Pyongyang, May 19 (KCNA) — The Kwangju popular resistance was a historic great deed as it brought a great rupture to the colonial rule of the U.S. imperialists and put the movement for reforming the south Korean society on a new orbit of the anti-U.S. struggle for independence. The deputy chief of the Japan Mission of the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front Wednesday said this in a statement issued on the occasion of the 25th
anniversary of the Kwangju Popular Uprising, according to a news report.
Our anti-U.S. struggle for independence and reunification has entered a higher stage of the actions to drive the U.S. forces out of south Korea through an all-people struggle, the statement noted, and continued:
It is the historic national task whose fulfillment brooks no further delay to put an end to the U.S. domination and interference and build an independent and reunified, new country without GIs, a source of war and all evils. “Let us not allow the U.S. forces’ presence in south Korea to go beyond 60 years!” This is the general goal of our actions.
The reality urgently calls on all the people to turn out in the anti-outsider struggle for independence in order to terminate the U.S. colonial rule and frustrate Japan’s wild ambition for reinvasion.
The patriotic people from all walks of life should revive the spirit displayed during the May 18 Kwangju resistance and wage a courageous struggle for independent reunification and thus make this year marking the 60th anniversaries of the country’s liberation and the U.S. forces’ occupation of south Korea a year of their total withdrawal, the statement urged.
