|Description||Workers World congratulates the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea on the 60th anniversary of its founding. In 1948, when it defied the imperialist world by refusing to bow down before the U.S. occupation of southern Korea and declared its existence as an independent republic committed to socialist development in the north, few of the capitalist pundits thought it would survive one year, let alone 60. |
The Korean people and their revolutionary leaders have shown extraordinary ability and willpower in keeping their commitment. They have faced ferocious aggression from U.S. imperialism that never ended, even after the heroic Korean People’s Army forced the Pentagon to accept a ceasefire in 1953 after three years of invasion and devastating war.
They have skillfully defended the country and deterred more threats of aggression by building up their armed strength, while at the same time relying on the consciousness of the people as the ultimate safeguard of their revolutionary gains.
What all Koreans want, and what the U.S. has done everything to prevent, is the reunification of their divided people. First Kim Il Sung, and now Kim Jong Il, both great leaders of the struggling people of Korea, have pursued that goal vigorously. The slogan “Korea is one!” today expresses that desire. We are sure it will become a reality as U.S. imperialism’s hold over the world is weakened by the struggling masses everywhere.
U.S. out of Korea!
Long live the DPRK!
