Éirann- Cóiréis Dlúthpháirtíocht (Irish – Korean Solidarity)

Though there is of course a massive media build up against the DPRK and all Anti-Imperialist (Cuba, Iran, Venezuela, Zimbabwe, etc.) or anti-USA/ NATO Imperialist (Russia, China etc.) the DPRK stands of one the last real bastions against imperialism of any kind in the whole world and this need to be bore in mind by any anti-imperialist minded People.

Korea is an excellent example of a People driven to defiance and by the Parasitic Genocidal Imperialist Countries that sadly still plague our World and from whom the DPRK has achieved many Victories against and has helped others to also achieve victories against. They have helped ourselves in Ireland the 1960-90’s northern War, Angola, Vietnam, Cuba the emerging Socialist Country of Venezuela and more. That is to say they have helped so many Countries have simple peace at last!

Éire – Ireland has endured much hardship at the Hands of imperialists, particularly British Imperialists; Genocides, Refugee Crisis’s, near Complete at times Cultural Genocide, Partition, Deep division of our Peoples along Religious Lines , the remaining outright Occupation of the 6 North Eastern Counties in the Province of Ulster and the 26 Counties under neo-colonial Control by US, UK and EU Imperialist Countries.

The Korean People have undertook all these hardships, Yet in the face of Imperialist aggression the Korean people have stood fast in their love of their Countries freedom and more importantly their love of Socialism, the Only way the Oppressed majority of the world can achieve not only freedom of the Country but the freedom of its people to live decent life’s free from Capitalist Exploitation.

Connolly (Communist Leader of the Great 1916 Easter Rising) said that “Those whom speak so highly of Ireland but not her people mean nothing to me”. This shows the difference between Bourgeois and Proletarian Nationalism and struggle and Korea I feel shows exactly what can be done even in of the massive hardship brought to them by the Imperialist Powers to benefit the Working masses of people in an Oppressed Country. Korean has Universal Health care, Education, mass literacy, democracy, Independence and means to defeat said independence. All things most all in the Neo-Colonial world, even here in Ireland can only dream of.

Was it not correct for them to forge their own way against Imperialism? Was it not right for them to develop Satellite & Nuclear Technology (including Nuclear Missiles)? What was the Alternative? Syria which is the middle of Massive Civil war caused by the USA and it lackeys with their creation of ISIS, Massive Refugee Crisis (the worst since WW2 in Europe), Massive destruction of the Country in general and of course all this only to further tighten US Imperialist grip on the Middle East and among he other Anti-Imperialist Countries left? Or Libya where the biggest beacon of Hope for the African Peoples has been would out Again causing a Massive Refugee Crisis, the complete breakdown of the most Social progressive Government in the African Continent and the leader Gadhafi Anally raped with a knife by NATO puppets? The DPRK developed Nuclear Weapons and Satellite Technology in direct opposition to Imperialism and continues to strive for a Future for itself as a Socialist Country, through a massive blockade (not unlike Cuba) brought about by the USA and it’s puppets in the UN, that even stop relief coming for the Countries People as 10s of Thousands dye just because the USA cannot stand an independent and Socialist Country striving for its own destiny.

I hope Éire agus Cóiréis (Ireland and Korean) , especially with there being 100’s of Thousands in The Southern US puppet state protesting the Country literally being semi-ran by a Cult, (let alone how it is also ran semi-directly by the USA and it current president being the child of the US installed dictator) can come closer together and achieve more than has been done in the past and in these darks times its places like the DPRK that are lights of hope for the Oppressed People all over the world and as the old Irish Republican saying goes “Tis not the Strongest, but those that Endure that will Conquer”.

Fidel Castro: A Champion of the People

Today on November 26, 2016, we all heard of the passing away of Comrade Fidel Castro, former President of the Republic of Cuba and First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba. Since the victory of the Cuban revolution we have seen illiteracy been eradicated from Cuba. Raul Castro announced in a brief speech that: “The commander in chief of the Cuban revolution died at 22:29 [EST] this evening.” Under the leadership of Comrade Fidel Castro, Cuba have also developed a free universal healthcare system against all odds. Not only did it become unique where Cuba have researched and developed cures and medicines that no other country have, and that other countries want, but it is one of the best in the world. Progresses in areas such as healthcare, education and energy sustainability are now in world class, despite the US embargo. CIA have targeted Cuba in several smear campaigns against where they have tried to discredit the socialist government of Cuba and even went so far that between 1960 – 1965, it is estimated that they tried to assassinate Fidel Castro 638 times! As with most US ventures abroad, they failed though and a credible distrust is built towards the US.

As late as yesterday, Comrade Fidel Castro said that the time was approaching for a younger generation to take over, in his public farewell speech, and this morning he’s no longer with us. There’s no secret that the friendship between the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea(DPRK) and the Republic of Cuba flourished since the early days of revolution. DPRK have always been the most far-east outpost against US imperialism and Cuba have always been in the far-west. After Cuba was betrayed by the Soviet Union’s defeatism, President Castro turned to President Kim Il Sung as he knew he could trust him.

With an aggressive neighbour like the US, the Cuban people knew that another “Bay of Pigs” might occur at any time. President Castro communicated with his friend President Kim Il Sung :”We asked him if they could supply us with weapons free of charge as they had in the past. He responded that they would.”

“We then communicated to him: ‘Don’t worry. Send us the arms and we will take care of the invaders ourselves.”
Castro continued and credited Kim Il Sung: “a veteran and unimpeachable combatant, sent us 100,000 AK rifles and (ammunition) without charging a cent,” he said.

Even though our great comrade Fidel Castro have passed away, his achievements and unbroken solidarity with the oppressed peoples of the world will forever live on and the bond of friendship between the Korean- and Cuban people will live on forever.

How the Outcome of the US Presidential Election will Affect the DPRK

During the race for becoming US president, many people already knew Hillary Clinton, while many saw Donald Trump as a wildcard. Even before June 16, 2015, when Donald Trump announced that he would be running for president, lots of strange rumours have since been spread in the mainstream media. On June 2, 2015, Reuters posted that the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea(DPRK) praised Donald Trump on a so called “propaganda website, where they claimed that he was a “a prescient presidential candidate” who can liberate Americans living under daily fear of nuclear attack by the North, and that Hillary Clinton was referred to as “thick-headed Hillary” over her proposal to apply the Iran model of wide sanctions to resolve the nuclear weapons issue on the Korean peninsula. This has uncritically been paraphrased by Wester media, such as the Guardian for example. Only problem is that it’s not true. In fact it was written by the China-based Korean scholar Han Yong Muk for the site DPRK Today, which is a Chinese-based news site that supports the DPRK, but is in fact not a site run by the DPRK. This fabrication is the root to the belief that the DPRK supported Donald Trump.

There’s no secret about what Hillary Clinton would have done. The US Democratic administration have told the public that they are fighting terrorists such as the Islamic State. Of course there have been many of us who have always known that so is not the case, but that the US have provided training and logistics to them by using their puppets in the Middle East. Now we know for a fact that Hillary Clinton and the Democratic administration have sponsored the Islamic State and other terrorists in the region. Read more

There is no secret though that US have a long history of sponsoring terrorism. Some of the most notorious terrorist groups that most likely wouldn’t have existed without their US sponsors are the Contras in Nicaragua and the Afghani Talibans and Al Qaeda. These terrorist groups have all been sponsored by both Democratic- and Republican administrations. So what can the DPRK really except of Donald Trump as president?

Ri Jong Ryul, deputy-director general of the Institute of International Studies in Pyongyang, explained to the CNN in an interview in April of this year that Donald Trump is both absurd and illogical, and is having double standards on the nuclear weapons policy in East Asia, where Donald Trump have said that he wanted to withdraw US troops from south Korea and Japan and let them develop their own nuclear weapons while at the same time forbid the DPRK from developing nuclear weapons. Double standards is something that all previous US administrations have had when it comes to the DPRK. Donald Trump can say that he want to talk with Marshal Kim Jong Un how much he want, but it would all be in favour of his imperialist overlords. When Libya abandoned their nuclear programme they were attacked by islamist terrorists backed by US as well as bombed by NATO countries. It is understandable that President Bashar Al-Assad of Syria welcomed Donald Trump as president. Syria is already ruined by US backed terrorists and Hillary’s email where she wrote that “The best way to help Israel deal with Iran’s growing nuclear capability is to help the people of Syria overthrow the regime of Bashar Assad” says everything that she would for a fact not have been a favourable president. So for Bashar Al-Assad to welcome Trump as president, the candidate who haven’t threatened Syria is the only logical alternative of Clinton and Trump. Hillary Clinton expresses that she want to secure the security of the genocidal state at any cost. Read email

President Kim Il Sung meant that it doesn’t really matter who becomes the president in the US. It’s the imperialist system and the policy of aggression of the US, that matters. Neither Hillary Clinton nor Donald Trump won’t bring any difference in US policies. When Barrack Obama became president in the US, people thought that meant change. During the two terms he have served, the US have kept on bombing countries, just like the presidents before him. Institutionalised racism is still there and the police are getting away with killing unarmed black men and women. The US have been at war for 223 years out of a total of 240 since 1776, when the colonisers claimed the birth of the United States of America. The foundation and existence of the US is war. No matter who is the president, that individual will only be there to represent the interests of US imperialism.

The 16th KFA International Conference were successfully held in the Teachers Club in Dublin on November 5. Present there were members of the KFA from Ireland, Denmark, France, Italy, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and the USA.

Comrade Andreas Engström, the Official Delegate of KFA Ireland welcomed people to the meeting. He said that both Ireland and Korea had been divided by imperialism and therefore it was highly significant that this year’s KFA International Meeting were held here in Ireland. 2016 16th anniversary of the foundation of the KFA and also the important “one-hundred anniversary of the Easter Rising – 1916 was the year the Irish people rebelled against British imperialism.”

The speech continues: The Korean people are well aware of the hardships that their Irish brothers-in-arms have endured over the century as they have for a long time been fighting imperialism, long before the DPRK born.
So, until this day, both Ireland and Korea are divided at the hands of imperialism…”

The meeting was presided over by Trever Aritz, the international commissar of the Korean Friendship Association. KFA President comrade Alejandro Cao De Benos was unable to attend the meeting after his passport was retained by the Spanish fascist authorities, who decided that in the last minute he was not allowed to leave the country due to the fake charges fabricated against him. President had his speech read by comrade Trever Aritz, where Alejandro said that the recently established KFA office, KIM IL SUNG-KIM JONG IL library and Pyongyang Cafe in Tarragona, Spain had been a big success and that every KFA branch in the world should have one. A message from Pyongyang from the Korean Committee For Cultural Relations with Foreign Countries was read out. The message paid high tribute to the struggle of the Korean Friendship Association the only true friends of the DPRK.

Lots of good speeches were made and appreciated by the delegates from all countries. Below is a part of the speech made by the Official Delegate of KFA Poland:

“Dear Comrades and Friends,
I am really glad to see you all here and being able to participate in this important KFA Meeting. First of all, I wish to thank Comrade Andreas from KFA Ireland for organizing the meeting and inviting me.
My name is Lukasz Mrozek and I am an official delegate of the KFA in Poland. I’ve been a delegate of KFA almost four years. Poland is a country that has a long history of cooperation and friendship with the DPRK. Poland, the Soviet Union and China were the first three countries that recognized the DPRK in the international arena. Dear Comrade President Kim Il Sung visited Poland twice during his life.
When the U.S. imperialists provoked a war on the Korean Peninsula, Poland had strongly condemned this barbaric act of aggression and as the fraternal socialist assistance we sent doctors to the DPRK.
The Polish branch of the Korean Friendship Association is making permanent and tireless efforts to promote Polish-Korean friendship and solidarity with the Korean people. We are also showing to Poles the true face of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea…”

Comrade Dr. Dermot Hudson, Official Delegate of KFA UK, held another great speech were he said: “The legacy of the great generals of Mt Paektu is today’s People’s Korea led by dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un. During my 3 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 of September DPRK National Day and there was the successful test of the road launched ICBM…”

Martin Lotscher KFA Official Delegate for Switzerland and chairman of the Swiss Korea Committee addressed the meeting saying it was very important to mark the keynote anniversaries of the DPRK next year and that preparatory committees had been formed in many countries. The speaker paid high tribute to the work of the KFA saying that KFA is the only true defender of the DPRK.
Ulrich Larsen KFA Official Delegate for Denmark paid high tribute to the Juche idea of the great leaders President KIM IL SUNG and Chairman KIM JONG IL. Messages were also read out from KFA Arabia, KFA Singapore and KFA Argentina, as they were not able to be present this year.

On Sunday the 6th, KFA members met up for a walking tour of revolutionary sites of the time prior to the Easter Rising and until the Irish Civil War., organised by members of KFA Ireland. The conference was enjoyed by all present KFA members and everyone is looking forward to next year’s meeting that after an unanimous vote were decided to take place in Morocco.
