Pyongyang, January 8 (KCNA) — The Central Committee of the National Democratic Front of South Korea (NDFSK) in a letter issued on the New Year Juche 87 (1998) called upon all the people to open a new epochal phase of independence, democracy and reunification full of confidence in certain victory and optimisim in the New Year, Seoul-based radio Voice of National Salvation said.
The letter describes last year as a year of struggle and advance that the national democratic forces of South Korea energetically led the struggle against the colonial “civilian”-veiled dictatorial forces, driving the Kim Young Sam “regime” into a pitfall of ruin.
Independence, democracy and reunification, it notes, still remain the three major objectives and cardinal tasks for shaping the destinies of the South Koreans.
It says a halt to the U.S. domination over and interference in the internal affairs of South Korea, its colony, and the withdrawal of the U.S. troops from the region should be put to the fore in the anti-U.S. struggle for independence this year, and the spear of all the struggles should be directed to this.
It says the anti-fascist struggle for democracy should be focused on the abolition of the “National Security Law,” the dismantling of the “Agency for National Security Planning,” the release of prisoners of conscience and the liquidation of the “civilian”-veiled regime’s scandals.
In the movement for national reunification this year the principle of national independence should be maintained, anti-communist, anti-north manoeuvrings of splittists be smashed and the struggle for achieving the independent reunification with great national unity should be invigorated on a nationwide scale, it says.
All the patriotic national democratic forces should cherish the faith in sure realisation of independence, democracy and reunification, follow the Juche idea, awaken broad segments of people to the greatness of the General Kim Jong Il, defeat the opportunist “theory of movement reform” with the Juche-based theory of change, while steadily expanding the fighting ranks, it adds.
