Quote on the south Korean revolution by the great leader President KIM IL SUNG

The basic contradiction in south Korean society at the present stage is the contradiction between US imperialism and its accomplices—the landlords, comprador capitalists and reactionary bureaucrats—on the one hand and the workers, peasants, urban petty bourgeois and national capitalists on the other.
Therefore, to attain freedom and liberation, the people in south Korea must drive out the US imperialist forces of aggression and destroy their accomplices—the landlords, comprador capitalists and reactionary bureaucrats. Of these US imperialism is the No. 1 target of struggle for the south Korean people.
There can be no freedom and liberation for the people or social progress, nor can the reunification of our country be achieved, until the US imperialist aggressive troops are driven out and its colonial rule is abolished in south Korea.

The revolution in south Korea is a national-liberation revolution against the foreign imperialist forces of aggression, and a democratic revolution against the forces of feudalism.


The great leader President KIM IL SUNG on south Korea

Since the first days of their occupation of south Korea, the US imperialists have pursued a policy of military aggression and colonial enslavement. As a result, south Korea has been completely turned into a colony, a military base of the US imperialists.
The south Korean “regime”, since it is a puppet regime installed by he US imperialists by force of arms, is nothing but a docile instrument for executing the instructions of its US overlords.
Through this puppet regime and with their so-called “aid” as bait, the US imperialists have placed all the political, economic, cultural and military spheres of south Korea under their control.



South Korea the most corrupt country in the world and the hypocrisy of the Western media

Well folks one place that the Western media are not calling for "regime change " or "human rights investigations " or for a colour revolution is south Korea , Recently a leading south Korean "businessman " Sung Wan-jong committed suicide after being placed under investigation for corruption . His suicide note revealed a list of 8 names that he had given bribes to , including south Korean "prime minister " Lee Wan-koo. Lee had been given a bribe of £27,000 . Of course this is the tip of the iceberg as south Korea is the one of the most corrupt societies on earth where the rich get ever richer and the poor get ever poorer but you never get the bleeding heart writers of the "Guardian " and "Independent " going on about how there needs to be change in south Korea and how Ms Park should be brought down , Oh not they just bang on and on about "human rights " in the DPRK and never notice what is going on in south Korea !

The Reactionary anti-socialist , anti-communist and anti-people nature of the UN Report on "Human Rights " in the DPRK.

A lot has been said on the subject of the so-called UN "Commission of Inquiry " report into "human rights " in the DPRK . The report has been pulled apart and refuted many times over . However it is relevant to make a few more comments on it as it apparently takes issue with the DPRK's treatment of "landlords, capitalists, collaborators with the Japanese colonial government " . This shows the absurdity of the report and its deeply reactionary nature . Why shouldn't those(and their descendants) who collaborated with the cruel and barbarous colonial rule of imperialist Japan be punished ? What is wrong with this ? Those who betray their country and co-operate with imperialism need to be dealt with sternly . Similarly the DPRK was absolutely correct to crush exploiters like landlords and capitalists who exploited the people and made their lives a misery . In fact the DPRK dealt with such elements in an even, fair and proportionate manner . Visiting the DPRK in 2013 I spoke to my guide on about the land reform and the landlords . The landlords were not shot or hung but their land was confiscated without compensation and distributed free . The landlords by and large were not even imprisoned , they were moved and resettled in other areas . They were even given a piece of land to work (what could be more fairer) . The trouble was that being a bunch of lazy useless idle rich parasites the landlords refused to work .
Under socialism it is necessary to crush the remnants of the exploiting class who try to restore the old exploitative system , in doing so it actually increases the freedom of the working people to live free from exploitation . As the great leader President KIM IL SUNG said "Also, within our social system subversive counter-revolutionary influences infiltrate from without and the survivors of the overthrown exploiter classes agitate within; so, the class struggle is necessary to suppress these counter-revolutionary activities.
In this way, there is, in a socialist society, a form of class struggle exercising dictatorship over both external and internal enemies, along with the basic form of class struggle which aims to revolutionize and remould the workers, peasants and working intellectuals through cooperation so as to achieve unity and solidarity
Thus the criticisms of the DPRK by the "Commission of Inquiry ", apart from being fabricated and based on the words of a handful of treacherous turncoats , also reveal a deep anti-socialist , anti-communist bias.  At the end of the day the report is an anti-people report !

ASSPUK and JISGE on the 3rd anniversary of the publication of The Great Kim Il Sung Is the Eternal Leader of Our Party and Our People"

London 26th of April Juche 104(2015)
        The Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK and JISGE published the following joint statement on the occasion of the recent (20th of April) 3rd anniversary of the publication of the work "The Great Kim Il Sung Is the Eternal Leader of Our Party and Our People" by the dear respected Marshal  Kim Jong Un on the 20th of April 2012;
                                  Dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un in the  work makes it clear that the people of the DPRK  will uphold the great leader President Kim Il Sung as their eternal leader . President Kim Il Sung was truly unique as his revolutionary career started in his teens and ended in his 80s, his life spanned the 20th century . Moreover as dear respected comrade Kim Jong Un points out in the work ;
He was a great leader of the people, who put forward the masses, once oppressed and exploited, as the master of history, and raised their dignity and value to the highest level possible.

His was a noble life of a people’s leader, who regarded “The people are my God” as his motto, applied it to his ideas and leadership and turned it into reality. For him, the masses of the people were always a teacher, and he was their loyal son. He began his revolutionary activities by going amongst them; the revolutionary activities were conducted always by relying on them, and they were dedicated, from beginning to end, to defending and achieving their independence. Thanks to these activities, the masses’ demand and aspiration for independence became ideas, theories, lines and policies, and the most revolutionary and scientific guidelines, which were easily understood by them and which indicated the true roads for them to take to shape their destiny, were provided."
                                        This distinguishes President Kim Il Sung from other political leaders and statesmen of the 20th century. It was not simply the fact that the great leader President Kim Il Sung's career spanned the century but his unswerving adherence to independence as well as his deep love for the people  which were intimately inter-twinned. President Kim Il Sung was the greatest of great leaders.
As dear respected comrade Kim Jong Un explains the road of the DPRK was not an easy one but an acute struggle, a class struggle against the various forces that schemed to hold back or stifle the DPRK such as imperialism , sycophancy , dominationism and revisionism . The DPRK is the legacy bequeathed by the great leader President Kim Il Sung. The socialism of the DPRK established by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung is the most independent socialism which combines socialism with the national character and independence and it is the most invincible socialism.
In the work the dear respected leader Marshal Kim Jong Un First Secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea maintains that the DPRK and WPK must follow the road of independence, Songun and socialism.
"The times may pass and we may encounter ordeals, but we must invariably advance along the road of independence, the road of Songun and the road of socialism, which Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il followed throughout their life, and thus fulfil the mission and duty as befits the descendants of Kim Il Sung and soldiers and devoted followers of Kim Jong Il"
           This is a sledgehammer blow to those who want to derail Juche-orientated
socialism . It is a militant declaration that the DPRK will follow the road charted
by the great leaders generalissimo's Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il. Dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un has strongly upheld the continuity of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung's leadership and is leading the struggle to dye the whole of society with the monolithic ideological of Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism.
                               Some three years have passed since the publication of the work     "The Great Kim Il Sung Is the Eternal Leader of Our Party and Our People " during which its validity and correctness has been proved with each passing day. It certainly  charts the road ahead for the DPRK and Juche idea followers of the world. We highly commend the work and call for an intense study of it.

The Korean People's Army militant revolutionary anti-imperialist force of Songun !-special article by ASSPUK and JISGE leader Dermot Hudson

      London 25th of April Juche 104(2015)
April 25th is the anniversary of the foundation of the Korean People's Army . It was actually founded as the Anti-Japanese People's Guerrilla Army which then became the Korean People's Revolutionary Army in March 1934. The great leader President KIM IL SUNG who inherited the 2 pistols from his father keenly realised that Korea could not achieve independence simply by begging for it or by peaceful means so embarked on the road of armed struggle, the road of Songun saying " Weapons are our life and soul , oppose armed force with armed force "

Right from the start the Anti-Japanese People's Guerrrilla Army(AJPGA) of Korea was an anti-imperialist revolutionary armed force composed of the workers and peasants which fought for national liberation but also proletarian revolution.  As the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG said "Let us all raise higher the red banner of the revolution and launch a vigorous armed struggle against Japanese imperialism in order to win the historic cause of national liberation"
 The AJPGA was based firmly on the Juche Idea The AJPGA fought in the revolutionary  spirit of self-reliance. They either captured  weapons from the Japanese imperialists or made their own . Once some people had the hope then the then Soviet Union would supply them with a grenade factory but such a thing never materialised so instead the AJPGA partisans made their own grenades , the "Yanji bomb" or "Yongil bomb ". Nowadays the successor of the AJPGA the Korea People's Army has its own nuclear 'Yanji bomb'  made with 100% Korean resources and labour and ready to deter any imperialist aggression !
                                          The AJPGA was transformed into the Korean People's Revolutionary Army  in March 1934. Under the command of the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG , a gifted military strategist and ever-victorious iron-willed brilliant commander , the KPRA fought many battles against Japanese imperialism  including the famous battle of Pochonbo. The guerrillas of the KPRA were vastly outnumbered by the Japanese imperialists who also had huge supplies of military hardware and modern weapons but led but the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG they did not flinch or waver but fought in the spirit of militant anti-imperialism and the spirit of fighting the enemy without  compromise. The Juche theory on warfare teaches that the outcome of war is not decided merely by weapons alone but those who hold those weapons .

                     During the great victorious Fatherland Liberation the regular revolutionary armed force of the DPRK , the Korean People's Army (founded on the 8th of February 1948) fought against the US imperialists and their south Korean puppets and also troops from 15 satellite states of US imperialism such as the UK . By applying Juche-orientated tactics and Songun based tactics the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG led the KPA and Korean people to a great victory over US imperialism the first time that the US imperialists had been defeated.
After the Korean war the US imperialists continued their provocations against the DPRK but were smashed each time by the heroic KPA under the command of the great revolutionary leader generalissimo KIM IL SUNG. This included the "Pueblo" incident of 1968, the EC121 incident, the Panmunjom incident and others.
The great leader generalissimo KIM IL SUNG not only put forward the concept that the People's Army is the army of the working class,the army of the revolution and the army of the party but also that each soldier is a match for a hundred .The line of making the army a cadre army in which each member could carry out the duties of the next rank. The line of arming the whole people and fortifying the nation was also implemented. Of course the modern revisionists seized with fear of imperialism and obsessed with "peaceful co existence" got their lackey in the DPRK the anti party counter revolutionary factionalists to oppose the slogan " a match for a hundred" but the rank and file KPA soldiers responded by chiselling the slogan into a rock.
Self-reliant defence is one of the central pillars of the Juche ideology. The DPRK developed self- reliance in defence and was not dependent on other countries for its defence. The great leader comrade Kim Il Sung realised both through the experience of the anti- Japanese revolutionary struggle and the Fatherland Liberation War as well incidents outside the country such the Cuban missile crisis(in which the revisionist USSR betrayed the Cuban people by doing a deal with the US imperialists) that a country should only rely on itself for defence and not outsiders.
Great generalissimo KIM JONG IL, the son of partisans, continued splendidly the cause of Juche army building and developed the Songun revolution in depth . He began giving on the spot guidance to the KPA on the 25th August 1960 when he visited the Ryu Kyong Su Guard no 105 tank unit(the KPA tank unit that was first to liberate Seoul in June 1950) . He took a keen interest in military affairs and wrote a lot of works on military affairs. He became the supreme commander of the KPA in 1991.
The KPA grew even stronger under the leadership of Songun supreme commander comrade KIM JONG IL. The KPA faced down the US imperialists in the first and second 'nuclear crisis' .The US imperialists were also humbled in the 1994 'helicopter incident' in which a KPA soldier brought down a Yank helicopter with a single shot.
The KPA is a strong army,patient but but strong. The US imperialists and south Korean puppets ceaselessly carried out war provocations in 2010 .The KPA repeatedly warned them to desist. The foolish south Korean puppets ignored the warnings. Recklessly in November they carried out live fire exercises in the West Sea area and fired shells into the territory of the DPRK damaging houses. The KPA retaliated blasting Yongphyong Island. The puppets and the US imperialists blustered about retaliation etc but in reality could do nothing against the mighty KPA of Songun commanded by the great leader generalissimo KIM JONG IL and general KIM JONG UN .

Today the KPA inheriting the militant anti-imperialist revolutionary spirit of the 
anti-Japanese People's Guerrilla Army upholds the anti-US, anti-imperialist and proudly carries on its tanks and military hardware the slogan "Let Us Wipe 
out the US imperialist aggressors , the sworn enemy of the Korean people ". No other army in the world has such a militant anti-imperialist line  and indeed we see the spectacle in so many countries of selling-out and  betraying the revolution, of people embracing and grovelling to their enemies .  The KPA
commanded by the dear respected leader Marshal KIM JONG UN stands ready not only to deter US imperialist aggression but to reunify Korea . As dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN said "Counter a provocation with a prompt counterattack and a war of aggression with a great, just war for national reunification!' This is our principled stand and steadfast will."

Thus the Korean People's Army is the militant revolutionary anti-imperialist force of Songun. Glory to the KPA on its 83rd anniversary.
