Pyongyang, June 11 (KCNA) — The U.S. imperialists deserve to be condemned by the world people for engineering the massacre of participants in the Kwangju Popular Uprising and must apologize and compensate to the bereaved families of the martyrs. Martin Lotscher, chairman of the Swiss Committee for Supporting Korea’s Reunification, said this in his solidarity letter sent to the Pyongyang Mission of the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front on May 23 on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Kwangju Popular Uprising.
He noted in his letter that the heroic Kwangju Popular Uprising on May 18, 1980 was a great resistance that raged in south Korea against the colonial rule of the U.S. imperialists.
The participants in the uprising killed by the military fascists of south Korea under the patronage of the U.S. imperialist occupiers are always remembered as martyrs of the great Korean people, he stressed, and continued:
All the Korean people in the north and the south and overseas will achieve the reunification of the country and drive the U.S. imperialist aggressors out of south Korea before long under the ever-victorious banner of Songun provided by leader Kim Jong Il.
