Pyongyang, May 18 (KCNA) — A spokesman for the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front in a statement on May 17 on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the heroic Kwangju Popular Uprising called on all south Koreans to turn out in a decisive all-out anti-U.S. struggle to put an end to the colonial domination of the U.S. imperialists that has lasted since the middle of the last century, according to Kuguk Jonson Internet site.
He stressed that the Kwangju uprising was a heroic great deed as it demonstrated the indomitable will of the people for independence, democracy and reunification and a historic turning point in bringing about a new phase in the anti-U.S. movement for independence.
The ardent desire of the participants in the uprising to see a society free from outsiders has not yet come true, he said, and went on:
All people should indict the U.S., the arch criminal which orchestrated the massacre of Kwangju citizens, before the world public, force the U.S. to apologize and compensate for it and wage a vigorous struggle to frustrate the U.S. moves for domination, interference and a war against the north.
They should also struggle to smash Japan’s moves for reinvasion while waging the struggle to put an end to the U.S. colonial rule.
It is necessary to foil Japan’s brigandish attempt to grab Tok Islet and its moves to distort history and the machinations of the U.S. and Japan to ignite a war against the north.
All people should realize the three forms of cooperation in the spirit of “By our nation itself” and drive the U.S. imperialist aggressors out of south Korea and surely accomplish the historic cause of national reunification by the concerted efforts of all Koreans.
We the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front will join the people from all walks of life in their dynamic struggle to make this year a year of the withdrawal of the U.S. forces and a year of the country’s reunification in the same spirit as was displayed during the heroic Kwangju Popular Uprising.
