The meeting was attended by Dr Vishwanath dirctor general of the International Institute of the Juche Idea and members of his family . Also a lecturer in economics at London University was in attendance. The meeting was attended by members of the ASSPUK and JISGE and others .
Chairman of the JISGE said in his opening remarks that
” The DPRK was founded on the 9th of September 1948 by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung as a pure manifestation of the will of the entire Korean people north and south. The DPRK is the only legitimate state in Korea as it was founded by the will of the Korean people. The DPRK is the fruit of the anti-Japanese armed struggle led by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung. Under the leadership of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung the Korean people solved the question of power the most pressing question in the revolution . The foundation of the DPRK was a powerful inspiration to the peoples of Asia and the oppressed countries of the world in their struggle for independence and national liberation. It was a great inspiration to the international proletariat advancing towards socialism.”
Dr Vishwanath director general of the IIJI then addressed the meeting . He said that he
started studying the DPRK and the Juche in 1968 and visited it the DPRK for the first time in 1974. Since then he had actively being involved in studying and promoting the Juche
idea . He praised the role of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung in liberating the Korean
people from Japanese imperialism . Vishwanath said that the great leader President
Kim Il Sung was the greatest of great men . The DPRK is able to provide a good life
to everyone including jobs and food. This is a result of the Juche Idea . Dr Vishwanath
said that the Juche idea costs nothing to study but pays in plenty. He said that the
Juche idea needs to be promoted more vigorously in the UK . He stressed that next
year is the 100th anniversary of the birth of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung. Many
great events will be organised to mark this occasion including a World Juche Conference
in Pyongyang , UK Juche idea followers must organise a delegation to this important
The lecturer from the University of London made a presentation entitled ” Tasks of Social Scientists In the
Study and Propagation of the Juche Idea in England ” . He said that “the central task of
Juche social scientists in this country is to bring home to their colleagues the fact that
the supreme achievement of progressive thought in our time has not come , as much
currently dominant dogma might suggest, from within currents of thought , developed
within the countries of developed capitalism but from within the anti-imperialist struggle
for independence” , He said ,furthermore , that “Songun politics , the politics of
building on and further developing the military-first character of the activities of Kim Il Sung
since his early days . This enabled the Korean people, united around their leader
Kim Jong Il, to defy the crisis ridden imperialist system without flinching and has
provided an inspiration to the peoples of the whole world”. The speaker referred to his
earlier paper “The Juche Idea a unique and original revolutionary ideology”
Chairman of the JISGE read out a presentation on the work “Let Us Accomplish the
Cause of Socialism and Communism Under the Revolutionary Banner of the Juche Idea”
He said “The revolutionary spirit of self-reliance was the weapon to overcome the age old backwardness. The source of the DPRK’s great victories in socialist construction was
that the people were united with one ideology . Taking pause to reflect on this I
pointed out to some people that the recent riots in the UK could not happen in the
DPRK because of people being united with one ideology.
President Kim Il Sung elucidates on the superior nature of the socialist system in
Our people are now enjoying fully independent and creative lives in the embrace of the Republic, as masters of the state and society.
In our country all the people exercise their full rights to independence through their active participation in the political life of the state. They are adding lustre to their worthwhile lives through their creative struggle to achieve the high aim set by the Party, helping and leading each other forward, closely united on the basis of revolutionary constancy and comradeship. All the material and cultural needs, such as food, clothing, and housing, are met by the state, which also provides them with secure jobs according to their abilities. They are leading equally happy lives, receiving the benefits of free education, free medical care and so on from the state and society
The above passage I think sums up the advantages of socialism in the DPRK . It is
not just a question of material security, though of course , this is very important
in itself , but they the people of the DPRK live in a united society and there is
comradeship. Moreover they are the masters of society………
The work “LET US ACCOMPLISH THE CAUSE OF SOCIALISM AND COMMUNISM UNDER THE REVOLUTIONARY BANNER OF JUCHE” is a highly valuable work that deserves to be studied today as it gives answers to questions arising in the building of socialism and time has proved its validity..
The secretary general of the JISGE introduced the work “For the Development of the Non Aligned Movement” presented by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung 25 years on 20th June 1986. Comrade Pickford said that during the 1980s the national liberation movement was making great victories even though the US imperialists and their stooges the Israeli Zionists and South African racists had tried to stifle it. President Kim Il Sung had said in the work that “The anti-imperialist struggle must be instensified continously ” and that when “colonialism and racism have been eliminated from the globe neither imperialist North America nor imperialist Western Europe will cease to exist”. The
speake stressed that the DPRK had given great aid to the NAM and the national liberation struggle.
A message to the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il was adopted . The
meeting concluded at 6.55pm and refreshments were served.
