For Peace on the Korean Peninsula
The People for Achieving Peace and Reunification including 84 other civic organizations and personages formed a committee for promoting peace candlelight and held a press conference in front of the US embassy in Seoul on May 21. The spring of peace is in the balance, the committee deplored through its press release. The US has threw hurdles in the way of the DPRK-US summit by forcing unilateral concessions from the DPRK, it charged and added that Bolton and other hardliners are increasing sanctions and pressure on the DPRK. In a press release, the committee demanded that the US discontinue such provocative actions as war exercises if it is truly interested in the dialogue with the DPRK. It called for changing the candlelight, symbol of democracy, into symbol of peace and holding it up until peace has settled in the Korean Peninsula and the country has been reunified. About seventy civic groups including the People's Solidarity for Revising Unequal SOFA …

Provocative action challenging the atmosphere for peace and reunion The south Korean military authorities, together with the U.S., have been staging the large-scale 2018 Max Thunder joint air combat drill throughout south Korea since May 11 at a time when the Korean nation in the north, south and abroad and world peace-loving people are delighted at development of inter-Korean relations and détente of the Korean Peninsula thanks to the adoption of historic Panmunjeom Declaration.  Many F-22 Raptor stealth fighters are involved in the drill as against the previous year. The exercise aiming at a preemptive air strike at the DPRK and gain of air supremacy is a risky provocation act as it casts a cloud over fence-mending of inter-Korean relationship, détente of the Korean Peninsula and the scheduled DPRK-U.S. summit. Members of the People’s Democratic Party held a news conference in front of an air base in Gwangju on May 15 and 16. It strongly demanded immediate halt to the joint drill, sayin…

Marking the 38th Gwangju popular uprising

Marking the 38th Gwangju popular uprising
It has been 38 years since the Gwangju popular uprising. The Gwangju Popular Uprising in 1980 was a bloody anti-U.S., anti-fascist patriotic struggle staged by the south Korean people to put an end to the U.S. colonial rule, ferocious fascist military dictatorial regime and to achieve independence, democracy and reunification. The uprisers seized the city for ten days, dealt a telling blow at the protracted military fascist dictatorship and, shook the U.S. colonial rule to its very foundation. It is 38 years since the uprising but the desire of the brave participants in the resistance to see an independent and democratic new society and achieve the reunification of the country has not yet come true. The U.S. has posed itself as master of south Korea and inflicted indescribably horrible disasters and sufferings upon the Korean nation. The pro-U.S. conservative force, which accepted the baton from past military fascist junta, had been given deserved …

BSCPRKP denounces south Korean authorities for undermining peace and dialogue on the Korean peninsula

18th of May 2018
The British Solidarity Committee For Peace and Reunification issued a statement concerning the suspension of inter-Korean talks :
 Recently Ri Son Gwon, chairman of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country (CPRC) of the DPRK clarified that "the DPRK took a resolute step of postponing the north-south high-level talks indefinitely"
This apparent breakdwon in inter-Korean relations is entirely due to the south Korea authorities who proceeded with the holding of the Max Thunder airborne war exercise against People's Korea , despite the fact that only 3 weeks before they had signed a joint statement with the DPRK at Panmunjom in which both sides agreed not to allow hostile actions to be conducted each other .Worse still they allowed a traitor and turncoat  to slander the supreme leadership of the DPRK and the socialist system of the DPRK in the centre of Seoul. This is a grave provocation against the DPRK .
 If the south Korean authorities …

Abolition of NSL

Image
South Korean people are carrying on their drive to abolish an anti-democratic and anti-national “National Security Law” impeding social democracy and national reunification.

Workers in Busan held a press conference outside the Busan city office on May 9 to announce a declaration signed by the workers in demand of the abolition of "the National Security Law".

They carried placards written “Abolish the NSL!” and “Democracy without liberty of politics and ideology is phony”.

They in the declaration branded the NSL as an anti-reunification law blocking the independent reunification through confrontation with fellow countrymen and an anti-democratic and anti-human rights law violating the basic rights of the people.



As long as the anti-democratic and anti-reunification “National Security Law” unheard-of in the world is enforced, it is hard to expect any political change and building of a democratic society, they contended.

The NSL is the root of evil legacies and the NSL is the …

Pyongyang, May 17 (KCNA) -- Ri Son Gwon, chairman of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country (CPRC) of the DPRK gave an answer to a question raised by KCNA Thursday in connection with the fact that the south Korean authorities are trying to shift the responsibility for the rupture of the north-south high-level talks on to the DPRK.

The south Korean authorities launched the extremely adventurous 2018 Max Thunder joint air combat exercises aimed at precision strike on key strategic objects of the DPRK and the seizure of the air control together with the U.S., he said, and went on: On the other hand, they let human scum hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK and its social system and speak ill of the historic Panmunjom Declaration at the "National Assembly".

In this regard the DPRK took a resolute step of postponing the north-south high-level talks indefinitely until the south Korean authorities take a responsible measure, and notified it to…

Now the Korean nation in the north, south and abroad is hailing the third inter-Korean summit and the adoption of Panmunjeom Declaration. But only conservative group is casting a vicious slur on it and disturbing the atmosphere of inter-Korean relations. As for the successful Panmunjom summit meeting, the opposition Liberty Korea Party and its head Hong Joon-pyo are busying themselves in playing down its meaning and success while claiming "it is no more than the south-north camouflaged peace offensive" The south Korean conservative group is malignantly slandering the Panmunjom Declaration published at the Panmunjom summit meeting, claiming it is "a press release written on words of the north" and "it is nothing but a feast of words." Not content with this, the group is crying out for resolutely checking the authorities' intention to make the Panmunjeom Declaration be ratified at the "National Assembly", saying that "i…
