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.

16th KFA International Conference Successfully Held in Dublin

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.

The Importance of International Solidarity: DPRK and the Struggle Against Apartheid

The friendship between the popular masses of Korea and many other oppressed countries were shaped and wielded together through their common struggle to fight imperialism and goal to build socialism. They also share a common history of oppressive colonial rule. Just as the Korean people fought its oppressors of Imperial Japan, so did also for one example, the Zimbabwean people fight the successor colonial state of Rhodesia, previously the British colony known as Southern Rhodesia. As in many African countries, the Korean People’s Army fought alongside anti-colonial fighters and training was also provided to the armed wing of the Zimbabwe African National Union (ZANU) – the Zimbabwean African National Liberation Army (ZANLA). ZANU (merged with Zimbabwe African People’s Union in 1987 and formed ZANU-PF) were demonised by racists such as Margaret Tatcher and David Cameron, for the very same reason that Nelson Mandela and the African National Congress were demonised by the very same people. What the racists feared were democratic African states, governed by the indigenous people and an abolishment of the apartheid regimes who governed. When the imperialists supported the apartheid regimes of South Africa, South-West Africa (now Namibia) and Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) the progressive forces sided with the struggling people. President Kim Il Sung, who many struggling peoples of the third world recognised as a champion of socialism and national liberation, had his arms open to those who needed his assistance. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) might be a small country, but President Kim Il Sung’s Korea was always open to those who needed support. By the time the peoples who suffered under apartheid regimes defeated the racist governments, there hadn’t been one single victorious national liberation movement who did never enjoyed the support of the DPRK.

DPRK’s support started as early as the 1960’s when the wars of national liberation started. Many fighters of the different national liberation armies travelled to the DPRK to receive training by the Korean People’s Army, and throughout the wars, they enjoyed unlimited support in different fields of the comrades in the DPRK. On the other hand, imperialist powers such as the United States, Britain and of course the apartheid state Israel, supported the racist regimes. The friendship have since the liberation and defeat of apartheid grown even deeper between the DPRK and the African countries who have suffered under apartheid. Sam Nujoma, the first president of Namibia, as well as his successors, have enjoyed great relationships with the DPRK. Comrade Kim Yong Nam, President of the Presidium of the Supreme People’s Assembly, visited Namibia in 2008 and signed several agreements to strengthen the bilateral co-operation in fields such as trade, commerce, transport, energy and defence. President Sam Nujoma was awarded the Order of the National Flag (First Class) and the International Kim Il Sung Prize. The Order of the National Flag is only awarded to longstanding friends of the DPRK, and the International Kim Il Sung Prize is only awarded to those who have contributed in the study and dissemination of the Juche idea.

Ever since the defeat of the apartheid regimes, the vicious imperialists have tried to make their comeback through proxy groups. As they managed to sneak back into South Africa and viciously brought back apartheid in practice, so have the imperialists and reactionaries tried for a long time to bring back apartheid in Zimbabwe. Since the defeat of the colonial forces, the US and Britain have been in so called “negotiations” with the government of Zimbabwe to compensate the people for the land that was forcibly stolen. As the imperialists weren’t interested in providing any compensation, the government of Zimbabwe decided to introduce the land reform, where the land was redistributed to the people and farm workers. The land reform were introduced in the 2000’s – two decades after the liberation. Just as the DPRK, Zimbabwe is also a target of sanctions and military threats by the imperialists. Trigger happy Tony Blair who wholeheartedly backed the US invasion of Iraq was also considering to invade Zimbabwe in order to bring down the revolutionary government of ZANU-PF and President Robert Mugabe. Since a military intervention was ruled out, US and Britain have started their own creation in order to try to bring down the popular government of Zimbabwe in the form of the so called “Movement For Democratic Change” (MDC). MDC whose aim was to portray itself as a social democratic, all inclusive, non-tribalistic foundations, was soon exposed for what it really was – a group whose goal was to cause ethnic tensions and it lost the confident they tried to build with the trade unionists and academics. Now it is nothing without the financial support it receives from the imperialists.

Earlier this year the Namibian government has confirmed that DPRK’s state-run construction company, Mansudae Overseas Projects, built an arms and ammunition factory in the Namibian capital of Windhoek that was completed in 2005, and is in the process of executing other contracts for the construction of the country’s first military academy, military barracks and a new headquarters for the Ministry of Defense (MoD). The US have tried hard to put pressure on the Namibian government to have them severe the ties with the DPRK, but as the Deputy Prime Minister of Namibia, Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah, said: DPRK and Namibia have a long history of military cooperation, which dates back to the struggle for independence.

namibia-kim-yong-nam-675x368

Deputy Prime Minister (Namibia), Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah meet with President of the Presidium of the Supreme People’s Assembly (DPRK).

No matter how hard the imperialists are trying to blackmail and threaten Namibia to end its longstanding friendship with the DPRK, they won’t succeed. Maybe it would have been different if the US would have shown that they were a friend of the anti-colonial fighters and not one of the apartheid governments who oppressed the Namibian people. Those who have suffered under imperialism knows very well that the US are no friend of them.

The Police Killing of Baek Nam Gi

This story have its beginning in last years massive demonstrations against the government of Park Geun Hye. The marches, organized by labour, civic and farmers’ groups, brought together protesters from all walks of life, against the government of conservative President Park Geun Hye, including her capitalist-friendly anti-workers policies and a decision to require middle and high schools to use only state-issued and history revisionist textbooks starting in 2017.

Han Sang Gyun who were one of the main organisers of the protests were sentenced to five years in prison. South Korean riot squad attacked protesters with water cannons and tear gas. Many times the water cannons were used against single protestors, among them were Baek Nam Gi. On Saturday November 14th, 2015, Mr. Baek were rushed to the hospital. After 10 months in a coma as a result of head injuries suffered after being hit by water cannon, he passed away on Sunday, 25 September, 2016.

Over the past ten months as he lay in hospital, Baek Nam Gi’s family has been trying all possible avenues to seek accountability. They filed a criminal case against seven officers involved in the killing, and brought a separate lawsuit against the state demanding compensation. The National Police Agency of south Korea conducted an internal investigation but did not release findings. To date, the south Korean authorities have accepted no responsibility for the incident, and not a single police officer involved in the incident has faced any charges for the killing.

Baek Nam Gi was expelled from school twice for protesting the rule of the current president Park Geun Hye father – military dictator Park Chung Hee. He was expelled from university in Seoul in 1971 for leading a demonstration against Park’s deployment of troops on college campuses to harass student activists. He was later allowed to re-enroll but was soon on the run from the police for organizing protests against Park’s constitutional revision aimed at extending his presidency.

Picture shows Park Chung Hee in Imperial Japanese Army uniform in 1944. Park is the father of the current south Korean puppet ruler Park Geun Hye and was the fascist military dictator of south Korea from 1961 to 1979 (when his own side shot him)

The same family of fascists that have a long tradition of banning opposition and in 1975, simultaneously as Mr. Baek was expelled, fascist dictator Park Chung Hee, issued a directive to police and local officials to “purify” the streets of undesirables. Police officers, assisted by shop owners, rounded up panhandlers, small-time street merchants selling gum and trinkets, disabled, orphans and other poor children dissidents, including a college student who’d been holding anti-government leaflets. Those who by the fascist regime considered as undesirables where taken to concentrations camps, that first in recent years has been revealed. Tens of thousands of people have died fighting the repressive puppet governments of south Korea. This is not the first time that the south Korean government should be held accountable for its crimes against its own citizens, and won’t be the last. In 1980, Mr. Baek was expelled a third time and sentenced to two years in prison for his activities.

Mr. Baek was born in 1947 in Boseong County in a rural community. Unlike former student activists who entered politics and became national figures in south Korea, Mr. Baek devoted himself to fighting for the rights of poor rural farmers. Outside the room that held Baek’s casket in Seoul National University Hospital over 500 people gathered to mourn, the same day as they found out that Mr. Baek passed away. Yoo Young-hoon, 64, said, “This is a very sad day. We think that the government should investigate the exact cause of Baek’s death and should apologize sincerely.”

Yoo had known Mr. Baek since 1987, through their work with the Korean Catholic Farmers Movement. He said he will fondly remember Baek as a kind man. “He was someone who sacrificed, who fought for our country’s democratization,” Yoo said.

The struggling people of south Korea will always carry the spirit of Mr. Baek. The south Korean authorities have caused the Baek family and friends great harm and distress, taking away a husband and father of two daughters and one son.

baek

Dear comrade. We will never forget you, how you unselfishly dedicated your life to fight for the rights of the poor and oppressed. You fought against a powerful enemy for decades. When the oppressors couldn’t get you to fall to your knees, they went so far as they did on September 25, and took your life.

May you rest in peace.

Obama’s Last Speech to the UN – a Glorification of US-Imperialism

It is of course not surprising that a president of the United States glorifies imperialism, but when listening to what he is saying, compared to what the US is doing, can’t be dismissed as nothing else but hypocrisy. Obama begins to talk about how the US have taken away terrorist safe havens, strengthened the nonproliferation regime, resolved the Iranian nuclear issue through diplomacy. He even goes as far as by talking about how the US have “opened relations with Cuba” and “helped Colombia end Latin America’s longest war”. Nonproliferation is something Obama chooses to talk about just few days after that was revealed that Colin Powell wrote by email last year that “The boys in Tehran know Israel has 200, all targeted on Tehran, and we have thousands”, referring to nuclear missiles. The US have indeed opened up relations with Cuba, and would even allow US banks to operate in Cuba. The history between Cuba and the US is a long one, where the US have trained terrorists to carry out attacks against Cuba. Terrorist attacks against Cuba have cost 3478 lives and have left 2099 permanently disabled. The US have chosen to establish relations with Cuba just to get what they want, what they never managed to achieve through terrorism and financial warfare. Obama did nonetheless extend the embargo against Cuba by signing the Trading With the Enemy Act. So Cuba is still considered an enemy. When it comes to the revolutionary war in Colombia, of course the US would like to end it. The US is aware of that FARC and ELN would never be defeated by the reactionary government of Colombia nor the US imperialist forces in the country. On the other hand, see how the US is directly responsible for sectarian civil wars in Libya, Iraq and Syria, where they didn’t agree with their governments policies. It’s not that strange that the US wanted to bring peace to their puppet state in Latin America.

Another statement in his speech, a false claim where of that US assistance is helping people “feed themselves, care for the sick, power communities across Africa, and promote models of development rather than dependence”, is completely nonsense. The US imperialists will not provide help to anyone for free. The imperialists will always suppress African nations who is struggling for independence. When Muammar Gaddafi posed a serious threat to the imperialist world order’s dominance over Africa, with the idea of an African currency based on gold and independent from the US Dollar, it led to his death and the destruction of Libya. Where is this “development, rather than dependence” Obama speaks of?

He continues “I believe that as imperfect as they are, the principles of open markets and accountable governance, of democracy and human rights and international law that we have forged remain the firmest foundation for human progress in this century”. This comes from the same man that under his leadership developed The Disposition Matrix, informally known as a kill list, where the US have the right to render, torture and even kill suspected enemies of the United States government, without trial. The Disposition Matrix even goes beyond existing kill lists and is intended to become a permanent fixture of US policies. Remember when Obama first became president and promised to close the camp in Guantanamo Bay. As we know, it never happened, and it will never happen, as it serves the interests of US imperialism. We all know by now how the US authorities imprison black men and women, killing unarmed black men and women and still let the murderers within the racist police force get away. Poverty can’t be separated from the principles of open markets. To have a US-president speaking about human rights is like having a pedophile speaking about children’s rights.

Obama is later contradicting himself by saying the following: In developing countries, labor organizations have often been suppressed, and the growth of the middle class has been held back by corruption and underinvestment. Mercantilist policies pursued by governments with export-driven models threaten to undermine the consensus that underpins global trade. And meanwhile, global capital is too often unaccountable — nearly $8 trillion stashed away in tax havens, a shadow banking system that grows beyond the reach of effective oversight.A world in which one percent of humanity controls as much wealth as the other 99 percent will never be stable. I understand that the gaps between rich and poor are not new, but just as the child in a slum today can see the skyscraper nearby, technology now allows any person with a smartphone to see how the most privileged among us live and the contrast between their own lives and others. Expectations rise, then, faster than governments can deliver, and a pervasive sense of injustice undermine people’s faith in the system.

Welcome to capitalism, president Obama.

He continues: So how do we fix this imbalance? We cannot unwind integration any more than we can stuff technology back into a box. Nor can we look to failed models of the past. If we start resorting to trade wars, market distorting subsidies, beggar thy neighbor policies, an overreliance on natural resources instead of innovation — these approaches will make us poorer, collectively, and they are more like to lead to conflict. And the stark contrast between, say, the success of the Republic of Korea and the wasteland of North Korea shows that central, planned control of the economy is a dead end.

What is laughable is that he just explained how the US is working. The US is always engaging in trade wars and market distorting subsidies against other countries. The US Dollar is based oil, so the US economy is indeed over-reliant on oil and several wars and coups staged by the US have been about their global dominance over oil.

That a US-president attacks the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) while praising their south Korean puppets is nothing new either, but the imaginary image made up is of a new calibre. Obama can speak how much he like about social progress, but that doesn’t change facts. The US is considered to be the richest country in the world, but still 18 homeless per 10,000 people. South Korea that Obama consider so successful also have the same social problems. If Obama ever went to the DPRK himself, he would know that the economy and social progress is flourishing without capitalism in the DPRK, despite the countless embargoes imposed by the imperialists. While empty houses outnumbers the homeless in the US by five times (and similar in other capitalist countries), housing is provided free of charge to all citizens of the DPRK by the revolutionary government. As you know, capitalism only provides basic services necessary to live a decent life if you can afford it, and would rather have empty houses without generating money, then have people living there for less than what the capitalist intend to earn. As the government of the DPRK is subordinated to the Korean people, there would never be any issues that capitalism brings. When did we ever vote for capitalism and its continuous problems such as unemployment homelessness? While the US makes things that homeless people often are doing, illegal,homelessness would never be accepted in the DPRK, neither by the people nor its government.

The Hypocrisy Surrounding Thae Yong Ho

As many are well-aware of by now, Thae Yong Ho, a former diplomat to DPRK’s embassy in London defected to south Korea. South Korean Unification Ministry spokesman Jeong Joon Hee said that Thae Yong Ho decided to defect because of “his disgust with the government of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, his yearning for South Korean democracy and worries about the future of his children” or have sometimes been quoted as he “yearned for a liberal and democratic country”. Why you would go to south Korea when yearning for a liberal and democratic country would be as moving to Ireland as you want to live in a country where you have great abortion rights. The current south Korean government under president Park Geun Hye have been very efficient when it comes to banning opposition parties and trade unions, but that is also what Park Geun Hye and her friends consider “liberal” and “democratic”.

Thae Yong Ho was instructed to return home in June for questioning as regards the embezzlement of huge amount of state funds, leakage of state secrets for money and rape of a minor, and the Central Public Prosecutors Office of the DPRK looked into his crimes and issued a legal document on starting the investigation on July 12. That is also when he decided to escape. Thae and his family have now been smuggled out of Britain with the help of US and British intelligence agents to a US military base in Germany, where they then boarded a plane escorted by two Typhoon fighter jets. A lot of questions have been raised after this spectacular escape.

As an investigation against him was undergoing, why did he have to escape at this convenient moment? Britain have demonstrated that they have no respect for the law of the DPRK. Considering the circumstances though, as one of the charges against him was leakage of state secrets for money, it is not a surprise that it is in the interest of the British imperialists to protect their spy.

When it comes to the case of Julian Assange, who has been sheltered by the Ecuadorian embassy in London for over four years, the British authorities were very eager to get him out. According to their own story, the British authorities would like to extradite him to Sweden for questioning in four alleged sexual offences. Even though Julian Assange is granted asylum in Ecuador since 2012, he is still risking arrest if leaving the embassy. Britain was even talking about to go in and arrest Assange based on the “Diplomatic and Consular Premises Act 1987”, but was later retracted after condemnations from Ecuador’s Foreign Minister Ricardo Patiño and President Rafael Correa due to its nature as a clear breach of international law and the protocols set out in the Vienna Convention. It’s likely that British authorities backed off as the world was watching them and risking their “good name” wasn’t worth it. If Assange is leaving the embassy, it is most likely that he won’t be extradited to Sweden, but the United States where he will face the death penalty or life imprisonment for his involvement in WikiLeaks and its exposure of atrocities committed by the US. The Swedish authorities have now finally agreed to meet Assange for questioning inside the embassy, something that he requested several years ago.

As Britain clearly have demonstrated its willingness to extradite someone for his alleged sexual offences, why can’t they do the same when it comes to a DPRK citizens who allegedly raped a minor?

Thae Yong Ho have made some minor blunders before that is now making it more obvious that he have been working for Western intelligence services over a longer period of time. Thae provided the visa to the right-winged BBC reporter Rupert Wingfield-Hayes, who was expelled from the DPRK in May after constantly insulting his guides and other Koreans he met. In the episode of “Panorama” he featured in, he even said that the children in a newly opened Children Hospital in Pyongyang were actors. Many racist groups around Europe have used the same mentality when attacking apathetic refugee children arriving alone, for faking their apathy. Thae have also been among those who advocates an opening of the DPRK to Western investment. It might not sound to bad to a layman, but that is what anti-DPRK propagandists are talking about where they believe that the DPRK in that way would become a “new” China and abandon socialism.

That the DPRK would abandon socialism is far away from the truth and is more like an unrealistic vision by the capitalists, but when you have a closer look at the ties between Thae and other advocates of capitalism it makes more sense. Thae was a regular visitor to meetings organised by the Communist Party of Great Britain (Marxist-Leninist)(CPGB-ML). The CPGB-ML officially supports China and consider it a socialist country. How a group that consider themselves to be Marxist-Leninist also consider China to be socialist does only have one explanation – they are not Marxist-Leninist. We can be certain that Chairman Mao Zedong would condemn China and other revisionists such as the CPGB-ML. A logical explanation to the CPGB-ML’s stance on China is that one of their central committee members, Keith Bennett, have earned huge amounts of money from capitalist ventures with British-Chinese ventures. CPGB-ML’s chairman Harpal Brar, owns numerous residential properties in West London and part-owns a company in Kashmir.

1471438513_thae-yong-ho-north-korea-defection

Thae Yong Ho (left) at a CPGB-ML meeting along with their capitalist chairman Harpal Brar (right).

It is reported that several members of the CPGB-ML walked out in protest of the business interests of Harpal Brar and Keith Bennett and some former members have also stated that not simply the business dealings but their perception of Keith Bennett as a “collaborator with imperialism” and the fact that he is protected and shielded by Harpal Brar and other leaders of their party. The fact that all the material on China and Korea in their own magazine Lalkar is written by Bennett, doesn’t make it less curious. The CPGB-ML is one of the most outspoken anti-Juche parties and their leaders are known for using entryism in previous organisations. That they have been working with someone like Thae whom they can walk the capitalist road together with is not surprising.

The allegations against Thae have apparently not came out of nowhere, but the whole story about defection for the reason that he wanted some south Korean “democracy” or a “liberal” society is apparently fabricated in retrospect – why else would he disappear after being requested to answer to these allegations and why else would he disappear and reappear over a month later that he was asked to participate in the investigation. For a party whom call themselves friends of Korea, they have since Thae’s defection not condemned it besides having a few lines written on their youth organisation (Red Youth) web:
This no doubt reflects some deep difficulties he felt he could not resolve, and is a personal tragedy for Thae and his family. We knew him and are saddened by his decision, which came apparently ‘out of the blue’.

The revisionists of the CPGB-ML have apologised on Thae’s behalf with words like “a revolutionary may fail, in conviction, courage or ability. We all face failure in all the great, and sometimes petty, tasks we set ourselves, after all.”… how corruption and rape of a minor is relevant in this case is not explained by these “friends” of Korea. CPGB-ML have clearly stated that Thae’s previous work with them can’t be undermined due to his crimes.

KCNA Commentary Accuses S. Korean Regime of Orchestrating Fresh Smear Campaign against DPRK

Pyongyang, August 20 (KCNA) — The south Korean puppet regime is busy ratcheting up the anti-DPRK smear campaign and confrontation.

Of late, the Park Geun Hye group of traitors in south Korea carried out an operation to bring to south Korea a DPRK’s diplomat who fled his mission in London with his family for fear of legal punishment for his crimes.
He was instructed to return home in June last for questioning as regards the embezzlement of huge amount of state funds, leakage of state secrets for money and rape of a minor.

The Central Public Prosecutors Office of the DPRK looked into his crimes and issued a legal document on starting the investigation on July 12.
He deserved a legal punishment for his crimes, but he took to flight, betraying his country and parents and other kith and kin. He thus revealed himself as human scum bereft of elementary sense of moral obligation and conscience.

As already reported, the south Korean puppet regime committed such a hideous terrorism as kidnapping innocent citizens of the DPRK in daylight and taking them to south Korea. Not content with this, it is using the above-said bete noire for the anti-DPRK smear campaign and confrontation in a sinister bid to tarnish the DPRK’s international prestige at any cost and divert elsewhere the south Korean public criticism of its unpopular rule.

Great irony is that the south Korean puppet group is working hard to help the criminal improve his image by floating sheer lies that he was in charge of the party work at his mission and he was a son of an anti-Japanese revolutionary fighter and the like.
A dumping ground is full of blowflies.

The already tattered anti-DPRK smear campaign kicked off by the Park Geun Hye regime with criminals and human scum involved, taken aback by the ever-rising prestige of the DPRK, would only throw it into a bottomless quagmire.

What merits a serious attention is that the British authorities, who paint their country as a law-governed state, handed him to the south Korean puppet regime hell-bent on confrontation with the fellow countrymen in the DPRK in disregard of its legitimate demand for sending back the criminal and the international practice on his extradition.

From the outset of the incident the DPRK had informed the UK of what he committed and asked for his extradition for investigation.

However, the UK handed over the fugitive and his family carrying no passports to the south Korean puppet forces, contrary to its duty to protect the foreign diplomats in its country, thereby besmirching its image as a law-governed state.
By whisking off the criminal the UK left such indelible blot as getting involved in the crime and inciting the south Korean regime’s confrontation with the fellow countrymen in the DPRK.

Such act against elementary good faith perpetrated by the UK would only further deteriorate the complicated north-south relations and it would not do the UK good either. -0-
