2nd of December Juche 105(2016)
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 statement in support of the statement issued by the National Peace Committee of Korea of the DPRK on Friday 2nd of December :
It has recently been revealed that the agreement on protecting military intelligence was concluded between the south Korena puppet fascist regime and the Japanese reactionaries under the backstage manipulation and pressure of the U.S..
This is peharps not a big surprise as the decision to deploy THAAD by the south Korean puppets was made under the pressure of the US imperialists even though neighbouring countries that the south Korean puppets were trying to curry favour with were adamantly opposed to THAAD.
It is very clear that the US imperialists are trying to build a triangular military alliance against the DPRK and also against Russia and China. This proves that the main threat to peace in Asia and the world comes from the US imperialists.
We support the demand of the National Peace Committee of Korea of the DPRK for the US to abandon its anarchonistic and reactionary anti-DPRK policy .We believe that the agreement on protecting military intelligence should be scrapped.

A SINGLE protester outside the Russian embassy or a handful of Arab stooges at a peace rally makes headlines in our national press. A north Korean diplomat defects to the south Korean regime in London and its national news for weeks on end. A few thousand anti-Trump protesters on the streets in the United States hits the headlines all over the western world.
But when over a million south Koreans take to the streets to denounce their corrupt, puppet president and call for her resignation it barely gets a mention in the august pages of the bourgeois media.
Last weekend over a million demonstrators took to the streets of Seoul, the capital of south Korea, to demand that puppet president Park Guen Hye stands down.
Members of the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions (KCTU), student groups and religious bodies gathered at Seoul Square to hold the 2016 people’s all-out rally. Some 150,000 KCTU members along with students from one hundred universities and people from all walks of life turned out for the protest, the biggest since 1987, and marched to the presidential palace to demand Park Guen Hye’s resignation.
Workers are downing tools throughout the country, which has been occupied by US imperialism since 1945, whilst the KCTU prepares for a general strike to demand Park’s resignation and the release of their leader, jailed for five years on trumped-up charges last year.
Park Guen Hye, the daughter of the former dictator who was shot by a member of his own faction in 1979, heads the reactionary and rabidly anti-communist Saenuri Party that does the bidding of US imperialism. The down-trodden south Korean masses, doubly oppressed by their local exploiters as well as those from the US, are sick to death of this corrupt regime led by Park, a venal politician involved with a shadowy religious cult leader who used her influence over the president to embezzle public funds.
Whilst all of this is going on the masses in the democratic north of the divided Korean peninsula are rallying to the latest call of the Workers Party of Korea to sharpen their defences against imperialism and continue to build socialism in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK).
The DPRK was branded by the American imperialists as part of the “axis of evil”, and one of the “outposts of tyranny” that include Cuba, Syria and Iran, and was topped by Iraq until that country was invaded by US-led imperialism in 2003. The US army and its south Korean puppets rehearse the invasion of the north in annual war-games and the south Koreans have developed a cruise missile of their own targeted on the DPRK.
In the face of these renewed threats the DPRK has had no alternative but to develop a nuclear deterrent to defend its socialist system. At the same time it has pledged that it will never be the first to use nuclear weapons — and it has also vowed never to threaten the use of nuclear weapons nor allow the transfer of nuclear technology to other countries.
Whilst corrupt south Korean politicians grovel to the Americans for their share of the loot the masses in Democratic Korea, with Kim Jong Un at the helm, are relentlessly advancing into the future to build socialism and fulfil the dream of all Koreans, the peaceful re-unification of the country.

NEW COMMUNIST Party leader Andy Brooks and other comrades joined demonstrators outside the Ministry of Defence in London last week to protest at the deployment of the RAF in south Korea. The picket, opposite Downing Street, was called by the Korean Friendship Association (KFA) to protest against the participation of British armed forces in war exercises currently taking place in south Korea.
KFA Chair Dermot Hudson said: “We are shocked and outraged by the decision of the British government to send four Eurofighter Typhoon combat jets, Voyager tanker aircraft and C-17 Globemaster transport aircraft to take part in the so-called ‘Invincible Shield’ military exercises of the US imperialists and south Korean puppets against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
“This is just disgraceful. The DPRK poses no military threat to Britain. There is absolutely no need for Britain to become involved in the Korean peninsula. According to official British military statistics 1,000 British soldiers died in Korea during the 1950-53 Fatherland Liberation War. Of course the real numbers are probably much higher than that. But there was no reason for even one British soldier to die in Korea, or indeed, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Yugoslavia or northern Ireland.
“It was a war that Britain should have kept out. Now the Government plans to send fighter planes and other aircraft to join anti-DPRK war exercises. There is every danger of a second Korean War that British forces will be dragged into, only this time the casualty rate would be much higher. Britain should stay out of Korea and not repeat the shameful history of the Korean War!”

Korean solidarity in Dublin
By New Worker correspondent
Dermot Hudson speaking
FOUR MEMBERS of the British Korean Friendship Association (KFA) went to Ireland to attend the 16th KFA International Meeting in Dublin last weekend. The meeting, at the Teachers Club in Parnell Square, was attended by KFA officials and delegates from Europe and the United States.
Andreas Engstrom, the head of KFA Ireland, opened the conference and pointed out that as both Ireland and Korea had been victims of imperialism it was highly significant that that this KFA International Meeting was being held here in Ireland.
The President of the Korean Friendship Association Alejandro Cao De Benos was unable to attend due to the fascistic action of the reactionary Spanish authorities who, at the last minute, refused to let him leave the country. But Alejandro sent a message saying how much the KFA had grown over the past 16 years since the first KFA International meeting in London.
Dermot Hudson, the chair of the UK KFA spoke of the deeds of great leader Kim Il Sung and his successors, Kim Jong Il and Kim Jong Un – the “great generals of Mount Paektu” who led the Workers Party of Korea in building socialism in the northern part of the divided Korean peninsula.
“During my three recent visits in October 2015, April 2016 and September 2016 I saw the reality of Korean-style socialism for myself and the great advances that are being made in all fields, such as the impressive construction of Ryomyong Street. I was proud to be in the DPRK in September when the nuclear warhead was successfully tested on the 9th September DPRK National Day and there was the successful test of the road-launched ICBM.
“The UK KFA will conduct vigorous activities in 2017 to honour the great generals of Mount Paektu. We believe that this a vital task when the pressure and sanctions of the US imperialists and their lackey states becomes more intense, solidarity with People's Korea becomes the order of the day and celebrating the keynote anniversaries of the DPRK assumes a greater significance. We believe it is conducive to defending the DPRK against imperialist attacks."

outside the south Korean embassy

Korean solidarity activists were out on the streets of London last week demonstrating outside the US and the south Korean embassies to protest at the latest war moves of US imperialism and their south Korean puppets. NCP leader Andy Brooks and other comrades joined the pickets called by the Korean Friendship Association on 20th October at a time of increasing tension on the Korean peninsula.
The protest started at 15:00 outside the south Korean embassy in Westminster and then moved on to the hub of US imperialism in Grosvenor Square to continue the action until 18:20.
