The full text of the slogans reads:
We greet the 60th anniversary of the glorious Workers’ Party of Korea on the road of the sacred Songun revolution.
The great leader Comrade Kim Il Sung founded our Party on October 10, Juche 34 (1945), on the basis of the anti-Japanese revolutionary traditions. This was a historic event which opened up a new era in building the socialist ruling Party of Juche type.
Under the banner of the Juche idea during the six decades our Party has made great achievements by leading to victory the most difficult and complex struggles in our times such as the deep-going social revolutions, the grim war, the gigantic building of socialism and the battle without gunshot in defence of socialism.
In the course of opening up the era of the Workers’ Party, which is most brilliant in the nation’s history of five thousand years, shouldering the destiny of the country and nation, our Party has developed into a seasoned general staff of revolution which enjoys the people’s absolute trust. It has acquired a high authority as the vanguard in the struggle for independence against imperialism and as the defender of justice.
Our Party, army and people are now vigorously advancing toward the high eminence of a great prosperous powerful socialist nation under the Songun revolutionary leadership of the great leader Comrade Kim Jong Il.
For a long time since its foundation, our Party has invariably maintained its revolutionary character as the party of its leader and faithfully carried forward the leader’s revolutionary cause generation after generation. This is the great pride of our Party.
The 60th anniversary of the Party is a historic occasion for adding luster to the immortal exploits made by the great Comrade Kim Il Sung in our Party building, in the revolutionary cause of Juche and in carrying out the human cause of independence as well as a noteworthy political event which would demonstrate the might of Songun Korea where the whole Party, the entire army and all the people are united with a single mind behind the revolutionary leadership.
This year we commemorate the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the country as well as that of the foundation of the Party. It is an auspicious event to greet the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Korea when the might and authority of the Republic are daily rising under the Party’s Songun leadership.
Our Party is now calling on the whole Party, the entire army and all the people to accelerate the general advance of Songun revolution forcefully to brighten this year which marks the 60th anniversaries of the Party and national liberation as a year of proud victory, as the most worthwhile year that increases the might of Songun and effects a decisive change in the building of a great prosperous powerful nation.
Although the imperialist reactionaries are stepping up their maneuvers to isolate and strangle our Republic and although difficulties lie ahead of our revolution, we will surely build a great prosperous powerful socialist country of Juche now that we have the great Party’s leadership, the unconquerable revolutionary armed forces and the unbreakable single-minded unity.
Convinced that all the Party members, the soldiers of the People’s Army and the people will make great innovations unprecedented in our history of the nation-building with the firm determination and a high aim and become honorable victors in the grand general advance of the Songun era, the Central Committee and the Central Military Commission of the Workers’ Party of Korea publish the joint slogans on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of Party founding.
