ASSPUK, JISGE and UK KFA support memorandum of the Democratic Front for the Reunification of Korea

ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF SONGUN POLITICS UK

London 1st of April  Juche 104(2015)
The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK), the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE) and the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA) today issued a joint statement in support of the memorandum issued by the Central Committee of the Democratic Front for the Reunification of Korea issued on the 31st of March;

The memorandum issued by the Central Committee of the Democratic Front for the Reunification of Korea very trenchantly exposes the real nature of the so-called US-south Korean "alliance ". Basically it is not an alliance or a partnership of any kind at all but a means for the US to dominate and control south Korea .

Since 1945 south Korea has effectively been a colony of US imperialism. A series of so-called agreements and treaties such as the The U.S.-south Korea "mutual defense treaty" give the US the right to permanently and indefinitely station US forces in south Korea. Later ,on July 9, 1966 the U.S. faked up the SOFA, giving the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces in south Korea privileged position rare to be found in the world.
    On the strength of the humiliating SOFA the U.S. imperialist aggressors have made no scruple of perpetrating murder, rape, plunder, destruction and all other crimes in south Korea. The US still holds the preorogative of wartime operational command over the south Korean armed forces , something unknown in other countries!

The US seized control of the south Korean economy in the 1960s by controlling the budget of south Korea.
Now the  so-called " south Korea-US  Free Trade Agreement " has deepening the economic infiltration of the US into south Korea and other proposals such as joining the "Trans-Pacific Partnership " will increase the control of US imperialism over south Korea.

Thus the so-called "alliance " with the US leaves south Korea totally bereft of sovereignty and independence  doomed to be the last colony of the 21st century. South Korea is an instrument of US war policy against the Democratic People's Republ

Our organisations believe that the south Korean people must fight to free themselves from the shackles of US imperialism and achieve reunification.

KCNA Commentary Discloses Extreme Misanthropy Prevailing in American Society

Pyongyang, April 1 (KCNA) -- In recent years the U.S. has committed ceaseless crimes against humanity such as throwing into prison innocent people without trials and torturing them under the pretext of "war on terrorism".
    The U.S. set up and operated secret prisons in nine countries including Afghanistan and Iraq and squandered 81 million U.S. dollars for setting up 47 torture facilities around the world and developing harsh torture techniques.
    The prison in the naval military base on Guantanamo bears witness to the modern-day concentration camp disclosing U.S. tortures.
    Hundreds of "terror suspects" now under detention there have been subject to harsh tortures and living-body tests and are forced to lead a life little short of life-time imprisonment without legal procedures and trials.
    A recent disclosure put it that a Saudi Arabian Briton has been imprisoned in the camp on Guantanamo for 13 years for no justifiable reason.
    He was arrested by false testimony in 2001 when he was conducting humanitarian aid activities in Afghanistan. He has served prison terms in the concentration camp since 2002 and a verdict of not guilty was delivered on him twice afterwards but he has not yet been freed.
    His lawyer disclosed that during his imprisonment he has been subject more than 300 times to such tortures as "depriving captives of sleep for a week", "standing for a long time in an ill-balanced position", "having his head immersed in ice-cold water" and "having his head beaten against the wall".
    Russian citizen Mingazov has also led a 10-year prison life without judgment there.
    The U.S. and the West have taken lives of great many people in many parts of the world for the mere reason that they have different race and religious belief.
    The Turkish newspaper Turkey on February 11 reported 153 anti-Islam attack cases have occurred for just a month in the U.S. and the West.
    According to CCIF headquartered in Paris, anti-Islamic attack cases numbered 764 in 2014, 10 percent increase over that in the previous year.
    Serious racial discriminations deeply rooted in the American society have found their manifestations in various fabrics of social life.
    The USA Today said the unemployment rate of the white was 9.5 percent while that of the black 34.5 percent in October 2009.
    Investigation data of the FBI on Nov. 23, 2009 put it that a total of 7 783 racist crimes were committed in 2008.
    On February 10 this year three young Muslims were shot to death on a university campus in North Carolina and on March 6 a defense-less black young man met a death by a while police in Wisconsin State.
    In Fergusson City the police and judicial authorities have taken unfair and racist steps against African Americans in traffic interception, use of state power and detention. Among those who had been intercepted by traffic police in the period from 2012 to 2014, the black held 85 percent twice as many as the white offenders.
    Mississippi already infamous for lots of cases of the black men being hung from trees became a spotlight again for another similar case recently.
    CNN on March 13, reporting the results of the opinion poll, said in May 2009 only 6 percent of respondents noted that racial conflicts deepened after Obama took office but the figure increased to 39 percent in February 2015.
    All facts prove that bitterness and hostility toward heretics, Muslims, in particular, prevail in the American society and all things Islamic have become target of persecution and suppression.
    Unending racial discriminations are an inevitable result of extreme misanthropy endemic to the U.S. -0-

ASSPUK, JISGE and UK KFA denounce sale of helicopters to south Korea

   ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF SONGUN POLITICS UK

http://www.uk-songun.com/index.php email juche007@yahoo.co.uk
          London 1st of April Juche 104(2015)
 The Association For the Study of Songun Poltics UK , the Juche Idea Study Group  of England and The UK Korean Friendship Association strongly denounces the sale of attack helicopters to south Korea by Airbus Helicopters , a EU commercial entity(apparently a joint French-German outfit) .
 
 Huge quantities of latest war hardware have been deployed in south Korea. Among them are U-2, Patriot 3, Longbow AH-64D copters, ATACMS Block 2 and ATACMS Block 1A, M1-A1 tanks, U-2 S Block 20, F-117 stealth fighter bombers.
    The U.S. has stockpiled 600 000 tons of war supplies and stored 3 million of depleted uranium shells in such U.S. air force bases as those in Osan, Suwon and Chongju of south Korea in particular.

The sale of attack helicopters to south Korea is a hostile act against the DPRK and will further increase tension on the Korean peninsula. It goes to show that the EU is not acting as a force for peace. The giant EU capitalist monopolies just want to make huge profits by fuelling the arms race in south Korea and propping up the fascist puppet regime of south Korea . Also the European arms
monopolies are co-operating with US imperialism's aggression on the Korean peninsula.

DFRK Exposes True Colors of U.S.-S. Korea Alliance

 Pyongyang, March 31 (KCNA) -- The Central Committee of the Democratic Front for the Reunification of Korea (DFRK) Tuesday released a memorandum showing the history and true colors of the U.S.-south Korea alliance as regards the fact that the south Korean puppet regime has gotten more hell-bent on sycophancy and treachery, confrontation with the fellow countrymen and anti-DPRK war moves while crying out for strengthened alliance with the U.S.
    Terming the U.S.-south Korea alliance a master-servant tie-up, an inequitable alliance based on subjugation and submission and a war alliance for carrying out the U.S. policy of aggression, the memorandum said:
    The U.S. imperialists landed in south Korea on September 8, 1945 to replace the Japanese imperialist aggressors defeated in the Second World War and then proclaimed their military administration, enforcing the colonial government-general rule through it.
    They staged the ruinous "separate elections" in May of 1948 and set up the Syngman Rhee puppet regime in August that year.
    After the emergence of the puppet regime, various "agreements" and "treaties" were concluded under the coercion and wire-pulling of the U.S., and they all were no more than nooses to colonialize south Korea as a whole in political, economic and military aspects.
    On August 24, 1948, the U.S. egged traitor Syngman Rhee on to sign the "status of forces agreement on tentative military affair and security in transitional period" in a bid to justify its military occupation system.
    Under this "agreement" the U.S. offered the puppet army huge munitions enough to arm tens of thousands of troops, many weapons seized from the defeated Japanese imperialists and U.S.-made warplanes and warships so as to make preparations for an aggression on the northern half of Korea.
    The U.S., which ignited the Korean War on June 25, 1950, cooked up an "agreement on jurisdiction over the U.S. forces in south Korea" in July to put the prerogative of the puppet army, including the right to command operation, under its control.
    Due to this "agreement" the south Korean puppet army was enrolled into the "UN forces" and the commander of the "UN forces" exercised full command over the puppet army.
    The U.S.-south Korea "mutual defense treaty" was officially signed in Washington on October 1, 1953. The "treaty" in its article 4 calls for conferring on the U.S. the right to deploy its three services in any part of south Korea. The article 6 stipulates the "treaty" as "indefinitely valid" so as to "justify" the U.S. forces' permanent presence in south Korea.
    The "treaty" is the worst unequal and shackling one, quite different from similar treaties the U.S. concluded with other countries, as it gives no restriction to the U.S. in reducing south Korea to its military bases, allowing its military presence for an indefinite period.
    The U.S. fabricated the U.S.-south Korea "agreed minutes", a supplementary agreement of the "mutual defense treaty", in November of 1954 and reaffirmed its permanent presence in south Korea.
    The U.S.-south Korea alliance has recorded the history of aggression, war, plunder and subjugation for the last seven decades since the U.S. imperialist aggressors' occupation of south Korea.
    After issuing the "joint statement" of the puppet regime and the "UN Command" in May, 1961, the U.S. stepped up the preparations for war of aggression against the DPRK by continuing to seize the right to command operations of the commander of the "UN forces" over the puppet army, investing a huge amount of funds for beefing up armed forces for aggression and intensifying war drills.
    On the strength of the alliance, the U.S. imperialists hurled troops of the south Korean puppet army, colonial mercenaries, as cannon fodder into shambles of wars of aggression, large and small, ignited by them in different parts of the world.
    On July 9, 1966 the U.S. faked up the SOFA, giving the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces in south Korea privileged position rare to be found in the world.
    On the strength of the humiliating SOFA the U.S. imperialist aggressors have made no scruple of perpetrating murder, rape, plunder, destruction and all other crimes in south Korea.
    In December, 1994 the U.S. staged a farce of transferring the peacetime operation control to the puppet forces but it was a crafty artifice to quell the people's anti-American sentiment and desire for independence and calm down the criticism at home and abroad of the U.S. military presence in south Korea and colonial domination over it.
    It declared transfer of OPECON in April, 2012 but installed a pro-U.S. conservative regime, instigating it to repeatedly extend the transfer.
    Through deceptive "aid" it strengthened the system of neo-colonialist domination over south Korean economy.
    In the mid-1960s the U.S. put the bulk of financial budget and banking funds of south Korea under its control and monopolized 70-80 percent of supply of raw materials and 80 percent of trade.
    The U.S. forced south Korea open its market, deepening economic infiltration into the latter and its dependence on the former.
    It cooked up the humiliating FTA, putting south Korea deep into colonial yoke.
    The south Korean puppet conservative group is making last-ditch efforts to prolong its despicable remaining days in reliance on the alliance with the U.S.
    What the present puppet regime has done so far since it came to power was the acts of making south Korea increasingly dependent on the U.S., crying out for tightened alliance with the U.S., and the ones of putting the inter-Korean relations into the worst catastrophe through cooperation in confrontation with the DPRK and moves to invade it.
    No matter how loudly the puppet group may advertise the U.S.-south Korea alliance, regarding it as its lifeline and kowtowing to the U.S., the U.S. considers the puppet forces as nothing but a colonial servant.
    As long as there exists the U.S.-south Korea alliance, the south Korean people can never free a miserable fate, the danger of a war can hardly be defused on the Korean peninsula and it is hard to expect either peace or the reunification of the country.
    The U.S.-south Korea alliance, shame on the nation and obstacle to peace and reunification, should be dissolved without delay, the memorandum demanded. -0

Comment on the DPRK and AIIB -alleged application to join

Firstly, it is not 100% clear  that the DPRK really applied to join in the first place as it refused to join the revisionist led CMEA bloc in the late 1950s and has not joined the Shanghai Co Operation Organisation as far I know . Possibly the DPRK might have asked for observer status or associate nembership rather than full membership. If the report is true and the PRC has refused to let the DPRK join it is no great loss to the DPRK as it is self-reliant and self sufficient . It looks the AIIB is becoming another capitalist concern as the PRC is allowing imperialist countries to join it. Tough if some countries  cannot accept the DPRK's economic independence and self-reliance ! The DPRK can go its own way !

President KIM IL SUNG Creator of Juche-based socialism

                                                                
                                                      
 

 President KIM IL SUNG the eternal President of the Democratic People's Republic , great leader of the Korean people and Sun of Juche was the creator of Juche-based socialism in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea . The achievements made by the DPRK in building socialism is associated with the august name of the great leader President KIM IL SUNG. Juche-based socialism in the DPRK is the most durable socialism in the world and is the legacy bequeathed by the great leader President KIM IL SUNG to the present and future generations
                                                             

The great leader President KIM IL SUNG always firmly believed and asserted that the new Korea liberated from Japanese imperialism would not be a copy of any other country nor be a puppet of anyone but would be based on the interests of the Korean people alone. At the time some advocated that "Amercian style democracy " should be set up in the newly liberated country whereas others claimed Soviet style socialism should be built . Factionalists clamoured for either a bourgeois republic or at the other extreme immediately setting up the dictatorship of the proletariat. President KIM IL SUNG instead maintained  that liberated Korea must not revive feudalism or establish the bourgeois system; nor must it take the road of socialism immediately, as some people argued. He explained that Korea, then at the stage of the anti-imperialist, anti-feudal democratic revolution, must take the road of pro­gressive democracy, and that the state to be established in the liberated homeland must be an independent and sovereign democratic state. The tasks of the anti-imperialist,anti-feudal democratic revolution such as land reform were carried out at a fast speed and within the space of two years the anti-imperialist,anti-feudal democratic revolution had been completed. President KIM IL SUNG put forward the programme of founding a Democratic People's Republic and on the 9th of September 1948 this was founded by the will of the entire Korean people north and south .
                                             

                  President KIM IL SUNG early on put forward the line of building an independent national
economy , an application of the Juche Idea in the economic field. At the time the DPRK was the only socialist country to advocate such a line. Later the Soviet big power chauvinists tried to insist that the DPRK join the Council For Mutual Economic Assistance but President KIM IL SUNG rejected this as it would mean shackling the DPRK economically to the revisionist Soviet Union. It would have meant the DPRK would not have heavy industry or advance science and technology. Today the DPRK is one of the few countries in the world that its genuinely economically independent as it does not belong to the IMF or World or World Trade Organisation . This is something that followers of the Juche Idea and the world progressive people can take real great pride in.
                   Once the USSR proposed to supply electricity to the DPRK but President KIM IL SUNG declined this saying that if they disagreed with Khruschov or Brezhnev then the USSR would cut the power off and leave the DPRK in darkness.
President KIM IL SUNG applying the Juche Idea to socialist construction rejected dogmas and fixed formulas . For example some dogmatists opposed the collectivisation of agriculture on the grounds that the DPRK lacked mechanization and Korea was divided . However President KIM IL SUNG smashed the arguments of these factionalists and dogmatists . Juche -based Korean style collectivisation of agriculture  was carried out and completed by 1958 . Around the same time the socialist transformation of private trade and industry.
                  President KIM IL SUNG fought hard to prevent the DPRK from falling under the control of 
big powers as well as the US imperialists. In August 1956 he defeated the anti-party counter-revolutionary
factional group that was backed by big powers and planned to sell out People's Korea to the imperialists just as the revisionists had sold out other socialist countries to imperialism. Earlier in December 1955 he had made the historic speech "On eliminating dogmatism and formalism and establishing Juche in ideological work" in which he said "What is Juche in our Party's ideological work? What are we doing? We are not engaged in any other country's revolution, but precisely in the Korean revolution. This, the Korean revolution, constitutes Juche in the ideological work of our Party. Therefore, all ideological work must be subordinated to the interests of the Korean revolution."
                     


            President KIM IL SUNG made sure that the DPRK avoided both Right and Left deviations in building socialism. The Rightist deviation in some socialist countries became very marked in the late 1950s and early 1960s when modern revisionism appeared . The Right deviation consisted of abandoning the dictatorship of the proletariat and neglecting the struggle against class enemies and also trying to build socialism by capitalist methods. The result was complete disaster and failure !. The Left deviation consisted of dogmatism  and attempting to build socialism without any material incentives and sloganising , this produced the so-called "cultural revolution" and the "Year Zero". President KIM IL SUNG put forward unique and original Juche-based lines and theories on socialist construction such as on agriculture , industrial management as well on the dictatorship of the proletariat and the transition period from capitalism to socialism. 
Juche-based socialism under the guidance of the great leader President KIM IL SUNG was able to perform true miracles , in fact the famous Cambridge eeconomist Professor Joan V Robinson visited the DPRK and said it was the Korean miracle. The annual rate of growth of industrial production in the ten postwar years from 1954 to 1963 averaged 34.8 per cent. Between 1957 and 1970 industrial output value grew up by 19.1 per cent annually . The DPRK became industrialised by 1970 and was able to produce 94.3% of  its machinery needs at home, one of the highest rates of self-sufficiency in the world. President
KIM IL SUNG made sure that the fruits of Juche-based socialist construction were enjoyed by the popular masses; education and health care were given free of charge , generous benefits paid to the working people and in 1974 .
Juche-based socialism of People's Korea was and is the creation of the great leader President 
KIM IL SUNG  a true master of theory and practice . Today the work he started is carried forward by 
dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN who is building a people's paradise.

CPRK Secretariat Warns of Resolute Action against Anti-DPRK "Human Rights" Campaign

 Pyongyang, March 31 (KCNA) -- The south Korean puppet regime again joined the U.S. in adopting the anti-DPRK "human rights resolution" at the 28th session of the UN Human Rights Council together with its allies, a "resolution" aimed to hurt the dignity and social system of the DPRK. Such behavior is now enraging all Koreans.
    Announcing that south Korea "co-sponsored" the "resolution", the puppet regime stated that it hails the adoption of the "resolution" and "expects the UN Security Council to play a sustainable and positive role over the north's human rights issue". It went the lengths of demanding the "implementation of recommended provisions."
    Besides, the regime disclosed its scheme to set up a UN "office for human rights in the north" in Seoul soon and intensify the international anti-DPRK "human rights" campaign.
    In this regard the Secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea (CPRK) issued its information bulletin No. 1088 on Mar. 30, which said:
    It is the foulest anti-national crime that could be committed only by the group of heinous traitors keen on confrontation with fellow countrymen, and this is another unpardonable grave provocation and blatant challenge to the dignity and social system of the DPRK.
    The "resolution", railroaded by the U.S. and its followers through the UN Human Rights Council recently, is a heinous politically-motivated fraudulent document for aggression intended to hurt the dignity and prestige of the DPRK and topple its social system.
    It is the height of impudence for the south Korean puppet regime to pull up the DPRK over its "human rights" performance.
    What should be taken issue at present is the worst human rights situation in south Korea, a colony of the U.S.
    It is the reality of south Korea that those protesting against the U.S. war drills for invasion of the DPRK and praising their fellow countrymen and calling for national harmony and reunification become a target of harsh suppression, after being branded as "terrorist" and "forces following the north".
    As the spies of its Intelligence Service confessed recently after being arrested in the DPRK, the south Korean puppet regime has made no scruple of committing terrorism to hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK and bring down its social system under the manipulation of the U.S. Therefore, its call for "human rights improvement" is an intolerable insult and mockery of the DPRK.
    The DPRK will never tolerate the U.S. and south Korea's reckless anti-DPRK "human rights" campaign aimed to hurt the dignity of the DPRK and bring down its social system but take a staunch action against them.
    In particular, now that the puppet regime seeks to set up a UN "office for human rights in the north", a plot-breeding body, in Seoul so as to turn south Korea into an international hotbed of crimes against the DPRK, it will never overlook this attempt and such office will be the first target of its merciless punishment and strike immediately the office is set up in south Korea. -0-
