Pyongyang, November 30 (KCNA) — The three-revolution red flag movement is in full gear in Korea. It was against the backdrop of the movement sweeping the whole society that more than 630 units including the mechanical engineering research institute of the Academy of Sciences, the Tanchon Ship Repair Works, the Sunchon Koryo Medicine Factory and the Paektusan Architectural Research Institute won the title of the three-revolution red flag this year.
The three-revolution red flag movement is an all-people mass movement to accelerate socialist and communist construction by energetically carrying out the ideological, technical and cultural revolutions. This movement has brought about a fresh turn in all fields of socialist construction despite very difficult conditions of the country in recent years.
The single-hearted unity of the leader, the party and the people grew stronger than ever before and the politico-ideological position of the revolutionary ranks was further consolidated in the course of the “arduous march” and socialist forced march.
This movement also produced many heroes and heroines and men and women of distinguished services of the times, who have devotedly struggled for the society and collective and encouraged the people to fully display the communist trait of working and living in a revolutionary manner, helping and leading each other forward.
In the fields of science and technology, satellite “Kwangmyongsong 1” was successfully launched and new scientific inventions and technical innovation proposals were introduced into production to lay a foundation for the nation’s economic revitalization. Meanwhile, a large number of working people became engineers and assistant engineers by going through university-level factory colleges, farm colleges, fishermen’s colleges and various correspondence courses.
Today this movement serves as a driving force in bringing about a fresh turn in the Korean people’s ideological and moral traits and their style of work and accelerating the economic and cultural construction and building a powerful nation despite manifold ordeals and difficulties.
The three-revolution red flag movement that started in November 1975 signifies the development in depth of the Chollima movement in which brought about such a world startling historic event as completing socialist industrialization from scratch after war in a matter of 14 years.
