THE AINDF ADVANCES

 

40 years have elapsed since the AINDF was founded as the Revolutionary Party for Reunification (RPR) on August 25 1969, the period of tribulations.

The RPR (August 1969 – July 1985) was renamed to the National Democratic Front of South Korea (the NDFSK; July 1985 – March 2005) and to the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front (since March 2005) of today.

Though there were manifold ordeals and hardships on the road, it successfully surmounted the gale of the “Yusin” dictatorship in the 1970s and the frenzied whirlwind of anti-communism in the 1980-90s, and now is struggling for anti-US independent reunification in an excited era of the second millennium.

During those days, the AINDF has been undauntedly waging the heroic struggle for independence, democratization of the south Korean society and the national reunification with the high honor of holding in high esteem great President

Kim Il Sung and perspicacious Marshal Kim Jong Il, great men of the century and suns of the nation, as the illustrious leaders and taking the Juche idea, the guiding ideal of the times as the vertical rudder.

 

 

Holding in high esteem the great men of the century

 

Comrade Kim Jong-tae, pacemaker of the foundation of the RPR in the 1960s, venerated great President Kim Il Sung with the highest appellation of an “unparalleled hero”.

The fervent Kimilsungist fighters including comrade Kim Jong-tae strove day and night to arm themselves with the revolutionary history of President Kim Il Sung, his ideas and theories, and laid the adamant cornerstone for founding the RPR.

The members of the RPR organizations devoted all their efforts to the ideological solidifying of the party on the basis of the immortal Juche idea.

The AINDF members with the strong conviction of the victory of the reunification revolution thanks to the prominent leader, the founder of the great Juche idea, did not only arm themselves with the ideas and feats of great President Kim Il Sung and perspicacious Marshal Kim Jong Il but also inculcated the philosophy of Juche upon the people from different social standings including workers, peasants, intellectuals, youth and students, religious men and patriotic soldiers, rallying them into a main force of the revolution.

Crystal clear is the loyalty of the NDFSK members to their leaders and the leaders’ ideas.

Those are our AINDF martyrs who died a heroic death throwing themselves from the interrogating room on the 8th floor, shouting “Long live comrade Kim Il Sung!”, “Long live comrade Kim Jong Il!” and “Long live the Juche idea!” after their unfortunate arrest by the enemies.

By the influence of the AINDF in south Korea, innumerable patriotic people of all walks of life have grown up into the adherents of the Juche idea, formed many organizations and are energetically advancing for independence, democracy and reunification.

According to data of a security organ, the adherents of the Juche idea in south Korea today amounted to nearly 4.3 million, i.e. more than 10% of the population.

They have great pride to be adherents of the Juche idea and strong men in faith.

It’s worth introducing a part of an interview conducted by the magazine “Mal” in May 2002 with the chairman of the Baekdu Youth Society, an organization of the adherents of the Juche idea (carried on its June issue).

“Question: What does the Juche idea mean for you, and what is the motive for you to be a Jucheist?”

“Answer: The Juche idea is the guideline of our activities and our political life.

We got engaged in the national democratic movement through realizing the fact that the half of our country is still under the US subordination and in result the people are undergoing indescribable sufferings.

In general, a movement with a correct aim and means and methods to achieve it, can emerge victorious.

The Juche idea illuminated the scientific aim, means and methods for our national democratic movement.

The national democratic movement will establish an independent democratic government and realize the independent and peaceful reunification true to the Juche idea by ideologically awakening all people and uniting them in a great national democratic front.

The motive for us to be the Jucheists is that the Juche idea is just the scientific truth which leads our national democratic movement to victory.”

The patriotic people from different social strata are convinced that as President Kim Il Sung and his Juche idea liberated the nation from Japanese imperialism, Kim Jong Il, chairman of the National Defence Commission and the Juche idea will rescue our nation from US imperialism and realize the reunification”.

In 2002, major 10 newspapers and 15 magazines in south Korea carried 430-odd photos of President Kim Il Sung and Marshal

Kim Jong Il and some 1,000 articles on them.

Today in south Korea the worship of the people for the great man of the century and his ideas is very high. In 2002 10 major newspapers and 15 magazines carried some 430 photos of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il and over 1000 write-ups, and in 2007 200-odd photos of them were carried in the major newspapers and magazines and as many as 11,640 write-ups in newspapers and internet homepages.

It is a fact enough to show the high extent of the south Korean people's worship towards the great men of the century and their ideas today.

The south Korean people claim that “just Kim Jong Il, chairman of the NDC, is the leading center that integrates the strategy of Songun revolution and the June 15 joint declaration, the Songun politics and the ideal of <By our nation itself>”, and revere him as the leader of all the nation and the lodestar of the reunification.

Today the south Korean media are openly publishing some 10,000 articles annually on average to introduce the might and vitality of the Songun politics under the titles such as “The US dashes down with the passing of days by dint of the Songun politics of the north”, “Songun drives the pro-US conservative forces into a tight corner” and “Songun dynamically propels the movement of national reunification, the cherished desire of our nation”.

The progressive youth and students pledged to be fervent fighters of the 2000s and faithful comrades who follow the leadership of Marshal

Kim Jong Il and share with him the intention and destiny, and are more dynamically conducting the struggle for anti-US independence and reunification under the slogans “Let us arouse the Killin wind (a revolutionary wind aroused by President Kim Il Sung in the period of his early revolutionary activities in the 1920s)!”, “Let us give priority to propagandizing the greatness of three generals of Mt. Baekdu (President Kim Il Sung, Marshal Kim Jong Il and comrade Kim Jong Suk)!”, “Let us work with the revolutionary spirit of Baekdu and in the style of the anti-Japanese guerillas!”, “Let us become the proud sons and daughters of the Kim Il Sung nation and Kim Jong Il Korea!”.

Clear is the victory of the south Korean people who are vigorously fighting upholding the great sun and great idea.

 

 

Pioneering the course of independence, democracy and reunification

 

AINDF's mark was figured by a torch.

The torch-stand emblematizes the immortal Juche idea, the guideline of the AINDF and the three red crescents above it symbolize the three objects of independence, democracy and reunification.

It is a declaration all over the world that our AINDF is a revolutionary party of Juche, militant vanguard of the people which is pioneering the course of independence, democracy and reunification following the immortal Juche idea, the anti-imperialist independence ideal, whatever trials and tribulations may come.

Our AINDF is reliably assuming its role as the vanguard of the south Korean people.

A young adherent of the Juche idea once said:

“The NDFSK is the leading organization of the south Korean revolution.

We trust in and follow the NDFSK as the patriotic vanguard of the south Korean people.

Establishing an independent and democratic government and reunifying the country in a federal way constitute the NDFSK's platform, and independence, democracy and reunification are its banner.

However, different mass organizations and united front organizations, even the Democratic Labor Party adopt them as their political goal and guideline today.

All policies and appeals of the NDFSK become actualized at once as verified in the large-scale anti-Bush rally in February 2002.

This is why we call the NDFSK the leading organization.” (Quoted in “Mal”, Aug. 2002)

During the past more than 30 years, the south Korea people have vigorously waged the democratization struggle, focusing on the anti-“Yusin” and anti-military dictatorship struggles, the anti-US struggle in the 1980s in particular, and persistently struggled for the national reunification, our nation’s earnest wish.

As the result of the resolute struggle of the AINDF and the south Korean people, Park Chung-hee, chieftain of the “Yusin” dictatorship was assassinated, military dictator Chun Doo-hwan was forced to step down and go into exile in the Temple Baekdam and Kim Young-sam, notorious traitor to the nation, faced a disgraceful end.

At the outset of the first century of the new millennium our people could greet the June 15 joint declaration thanks to Marshal

Kim Jong Il, lodestar of the reunification.

95.7% of the south Korean people support the declaration, which was praised by the south Korean movement circles as the fruition of the Juche idea and the Songun politics.

The position and attitude toward the declaration form a touchstone distinguishing independence from subordination, patriotism from treachery, reunification from division.

Our AINDF appreciated the June 15 joint declaration as a landmark of the national reunification, which most correctly reflects the aspiration and desire of the 70-million fellow countrymen, expressed full support and approval to it and earnestly called on everyone to rise up in the sacred and patriotic struggle to realize it.

The south Korean people who keenly felt that the US is the main stumbling block on the way of realizing the great cause of independence and reunification by our nation itself as clarified in the joint declaration, are opening the “era of popularizing the anti-US movement”.

More than 90% of the south Korean people dislike the US and nearly 80% demand the withdrawal of the US troops from south Korea.

On the contrary, the national cooperation between the south and the north is a main mind-set of the south Korean people.

According to a public opinion census, 93.9% of the respondents claimed that they could accept the northern compatriots as their neighbors and this shows how ardent the south Korean people's compatriotism and consciousness of the national cooperation are.

The ardent love for the nation and the burning desire of the reunification of the south-north joint cheering teams, displayed in the world sports games in Busan in 2002 and in Daegu in 2003, demonstrated throughout the world that any villainous divisionist force cannot dampen the nation’s will to realize the June 15 joint declaration.

Our AINDF, loyal to the spirit of the June 15 joint declaration, took an important initiative to discontinue the broadcast of the “Voice of National Salvation” from August 1, 2003.

It was for the purpose to contribute even a bit to accelerating the process of the inter-Korean reconciliation, unity and reunification by stopping the mutual slandering propaganda.

In regard to this important patriotic decision by the AINDF, the Solidarity to Realize the South-North Joint Declaration published a statement to express its thanks and welcome indicating that it expected that the measure would be a new development for the improvement of the inter-Korean relations and further promote the process of our nation’s reconciliation, unity and reunification.

The south Korean people are unanimously opposing and rejecting the US war moves against north Korea, resisting the hard-line policy of the US neo-conservatives against the north, true to the spirit of independence of the June 15 joint declaration and positively supporting and defending the Songun politics of the north as a “politics for the nation and its defense”.

In the 2000s there appeared a great number of movement organizations for independence and reunification against the foreign forces keeping pace with the June 15 reunification era of “By Our Nation Itself”, and the mass movement of the people from all walks of life against the US and Japan is developing into a new high level.

Anti-imperialist independence is the only way out for our people whose independence has been infringed upon for 100 years; 60 years of the US occupation in the wake of 40 years of the Japanese colonial rule.

Only under the banner of anti-imperialist independence, independence, peace, democracy and reunification would be firmly guaranteed.

The Presidium of the NDFSK Central Committee held in March 2005 took the important measure to rename the NDFSK to the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front (AINDF) in accordance with the aspiration of the times and the people.

The AINDF has more vigorously fought along with the people for defending the independence and peace of the nation and accelerating the independent reunification upholding the banner of anti-imperialist independence.

The south Korean conservative daily “Dong-A ilbo”, noted on February 9 2007 that 3,009 articles, 4 times more than usual, were carried in a month to undisguisedly criticize the south Korean conservative organizations and the US. Most of them were copied to the south Korean websites from the homepage “KugukJonson” of the AINDF known as the vanguard of the south Korean reunification.

The south Korean people's movement for peace against the US and war has been dynamically staged under the banner of anti-imperialist anti-US struggle thus pushing the US and the pro-US Lee Myung-bak conservatives forces to a predicament.

In 2008 the south Korean people's of different social standings conducted incessantly the peace movement against the US and war including the struggles to expel the US troops from south Korea, restore the US military bases, foil the south Korea-US war drills for invading the north, conclude a peace agreement between the DPRK and the US, against the import of American beef, the agreement of sharing the expenses of “defense costs” and Bush’s trip to south Korea.

According to south Korean publications the struggles conducted by the people of various strata from January to November numbered some 13,400 cases in all, the participants were 6.64 million and the organizations involved were 110,000.

Very near is the day when the US troops are forced to withdraw from the Korean Peninsula and the south and the north are reunified by the immense strength of the great unity of the entire nation, achieved under the banner of anti-imperialist anti-US struggle.

The members of our NDFSK satisfactorily enjoy the pride of being the vanguard fighters before the remarkable successes made in pioneering the course of independence, democracy and reunification.

 

 

Bathed in the unlimited support and trust of the people

 

The people's support and trust are the source of the strength for the AINDF.

The patriotic people from different social standings cherish a steady confidence in the AINDF and warmly express their support and trust to it despite the wicked obstacles laid by the US, the incarnation of evil, and the south Korean ultra rightwing conservatives.

The youth and students in particular, call the AINDF's members with respect and trust as devoted fighters and members of a vanguard organization.

Recently a schoolgirl in Incheon earnestly asked in her e-mail to the AINDF saying “let many esteemed members of the AINDF and our people drive out the evil US troops and reunify the country at an early date in firm solidarity”.

The ideal and principles of the Juche idea held fast to by the AINDF since its foundation and the just and patriotic struggle it has vigorously waged win the active support and solidarity not only from the different patriotic people in south Korea but also from the world progressives and the AINDF's prestige improves day by day.

The AINDF has relations with some 100 political parties and organizations over the world and formed new ties with anti-imperialist organizations in the US and Spain in 2003 only.

The Anti-imperialist Solidarity in US sent a congratulatory message to the AINDF on its 34th foundation day expressing warm revolutionary solidarity.

It read:

“We cannot say enough what an honor it is to have you as our comrades.

Together we can defeat and destroy US imperialism, the common enemy of us all.

We know and revere the AINDF as our true comrades and brethren.

Comrades of the National Democratic Front of South Korea, in the spirit of Comrade Kim Il Sung, we wish you still further victories and hope to strengthen even greater our fraternal ties.”

Our AINDF will wage more dynamic anti-US anti-war struggle together with the patriotic people of all walks of life and the world progressive mankind and bring about a new progress and bigger victory in the struggle to realize independence of south Korea and the national reunification, holding higher the banner of the June 15 joint declaration under the brilliant beams of the Songun politics of Marshal Kim Jong Il, the unparalleled hero.

The AINDF advances.

Manifesto for National Independence of south Korea

 

Our National Democratic Front of South Korea, a defender of the rights and interests of the south Korean people, announces this manifesto on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the national liberation out of a sense of the mission to achieve the true liberation as soon as possible, reflecting the volition of the people to put an end to the position of a cursed ruined country and greet a new turn of a great national leap.

Our manifesto for national independence of south Korea is an outcry of the people for true sovereignty.

The direction of the south Korean people today is to liberate the nation.

The cause of the national liberation is an indispensable demand arisen from the colonial structure of the south Korean society.

South Korea is a perfect colony of the US and a modern version of the past Manchuguo.

The sovereignty in south Korea rests with the US, not with the south Koreans and south Korea is governed by the White House, not Cheong Wa Dae.

The flunkeyist US worship, treacherous anti-communist ethos and the American and Japanese way of life are prevailing south Korea in institutional and legal terms.

Under their evil influences, spirit of the national independence is trampled underfoot, disunity and enmity within the nation are encouraged, national culture gets deformed and the nation itself is being Americanized.

Under the US colonial rule our people are not only physically slaughtered but also forced to have their territory and blood vessel divided.

Our people have been undergoing immeasurable national misfortunes and dreadful calamities owing to the national division by the US.

However, the division of the country grows wider to perpetuation with every passing day.

The permanent division of the country would lead to the ruin of the nation.

This is, indeed, a terrible tragedy of the people in colonial south Korea.

To accomplish the cause of national liberation in south Korea destitute of the sovereignty is the inalienable right and duty no force can violate.

The banner our people should uphold today in the national liberation movement is anti-US independence.

Anti-US independence is the real way to terminate the colonial subordination and recover the usurped territory and national sovereignty and a shortcut to democracy and reunification.

Our national liberation struggle for anti-US independence is a showdown between the invaders and the invaded and a decisive battle between the patriots and traitors.

The major target of this struggle is the US imperialist aggressors to whom the spearhead should be directed.

The US imperialists are the ringleaders of aggression and oppression and sworn enemies who have historically imposed calamities and misfortunes upon our nation.

A handful of south Korean flunkeyist traitors are also a target of the struggle for anti-US independence, who, as well as the US imperialists, must be eliminated.

Comprador capitalists, reactionary bureaucrats and pro-American elements in south Korea are guiding foreign forces into this country and are traitors who sell out the sovereignty of the country.

The motive force of the anti-US struggle for independence in colonial south Korea is the broad masses aspiring after national sovereignty, namely workers, peasants, students, small and medium businessmen, intellectuals, patriotic soldiers and religious men.

The working class is the decisive force for the victory of the anti-US struggle for independence, the peasants are a reliable ally of the working class and the students are the main force making breakthrough in the van of the struggle.

The NDFSK led by the immortal Juche idea not only represents the south Korean people's aspiration and will, but also is their patriotic vanguard organization.

The struggle of anti-fascist democracy and the national reunification are the historic task which the NDFSK and the patriotic people should accomplish in the national liberation struggle for anti-US independence.

Democratization of the society and the national reunification can be achieved through the anti-US struggle for independence and the cause of independence is promoted by the anti-fascist struggle and the reunification movement.

The master key to the victory of the national liberation struggle against the US imperialists and their stooges is to strengthen the main forces of the nation.

The indestructible main forces are prepared and fostered by awakening and organizing the masses and in the process of mass struggles.

When the masses are awakened to national and political consciousness and emerge on the arena of history in order to shape their own destiny, no force on earth can defeat them.

Unity is the source of the strength of the nation’s main forces.

For the purpose of integrating the nation’s will and organizing people's forces efficiently in south Korea, we should form an extensive national united front which embraces all patriotic forces-political parties and groupings and people of all strata.

Today when the anti-US struggle for independence is a historic requirement of the nation, the attitude toward the US is the only yardstick distinguishing patriotism from treachery.

Anti-US attitude is patriotic and pro-US attitude is treacherous.

The situation urges everyone to transcend the bounds of political groups and parties for the sake of the country and take the way to anti-US independence.

Our NDFSK calls on all south Koreans to join the national united front and resolutely take part in the anti-US national salvation movement for independence of south Korea, irrespective of whether they are nationalists or communists, whether they are believers or unbelievers, whether they live at home or abroad and whether they have committed crimes against the country or not.

Those who have strength can contribute with strength: those who have knowledge with knowledge: and those who have money with money.

The anti-US struggle for independence has already started and the situation is developing in favor of our people.

Now that the day of a drastic battle to restore the national sovereignty is approaching, our people have no room to retreat.

National liberation is the most urgent task of history which brooks no delay.

If we withdraw from this national liberation struggle, we shall never be able to free ourselves from the bitter fate of colonial slavery.

If we fail to overcome this crisis, we shall lose even the homogeneity of the nation and our beautiful three thousand-ri country.

Onlooking leads to death and hesitation to ruin.

Ours is an era of Jajusong when the people, once oppressed and maltreated, are steering history.

Dominators’ rule is giving way to independent government throughout the world.

Oppressed nations are achieving independence and becoming masters of their own destiny.

At this crucial moment all south Koreans who love the country and nation and want independence should join the great anti-US struggle for national liberation.

We present the following immediate program and will struggle to carry it out in a bid to accomplish the cause of the national independence.

1. to establish a national independent government.…

2. to realize a democratic policy.…

3. to build a national independent economy.…

4. to stabilize the people's living.…

5. to develop a national education.…

6. to build a national culture.…

7. to establish a sound ethos.…

8. to build up independent national defense.…

9. to pursue an independent diplomacy.…

10. to achieve the independent and peaceful reunification of the country.…

Our national liberation cause is just and the anti-US struggle for independence, running with the current of the times, is sure to be won.

Pro-US flunkeyism or anti-US independence, we will fight for independence against the US and win the victory without fail.

Long live the cause of anti-US independence!

Long live the national liberation cause!

Declaration for Democratization of South Korea

 

The democratic movement in south Korea has entered a new turning phase with the presidential election approaching.

The publication of the June 15 South-North Joint Declaration two years ago was not only a great national event that opened a new horizon for the country’s reunification, but also a landmark that made a breakthrough of democracy in south Korea.

With the adoption of the declaration, the upstream current of division began to turn to a large stream toward reunification despite the resistance of the conservative forces. 

The era is over when the government monopolized the debate on the reunification problem. Participating in contacts, exchanges and travel with north Korea are not only government officials and businessmen but all sections of the people including workers, farmers, youth and students, women, scholars, men of the press, artistes, athletes and religionists. 

The public mood of anti-US independence, anti-conservatism and national unity grows high among all strata of the society. Suppression of the public call for independence and democracy of the south Korean society and reunification of the nation is facing a spiraling public protest. 

The reality shows that the movement for democracy has entered a new high stage in south Korea with the adoption of the inter-Korean joint declaration.

It is a precious foundation for democratic development of the south Korean society.

However, the fascist legal structure and repressive system, legacies of the past despotism, have yet to be cleaned away and autonomous democratic organizations are not legalized. 

Especially, there appears a symptom of revival of dictatorship. 

The situation requires democratizing the socio-political life on a higher stage on the basis of the already-won successes. 

The National Democratic Front of South Korea announces this declaration in order to purposefully promote the south Korean movement for democracy in conformity with the requirement of the situation.

Democracy of the socio-political life is ensured by a democratic government for the nation and people. 

All civilian governments are not democratic ones.

A democratic government true to its name is a government for the nation and people which rejects outsiders’ intervention, aspires after national independence and respects the will and interests of the people.

For the establishment of a democratic government serving the nation and people, it is imperative to take a correct option in the upcoming presidential election.

The election will be an opportunity to select a democratic government for the people or an old conservative politics.

All people should take part in the election to vote against the candidate of the Grand National Party seeking to restore the old fascist system, and win victory of the true democratic political forces, the clean-handed independent national forces free from flunkeyism, corruption and military despotism.

All youth and students sensitive to the new, justice and patriotism should participate in the presidential election to lead all people to the struggle to defeat the GNP candidate.

The socio-political life can be democratized only after destroying all the anti-democratic legal and institutional mechanisms.

It is an anachronistic, anti-democratic and anti-reunification act to preserve the pre-modern legal and institutional apparatuses barring democratic development of the society in this scientific and civilized age and to maintain the laws and system of the Cold War era that cause confrontation within the nation in this reunification era. 

All the anti-democratic laws including the National Security Law and the Public Custody Law detrimental to democratic development of the society and better relations between south and north Korea, all the intelligence and repressive bodies and the ideological conversion system should be abolished completely. 

The essence of democratization of the socio-political life is to secure the freedom of association and activities of patriotic and progressive political parties and organizations.

It is a universal right of the people allowed in all countries of the world to form political parties and organizations and conduct their activities according to their ideologies, isms and political views.

Association and activities of progressive parties and organizations and all other sorts of political parties and organizations representing broad public opinion including the advocacy of anti-Americanism and reunification with north Korea should be legalized. 

The NDFSK is a vanguard detachment carrying out the south Korean people’s demand and a patriotic party serving the people. 

Struggle should be activated to achieve legitimacy and free activities of the NDFSK, the vanguard party of the south Korean people. 

The south headquarters of the National Alliance for the Country’s Reunification and the South Korean Federation of University Student Councils should be legalized and free activities of all progressive parties and organizations representing the people’s opinion be ensured. 

Freedom of thought, expression and conscience and personal liberty are the inviolable fundamental rights of the people and major symbol of a democratic society.

It is an anachronistic suppression of ideology to force people to believe in liberal democracy only.

Freedom should be secured to study, believe in and disseminate the immortal Juche idea, the acme of progressive ideologies of the world.

The freedom of the press, publication, association, demonstration and conscience and personal liberty should be realized.

A ceaseless struggle should be waged to wipe out the legal and social rules violating the people’s fundamental rights and eradicate surveillance, shadowing, wiretapping, illegal arrest, torture, intimidation and terrorism.

Inspection, police search and arrest of those struggling for independence, democracy and reunification should be discontinued and a dynamic struggle should be unfolded for the release, pardon and reinstatement of all the illegally arrested political prisoners, prisoners of conscience and north Korea visitors in order to build a society of justice in which patriotism judges treachery.

The struggle for independence, democracy and reunification can emerge victorious when it is waged in organic unification.

Apart from anti-US independence, democratization of the socio-political life cannot be realized in colonial south Korea.

As far as the United States intervenes in the internal affairs of south Korea, it is not easy either to realize democratic elections reflecting the people’s intention or to promote inter-Korean exchange and cooperation independently with the concerted efforts of the nation.

In order to build an independent and democratic society, foreign forces’ domination and intervention should be rejected and a government embodying the Juche character and national character be established.

We should ensure freedom of the anti-US movement for independence and regain the jurisdiction over GI criminals and prerogative of military command.

We should rise up in a nationwide struggle to oppose the payment of expenses for the maintenance of the US troops and south Korea-US joint war exercises and expel the US forces, bases and nukes from south Korea.

For the present, we should foil the US hard-line policy toward north Korea aimed at checking the improvement of inter-Korean relations and isolating and stifling north Korea. We should also struggle for the realization of Pyongyang’s proposal for concluding a north Korea-US non-aggression treaty to prevent a nuclear war ruinous to the nation, and secure peace.

Without freedom of the reunification movement, social democracy cannot be realized.

For the democratization of the society the June 15 South-North Joint Declaration should be defended and implemented.

The joint declaration, milestone of independent reunification, is a program of reunification common to the nation, the implementation of which will bring about democracy and independence of the south Korean society.

The attitude toward the declaration is a touchstone distinguishing patriotism from treachery, democracy from anti-democracy and reunification from anti-reunification.

We should resolutely oppose all the anti-reunification acts hampering the implementation of the declaration and support the candidate with a will to support, adhere to and carry out the declaration in the forthcoming presidential election.

What is most important in realizing democracy of the socio-political life is the unity of the national democratic forces.

Unity of the national democratic forces is the fundamental of the democratic movement.

The standard for national unity is the stand and attitude toward the June 15 joint declaration. All those who support the declaration should join hands altogether on the principle of disregarding the past. In all struggles from the struggle for the right to existence to the struggle for establishing a national democratic government, the political parties, organizations and people of all strata should firmly unite and all regions and sectors should realize solidarity to take joint steps and actions.

Victory of the democracy movement lies in its popularization.

People in every walk of life are the driving force of the national democratic movement.

The national democratic activists should advance realistic slogans of struggle acceptable to the people, free themselves from the mode of radical and unforeseen struggle and adopt a mode of struggle which can win sympathy and participation of the people.

  Our democracy movement is a part of the movement for global independence and democracy and forms a common front with it.

Strengthening solidarity with international democratic organizations will help expand the support to the south Korean democracy movement and intensify the international isolation and pressure on the anti-democratic forces of south Korea.

We should positively inform the international community of the justness and situation of the south Korean democracy movement and the anti-democratic forces’ unfair suppression and strengthen organizational unity and solidarity with international democratic organizations.

The NDFSK Central Committee believes that this declaration will be an encouraging banner in opening the way for a new upsurge of the democracy movement and powerfully accelerating the anti-US movement for independence and national reunification.

Our democracy movement will emerge victorious without fail as it is a sacred struggle of patriotism and justice conforming to the call of the times and people.

Let us advance all together for the democratization of the south Korean society!

Juche 50 (1961)

9.11: Great leader Comrade Kim Il Sung, sun of the nation, set forth a programmatic guideline to found a vanguard party of the people in the historic speech made at the 4th Congress of the Workers’ Party of Korea.

This year the entire people should wage vigorous struggle to oppose the US colonial occupation policy and its interference in the internal affairs of south Korea, withdraw the US troops from this land and check its brigandish pressure and aggressive nuclear war moves against north Korea and its demand to send additional troops of south Korea to Iraq.

Now when the desperate nuclear war moves of the US against north Korea reached an extreme to drive the entire fellow countrymen into a nuclear disaster, the people from all social strata should support and safeguard in every way the Songun politics, the dignity, fortune and destiny of the nation. In particular, they should actively support the just peace-loving and reunification-oriented stand of the north in connection with the six-party talks to solve the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula and oppose the US hostile policy towards north Korea.

The 17th general elections this year will be an important occasion to judge whether the genuine political reform and democratization process would be promoted or fascism be revived in this land.

They should check the desperate moves of the pro-US traitorous forces for a general offensive through unity of rightist conservatives with united and organized struggle of the entire people and hold the general elections without the Grand National Party, the party of thieves, Mafia and fascists, through a struggle to disband it.

In order to realize democracy in this land they should totally abolish the fascist laws such as the NSL and dissolve the intriguing intelligence institutions that are still mobilized as tools of oppressing the pro-reunification democratic forces.

They should sternly frustrate the oppressive moves of the ultra-rightist conservatives against the pro-reunification patriotic organizations including the South Korean Federation of University Student Councils and the South Headquarters of the National Alliance for the Country’s Reunification and realize the legalization of their activities.
