DPRK and its Right to Be

Democratic People's Republic of Korea Is Continuing the Revolution and Living its Own Way

74th Anniversary of the Founding of the DPRK, Pyongyang, Korea.

An online meeting jointly organised by the Korean Friendship Association UK (KFA UK) and the Friends of Korea (Britain) (FoK) under the title of "People's Korea Continuing the Revolution and Living its Own Way " took place on December 10.

Dr Dermot Hudson, Chair of KFA UK introduced the meeting by saying that it is important to remember the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il and recall his life by emphasising that the revolution continues.

Michael Chant, Secretary of the FoK, explained that Friends of Korea seeks to unite all progressive forces around the principle that the DPRK has the right to exist, follow its chosen course, and live in its own way. Friends of Korea calls on all democratic people to stand with the Korean people against the hostility and aggressive policy of the US, in which Britain follows the lead of the US, and to stand with the Korean people in their heroic efforts to bring about peace on the Korean Peninsula, and reunification on the basis that the Korean nation is one.

Today, the DPRK stands proudly second to none in the family of nations, Michael Chant said. Despite the brutal racist and illegal sanctions that the US imposed on the DPRK during the Korean War, which have increased in intensity with successive US imperialist administrations, the DPRK prevails and thrives despite the most arduous and trying conditions.

Under the leadership of Kim Jong Un and the Workers' Party of Korea, the entire people of the DPRK have been mobilised to strengthen their socialist independent economy, and uphold the DPRK's independence and right to be. As one, they work collectively to improve the standard of living of the people, deepen and widen the people's culture, and maintain the nation's dignity.

Michael Chant said that Friends of Korea calls for the working class and people to stand with the people of the DPRK for their right to be, and that the British state and its governments must abandon their hostile anti-democratic, anti-communist policies toward the DPRK in the interests of peace.

He concluded by saying that we wish the DPRK every success in its work to secure peace and prosperity for their nation and to put an end to more than 70 years of US-engineered division, tension and strife on the Korean Peninsula.

The online meeting was conducted in a serious atmosphere, emphasising that just as the people of the DPRK have lived and are living in their own way, so must all attempts to stifle the DPRK's right to be, be opposed by all who love justice.
