Pyongyang, June 8 (KCNA) — An anti-Japanese rally of civic, social, youth and student organizations took place in Seoul on June 4 on the occasion of
the 41st anniversary of the June 3 uprising, according to a media report.
Speakers at the rally queried how can there be reconciliation with Japan which refuses an apology and compensation for its past crimes and does not reflect on history, persistently claiming that the settlement of the past was completed with the conclusion of the treacherous south Korea-Japan “agreement” on June 3, 1964.
The resolution read out at the rally called for launching an all-people anti-Japanese campaign, succeeding to the spirit of independence against outside forces of the June 3 uprising, stating that the bitter rancor in failing to wrest apology and compensation from Japan is now turning into hostile feelings and resentment at the moves of the Japanese rightist forces to revive militarism.
The resolution demanded Japan apologize for its “claim to Tok Islet” and distortion of history.
After the rally the participants marched up to the Japanese embassy, chanting slogans condemning Japan’s criminal acts, and handed a letter of protest to the embassy.
