Central Committee of the WPK will lead to a great upsurge in socialist construction under the banner of self-reliance . We support the decisions of the 2nd Plenary Meeting of the 8th Central Committee of the WPK and wish the Korean people great success in implementing the decisions of the 8th Congress of the WPK , also in carrying out the five plan and decisively smashing all anti-socialist and non-socialist acts  !
