Democratic Korea in solidarity with Occupy movement

From the Korean Central News Agency:

Pyongyang, October 18 (KCNA) — The working masses’ struggle against capitalism was staged all at once across the world on Oct. 15 and 16. This was the biggest organized one ever in history of capitalism spanning more than 300 years.

Taking part in it were millions of people from all walks of life in more than 1 500 cities in 80 odd countries.

This struggle was erupted at Wall Street in Manhattan of New York in the United States, the heart of the capitalist economy and a synonym for monopolistic capital on Sept. 17. Under the slogan of “Occupy Wall Street!” dozens of protestors set up tents outside a stock exchange in New York to go into an action of protest. This turned in a twinkle to a chain movement across the U.S. including Washington, Boston, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Democratic Korea says attempt to link with ship sinking a stupid plot

Antiwar activists pay a silent tribute to victims of the sunken South Korean naval ship Cheonan before their news conference near the presidential Blue House in Seoul April 16, 2010, to demand a stop to what they say are baseless accusations that North Korea sank the South Korean naval ship. The banner (bottom) reads, "Don't interrupt North Korea-U.S. talks with baseless rumours that North Korea attacked the South Korean ship".

Anti-war activists pay a silent tribute to victims of the sunken South Korean naval ship Cheonan before their news conference near the presidential Blue House in Seoul April 16, 2010, to demand a stop to what they say are baseless accusations that North Korea sank the South Korean naval ship. The banner (bottom) reads, "Don't interrupt North Korea-U.S. talks with baseless rumours that North Korea attacked the South Korean ship".

Fight Back News Service is circulating the following article from the Korea Central News Agency (KCNA), a press outlet for the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, on the March 26 sinking of south Korean navy vessel.

Military Commentator Denies Involvement in Ship Sinking

Pyongyang, April 17 (KCNA) — A military commentator Saturday issued an article disclosing the truth about the “story about linkage with the north” floated by the south Korean group of traitors.

There occurred an accident in which “Chonan”, 1 400 ton-warship of the south Korean puppet navy, sank all of a sudden in the waters between Paekryong Island and Taechong Island in the West Sea of Korea at night of March 26, the article said, and went on:

Though the sunken large ship belongs to the south side, we have so far regarded the accident as a regretful accident that should not happen in the light of the fact that many missing persons and most of rescued members of the crew are fellow countrymen forced to live a tiresome life in the puppet army.

Failing to probe the cause of the sinking of the ship, the puppet military warmongers, right-wing conservative politicians and the group of other traitors in south Korea are now foolishly seeking to link the accident with the north at any cost.

American trespasser interviewed in north Korea

“I trespassed on the border owing to a wrong understanding of the DPRK. This was caused by the West’s false propaganda."

The following is from Proletarian Online, the website of the Communist Party of Great Britain (Marxist-Leninist). The CPGB-ML introduces the article, saying “The following article first appeared in the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on 5 February. We reproduce it here with thanks.”

What is especially interesting to note is that since the DPRK magnanimously released Robert Park, a Korean American who illegally entered the DPRK carrying printed materials demanding that Kim Jong Il step down from power and be put on trial for war crimes, he has not retracted this statement. Nor, it would appear, has he made any statements against the DPRK, despite, we can be quite sure, very considerable pressure to do so, and much to the embarrassment of such anti-communist bodies as Christian Solidarity Worldwide, who noisily campaigned for his release.
