Pyongyang, May 8 (KCNA) — The U.S. forces present in south Korea have dropped at random bombs for actual fighting at the bombing range in Maehyang-ri, Hwasong City, Kyonggi Province, claiming heavy losses in lives of the residents of the nearby village and destroying hundreds of farm houses five years ago. Denouncing the thrice-cursed atrocities, the North Headquarters of the Nationwide Special Committee for Probing the Truth behind the GIs’ Massacres issued an appeal to the south Korean compatriots Saturday.
The crimes committed by the U.S. imperialists in Maehyang-ri on May 8, 2000, are one more disgraceful record which brings into bolder relief the true colors of the Yankees who have committed mass killings, destruction and pillage, exercising the extraterritorial right in south Korea for decades, the document says.
The GIs’ crimes in south Korea are unprecedented in the world history of the occupation forces, it says, and calls upon the south Korean compatriots as follows.
Let all of us to turn out in the anti-U.S. war to put an end to the U.S. military presence and colonial domination over south Korea under the banner “Let the U.S. military presence in south Korea not go beyond 60 years!”
South Koreans from all walks of life should see through the dangerous “transfer” and ‘relocation” of the U.S. military bases in south Korea, determinedly oppose them and push ahead with more vigorous anti-American struggle for the complete withdrawal of the U.S. military bases and the pullout of the U.S. forces.
The south Korean people should turn out in a powerful struggle for the abolition of all the humiliating and shackling “treaties” and “agreements” imposed by the U.S.
All the south Koreans should bitterly denounce the U.S. war moves to invade the northern half of Korea and turn out in a struggle to frustrate the U.S. arms buildup and war provocation moves in south Korea.
The appeal calls upon the south Korean people to turn out more vigorously in the anti-American struggle for independence to achieve peace and reunification through national cooperation by the concerted efforts of the nation under the uplifted banner of the historic June 15 North-South Joint Declaration.
