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 the UK Preparatory Committee For the 2017 Gathering to Praise the Great Persons Born of Mt Paektu issued a joint statement denouncing US secretary of state John Kerry's remarks at the recent ASEAN Regional Forum held in Laos;
  We denounce US secretary of state Kerry for slandering the Democratic People's Republic of Korea at an international forum and falsely accusing the DPRK of escalating tensions on the Korean peninsula.
   It is none other the US imperialists who have openly carried out exercises for invading the DPRK and for eliminating the supreme leadership of the DPRK through so-called "beheading operations ".The US imperialists have also shipped more military hardware into south Korea.
   The arrogant Yankee imperialist chieftain Kerry plays the worn-out record that the US exercises in south Korea are "defensive " or because of the DPRK's nuclear deterrent but this simply puts the cart before the horse as the US and south Korean military exercises in south Korea existed long before the DPRK  had access to the nuclear deterrent .Indeed it was the US that first introduced
nuclear weapons onto the Korean peninsula in massive violation of the Korean
Armistice Agreement.Kerry is ignorant of these facts.
    The US imperialist are clearly looking for excuses to justify the arms build-up in south Korea which is been carried out not only to overpower People's Korea but for  the benefit of the giant US capitalist munitions monopolies such as Lockhead Martin.The US secretary of state is indulging a false blame game. It is the US that is responsible for the tensions on the Korean peninsula.
    We condemn the warmongering moves of the US imperialists and support all measures of the DPRK to defend its independence and sovereignty against the
US imperialist threat.

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 the UK Preparatory Committee For the 2017 Gathering to Praise the Great Persons Born of Mt Paektu issued a joint statement supporting the statement of the  National Peace Committee of Korea (NPCK) of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea which was made on Thursday 28th of July :
    Not only have the aggressive US imperialists decided to deploy THAAD in south Korea but they are also deploying "Patriot " missiles in south Korea. recently they moved some from the U.S. Air Force's Kadena base, Okinawa, Japan to the US base at Kunsan, North Jolla Province of south Korea.This is  in addition to the permanent deployment of the nuclear-powered submarine  Mississippi and super-large nuclear-powered Ohio as well as plans to deploy
more advanced versions of the Patriot missiles in south Korea.
   The spokesman of the DPRK NPCK was totally correct to say that " These are extremely dangerous military provocations as they further escalate the tension on the Korean peninsula and disturb the regional peace and security" indeed  such moves only further destablise the situation on the Korean peninsula and  are a further twist to the spiralling of tensions in Korea and the far east.The  deployment of Patriot missiles to south Korea is a threat to world peace.
    It is nonsense to suggest that the "Patriot" missiles are defensive as they are
there to make a pre-emptive strike on the DPRK much easier.Moreover why is a so-called "defensive " weapon deployed thousands of miles from the shores of the United States.
   Our organisations firmly support the call of the DPRK NPCK  for a total and unconditional pullout of US forces from the south of Korea . The slogan "US out of Korea "must reverberate far and wide and must become the slogan of the peace movement in different lands.

Expanding campaign against deployment of THAAD



Hair-cut, street march, hunger strike, candlelight demonstrations, seminars, signature campaign, rallies and protest visit have been staged in south Korea by people of various circles including workers, peasants, youth and students as well as professors and religious men to protest against the deployment of THAAD.
Hundreds of civic bodies have launched the actions against the deployment of THAAD and its scale is on the increase.
The civic organization including the Solidarity for Peace and Unification said that the US and south Korean authorities plunged the south Koreans into a fear of war through the declaration of THAAD deployment and launched protest action.
On July18, the national measure committee against deployment of THAAD held a press conference in front of the building of national assembly in which it asserted that if THAAD is deployed in south Korea, it would be reduced to an advanced base for safeguarding the US and Japan.
The south Korean mass media including Kyunghyang Daily NewsHangyerehMinjok Ilbo and CBS revealed the essence and possibility of danger of THAAD deployment and censured the authorities treacherous act.
The opposition parties reproached the Park Geun-hye regime’s unilateral decision of the deployment of THAAD without public consensus.
The residents of Songju County expressed their towering indignation at the authorities’ decision and turned out as one in the action against the deployment of THAAD.
The Songju Committee for Checking THAAD Deployment involving inhabitants of Songju County, North Gyeongsang Province launched a protest action in Seoul on July 21 to urge the authorities to withdraw the decision of deployment of THAAD through tonsure and silence.
They chanted slogans against the deployment of THAAD, holding placards written “Bad president, minister and premier”.
The south Korean people’s stubborn actions against the deployment of THAAD deal a fatal blow at the treacherous Park Geun-hye regime.

Workers’ drive against retrogressive labour reform




South Korean workers’ action against the south Korean authorities’ retrogressive labor reform is fiercer.  
The Korean Confederation of Trade Unions (KCTU) entered into a large-scale general strike across south Korea on July 20
The workers staged general strike at more than 250 worksites in 14 areas demanding the abrogation of anti-worker policy, stop to suppression of the KCTU, stop to restructuring sacrificing workers, wage-hike and ensuring of the rights of part-time workers, teachers and government employees.
The KCTU held a rally for the general strike with attendance of over 11 000 workers in Seoul. The acting chairman of the KCTU said that the government and capitalists branded the general strike as an illegal and egoistic and asked back that who take an illegal act and drive the part-timers to death.   
The business groups are discharging the workers by enforcing the labor restructuring and suppressing righteous trade unions activities, and neglecting to take appropriate measures when the part-timers are killed or wounded by accident, he noted.  
The chairman of trade unions of public transportation warned that unless the piecework system aiming at mass dismissal is withdrawn until September 27, the workers of the key industries and public sectors would launch an indefinite general strike.
They went to the building of the national assembly to hold another rally.
They poured out their hearts that a high-ranking public official defiled the popular masses as dog and pig. They branded the high-ranking bureaucrats of the "government" and the police, servants of the power, as dogs barking at their owners and the plutocrats as pigs as they betray even the people to meet their interests.
The righteous action of south Korean workers, who want to lead a life worthy of man, would keep a vigorous progress.  

Hotbed of Corruption


South Korean people’s dissatisfaction with the Cheongwadae and the ruling Saenuri Party is growing in intensity as the Cheongwadae and the ruling Saenuri Party’s recent scandals are laid bare in a row.
The Saenuri Party’s former head and his members in charge of information committed scandals when they launched propaganda for the last parliamentary election.
In this connection, a spokesman of the emergency measure committee of the Saenuri Party shifted all the responsibility for the scandal on to those suspected to divert elsewhere public criticism.
In recent, a transcribed telephone was opened to the public that the leading figures of the Saenuri Party forced a candidate to change his constituency in order to field pro-Park candidate.
In this regard, the opposition parties as well as within the ruling party asserted that the investigation committee should be formed to hold legal responsibility for it.
Woo Byong-woo, a civilian secretary of Cheongwadae, is under sharp criticism of the opposition parties and mass media as he was involved in a deal of additional real estate scandal and illegal designation of the director of the Prosecutors Office.
The Park Geun-hye regime and the Saenuri Party are a cesspool of corruption and their companies are a cluster of treachery.
The south Korean people turned their backs to the south Korean ruling quarters which seek a gay life and lust for power in disregard of people’s livelihood.

NPCK Spokesman Calls for Struggle for Pullback of U.S. Forces from S. Korea

Pyongyang, July 28 (KCNA) -- After deciding to deploy THAAD in south Korea, the U.S. recently transferred a battery of PAC-3 to the base of U.S. imperialist aggressor forces in Kunsan, North Jolla Province of south Korea from the U.S. Air Force's Kadena base, Okinawa.
Earlier, the U.S. decided to deploy on a permanent basis nuclear-powered submarine Mississippi and super-large nuclear-powered Ohio, which had entered Pusan Port, in the waters surrounding the Korean peninsula. The U.S. is blustering that it would additionally deploy improved PAC-3 MSE, whose maximum altitude is twice that of PAC-3 now deployed in the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces present in south Korea.
A spokesman for the National Peace Committee of Korea (NPCK) said in a statement on Thursday:
These are extremely dangerous military provocations as they further escalate the tension on the Korean peninsula and disturb the regional peace and security.
To force the U.S. imperialist aggressor troops to pull out of south Korea is the basic way of foiling the U.S. frantic armed buildup for a nuclear war and preventing a nuclear war disaster on the peninsula.
The U.S. troops in south Korea are like a time bomb planted in the powder keg for a nuclear war and the withdrawal of the U.S. troops is the most urgent matter which brooks no further delay.
The struggle to defuse the danger of a nuclear war on the peninsula and guarantee the regional peace and security should start from pulling the U.S. troops out of south Korea.
The DPRK, which joined the front rank of nuclear powers, is now fully ready to cope with all forms of wars to be ignited by the U.S. imperialists, and the U.S. troops in south Korea will be the primary target of our merciless deadly strike.
The U.S. should properly face up to the strategic position of the DPRK and the trend of the times and behave itself and pull the aggressor forces and war equipment out of south Korea without delay.
If the south Korean authorities sincerely hope for peace and reunification, they should roll back their despicable sycophantic pro-U.S. policy and make a resolute decision to withdraw the U.S. aggressor forces from south Korea, as unanimously demanded by all Koreans. -0

FM Spokesman Denounces U.S. Secretary of State's Reckless Remarks against DPRK

  Pyongyang, July 28 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to the question put by KCNA on Thursday as regards the U.S. cunning moves at the ministerial meeting of ASEAN Regional Forum held in Laos to lay the blame for the escalating tension on the Korean peninsula at the door of the former, while taking issue with its self-defensive nuclear deterrent:
    U.S. Secretary of State Kerry spouted out foolish remarks that the U.S. has no hostile intent against north Korea at the ministerial meeting of the ASEAN Regional Forum on July 26.
    Why is the U.S. resorting to reckless saber-rattling, openly vociferating about "beheading operation" and "occupation of Pyongyang" after introducing all kinds of strategic assets into south Korea if it has no hostile intent against the DPRK?
    The successive U.S. presidents personally made public appearances and openly included the DPRK, a dignified sovereign state, on the list of preemptive nuclear attack while terming it "part of an axis of evil" and "a country that has to be removed" and cried out for "collapse of system." How can this be understood?
    Kerry asserted the joint military exercises have never posed problems and the DPRK-U.S. Agreed Framework was concluded with joint military exercises going on. This is sophism enough to make even a cat laugh.
    As he holds the post of the U.S. Secretary of State, he should know the historical facts that once joint military exercises were suspended after the U.S. complied with the demand of the DPRK for it and that those exercises have been one of major causes that made the hard-won DPRK-U.S. agreements go bust.
    The U.S. joint military exercises on the Korean peninsula are not attributable to the DPRK's access to nukes but because the U.S. steadily increased nuclear threats while ceaselessly holding war exercises for aggression, the DPRK was compelled to opt for having access to nuclear deterrence and bolster it up.
    The true aim sought by the U.S. is to shift the blame for the tension on the Korean peninsula on to the DPRK, secure a pretext for its arms buildup and joint military exercises pursuant to its rebalancing strategy in Asia-Pacific for aggression, and dodge the neighboring countries' protest and criticism of its decision to deploy THAAD in south Korea as an immediate task.
    No one can predict what situation the U.S. reckless arms buildup and the upcoming August joint military exercises will create on the Korean peninsula and in its vicinity.
    The U.S. frantic hostile policy toward the DPRK will prompt the DPRK to do everything it can to defend its sovereignty and dignity, and the U.S. will be held accountable for all the ensuing consequences. -0-
